As Rostermania begins to heat up ahead ofCall of Duty roster.

Gen.G have been one of the biggest surprises of the CWL Pro League thus far, managing to put together an impressive 6-1 record to top Division A.

Despite the success seen from the team over their first two weeks of the Pro League, it looks as though Gen.G has decided to shake things up in a big way by moving on from the star player.

While SpaceLy is surely the cornerstone of the Gen.G roster, having led them through negotiations during the entire Black Ops 4 season, even he wasn’t safe from another Rostermania surprise. 

“Exploring my options since the team decided it was in their best interest to replace me,” tweeted SpaceLy on March 6.

While many saw these initial comments as SpaceLy taking some jabs at the organization, he later clarified that this situation isn’t their fault in any way. 

“GenG is a phenomal organization and I truly wish them nothing but the best like they deserve,” SpaceLy explained. “This [roster move] happening isn’t their fault and any negative comments should not be directed towards them. It just is what it is at this point.”

Even though SpaceLy initially made no mention of who Gen.G decided to bring in as his replacement, word quickly got out that Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon was up next for the Gen.G squad.

Envoy is currently with Midnight Esports, has been dealing with some roster drama of his own, tweeting a cryptic message on March 2 promising to speak his mind once he is able to.

Any moves involving either team will come as quite the surprise since Midnight is sitting right behind Gen.G at the top of Division A with a 5-2 record. 

As with all roster moves during the frantic Rostermania period, nothing is set in stone until there’s been official confirmation from the teams involved.

Modern Warfare glitch reveals unreleased Makarov pistol

Infinity Ward adds weapons to Modern Warfare with each new season, though it appears even more have been in the works behind the scenes as a secret pistol was accidentally handed out due to a confusing glitch.

Problematic bugs have been on the rise once again throughout Modern Warfare’s sixth and final season. Warzone players have had their runs ended by broken Loadout Drops while others have literally been left in the dark as a result of a game-breaking issue. Despite these problems, every now and then, glitches can actually be a pleasant surprise.

This was the case on October 27 as a player shockingly stumbled upon a new weapon. While playing offline, they noticed something suspicious. One of the AI-controlled enemies was wielding a unique pistol.

After taking them down and picking up the gun, the Makarov was revealed in all its glory. Fit with custom animations, an unfinished model, but all the firepower you’d expect from the classic secondary.

The Makarov pistol first appeared in 2010’s Black Ops and soon featured in the game’s sequel before disappearing. It was usable across the campaign and multiplayer in the first game, though only appeared in the story for the follow-up.

Evidently, it’s an extremely rare weapon compared to some iconic guns in the Call of Duty franchise. Having only appeared in Treyarch releases, it’s a surprise to see the pistol up and running in Modern Warfare.

It appeared as a Renetti on the ground and the icon matched up as well. Though it’s very clear a good amount of work has been put into the gun. From unique reload and inspect animations to its own balancing, it may have been in the plans for a previous seasonal update.

Given the unfinished model of the weapon, however, there’s a good chance we don’t see it properly anytime soon. Infinity Ward could have been testing it months ago before scrapping the gun. Perhaps it’s simply in the game’s files as a placeholder. There’s really no telling at this point in time.

The Makarov pistol has only been usable in Black Ops 1 and 2.

It popped up during an offline session against bots, so don’t expect to see this random bug in an online match either. It would be surprising to see the weapon appear in an Infinity Ward title for the first time after such a long gap, though anything is possible.

With Treyarch taking over Warzone with the transition to Black Ops Cold War, however, it would make more sense to see the Makarov in 2021.
