Former Team Kaliber member and streamer FooYa has given fans some early RosterMania intel, by claiming that Kenny is set to leave the organization.

FooYa, who announced she was parting ways with Team Kaliber on August 20, was live on Twitch when she casually remarked on Kenny’s future with her former team.

The subject of Kenny was first brought up by a commenter in FooYa’s stream, who claimed he had heard that the reason she had left Team Kaliber because she had fallen in love with Kenny, an idea that brought a hearty chuckle from the streamer.

In response, FooYa immediately stated “You know Kenny is leaving tK, right?”, adding some credibility to the rumours that Kenny would be leaving the organization during this off season.

The rumors regarding Kenny Williams’ future on Team Kaliber are nothing new. Back in July, Kenny took to Twitter to criticise tK’s owner Justin ‘KOSDFF’ Chandler for what he felt was a disrespectful prank, where Chandler and Clayton ‘Nuddah’ Huddleston posted a video clip wearing Kenny’s clothes.

While live on Twitch, Williams went on to add that he couldn’t wait to leave the “trash ass org” and claimed that he wasn’t being paid the minimum CWL Pro League salary.

If Kenny does leave Team Kaliber, it seems that it won’t take long before the offers start rolling in.

After a Call of Duty: World War II season where he cemented himself as one of the top submachine gun players in the world, Williams found himself as the subject of a congratulatory tweet from Immortals CEO Noah Whinston, while 100 Thieves owner Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has made no secret that his organization intends to pick up a CoD team before the Black Ops 4 season begins.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season officially gets underway at CWL Las Vegas from December 7 to December 9. What organization Kenny will play for at the tournament, still remains to be seen.

Modern Warfare & Warzone update nerfs AS VAL & SP-R: Patch notes

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone’s October 8 update has quickly nerfed the overpowered rounds on Season 6’s new AS VAL and SP-R 208 weapons, while fixing a bizarre Warzone bug. Check out the full patch notes below.

In one of CoD’s quicker patches, Infinity Ward have officially fixed the SP-R 208 and AS VAL shenanigans players have experienced since Season 6 deployed on September 28. In this patch, which IW had alluded to in recent days, the developers fixed the AS VAL’s absurd bullet penetration with its SSP 10-R mags and completely overhauled the SP-R’s hitscan dominance.

The SKS marksman rifle also received a light tweak, but, more importantly for Warzone enthusiasts, the bugged interaction between the subway’s fast travel system and Verdansk’s gas has been fixed.

AS VAL and SP-R nerfs

The AS VAL’s SSP 10-R mags let it shoot through walls upon walls and the SP-R’s .300 Norma mag and .338 Lapua mags let it essentially shoot as a hitscan sniper up to 450 meters. As such, Season 6’s AR was a nightmare in multiplayer and the marksman rifle was some sort of hybrid HDR-meets-Kar98k monstrosity.

Both of those issues have been abruptly adjusted, following recent confirmations from Infinity Ward that they would be tackling the overpowered weapons sooner than later.

While the AS VAL’s change was a simple one, just removing the ability to shoot through multiple walls, the SP-R has also gone through a number of changes aimed at balancing it more appropriately for Verdansk gameplay.

Warzone Subway bug fix

When Season 6 dropped, it came with a new, subterranean fast-travel system in the form of a subway that moves around the entire map. Unfortunately, players quickly realized that the underground transport could also bring you to an undeserved victory as the system could be abused to ignore the gas while your opponents on the surface coughed to death.

That issue has now been resolved in the October 8 update, with players within the subway no longer untouched by the battle royale’s toxic gas. This is tremendous news for those who want to play the game without worrying about ‘sewer rats’ exploiting a major bug. In combination with the nerfs to the AS VAL and SP-R, this patch should be a community favorite.
