Members of the former Complexity Call of Duty dynasty suffered a reverse sweep defeat in the grand finals of Team Summertime’s Movemeber Invitational Black Ops 2 throwback event. 

As is tradition with the conclusion of a Call of Duty season, players flock to older games that they enjoy in a bid to create content, win some money, and relax during the off-season. 

The return to these titles has prompted throwback tournaments, with former OpTic Gaming member Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards usually in the middle of proceedings. The content creator took things up a notch this time around though, linking up with Movember and the EsportsStadium in Arlington, Texas to run a charity event on a massive different scale. 

ActivisionCall of Duty: Black Ops 2 was the throwback of choice this time around.

Running through September 28-29, eight teams competed for a portion of the $10,000 prize pool, as well as putting on a show to help raise some funds for Movember

When things got down to business on “Championship Sunday,” only two teams remained, with 6 out of 7 – a team made up of Crimsix, Karma, ACHES, and Clayster – and a name referencing their CoD Champs dominance over the years, facing off against the RodSquad of TCM, Twizz, Nelson, and Tsunami.

After falling to the eGirl Slayers in round one, the former Complexity members had to battle through a losers bracket run just to get into the Grand Finals. On the other side of things, the RodSquad cruised through the winner’s bracket to gain a series advantage in the final match-up, with 6 out of 7 needing a bracket reset.

The former Complexity stars managed to do so, though, taking the first series in a convincing 3-0, before jumping into a 2-0 lead in the second set of matches.

Even though they appeared to have one hand on the trophy, they let it slip through their fingers as RodSquad completed the reverse sweep with a 6-3 win on Raid Search and Destroy – bagging themselves the tournament victory and the biggest chunk of the $10,000 prize pool.

Aside from that, though, the generosity of the CoD Community was on show, as Hitch revealed that they had raised over $25,000 by the end of the day to benefit the Movember cause.

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.
