Main AR for the Chicago Huntsmen, Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson, has shared footage of a game-breaking exploit on St. Petrograd in Modern Warfare, just a week before the Call of Duty League 2020 Season starts. 

Since Modern Warfare’s October release, the professional community has expressed concern at a number of game features and glitches. The concern is understandable, as a poorly timed glitch could influence the outcome of a professional match.

The pro community is no stranger to heated debates regarding exploits and glitches. It’s hard not to think of Clayster’s impassioned rant regarding “exploit spots” in Black Ops 3, after his FaZe Clan roster were punished in the CWL.

ActivisionThe CDL starts on January 25.

Regardless, pros just want to see a level playing field so that no one team has the opportunity to manipulate ambiguous game features. 

On January 17, Sanderson shared a video from mid-map on St. Petrograd, showing a bizarre aim assist and name recognition bug.

When prone behind the statue in the middle of St. Petrograd, Arcitys shows that players can benefit from aim assist when aiming through the statue. 

Even more concerning, players can see enemy nameplates when looking through the statue, giving them an incredible advantage from an invulnerable position. 

The video was captioned with multiple question marks and garnered responses from a number of other CoD pros. 

AR for the Seattle Surge, Sam ‘Octane’ Larew, said that “the entire middle of that map is pure fugazery”. 

On a similar note, Prestinni, twin brother of Arcitys, said: “[You’re] telling me you’re getting aim assist under and through the blocks, but not above them? Holy hell. I’m about to be unbeatable on this map.”

Many fans were quick to point out that we are just a week away from the opening weekend of the Call of Duty League. 

In the current CDL ruleset, St. Petrograd is featured in all three competitive game modes.

While Infinity Ward have not yet responded to the glitch, many fans and pros want to see it patched before the CDL starts on January 25.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
