CoDBurner reckons he knows Gunless’ next move

The CoDBurner believes Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman will leave Rise Nation before the start of the new Call of Duty season, and thinks there are two likely places for him to end up. 

CoDBurner made his claims on his /r/CoDBurnerIntel subreddit, where he regularly posts insider information regarding roster moves.

The burner stated: “From what I hear, LG sticks and adds Gunless, unless ‘rich guy’ buys,” indicating that he thinks the current Luminosity lineup of Formal, Slacked, John and JKap will remain with the organization, and simply add Gunless as their final member.

However, the mysterious ‘rich guy’ could throw a wrench in Luminosity’s plans. The CoDBurner has been reporting for months that a wealthy business owner is desperate to enter Call of Duty esports, and is reportedly offering massive amounts of money to players in an attempt to secure their signature.

CoDBurner believes that the wealthy businessman could make a play for Gunless, and if he did, it may be enough to turn the head of the CWL Seattle MVP.

The Rise Nation player would be a major acquisition if the rich guy could pull it off, and he could possibly use the hype surrounding Gunless as a platform to build a team.

With Call of Duty changing to 5v5, there are plenty of roster moves taking place as organizations attempt to lock down their squads. CoDBurner believes that eUnited will add either Decemate or Classic to their ranks, while he thinks that the current FaZe Clan roster will “stick” with that they’ve got.

Of course, as with all information from the CoDBurner, it’s important to note that all these claims are unsubstantiated and none of the information he posts is guaranteed to be accurate.

Warzone devs confirm secret nerfs to Cold War suppressors will be reverted

Fans of Call of Duty: Warzone will be pleased to know that Season 2’s secret nerfs to the Agency Suppressor and other Black Ops Cold War silencers will be reverted very soon.

As soon as the clock hit zero, tons of Warzone players eagerly logged on for some late-night, Season 2 action. Intrigued by a mysterious ghost ship, an assortment of zombies, new ground loot and two brand-new guns… players became surprised by an unsavory change: weaker Cold War guns.

While the Agency Suppressor was originally weak at range, then buffed to fit in line with Modern Warfare’s Monolithic Suppressor, the attachment’s strength appeared to have been weakened in Season 2.

Murmurings spread around the community quickly, with content creator JGOD then confirming what many had begun suspecting — the Agency Suppressor actually hurts your bullet velocity (again). Fortunately, devs have quickly responded and confirmed that this will be reverted.

As JGOD explores in his video, the new update does ensure that in-game descriptions of attachment values are actually reflective of what they do in the game. So attachments that claim to help bullet velocity will actually do so, which was not the case in the past.

The downside, though, is that this means that the hidden buffs to the Agency Suppressor’s bullet velocity (as seen with the FFAR 1) are now reflective of the attachment information. So, as the game says, bullet velocity is now nerfed.

An immediate detriment, the Monolithic Suppressor was considered the go-to Warzone attachment because velocity buffs ensured players could be more effective at hitting shots on the large map. By reverting the buffs to make the Agency Suppressor similar to Monolithic, the update effectively nerfs all ranged Cold War guns.

As Raven Software tweeted within a day of the new update going live, Agency, Gru and Wrapped Suppressors will be reverted “to their former glory in the next hotfix.” 

This likely means that, in line with the Monolithic Suppressor, these suppressors will enjoy a bullet velocity buff — making them more effective at range and much more viable. 

While it may be frustrating for fans to know that these buffs and nerfs aren’t reflected in the patch notes, one can only hope that the new emphasis on transparency in the in-game attachment descriptions will be reflected in the new hot fix. That could be a huge help, as fans will no longer need to test things out themselves to figure out what attachments truly do.
