One of the highlight matches of the CWL Pro League Stage Two so far was undoubtedly the feisty contest between compLexity and eUnited, as the maps went back and forth before coming to an intense finish.

The two teams came in with similar records, with compLexity sitting at 2-3 series count and eUnited 2-2, but eUnited were likely favorites given their win over Rise Nation.

But eUnited did have a shaky start to week two of Division B with a game five loss to UNILAD, while compLexity had been comfortably beaten 3-0 by OpTic Gaming.

In fact, with the exception of their 3-1 win over Mindfreak, all of eUnited’s matches so far have gone to a deciding game five.

And the same was to be true in this match, as neither team could gain momentum, trading the maps between each other.

The first map required two 40+ kill games from both James “Clayster” Eubanks and Tyler “FeLo” Johnson to prevent a spirited coL performance, but compLexity were the better team in the first SnD, winning 6-2.

A more comfortable 7-2 CTF win for eUnited was answered back again on the second hardpoint, with coL winning 250-139. Game five, almost predicably, went to round eleven, were CompLexity narrowly came out on top.

And after such a narrow defeat – once again in game five – eUnited’s Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson struggled to keep his anger under control – lashing out at the defenseless main stage chair.

It goes to show just how narrow the margin of victory can be at this level, and eUnited will know better than anyone how each map and series win is crucial, after they only just managed to secure their spot at Stage One playoffs.

The win is huge for compLexity, who were in danger of slipping down the rankings, but will be spurred on by this victory.

eUnited (vs Tainted Minds) and compLexity (vs Luminosity) will play their last matches of Division B before the break for CWL Anaheim on Thursday June 7th.

Modern Warfare glitch reveals unreleased Makarov pistol

Infinity Ward adds weapons to Modern Warfare with each new season, though it appears even more have been in the works behind the scenes as a secret pistol was accidentally handed out due to a confusing glitch.

Problematic bugs have been on the rise once again throughout Modern Warfare’s sixth and final season. Warzone players have had their runs ended by broken Loadout Drops while others have literally been left in the dark as a result of a game-breaking issue. Despite these problems, every now and then, glitches can actually be a pleasant surprise.

This was the case on October 27 as a player shockingly stumbled upon a new weapon. While playing offline, they noticed something suspicious. One of the AI-controlled enemies was wielding a unique pistol.

After taking them down and picking up the gun, the Makarov was revealed in all its glory. Fit with custom animations, an unfinished model, but all the firepower you’d expect from the classic secondary.

The Makarov pistol first appeared in 2010’s Black Ops and soon featured in the game’s sequel before disappearing. It was usable across the campaign and multiplayer in the first game, though only appeared in the story for the follow-up.

Evidently, it’s an extremely rare weapon compared to some iconic guns in the Call of Duty franchise. Having only appeared in Treyarch releases, it’s a surprise to see the pistol up and running in Modern Warfare.

It appeared as a Renetti on the ground and the icon matched up as well. Though it’s very clear a good amount of work has been put into the gun. From unique reload and inspect animations to its own balancing, it may have been in the plans for a previous seasonal update.

Given the unfinished model of the weapon, however, there’s a good chance we don’t see it properly anytime soon. Infinity Ward could have been testing it months ago before scrapping the gun. Perhaps it’s simply in the game’s files as a placeholder. There’s really no telling at this point in time.

The Makarov pistol has only been usable in Black Ops 1 and 2.

It popped up during an offline session against bots, so don’t expect to see this random bug in an online match either. It would be surprising to see the weapon appear in an Infinity Ward title for the first time after such a long gap, though anything is possible.

With Treyarch taking over Warzone with the transition to Black Ops Cold War, however, it would make more sense to see the Makarov in 2021.
