In a stunning roster move that has caught many off guard, FaZe Clan Call of Duty pro player Dillon ‘Attach’ Price has temporarily found a new home for the rest of the Black Ops 4 season.

On March 8, Evil Geniuses announced that they had successfully loaned Attach from FaZe Clan, and he will be joining their CoD team just in time for next week’s CWL Fort Worth major tournament.

He will be joining a roster that includes Jevon ‘Goonjar’ Gooljar-Lim, Mathew ‘Royalty’ Faithfull, Tyler ‘FeLo’ Johnson, and John ‘Xotic’ Bruno.

Attach will, of course, be filling the roster spot vacated by Brice ‘Faccento’ Faccento, who had announced his retirement from competitive Call of Duty several days prior.

It must be noted that this roster move is a loan and not a permanent transfer, meaning Attach will be returning to FaZe at some point either this season or after. 

This move allows Attach to  compete CWL Pro League for the first time this season after FaZe Clan shockingly failed to qualify back in January.

At the time, unlike some of his teammates, Attach was unable to secure a suitable move for himself and was thus forced to sit out the first four weeks of the Pro League before the roster lock was lifted again on March 1. 

Fortunately, for Attach, he was able to grab a spot on a Pro League team before rosters were locked again on March 8, and fans will likely be excited to see the world champion back in the main fold. 

“I’m very excited to be teaming up with these hungry and talented players,” he said. “I’m thankful for the opportunity and ready to get to work to turn this season around.”

EG will hope that Attach’s presence will indeed help the team turn things around in the Pro League, where they currently sit dead last in Division A with a lowly 1-6 record.

“It’s not every day a world champion is a free agent and with a player like Attach it’s easy to say that he would make any team better by joining,” said CoD coach Revan. 

“Attach is a hard working and dedicated player, he pushes others around him and is open to improving his own play. A leader by example, we’re all very excited to grow as a team with Attach as our new fifth.”

Evil Geniuses’ coach Revan is understandably very excited to have Attach join their CoD team.

But before any improvement can be made in the Pro League, EG first have to face the stern challenge that lays ahead them at CWL Fort Worth, where they’ve been grouped with 100 Thieves, Red Reserve, and Enigma6 Group in Pool B.

Call of Duty Mobile is gearing up for the start of Season 1: New Order, which will launch in the last week of January. So, here’s what we know so far in terms of patch notes. 

Even though CoD Mobile has plenty of content in it already, the devs have been rolling out regular updates since launch to keep things fresh. 

These updates are, largely, big new season patches that bring a new theme to the game as well as new characters, new maps, and of course, new equipment like weapons and perks. 

With the first update of 2021, the devs are resetting the counter, so it won’t be Season 14 or Season 15 moving forward. Instead, we’re getting Season 1: New Order, and there are a few flashbacks coming. So, here’s what you need to know.

CoD Mobile takes some of the best parts of previous games and puts them under one umbrella.

CoD Mobile New Order Season 1 release date & time

CoD Mobile’s next major update is right around the corner. Season 1 goes live on Tuesday, January 26 at 4PM PT / 7PM ET.

While the community was left to speculate for a number of days, the devs soon confirmed this exact date and time in a January 4 tweet.

We now know exactly when we’ll be able to drop back in with all of the fresh content. Expect the launch hour to be flooded with returning players, so logging in could take a bit longer than usual.

New weapons – FAMAS & SKS

As for new weapons, again, they’re still being cryptic, but it doesn’t take a mastermind to figure out what is being teased.

Two weapons are coming – one resembling, and sounding a lot like the FAMAS from previous CoD titles. There is also another that looks like the SKS that has featured in Modern Warfare and Black Ops releases.

Given the devs love to have their own spin on things, the FAMAS has been renamed to the FR.556 in CoD Mobile. It looks to still pack one hell of a punch based on the early glimpse we’ve seen. It also boasts a fast rate of fire with minimal recoil.

Meanwhile, the SKS is arriving with its original name intact.

The powerful Marksman rifle is capable of taking down foes in a few quick taps of the trigger. It could shake up the meta with Season 1 so definitely be on the lookout for this new addition.

New map for CoD Mobile 2021 Season 1 – Reclaim

In terms of a new map, again, that’s been teased by the devs. However, if you’re new to CoD Mobile, you might not instantly know what is being teased.

The teaser does bear a resemblance to Picadilly from Modern Warfare, and some fans suggested that it might be something new altogether. However, the answer is a little simpler than that.

The new map for Season 1: New Order will actually be Reclaim, the map from the Season 13 test server. How do we know? Well, there’s a big Christmas tree in the middle of the teaser that lines up what we’ve seen from Reclaim. 

New Battle Royale mode for CoD Mobile – Blitz

There’s a frenetic BR mode dropping into CoD Mobile with Season 1. Blitz introduces a faster take on the standard format with “smaller zones, less time, and more action.”

With smaller circles, players will be forced into fights much sooner than in the regular BR playlist. Not only that, but zones move considerably faster than in the standard mode as well.

The mode aims to keep you on your toes while providing a bite-sized BR alternative. If you don’t have time for a full game, Blitz is a quicker option to get the same thrills at a much faster rate.

New CoD Mobile Battle Royale Class – Desperado

Season 1 brings a new class to shake things up on the battle royale side. Desperado aims to blur the lines as an “offensive defender.” Not only does the new class come with a deployable turret, but it also gives you the Last Stand ability.

The Shield Turret can be placed anywhere on the map and comes with “limitless ammo” for its duration. Players are somewhat defended while operating the turret, thanks to its well-placed shields. Of course, you’re still completely exposed from behind to keep things balanced.

Meanwhile, Last Stand allows you to get back on your feet in a dire situation. If you go down, you’ll pull out a pistol and have a chance at revenge. Securing a kill with this pistol will bring you back to life.

Who is the new character in CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order?

For those fans who like to get a new character at the start of the new season, that tradition should continue here, even with the change to Season 1.

Who will it be, though? Well, the devs have teased it being Raul Menendez – who should be a familiar face to Black Ops fans. Though, it hasn’t been confirmed just yet. So, we’ll have to wait and see.

As for bug fixes, weapon nerfs, and buffs, they haven’t been revealed by the devs just yet and should filter out just prior to the start of the new season.

Once they’re here, and we’ve got more confirmed information about Season 1: New Order, we’ll update this post so you won’t miss anything.
