Clayster and Arcitys impressed by former Halo pro in Black Ops 4

After taking down team ‘SZN’ in the losers finals of the CMG ProDown, eUnited duo James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks and Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson explained how impressed they were with the young, upcoming players.

In the otherwise all-professional tournament, ‘SZN’ was a squad made up of mostly players under 18, who will aspire to turn professional within in the next year or so.

Well known amateur players Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal and Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr were part of the roster, but one player which really stood out to Clayster and Arcitys was former Halo pro, Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro.

Shotzzy is the 2018 Halo World Champion, an honor he earned with the dominant Splyce Halo roster in April, but with Halo 5’s competitive lifespan coming to an end, Shotzzy is looking to make a transition to CoD.

Part of Splyce’s ‘Black’ roster for Call of Duty, Shotzzy is currently unable to compete due to age restrictions for the CWL, but once he turns 18, Clayster and Arcitys are worried about how good he might be.

Clayster said after the match “dude once these kids start going to LAN, they’re going to actually be good and it’s going to piss me off. Shotzzy, Simp and iLLeY.” Arcitys agrees, saying “Shotzzy’s fucking disgusting, this guy is so fast. I’ve never been punched faster.”

Black Ops 4 has already seen the rise of some younger players breaking into the top level of CoD, with eUnited’s own Tyler ‘aBeZy’ Pharris one example, placing 2nd at CWL Las Vegas, although he did compete throughout the majority of WWII as well, with limited success.

Former eUnited cadet, McArther ‘Cellium’ Jovel is perhaps the best example, after immediately being recruited to FaZe Clan after turning 18 – however he is yet to prove himself in a LAN environment.

Simp is yet to turn 18, but will be available to play at CWL Fort Forth in February, following his birthday. Meanwhile iLLeY has a longer wait, with his birthday not until October.

During one of the company’s 2020 investors calls, Activision announced that Warzone and Black Ops Cold War will be fully integrated into each other in December, which is a bit later than some players were initially expecting. 

One of the biggest surprises of Black Ops Cold War’s initial announcement was the fact that Warzone, the series’ official battle royale mode, would be fully integrated with the game, marking a huge crossover for the Call of Duty franchise and the first of its kind for the series.

Now, Activision has officially announced during its Q3 financial call that Warzone will be fully integrated into Black Ops Cold War in December 2020. More specifically, during the title’s first official post-launch content season.

Activision has announced that Black Ops Cold War and Warzone will be integrated in December 2020.

Unfortunately, other details about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Warzone are scarce at this time other than the fact that players will be able to use both their Modern Warfare loadouts in the battle royale game. It’ll also feature the same battle pass system as Infinity Ward’s and Treyarch’s titles.

This new integration timeframe means that the battle royale mode will still be a part of Modern Warfare well past Black Ops Cold War’s launch. While it’s pure obviously pure speculation, a new season to hold fans over is no longer out of the question and is entirely possible.

This new season has been a talking point for a while now, with players even able to get the access to an unfinished build of the Makarov pistol from the Black Ops series in Modern Warfare, leading to speculation about the weapon being added soon.

When the crossover was originally announced, there was some speculation about when the crossover would happen, with some people theorizing it would come with Black Ops Cold War, and some speculating that it would be soon after release, so it’s nice that Activision has finally answered the question.
