Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop is proving to be a multi-esport star with his performances in Fortnite as well as the Black Ops 4 Beta.

He went on an impressive kill spree with the ‘Tempest’ Specialist Weapon in BO4.

CouRage taunted his Black Ops 4 opponents by yelling about how he is a Fortnite pro.

A total of eight players would be shocked by CouRage’s Tempest.

Since there are only five players per team in Black Ops 4, at least three of the Tempest victims will be cursing the spawn system of the beta.

CouRage made headlines in Fortnite after receiving a $70,000 donation from YouTubers Mr. Beast and Miniminter.

Mr. Beast and Miniminter messaged CouRage privately and offered him the money, provided he won his next solos match.

CouRage also participated in the Fortnite Summer Skirmish tournament and placed in fourth place, finishing ahead of FaZe pros Tfue and Cloak.

Although he did not win any money for his Tempest rampage, it was still an impressive display of skill from the former Call of Duty caster.

The Tempest was also in Black Ops 3 but functioned differently. Unlike BO4, it was a one hit kill and had to be charged to fire.

Fans of CouRage can find him playing Black Ops 4 again, this time with professional footballer Dele Alli.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
