Seattle Surge flex player Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt has revealed that he has been moved to the team’s bench following two disappointing weekends in the first events of the new Call of Duty League.

Seattle Surge are one of the eight teams who have competed in both Call of Duty League weekends so far, and while many thought the team could place highly in the league, the squad has endured a difficult start to their season, winning just one of five matches, and losing all but one Search and Destroy maps they’ve played so far.

After four losses, it appears that Seattle Surge have decided to make a change to try and arrest their slump early in the season, moving Enable, who won back-to-back events with 100 Thieves in the 2019 season, to their bench going forward according to the pro player.

Enable confirmed he had been moved to the bench during his February 13 Twitch stream.

Surge found themselves eliminated in the group stages of the Call of Duty League London Home Series, getting swept by Dallas Empire in their first matchup. The squad were able to recover and take a hard-fought victory against L.A. Guerrillas but were soundly beaten 3-1 when they faced the Empire once again in an elimination match.

After returning home from the event, Enable jumped back into pickup matches with other pro players, and when asked by a viewer how his week had been, and how their scrimmages had gone, the 26-year-old explained that he had been removed from the starting roster.

“How were scrims?” he read from his chat. “We have not scrimmed. I actually got dropped. Benched, for the time being. I think they’re starting up tomorrow maybe, I don’t know.”

Seattle Surge will now be using one of their two substitute players moving forward, although it’s currently unknown whether it will be Casey ‘Pandur’ Romano or Nicholas ‘Proto’ Maldonado who will step into Enable’s shoes when the team begins practicing again on February 14.

The next Call of Duty League Home Series takes place in Atlanta on February 22, however, Seattle Surge won’t be in action again until the Los Angeles event on March 7.

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.
