The Call of Duty World League has announced the full schedule for the first week of action of its upcoming Pro League.

The CWL Pro League is set to kick off on Monday, February 4, with all eight Division A teams set to take part in the first week of competition. 


The opening day of matches features a spicy affair between Red Reserve and Team Reciprocity that a lot of European Call of Duty fans will definitely have their eyes on. 

Midnight Esports, the team that took the scene by storm by going 6-0 in the Pro League Qualifiers, will make their league debut against the vaunted OpTic Gaming side.


Aside from their match against Midnight, the Green Wall is also set to face UYU, Evil Geniuses, and Team Rec in their first week matches. 

OpTic GamingCWL Vegas champs OpTic Gaming will be favorites to win the Pro League after what has been a dominant start to the season.

Speaking of UYU, it will be worth keeping an eye on all three of their matches after all of the backlash they’ve recently received for controversially promoting Methodz to the starting squad and demoting Spoof to the substitute’s role.

Another noteworthy match will be the newly signed Gen.G squad facing off against Red Reserve on February 5, in what will be their first official competitive match with their new organization.


Prior to the opening day matches being played, the CWL will air its first Hot Mic show of the Pro League, hosted by caster and analyst Clint ‘Maven’ Evans.

The show will feature up to four players from Pro League teams, which have yet to be announced, and the group will discuss a variety of topics involving the competitive scene.

Iconic Barret 50 cal sniper rifle leaked in Black Ops Cold War

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.

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.
