ELEAGUE announcement for CoD Vets event confirms Gunless transfer

Calum Patterson

A number of top professional CoD players will be at the ELEAGUE arena in Atlanta on Saturday, October 13 for a charity event on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and Gunless is on the list – but not for Rise Nation.

ELEAGUE revealed the participating players on October 10, which includes top pros from FaZe Clan, Envy, Splyce and Luminosity.

Taking place just a day after the Black Ops 4 worldwide release, it is the first time fans will see their favorite pros in competitive action on the new title.

Interestingly though, the announcement also leaks some as yet unannounced CoD roster news, as it lists Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman as a Luminosity player.

Gunless has been heavily linked with a move to Luminosity since the end of the WWII season and the inevitable disbanding of the Rise Nation Roster.
