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.

Mutineers’ win has now propelled them into contention for the title, as they sit tied with Empire and RØKKR just 10 points adrift of leaders, Huntsmen.

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.

Huntsmen’s kryptonite

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.

After the Black Ops Cold War Beta was available on PC, data-miners and hackers scoured through the game’s code to find hidden features, and some of them have seemingly stumbled upon a usable/playable version of a classic Call of Duty sniper rifle – the Barret .50 cal.

Unfortunately, with a little bit less than 24 hours to go, the Black Ops Cold War Beta is almost over. While most people spent the weekend knee-deep in the game’s base weapons, maps, modes, etc., many PC data-miners were enjoying everything the pre-release version had to offer that was hidden in the game’s coding.

Throughout the weekend, many players were leaking parts of the game’s code that referred to a number of unreleased features. While most of them were obviously left-over assets from Black Ops 4 or, at the very least, unsubstantiated pieces of data, there seems to be a classic sniper coming to the game.

A Black Ops Cold War Beta mod video from YouTuber Andrew2007 seems to show the Barrett .50 cal, a fan-favorite sniper rifle from several previous Call of Duty title, as a part of the game, although it appears that the gun is named ‘Barret M82’ for BOCW.

As can be seen in the video below, the weapon isn’t done, as there are no firing and reloading sound associated with the weapon. There isn’t even a scope texture, with a white square taking its place. This makes sense, as unreleased weapons generally don’t have all the assets associated with them attached until much closer to release.

For those confused as to why the rifle is firing at such a high rate, this is due to the mods that the user installed for the game. The actual Barret will certainly not function that way if and when it gets fully released.

Speaking of which, it’s also entirely possible that the video is fake and that the YouTuber simply modded the weapon into the game. Still, it looks pretty convincing, and given the fact that other prominent leak pages like leaker ModerWarzone have corroborated, its existence seems more likely than not.

The inclusion of the Barrett 50 cal is certainly a welcome one. The gun was featured in CoD 4: Modern Warfare, MW2, MW3, and even Black Ops 2’s story campaign. A variant of it was also featured in Modern Warfare (2019) but it was titled the Rytec AMR and featured some differences from the original.

Activision
The Barrett 50 cal sniper has been featured in multiple Call of Duty games including every entry of the Modern Warfare series.

What’s most likely to happen with this gun, judging from the fact that it wasn’t even included in the beta or alpha, is that it’s being saved for the post-launch content that Activision and Treyarch are planning on releasing.

Either way, it won’t be long until we find out since Black Ops Cold War is set to release on November 13, 2020.
