FaZe Clan co-owner Apex hilariously destroys trash talker on Call of Duty: MW2

After running into a trash talker during his epic return to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, FaZe Clan’s Apex decided to hand out a brutal beating on one of the game’s most popular maps. 

FaZe Clan’s co-founder had to delete Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on his console to free up space for the notoriously sniper heavy game, but once he got going, it was all about Free-For-All on Highrise.

The streamer, who has over 4.7 million subscribers on YouTube, finished fifth in the game with 1200 points before he was flooded with Xbox messages. The first he showed us was from ‘king hevn,’ which said: “Good to see you back on MW2”, however one player seemed to want a challenge rather than a conversation.

Infinity WardRust, the popular Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map typically used for 1v1 sniper matches.

A message from Las Mortas said: “1v1 MW2 Rust and if you don’t accept, then you will have five years of bad luck”, which is not the standard way to ask for a one-on-one sniper match on the famous Call of Duty map.

“Oh wow, I’ve got to 1v1 this kid on Rust. No way. I did not think that this was going to happen. I did not think this is what my day was going to be,” he said before setting up the lobby. “Here we go bro, let’s go.”

Yet – even after all of that – Las Mortas never decided to join the game. Instead, PackinHeatPooba, who called Apex a “bearded short”, joined the lobby and the challenge was finally on.

Apex raced into a 9-0 lead against his opponent, while Las Mortas continued to send him messages, but the gamer was too busy destroying his opponent to reply.

The “despicable” game ended 20-2 to the YouTuber, with one of PackinHeatPooba’s kills coming from a throwing knife and the other from when Apex was trying to no-scope the player for a while. After realizing the gulf in class between the two, the player swiftly left the lobby at the end of the game.

All talk, no action.

CoD Mobile Season 1 New Order early patch notes: Weapons, new map, release date, more

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 14 release date & time

In terms of when the update will be going live, the devs haven’t yet confirmed a date or time, at the time of writing. They’re still dropping clues.

In their January 21 community update, though, they said that the new season will be starting in the last week of the month, with Tuesday, January 26 being used as a date for things potentially kicking off.

Now, that’s not confirmed as we’ve already mentioned, but that day would make sense. It’s also the conclusion of the previous season’s farewell event, so things could easily roll out. We’ll just have to wait and see.

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.

As familiar as they are to longtime CoD fans, these weapons may have their names changed in CoD Mobile. The devs like to have their spin on things, after all.

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. 

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 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.
