The mysterious Call of Duty insider known as the ‘CoDBurner’ has come back into the spotlight thanks to having leaked a fresh new set of intel on a number of pro players and teams.

As competitive CoD fans were beginning to think that the CoDBurner has disappeared, the infamous insider returned with a bang on March 19, posting leaked information on Reddit.

The CoDBurner’s latest post reveals behind-the-scenes details about Team Envy and Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price, eUnited’s roster controversy, Splyce’s potential roster changes, Red Reserve’s situation with Ben ‘Bance’ Bance, and more.

Team Envy and ACHES

According to the CoDBurner, Team Envy are looking to release their team captain ACHES and replace him with a player more capable of playing with the Maddox RFB assault rifle.

Envy, of course, have not had the greatest season thus far, having placed 9-12 at both CWL Vegas and Fort Worth, while they currently sit 6th in Division B of the CWL Pro League with a 3-4 record. 

SCUF GamingThe CoDBurner claims that Team Envy could soon replace team captain ACHES with a Maddox player.

eUnited’s roster controversy

On March 19, eUnited promoted substitute Chris ‘Simp’ Lehr to the main squad in place of Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan, following their dismal last-place finish at CWL Fort Worth.

In the CoDBurner’s eyes, this confirms his previous report that JKap had tried to get James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks dropped from the team, which led to heavy internal turmoil among the players. 

“My post on eU was right,” the CoDBurner wrote. “If it wasn’t, then you know Clayster would be the first one saying it’s wrong. Everyone knows the vibes backstage at Fort Worth were terrible. And JKap has been trying to scumbag players off other rosters and take their spots after eU wouldn’t drop Clayster.” 

@eUnitedCould eUnited’s March 19 roster change have actually stemmed from JKap trying to “scumbag” Clayster?

Splyce’s roster plans

Despite the fact that Splyce have finished in the top three at both CWL Vegas and Fort Worth, and are currently fourth in Division B of the Pro League, the CoDBurner claims that they are thinking about making a change

According to the Reddit post, Splyce are considering dropping either Ulysses ‘AquA’ Silva or Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley, although it’s unclear who they would intend on trying to bring in.

They always have the option of promoting their substitute, Nick ‘Happy’ Suda, although that doesn’t seem to be under consideration right now. 

@SplyceDespite their strong performances, Splyce are apparently considering replacing either AquA or Jurd.

Red Reserve’s situation with Bance

As has already been announced, Bance’s spot on Red Reserve’s starting squad is under severe jeopardy. According to the CoDBurner, RR are considering moving substitute Conrad ‘Shockz’ Rymarek’ into the starting lineup and releasing Bance after the upcoming week of CWL Pro League matches. 

RR did finish in the top six at CWL Fort Worth, and their 4-3 record in the Pro League gives have a decent chance at directly making the Playoffs.

All signs seem to point to Bance’s time with Red Reserve coming to an end sooner rather than later.

Additional leaked intel

  • Gen.G wanted to bring in eUnited’s Simp instead of Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon during the last Rostermania period but the $100,000 buyout price was set too high.
  • Evil Geniuses are apparently considering dropping Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson for Alex ‘Alexx’ Carpenter, who is currently not in the Pro League.
  • The CoDBurner did not comment on Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner’s situation with 100 Thieves as he did not have any concrete info that wasn’t based on rumors.

Of course, it must be said that all of the information presented above should be taken with a grain of salt, as it’s all based on leaks from the CoDBurner, who has been wrong before.

If any of the changes suggested in the Reddit post are to end up taking place, they will do so when the second Rostermania window opens up on April 5-22.

Iconic Call of Duty Raid map spotted in Black Ops Cold War files

Eight years after its introduction in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops 2’s Raid could finally be returning in a mainline entry as files for the iconic map have been uncovered in Black Ops Cold War.

Treyarch’s fan-favorite Black Ops 2 released in 2012. Since then, we’ve seen eight new titles come and go. In that gap, Raid has only made one other appearance in a global title, that title being Call of Duty Mobile.

While other maps have been rereleased countless times, including seven remakes of Nuketown alone, Raid has been left in the past. However, that’s about to change according to the latest leaks.

After an extended period in the shadows, Raid could finally be thrown back into the spotlight soon. Dataminers have uncovered a line of code relating to the map in Black Ops Cold War, suggesting that we’ll see it return in Season 1.

As a huge influx of Season 1 content slipped through the cracks on December 1, one key line stood out from the pack. ‘S1_map_raid_tu_cairo’ was plucked directly from the latest version of Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, this doesn’t outright confirm Raid is a guarantee for the next Season. This is the first official reference to the map in quite some time, though, so it’s safe to assume Treyarch has been working to bring it back to life.

Raid might finally be back in a mainline CoD title for the first time since 2012.

The original map quickly became a favorite for its unique design. There were distinct sections that paved the way for vast combat opportunities. Both close-range and long-range loadouts could feel right at home on Raid. On one side you had a wide-open area with a high ground advantage for one team next to a  

On the other, you had a circular area perfect for flanking opportunities. Meanwhile, in the middle lane, you’d often catch snipers peeking across from either side in a near-symmetrical layout.

One of the more interesting tidbits from this datamine is the final word. Cairo is the capital of Egypt. The original version of Raid was set in Los Angeles. So when we see this new version, it could have a fresh coat of paint to fit the locale.

Expect to see snipers hanging out across the basketball courts if Raid drops with Season One in Cold War.

It was an extremely popular competitive map throughout the year of its initial release. Given it worked quite well with essentially all objective-based game modes. From Hardpoint to Search and Destroy, Raid was often a favored pick.

Season One of Black Ops Cold War kicks off on December 10. There’s no confirmation we’ll see Raid in-game from this point on, so do take this leak with a grain of salt until then.
