The first match of Day Three featured an all European affair as winless Epsilon eSports faced Splyce. Epsilon appeared to be on their way to their first win when they took a 2-0 lead but a reverse sweep from Splyce ended those hopes and dreams.

The next match saw Evil Geniuses dominate Team Kaliber in a swift, 3-0 sweep, giving them their fifth straight victory after starting 0-2. TK finished the first half of Stage 2 at 4-3, having gotten swept in two straight series.

Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price and his Evil Geniuses beat Team Kaliber to win their fifth match in a row in Division A of the CWL Pro League Stage 2.

Echo Fox and Team EnVy also matched up in Day Three, in a battle between two 3-3 teams. It was EnVy who took care of business with a 3-1 victory, improving their record to 4-3 as Echo Fox dropped their third straight to fall to 3-4.

The Match of the Day saw two of the hottest teams do battle as Division A leading Red Reserve faced a FaZe Clan team which had won three in a row coming in. 

Despite losing the first game, Red proved they could not be easily stopped as they won the next three to win the match 3-1 and improve to an impressive 6-1.

After the Black Ops Cold War Beta was available on PC, data-miners and hackers scoured through the game’s code to find hidden features, and some of them have seemingly stumbled upon a usable/playable version of a classic Call of Duty sniper rifle – the Barret .50 cal.

Unfortunately, with a little bit less than 24 hours to go, the Black Ops Cold War Beta is almost over. While most people spent the weekend knee-deep in the game’s base weapons, maps, modes, etc., many PC data-miners were enjoying everything the pre-release version had to offer that was hidden in the game’s coding.

Throughout the weekend, many players were leaking parts of the game’s code that referred to a number of unreleased features. While most of them were obviously left-over assets from Black Ops 4 or, at the very least, unsubstantiated pieces of data, there seems to be a classic sniper coming to the game.

A Black Ops Cold War Beta mod video from YouTuber Andrew2007 seems to show the Barrett .50 cal, a fan-favorite sniper rifle from several previous Call of Duty title, as a part of the game, although it appears that the gun is named ‘Barret M82’ for BOCW.

As can be seen in the video below, the weapon isn’t done, as there are no firing and reloading sound associated with the weapon. There isn’t even a scope texture, with a white square taking its place. This makes sense, as unreleased weapons generally don’t have all the assets associated with them attached until much closer to release.

For those confused as to why the rifle is firing at such a high rate, this is due to the mods that the user installed for the game. The actual Barret will certainly not function that way if and when it gets fully released.

Speaking of which, it’s also entirely possible that the video is fake and that the YouTuber simply modded the weapon into the game. Still, it looks pretty convincing, and given the fact that other prominent leak pages like leaker ModerWarzone have corroborated, its existence seems more likely than not.

The inclusion of the Barrett 50 cal is certainly a welcome one. The gun was featured in CoD 4: Modern Warfare, MW2, MW3, and even Black Ops 2’s story campaign. A variant of it was also featured in Modern Warfare (2019) but it was titled the Rytec AMR and featured some differences from the original.

Activision
The Barrett 50 cal sniper has been featured in multiple Call of Duty games including every entry of the Modern Warfare series.

What’s most likely to happen with this gun, judging from the fact that it wasn’t even included in the beta or alpha, is that it’s being saved for the post-launch content that Activision and Treyarch are planning on releasing.

Either way, it won’t be long until we find out since Black Ops Cold War is set to release on November 13, 2020.
