Brian ‘Saint’ Baroska, former coach of eUnited’s professional Call of Duty team, was driven to tears when James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks donated $500 to his stream.

On April 2, just hours after eUnited had officially announced that they had replaced him as their CoD coach, Saint was streaming some Black Ops 4 with a donation goal for his rent and student loans.

Seemingly out of nowhere, Clayster donated $500 to the stream, along with the message: “Love you bro. You’re still the A1 homie forever my guy.”

Despite his best efforts, Saint was unable to fight the tears that were spilling out, as he thanked his former player for his generosity.

“One of the worst days of my life was made so much better by you guys,” he later tweeted. “Thank you so much for the support and a big thank you to Clayster for the $500 donation, as well as everyone else who donated today. Truly don’t have the words that can express how I feel right now.”

Why did Saint get so emotional after the donation?

April 2 was a very difficult day for Saint, who had found out earlier that he had been replaced as the coach of eUnited’s pro CoD team in favor of the recently-retired Brice ‘Faccento’ Faccento.

With financial burdens now pressing upon his shoulders more than ever, Clayster’s massive donation, as well as the support shown by the rest of the viewers, really helped Saint deal with what he called “one of the worst days” of his life. 

Why did Clayster donate $500 to Saint?

It appears that the decision to part ways with Saint was purely for business and professional reasons, and not personal ones, as most of the eUnited players still hold their former coach in high regard, especially Clayster.

Apart from the $500 donation, Clayster also tweeted out all of eUnited’s accomplishments since Saint had joined them, as a way to promote him to any other teams in the CWL Pro League that were looking for a coach.

What’s next for Saint moving forward?

Obviously, Saint’s ideal scenario moving forward would probably be to join another CWL Pro League team as their coach as soon as possible. If not, he has made it clear that he’s open to any available positions in esports, even on the business and administration side of things.

Considering his strong resume as a coach, and the fact the he has both extensive experience in esports as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, it would seem as though Saint could find another job in the industry sooner rather than later.

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
