Call of Duty fans that the man behind the infamous ‘CoDBurner’ is “dangerous,” and advised the community to stay clear of him.

The CoDBurner is a mysterious figure who appeared in 2018, and since then has been releasing confidential information about the Call of Duty scene, giving fans of the esport an inside look at the inner workings of their favorite teams, players, and leagues.

Unsurprisingly, this has caused pro players to desperately try and find out who the leaker is, and while Censor claims to know the identity of the CoDBurner and intends to reveal it publicly, he had a stark warning for members of the community about the unknown person.

Censor intends to reveal the true identity of the CoDBurner.

After tweeting that he intended to make a 10 minute video “exposing @EdgarAllanPwn3d for the fraud that he is,” and stating that he would use the revenue from the video to pay for flights to bring fans to CWL Championships in August, Censor posted a warning to his fans and fellow community members.

“After doing some more digging, this CoDBurner guy is DANGEROUS,” wrote the FaZe Clan member on Twitter. “CoD community, STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN.”

Censor also retweeted a post from the ‘EdgarAllanPwn3d’ account, which shows a house that he claims to own, talking about the things he needs to purchase for it.

In response, Censor tweeted that it does not belong to the Twitter account owner, and told anyone attending CWL Finals in Miami to not go there because he is involved in “something really bad!”

Censor has since followed up with more posts, suggesting the CoDBurner uses various fake Twitter accounts to engage with himself, discussing expensive cars, and then congratulating one of his supposed burner accounts for winning a ‘giveaway’.

This same account, @MichaelJGTZ, was the same individual that the @EdgarAllenPwn3d account congratulated for winning a $10,000 giveaway, run by Edgar himself, as Censor highlights

What Censor has found that makes him so cautious of the CoDBurner remains to be seen, but the 24-year-old says that he will be uploading a video on Friday, July 19, which will truly expose the individual behind the notorious account.

Black Ops Cold War dev responds to broken Zombies XP growth

Treyarch has responded to a new issue that is slowing down Black Ops Cold War solo zombies players from leveling up their weapons. They intend to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Players reported the exp growth on their weapons had become increasingly slow. Some experimentation from Reddit user MaharaDTD discovered that it wasn’t impacting public lobby players, but was rather isolated to solo players and those on high round grinds.

Some players reported their guns not leveling up at all between rounds 30 and 100, while others, who played predominantly in co-op lobbies, reported almost no change at all.

The issues come amid a double XP event which should be the perfect time to grind out Zombies games, though. These problems stem from Treyarch combating an XP exploit where players could restart lobbies over and over again to wrack up big amounts – and the knock on effect has been completely ruining games.

Treyarch dev responds to Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapon XP issues

Treyarch dev Josh ‘Foxhound’ Torres announced that their team had confirmed the issue with limited XP growth, responding to the lengthy Reddit discussion with a handful of comments of his own.

“I spoke with the team, and we have identified an issue that was causing lower than intended Weapon XP in both solo Zombies matches and later Zombies rounds. We are looking to release a fix for both of these as soon as possible,” he said.

Torres also confirmed there will not be an extension to the 2XP weekend for zombies players, despite pressure from the community.

He said: “I shared what the team had to share, and then I kept them updated on the community sentiment and conversations. The team investigated and found actual issues. We’ll be fixing them, and we’ll have more 2XP events in the future.”

This means zombies players will need to wait patiently for the chance to grind 2XP boosts and upgrade their guns.
