The Florida Mutineers have picked up Colt ‘Havok’ McLendon to replace benched veteran Josiah ‘Slacked’ Berry going into Stage 3 of the 2021 Call of Duty League season.
After a poor performance at the Stage 2 Major, which saw them lose in the second round to Seattle Surge, the Mutineers quietly revealed that Slacked, their last-second offseason pickup, would be removed from the starting lineup.
While it was reported that the Mutineers were trialing several options, including the likes of Decemate and Yeez, they ultimately decided to promote Havok from the bench for Stage 3 and potentially beyond.

Florida have been struggling in the opening two Stages of this CDL season, showing glimmers of brilliance but never quite getting the results needed to show what they’re all about.
They’ve failed to secure a Winners Bracket spot for either of the two Majors so far, resulting in early losses that saw them finish 7/8th in the first tournament before an even-worse 9/10th placement in the S2 Major.
Statistically, Slacked wasn’t putting up the same numbers as his teammates, and this could be what led them to make the decision to move him to the bench. His 0.91 K/D was second-worst in the league among eligible players, only beating out Parasite, who was a stand-in for the Royal Ravens.
Florida Mutineers CDL Stage 3 roster:
- Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno
- Joseph ‘Owakening’ Conley
- Travis ‘Neptune’ McCloud
- Colt ‘Havok’ McLendon
