Florida Mutineers’s Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez proved to be an unstoppable force during CDL Dallas, leading his team to their first ever Call of Duty League event win in only his second event with the squad.
After coming close to raining on FaZe’s parade at CDL Atlanta, Mutineers finally bagged their first event win of the season, despite falling short at the hands of Toronto Ultra in their opening match.
With their tournament lives on the line, it was Preston ‘Prestinni’ Sanderson’s replacement, Fero who would step up to the plate and lead his team to their first event win — posting some unreal stats along the way. Let’s take a look at how Fero made the biggest impact on the server for his team.
Florida’s Fero on fire
Henriquez clocked in an astounding 477 kills — the most set by any individual player in a CDL event to-date, beating Cuyler 'Huke' Garland's previous 407-kill record from CDL London. Granted that all five of Mutineers’ matches were four or five-game thrillers, meaning that there was an additional respawn game mode in each series to post more kills.
However, that doesn’t take away from Fero’s incredible performance. 305 of his mammoth kill tally came from Hardpoint alone (the highest of the event by far), where he also clocked in with an average hill time of 56 seconds per game.

Domination saw the 21-year-old post an average of 27 kills per game (135 over five games), which was, again, the highest by a substantial margin.
Combine this with the fact that the Mutineers Flex had the second-highest positive kill swing with +91 kills-vs-deaths – beaten only by fellow teammate Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno with +101 – and it's no wonder why Mutineers were a force to be reckoned with.
More than just respawn
Respawn game modes weren’t just Fero’s forte, as the youngster proved pivotal to Mutineers' Search & Destroy success, as he won 62% of his opening duels which can be attributed to some of their round wins.
So with an all-round performance that will likely go down in the books as one of the best we’re likely to see all season long, Fero has most definitely earned his spot in the Mutineers’ starting ranks.
Mutineers proved to be the proverbial thorn in Chicago Huntsmen’s side yet again, as they crushed the league leaders 3-1 — making them the only team to take down Scump and co. this season, and doing it twice.
And who was leading that narrative? You guessed it, Fero racked up the kills yet again, as he was the only player on the server to break the 100-kill mark, while also putting in the objective work during respawn game modes.
Of course, Fero wasn’t the only player to show up big for the Mutineers. Four members of the Florida squad each chalked up over 400 kills during the event. Plus who can forget Bradley ‘Frosty’ Bergstrom’s insane 1v4 S&D clutch against Los Angeles Guerrillas?
Plenty of teams will be thankful that Florida won’t be back in action until May 8-10, where they will host their first home series event.
