Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman has slammed his Huntsmen teammates after they allegedly left him in the dark on the decision to remove him from Chicago’s CDL roster ahead of the upcoming Seattle Home Series later this month.

While Chicago Huntsmen sit in second place overall in the 2020 Call of Duty League season, recent Top 4 finishes have paved the way for a roster shuffle.

The squad has allegedly been bickering” for weeks as they struggled to string top-tier performances together again. This in-house drama has come to a head in the form of Gunless being benched ahead of the Florida Home Series.

According to the now-benched Huntsmen star, however, the new roster move was a shock to him as much as anyone else. After hearing of the news, Gunless booted up his Twitch stream and reacted to his newfound substitute position.

After months of teaming with  ‘T2P’ duo Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Matthew ‘Formal’ Piper, as well as Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson and Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon, Gunless said he was left shocked after being kept in the dark for Chicago’s plans.

“I don’t know how I benched myself. I didn’t even know I was benched until today,” he explained as substitute player Jordon ‘General’ General filled his shoes in the Huntsmen’s scrims on May 4.

“Nobody wanted to say a word to me. Ain’t that sad,” the benched star continued. “The only reason I learned that everything was happening was from other people.”

“None of my teammates wanted to say a word to me on what was happening. Not one of them had the f***ing cojones to send a text message.”

 

Hopping straight back into things and scrimming on-stream with a new roster, Gunless has already been mixing it up with the likes of Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt, Trei ‘Trei’ Morris, and Renato ‘Saints’ Forza — all substitutes for their respective CDL teams.

Rounding out the scrim team is Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan, after he too was benched by OpTic Gaming LA in favor of Chino ahead of the upcoming Florida series.

Official word is yet to come from the Huntsmen organization on the matter, and only time will tell if Gunless’ squadmates will try to amend the situation before their next CDL appearance. 

 

While the Florida series kicks off this weekend, the Huntsmen aren’t set to compete until Seattle’s event on May 22. The squad now sits 20 points behind the Empire after watching their Dallas rivals claim top-spot at their own Chicago event.

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.
