Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson could miss the upcoming Call of Duty League Home Series event in Los Angeles, with Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez rumored to be in line for a spot in the team’s starting roster

Hot off the heels of an impressive run at CDL Atlanta which saw the Mutineers topple the likes of the Chicago Huntsmen on their way to a grand final showdown against Atlanta FaZe, SMG superstar Prestinni could be missing the next Home Series event.

While initially nothing more than speculation, Prestinni has since come forward and clarified the situation by commenting on the rumors himself.

Prestinni could be missing his first event since the inception of the Call of Duty League.

First reported by CDL Intel on Twitter, rumors have been circulating around Prestinni’s attendance at the Los Angeles event on March 7.

Supposedly stepping back from the starting lineup during the next tournament run for the Mutineers, Fero has been eyed as a potential replacement.

With content creator Nick ‘MaNiaC’ Kershner and coach Ricky ‘Atura’ Lugo the only official subs currently signed to the org, bringing in a top Challengers prospect and former 100 Thieves starter in Fero could make the most sense.

Additionally, CDL Intel also shared a lobby picture which appeared to feature Fero filling in for the Mutineers.

Having consistently finished in the Top 4, with six first-place victories in online 1k and 2k Challengers tournaments, Fero has been actively competing since the latest title was released. His team even finished in the Top 12 of 168 rosters at the Launch Weekend Open in Minnesota. 

In a since-deleted Tweet from Prestinni, the veteran responded to a comment that the coronavirus was the reason behind his sudden absence from the LA event.

“More to it than that,” he explained. “I won’t get into it though. Y’all can roast me for not going over a virus all ya want. Ima [sic] keep this one to myself. All ima say.”

While the Mutineers organization has yet to officially clarify the situation just hours out from the LA Home Series, Prestinni did reply to another post and added that he would “be back to [himself] soon enough.”

As the top CDL lineups get ready for the next event, a number of drastic roster changes and roleswaps have come through. Catch up on our power rankings before the action kicks off on March 7.

Call of Duty streamer fires gun out of window after dying on Warzone

A bizarre clip of a Call of Duty streamer has emerged, where the player fired a full magazine of a gun out of his window after dying in Warzone, during his Twitch stream.

In an intense online game, particularly battle royales like Warzone, it’s all too easy to get increasingly frustrated when games don’t go your way.

However, one Twitch streamer, who was playing under the “Faze sWiisH” gamer tag, took his post-game rage a bit too far, by taking a break from his Warzone session to empty out a full clip of his gun on-stream.

Warzone has become quite competitive since its release on March 10.

During the streamer’s broadcast, his character was killed by an enemy in-game and, while he could still wait for his Duo to buy him back him at the nearest Buy Station, he proceeded to walk towards his window in the background of the stream.

After opening the window, the streamer picked up a semi-automatic pistol, firing a full magazine directly outside and placing the gun on the table before returning to his stream.

He continued to finish out the Duos session on Warzone but the clip stirred up a lot of controversy online in the following hours, with many discussing the streamer’s actions on Reddit.

Shortly after the clip was shared, an image of what was outside the streamer’s window emerged, highlighting that behind his house (the direction he fired) appears to be a large open field area, so hopefully, no person or property was at risk of being hit.

Despite the fact that the surrounding area seemed to be clear of people, his actions are still against the livestreaming platform’s community guidelines and can be punished by Twitch’s moderation team.

The clip has since been removed from Twitch but as of now, it is unclear whether this was the result of a ban from the platform or if it was the streamer’s doing.
