Chicago Huntsmen have revealed Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson as their latest major signing for the Call of Duty League team. 

The World Champion’s transfer was announced by the Huntsmen on May 18, finally confirming that he would be departing from the Florida Mutineers and rejoining his brother Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson on the Chicago side.

He had been rumored to be joining the org in recent weeks and such talk has turned out to be accurate. The reunion between the brothers will be a welcome one for fans of CoD esports, too, and his new team welcomed him with open arms in a tweet – as seen below.

In an official statement, his former team wished him luck on his new journey. They said: “Today we are announcing the transfer of Prestinni to another CDL team. We thank him for his tremendous effort and time with us. His passion for the game and competing will undoubtedly carry him far.”

With the transfer now done and dusted, Prestinni is expected to take the starting lineup spot left by Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman after Chicago made a swap in their lineup.

Huntsmen substitute Jordon ‘General’ General had been practicing with Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon, Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, and Arcitys amid the rumors of a roster change, though it appears he will likely resume his place on the substitute bench following the acquisition of Prestinni.

The last time the twins played together was in August 2019, with their huge World Championship win on eUnited alongside Atlanta FaZe’s Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr and Tyler ‘Abezy’ Pharris, as well as Dallas Empire’s James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks.

If the success they had together during their most recent stint is replicated even closely in the coming months, Huntsmen may have finally found the secret to returning to championship form.

What happens with Gunless remains to be seen. In a tweet posted shortly after the announcement, NRG co-CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez thanked the Canadian for being a “stand-up dude,” adding that they “hope they can find him a home soon.”

This certainly looks to be the end of Gunless’ time as a Chicago Huntsmen player, and only time will tell where he ends up by the end of the season. One thing is clear, though: with the twins back together, the pressure is now on to prove that the best decision was made, and to bring yet another trophy to Huntsmen’s cabinet.

Black Ops Cold War devs address Mastery camo bug & confirm other fixes

Mastery camos in Black Ops Cold War will soon be looking better than ever, Treyarch has confirmed, with an assortment of camo-related fixes on the way in a nearby update.

If you’ve already been hard at work grinding the latest Call of Duty, unlocking the very best camos has likely kept you busy. Reaching that elite Dark Matter cosmetic is always a huge effort, though many players have already hit it just weeks after launch.

Unfortunately, the flashy Mastery Camos haven’t quite lived up to the hype in many regards. Some weapons barely display the unique visual. Small areas of the guns are given the new design while a majority of the weapon stays the same.

The community was naturally disappointed at first, but it turns out these actually aren’t working as intended. Fixes are on the way very soon, as Treyarch has confirmed the top priorities for the next major update.

An example of how minimal Dark Matter currently looks on the M60 due to recent bugs.

First and foremost, we now have confirmation that “unintentional changes to Mastery Camos” will be addressed in the next update. “After our most recent update, some weapons began to display certain Mastery Camo differently,” devs addressed on the official Treyarch Trello board.

While an exact date isn’t quite set in stone for the next update just yet, rest assured it won’t be long. “We are looking to release a fix for this in our next major update,” they confirmed.

So if these issues had you holding back on the Dark Matter grind, there’s no reason not to get back on the hustle. In a matter of days, the camos will be displaying properly and you’ll be able to flex your early accomplishments.

Next up, there are six other major problems that Treyarch is looking into. Some are more vague, such as various console crashes and bugged animations. However, others are more specific.

Prestige leveling should be a bit smoother in the weeks to come. If your level hasn’t been displaying properly, a fix for this is currently in the works.

Outside of bug fixes, Flak Jacket could be addressed in a nearby update.

While no specific changes are on the way just yet, the balance team has also “had discussions” surrounding the power of Flak Jacket. A potential nerf could be on the way given how common the perk has become since launch.

The most recent patch only just went out on November 25, so we likely won’t see anything for a few days at a minimum. At least now have a solid idea of what to expect when the next updates roll around.
