The infamous Call of Duty insider known as the ‘CoDBurner‘ continues to predict doom for OpTic Gaming‘s pro team, amid reports that the organization may soon be purchased by Immortals. 

On May 27, the CoDBurner posted his most recent set of leaked information about OpTic, in which he claimedthat the players will be sold “one by one.”

“I think what I said about OpTic playing under a different name at [CWL] Anaheim is true,” he wrote. “They’re going to sell the players one by one after it, so RosterMania is going to be lit.”

What the CoDBurner is suggesting is that Immortals will indeed be the one’s purchasing the Infinite Esports and Entertainment, and OpTic with it, and will opt to sell the CoD team to a different organization, since teams can’t be dismantled when the roster transfer window is closed.

However, once the third and final roster change period opens, all of the players will be individually sold to different teams for the remainder of the season, which would undoubtedly make for the most hectic RosterMania of all time.

MLGCoDBurner believes that all of the OpTic players will be sold “one by one” to other organizations.

If this does turn out to be the case, then that means current OpTic CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez would have failed to acquire and preserve the OpTic brand, which many fans have been hoping he will be able to do.

H3CZ himself has admitted that he is trying his best to save OpTic, which would otherwise be completely dissolved if Immortals do end up acquiring Infinite.

Of course, what the CoDBurner posted could turn out to be completely false, but there is some credibility to his info, considering that he leaked last year that Infinite had tried to drop the CoD team.

At the time, his leaks were strongly opposed and doubted by the community, but now, a year later, the information was ultimately confirmed to be true by H3CZ and longtime OpTic member Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards. 

“I told you all before, Infinite was trying to drop CoD last year but no one believed it,” he wrote. “Thank you Davis for confirming it. I stopped posting about OpTic because people would always get mad, so I’m kind of sad and happy it’s coming out.”

What about the rest of OpTic?

As for the remaining members of OpTic, the CoDBurner claims that all of the content creators will be dropped because they’re too expensive to keep aboard, unless they are willing to eat some of their own salary.

CoDBurner also made sure to not level any of the blame of this predicament on H3CZ, whom he claims “loves all the players and content creators but can’t do a thing with no money.”

From Blueprints to weapon charms and plenty more, Warzone’s new Haunting of Verdansk event has dropped 16 unique items across the map. Here’s everything you need to know to claim them all.

Verdansk has been well and truly taken over in the new Halloween-themed event. Horror film icons are available to unlock in new bundles, a spooky nighttime version of the battle royale has been deployed, and there’s even a new Zombie Royale Limited-Time Mode (LTM)

Activision has clearly gone all out with this haunting takeover, but there’s still more to it than meets the eye. On top of everything outlined in the new roadmap, Warzone also comes boasting a ton of free items in the new event. Just for exploring the map, 16 unique unlocks can be yours.

There’s a special treat waiting for you at the very end as well. From an overview of each reward to where they can all be found, we’ve got you covered with a complete rundown.

How Trick or Treat works in Warzone


From October 20 through November 3, there will be plenty of fresh content for Warzone players to sink their teeth into. Featured throughout the event is a new trick or treat system full of goodies and surprises. 

Boxes are scattered around Verdansk for you to find. Some might contain rare weapon Blueprints, though others could come with a “terrifying fright.” There’s no guarantee that you’ll get a reward from every box you open, but they’re well worth your time.

There’s no need to worry about these boxes ruining your run either. You’ll get a fright, but the ‘trick’ part of this trick or treat gimmick deals “no damage,” Activision confirmed

Upon claiming all 16 rewards on offer, a Legendary Assault Rifle Blueprint will be all yours. The boxes are spread out far and wide so be sure to use our guide below to hunt them all down.

Trick or Treat boxes can be found all across Verdansk

Just like regular Supply Boxes in Warzone, these special crates are randomized. There’s no guarantee that one will be waiting for you at every single location in a single match. It might take some time across a good number of games over the next few weeks of the event.

There are five sections of the map that have a chance to contain Trick or Treat boxes, with two to four points of interest at each. You’ll need to claim rewards at each area over time as some are exclusive to certain points of the map. In other words, you can’t drop into the same location over and over expecting to find unique rewards each time.
