The Call of Duty competitive landscape will drastically change soon with the introduction of a franchised league, and Heretics owner Jorge ‘Goorgo’ Orejudo is seeing his chances improve to being a part of it.

It’s going to be a long road for teams trying to get into one of the coveted franchised spots in the new Call of Duty League, and not every household team name will be able to make it in.

While the likes of OpTic as well as other investors have secured their spots in Los Angeles and Minnesota, others spots have already been claimed as well in the new league’s Atlanta, Dallas, New York, Paris and Toronto teams.

MLGEven with highs and lows, the Heretics have been an exciting team to watch and could add value to a franchised league.

The question of owning a franchised team is still up in the air for Goorgo, but he’s been giving his fans hopeful updates as his “chances” of getting in the league are steadily increasing.

In a mid-June update, the Heretics owner said they “have like a 50% chance of getting a spot,” but after his latest rounds of talks he boosted that percentage ever so slightly to around 60%.

Even though it’s going to be a waiting game for the CoD team with the most vamos, the owner came back on July 8 to give another key update in their progress with simply: “70-30.”

This is directly referencing his other messages indicating the possibility of owning a franchised spot in the league. It seems that whatever has happened since his July 5 update of “60-40,” Goorgo has been making good headway into locking down a spot.

MLGHeretics fans would love to see an iteration of the team in the new franchised league.

With the league already set to feature international spots in Paris and Toronto, there’s little reason to suggest that a CWL club couldn’t be situated in a major Spanish city.

This might be one of the focal points to iron out before Goorgo and company get to a 100% chance of being welcomed into the new league.

The Heretics have been one of the most exciting teams to see in the CWL, and have also qualified for a spot in the Pro League Playoffs.

Black Ops Cold War is still a few weeks away from launch, though an early leak appears to have confirmed all 21 Scorestreaks that will be available from day one.

Killstreaks and Scorestreaks have been a staple of the Call of Duty franchise for many years now. Black Ops Cold War is sticking to the formula with a few unique changes, though there might be more streaks to unlock than ever before. 

Treyarch’s next release is set to drop on November 13 though major leaks are already starting to slip through the cracks. We got our first look at a list of Scorestreaks through the game’s early access Alpha and Beta tests. However, that was barely scratching the surface if the new intel holds true.

Black Ops Cold War is set to boast 21 unique streaks at launch. All of which can be earned across multiple lives so long as you’re adding to your total score by tallying kills and completing objectives. While we can’t include the leaked image as to avoid DMCAs, here’s a rundown on each and every streak.

The early access Alpha gave us a look at just a few Black Ops Cold War Scorestreaks.

First up, the cheapest streak in the game appears to be the Incendiary Bow. Just like the War Machine available in the Beta, this will be an equippable weapon to deal extraordinary damage. Next up are a few familiar inclusions on the cheaper side of things. The RC-XD, Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane, and Care Package are all to be expected. Though one new streak stands out.

At 700 points, players will seemingly be able to equip some armor just like in Warzone. The icon displays a bulletproof vest, so additional health could be on the menu in the core multiplayer experience

The Flamethrower is another fresh addition that we haven’t seen yet, while the Death Machine is reportedly also making a return. As we scale up to the more expensive streaks, a Hand Cannon is available for 2250 points. There’s no telling just how this one might work, though it could provide a One In The Chamber style buff.

At the very end of the list is the expected AI and pilotable Scorestreaks. You’ve got the Attack Helicopter and Chopper Gunner alongside a VTOL Escort and the Gunship to round things out. You’ll need to go on an absolute tear to unlock the final streak, however, as it’s placed at 10,000 points.

Below is a complete list of all Scorestreaks coming to Black Ops Cold War.

All 21 Scorestreaks in Black Ops Cold War

  • Incendiary Bow – 500
  • RC-XD – 600
  • Armor – 700

  • Death Machine – 1,500
  • Cruise Missile – 1,750
  • Artillery – 2,000
  • Hand Cannon –  2,250
  • Napalm Strike – 2,500
  • Air Patrol – 3,000
  • War Machine – 3,250
  • Strafe Run – 3,500
  • Attack Helicopter – 4,000
  • H.A.R.P. – 5,000

Outside of AI-controlled air support, there will be a few pilotable streaks as usual in Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, it’s worth taking this information with a grain of salt for now. There’s a good chance this information comes from an earlier build of the game. Some Streaks may have been removed or significantly changed already. 

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled over the coming days, however. If early copies of the game are already out in the wild, more leaks will likely be on the way.
