Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow has commented on the possibility of him joining a future 100 Thieves Call of Duty team after Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag dropped a hint about the organization entering the scene.

Competitive Call of Duty fans around the world have been hoping to see 100 Thieves enter the scene ever since Nadeshot revived the esports organization in late 2017.

Once the face of competitive CoD and OpTic Gaming, Nadeshot retired from competing in 2015 after a disappointing run at the Call of Duty World Championship and would later leave the OpTic brand that he had been associated with for so long.

After some time away from the forefront of esports, Nadeshot bounced back in a big way when he secured a League of Legends NA LCS franchise and brought together a 100 Thieves squad that secured a second place finish in their first ever split.

Nadeshot isn’t stopping there, though. The YouTube sensation recently revealed that 100 Thieves will be entering the Fortnite Battle Royale scene and on May 31st, during a personal stream, he confirmed that there will also be a 100 Thieves Call of Duty team “this year”.

As with anything 100 Thieves related, Nadeshot’s statements immediately sparked a debate about who might join the team when it is formed.

One name at the top of many people’s list is former OpTic star Karma. When asked about that possibility, the three time World Champion stated that he would “consider it” if Nadeshot could get “good players”.

In previous discussions about a 100 Thieves CoD team, Nadeshot made it clear that he would want at least one member from the OpTic Gaming roster that won the 2017 World Championship.

This means that Karma would be on the shortlist along with Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, and Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter as the foundation of the roster.

Scump and Crimsix are the only members of the roster that are still playing under OpTic and FormaL recently signed with Luminosity Gaming so Karma would be the most eligible free agent.

However, it is altogether possible that Nadeshot has decided to wait until the release of the next Call of Duty title, Black Ops 4, before making a swoop for the players that he wants under the 100 Thieves umbrella.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is practically a household name for FPS fans and non-gamers alike. It’s no shock then that CoD fans were beyond excited at the possibility of a PS5 version of the game. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become a staple title for the CoD franchise. After a recent clarification from an Infinity Ward dev that more content is coming soon fans have jumped back aboard the Modern Warfare hype train.

This announcement had fans scratching their heads over what new content would be released, especially when Black Ops: Cold War and its Warzone season are likely to be the focus of development for some time.

A reddit user, however, has sparked some life into the community by leaking a possible PS5 release for Modern Warfare in the near future.

Modern Warfare is the game that birthed Call of Duty: Warzone, which has exploded into a fully fledged esport.

Modern Warfare on PS5 Leak

A post and possible leak on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours by reddit user asjonesy99 has seized the interest of CoD fans from across the globe.

The post sees the possibility of there being a PS5 version of the title available in the near future. When purchasing the game, the dropdown menu shows the original PS4 version followed by a PS5 version.

The original post states that when he selects this option it becomes locked. After checking a plethora of other games, there are no other options for PS5 versions, so either this is a simple error or CoD are planning a future PS5 update for the game.

While excited, a lot of fans weren’t particularly shocked at this leak simply due to the popularity of Warzone, which launched alongside Modern Warfare in October 2019 and is fully integrated into the game.

The future is of course uncertain, and in turn this means that this could be nothing. However, it’s really exciting to think that Modern Warfare will be back with a bang to continue to inspire future generations of FPS players in the same way it has inspired the current one.
