The new Evil Geniuses squad featuring Adam “Assault” Garcia and Justin “SiLLY” Fargo have impressed since forming, but it turns out they have a secret weapon up there sleeves.

Well, not really, but a recent episode of ‘Up to Speed with EG COD’ may include a clue to their recent run of excellent form in Division A of the CWL Pro League.

After a shaky start to the CoD: WWII season, the original EG roster split after failing to qualify for playoffs at Stage One of the CWL Pro League.

Dropping Anthony “NAMELESS” Wheeler and Ian “Enable” Wyatt, they recruited SiLLY from eUnited and Assault from Echo Fox, in an effort to resolve the role issues which had marred the previous lineup.

And the improvements were seemingly immediate, as the new roster strolled through the winners bracket at CWL Seattle to reach the grand final

And they carried that form into Division A of the Pro League, currently sitting at 5-2 series count, and could easily be 6-1 had they closed out their tight match against Echo Fox.

The recent episode of Up to Speed follows the team following the conclusion of their first set of matches, and shows that their improvements are not just down to the help of their coach Bevils and fixing role issues.

After finding a group of kittens trapped in the air conditioning system, the whole EG roster takes the time to help rescue them, earning themselves some much needed ‘good juju’ ahead of Anaheim on June 15th.

“We tried to take care of them as best we could by feeding them and giving them water. We also found them a shelter in Columbus.

So we ended up rescuing all the cats and have a bunch of good karma heading our way. Hopefully we can cash in on that karma come Anaheim and top our performance from Seattle.”

Evil Geniuses are in Group C with UNILAD, Echo Fox and Mindfreak at Anaheim, with matches starting on Friday June 15th.

Activision has clearly gone all out with this haunting takeover, but there’s still more to it than meets the eye. On top of everything outlined in the new roadmap, Warzone also comes boasting a ton of free items in the new event. Just for exploring the map, 16 unique unlocks can be yours.

There’s a special treat waiting for you at the very end as well. From an overview of each reward to where they can all be found, we’ve got you covered with a complete rundown.

How Trick or Treat works in Warzone


From October 20 through November 3, there will be plenty of fresh content for Warzone players to sink their teeth into. Featured throughout the event is a new trick or treat system full of goodies and surprises. 

Boxes are scattered around Verdansk for you to find. Some might contain rare weapon Blueprints, though others could come with a “terrifying fright.” There’s no guarantee that you’ll get a reward from every box you open, but they’re well worth your time.

There’s no need to worry about these boxes ruining your run either. You’ll get a fright, but the ‘trick’ part of this trick or treat gimmick deals “no damage,” Activision confirmed

Upon claiming all 16 rewards on offer, a Legendary Assault Rifle Blueprint will be all yours. The boxes are spread out far and wide so be sure to use our guide below to hunt them all down.

Trick or Treat boxes can be found all across Verdansk

Just like regular Supply Boxes in Warzone, these special crates are randomized. There’s no guarantee that one will be waiting for you at every single location in a single match. It might take some time across a good number of games over the next few weeks of the event.

There are five sections of the map that have a chance to contain Trick or Treat boxes, with two to four points of interest at each. You’ll need to claim rewards at each area over time as some are exclusive to certain points of the map. In other words, you can’t drop into the same location over and over expecting to find unique rewards each time.

Once you’ve claimed the rewards from a specific part of the map, a checkmark will appear in-game. Use this as you advance from one location to another, just to make sure you’re crossing every section off the list.  A full rundown of every possible location can be found below.
