FaZe Clan’s Doug ‘Censor‘ Martin has confirmed that he plans to compete during the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare season – and says he will win the World Championship.

After two previous retirements, Censor looks to be making his third comeback, after stepping away from competing at the end of the WWII season.

It’s believed that he was set to join Evil Geniuses for the Black Ops 4 season, but the team changed their minds when Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson became available, leaving Censor teamless and out of options only weeks before the season began.

Censor / YouTubeFormer CoD pro Censor is now a popular YouTuber with over 2.5 million subscribers.

He was forced to either start over from the amateur level once again, or retire, and chose the latter, having grinded the entire WWII season from amateur to Pro League, only to find himself back at square one.

Censor hinted at a return to competition earlier in the Black Ops 4 season too, but this never came to fruition. With Modern Warfare now officially announced though, he is doubling down on his intentions.

On June 3, the YouTuber proudly claimed: “I’m winning champs on Modern Warfare next year.”

Of course, immediately there were doubters and naysayers, who highlighted Censor’s previous retirements, and his failure to win the WWII world championship, despite similarly stating frequently that he would.

Martin had a rebuttal lined up however, reminding those who doubt him of his track record, having made successful comebacks previously.

In a final defiant statement, Censor explained that closer to the release of Modern Warfare, on October 25, he will make a video on his YouTube channel revealing his “point of view” on his career that he says will “shock” fans.

The next competitive season of Call of Duty will be the first with the new city-based franchise league, which will undoubtedly shake up rosters, rules and team compositions.

It may be the perfect time for a well-known, albeit doubted, former pro like Censor to make a comeback, but he will have to prove to fellow professionals that he is dedicated, and talented enough, to be worth a spot on a CWL team.

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
