CWL Pro League team UYU complete roster overhaul ahead of CWL Fort Worth

The Call of Duty roster of UYU has made yet another change, releasing both Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno and Tristan ‘Spoof’ Green from the lineup, with CWL Fort Worth around the corner.

Spoof was previously moved to the bench before UYU had even played their first CWL Pro League match of the Black Ops 4 season, replaced by former FaZe Clan player Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni.

On March 6, along with Skyz, Spoof has officially been released from the team which he helped secure Pro League status initially.

MLGFormer FaZe and OpTic player Methodz replaced Spoof on the starting lineup, causing controversy.

Skyz played every match of the UYU’s first stint in the Pro League, and the team has faired well, but not exceeded anyone’s expectations.

They sit just outside of the playoff spots with a 3-4 record, but showed glimpses of potential in wins over Luminosity, Reciprocity and Evil Geniuses.

But, to realize this potential fully, Skyz is not part of the plans, and his departure leaves them with only four players – meaning they must recruit both a new starting player and a new substitute.


UPDATE – March 8

UYU have rounded off their revamped roster by bringing on former Excelerate Gaming player Michael ‘Beehzy’ Said as their substitute for the CWL Pro League.

Beehzy, of course, left ExG on very contentious terms, following up his release with a controversial video in which he publicly accused the org and CEO Justin Tan of blackmailing players and refusing to pay salary.


UPDATE – March 7

UYU have announced that Saul ‘Parzelion’ Masse-Siguenza has joined their starting squad for CWL Fort Worth and “onwards,” confirming the heavy speculation that had been swirling over the past 24 hours.

Parzelion last featured for Midnight Esports and was a part of the roster that both qualified the org for the CWL Pro League and led it to a 5-2 record in Division A, good for second place.

With this roster move, Skyz time with UYU officially comes to an end, as it looks unlikely that the former starter will rejoin the squad as a substitute.


At the time of writing, there is less than 48 hours remaining of the roster window before teams are locked in for CWL Fort Worth.

We will update this post as more information about the future of the UYU Call of Duty team becomes available.

CoD Mobile devs confirm iconic weapon coming in Season 14

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
