CoD pro Rated bashes teammates, hints at roster changes soon – “No one gives a f*ck”

Professional Call of Duty player Rhys ‘Rated’ Price has slammed his teammates amid their collective struggle in the CWL Pro League. 

Things have not panned out the way they were envisioned for the team that formerly represented Denial Esports in the CWL Pro League.

Not only are the players currently in limbo after the organization’s recent collapse, their performances have not been up to par with what was expected when the roster was first put together during the most recent RosterMania period. 

On June 6, the final day of matches for Division B teams in the Pro League before the upcoming CWL Anaheim major tournament, Rated took to social media and slammed the team’s chemistry and vibes, despite the fact that they were coming off of a 3-2 victory against Enigma6 Group.

“That would be assuming there was team chemistry in the first place,” he wrote in a Reddit reply. “Team doesn’t care about winning or lising together, not watching VODs. Literally the vibe is no one gives a fuck, so I will reflect the same vibe back.”


He took things a step further in a conversation he had on Twitter with former teammate Joshua-Lee ‘Joshh’ Sheppard, revealing that roster changes were likely to take place soon.

“Might as well run it back for Playoffs, Play-In, and Champs,” he said. “Going to be a couple openings here soon, more than likely.”


He also made mention of teammate Carson ‘ Brack’ Newberry specifically, suggesting that the public’s perception of him as a top player may be misguided.

“Brack could literally drop a 0.1 [K/D ratio] over an entire series and people would still say he’s a one man team,” he tweeted. “Yeah, we really wouldn’t have won that series if Brack wasn’t on the team, one man army.”


What the future holds for the ex-Denial squad

If what Rated said comes to fruition, then their squad will indeed be in the market to add some new players to their starting roster. 

One candidate is Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi, who just announced his free agency after being dropped by Splyce, and Luminosity substitute Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman, although it’s unlikely he’d join a team that’s performing as poorly as LG.

They also always have the option of promoting Ryan ‘ZeeK’ Lapierre back to the starting lineup, although the Frenchman seems to have formed a new amateur team with TrainHard eSport.

However, before they can make any changes, the squad will have to try to put their differences aside and regroup at the upcoming CWL Anaheim tournament, where they’ll likely be considered an underdog no matter which group they get placed in. 

MLGAccuracy, who was recently dropped by Splyce, could be someone that the ex-Denial roster tries to recruit in the near future.

The ex-Denial squad is currently 6-12 in Division B of the CWL Pro League, sitting just one game above last-place Enigma6 Group.

While their chances of finishing top-four and clinching an automatic Playoff berth are slim to none, the team can still qualify for the postseason via the Play-In tournament, although that will be a difficult task for any of the bottom eight teams.

Best Fennec loadouts for Warzone and Modern Warfare

The Fennec has now been out for a few months, but you’ll still need to equip the right attachments if you truly wish to master this lightening fast SMG. Here, we break down two of the strongest Fennec loadouts you can use.

The Vector, now known as the Fennec, has been a popular SMG ever since it first graced our screens back in Modern Warfare 2. Packed with a buttery smooth recoil pattern, excellent hip-fire, lightweight, and insanely fast rate of fire –  the Fennec is an absolute beast of a gun. In fact, this deadly machine gun is so lethal that it can tear through multiple enemies in just a blink of an eye. 

This zippy SMG hasn’t taken the crown away from the MP5, but the Fennec is still a popular choice. For many, this weapon is still a go-to, particularly in close-quarters where hyper-aggressive play is rewarded. In order to help you get the most out of the Fennec, we’ve put together two loadouts that you can use to dominate the competition in both Modern Warfare and Warzone. 

Best Fennec loadout for Warzone

Infinity Ward/DexertoBoost the Fennec’s damage range with this deadly loadout.
  • ZLR18” Deadfall 
  • Merc Foregrip
  • Stippled Grip Tape
  • Sleight of Hand
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

While Warzone’s large scale map may favor long to medium range engagements, you’ll still want to equip a weapon that can give you the edge in those close-quarter firefights. This loadout increases the Fennec’s hip fire, while also giving it a little extra range for when you need that added distance. 

First up is the ZLR18” Deadfall. This attachment not only drastically increases your effective damage range, it also ups your recoil control and bullet velocity, helping with the precision it needs when going for those all-important body shots and headshots. While this attachment increases your ADS speed, we think this loss is worth it, especially when you consider how woeful the Fennec’s mid-range damage is. 

The next two attachments are the Merc Foregrip and Stippled Grip Tape, along with the Sleight of Hand perk. Not only will these additions keep the Fennec stable while aiming and hip firing, they will also increase the ADS & sprint to fire speed, improving your reload speed and giving you even greater control when you need to react quickly.

Taking down fully armored players in Warzone can often prove frustrating, but the 40 Round Drum Mags will give you more than enough bullets to shred through many an armored enemy. This attachment is a must for those that want to secure those game-winning squad wipes.

Best Fennec loadout for Modern Warfare multiplayer

Infinity Ward/DexertoThis loadout absolutely obliterates players in close-quarter firefights.
  • ZLR 18″ Deadfall
  • Tac Laser
  • No Stock
  • Merc Foregrip
  • 40 Round Drum Mags

This build is all about melting your opponents in close-quarters combat. The Tac Laser drastically lowers the Fennec’s ADS speed and increases overall stability, while also allowing you to maintain a steady walk while aiming. 

Being able to quickly take care of enemy threats without needing to ADS is a godsend, particularly on smaller maps like Shipment and Rust, where you’ll constantly find yourself running into enemy players. 

Lastly, the Merc Foregrip will also increase your recoil control and hip-fire accuracy, allowing you to quickly fire off the Fennec’s blisteringly fast rounds with deadly precision. Foregoing the stock for this build will give you a slight boost in movement speed for quicker reaction to get away from players, while The ZLR 18” Deadfall and 40 Round Drum Mags should always be a top priority for any Fennec players looking to increase their kill potential, so always try to build your loadout around these core attachments.
