FaZe Clan‘s Doug ‘Censor’ Martin announced today that he is going to expose the identity of the infamous CoDBurner soon. 

CoDBurner has long been seen as a nuisance in the competitive CoD scene, as he has leaked roster moves and pro team lineups, amongst a long list of other confidential information on Reddit.

Pro players such as Censor have vigorously been trying to uncover the identity of this leaker, and the unveiling might finally be upon us.

Censor claims he’s exposing the leaker soon

On Wednesday July 17, Censor took to Twitter to say that he was ready to finally put the whole thing to rest, and expose who the leaker is. When initially talking to Censor, the leaker had told various people that he made his money working for Goldman Sachs. Problem is, Censor’s uncle was the former Vice President for the banking group.

The FaZe pro then updated everyone on social media, saying that he now has CoDBurner’s full legal name, and is going to drop a video on Friday to finally expose him.

“A massive fuck you”

Censor then followed his earlier tweet with a video, saying: “This guy is an idiot. For someone who is really trying to cover his tracks, he’s really dumb. He exposed himself. I have enough evidence to expose him now, but I am waiting for one final piece to come back. It’s a really important piece, as a massive fuck you from myself.”

He said that he might even expose the name today, if he gets the information and has the time. The pro player then left his audience with one last bit of advice.

“Never ever associate with people who have money and you don’t know where they are getting the money from. Or what their name is”.

Who is CoDBurner?

The leaker first showed up in April of 2018, exposing roster changes and moves being made by pro teams leading up to the mid season. 

But the competitive scene was rocked when in August of that year, he took to Reddit to leak confidential information on OG. His post detailed a great amount of inside information of what was going on behind the scenes. 

This led many pro players and fans to dig deep to figure out who this leaker could be.

Whether we get the name today or Friday, the long saga looks to finally be coming to an end. Hopefully then, competitive players can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

“Broken” reticles you should avoid using in Black Ops Cold War

Since the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, players have been grinding to unlock their favorite weapons, skins, and customization options. Unlocking the best reticles for each gun is important, and a video by YouTuber ‘JGOD’ has exposed some huge issues with the game’s current reticle choices.

Since the game’s release on November 13, Black Ops Cold War players have been furiously grinding to unlock additional weapons and customization options in both Multiplayer and Zombies.

Some of the most important items for players to unlock are the various gun reticles across the two main game modes. Players want to make sure they are using the best reticle to help them stay on-target during the action.

In a video posted to his YouTube channel, content creator ‘JGOD’ has criticized the current offering of reticles in Cold War, along with confirming which are the best options with what’s available.

Reticles are just one of the many customization options available to players in Cold War.

Broken reticles in Cold War

In the video, JGOD takes a deep dive into the issues with the reticles available in Multiplayer and Zombies. He breaks down exactly what is wrong with each of the reticles for the 1.25x and 1.37x scopes, which are some of the most popular options in Cold War.

JGOD starts off on Cartel with some basic red dot/triangle options for each scope, showing how they can be seen easily when looking at textures like walls. However, as soon as he moves his reticle up into the air, the red crosshairs completely disappear.

“Where did that red reticle go?” he asks while looking around. The YouTuber continues by showing how some reticles – even yellow and green options – are invisible when looking at other textures around the map. He seems shocked, saying: “I’ve never, ever, ever, ever had this issue in any other Call of Duty.”

The video continues with a breakdown of each reticle’s in-game appearance compared to their image in Cold War’s loadout menu. JGOD shows that almost every red, yellow, or green reticle is affected by different visual issues, and players should avoid those options until the problems are addressed.

Best reticle options for Black Ops Cold War

With all the issues JGOD pointed out in his video, players might be wondering what reticles are still worth using. Luckily, there are still a few good options available.

Similar to Modern Warfare, the blue reticle options appear to be the best choice for Cold War players at the moment. JGOD confirms that, saying: “When it comes to the reticles . . . you wanna pretty much go with the blue ones.” He winds down his video by saying he is “just bringing awareness to this type of issue, so that if the devs were unaware of how broken this is, they can get on it.”

While Treyarch has confirmed they are working on other reticles issues – like certain reticles appearing upside down – they have not addressed the concerns surrounding reticle visibility at the time of writing.
