100 Thieves professional Call of Duty player Kenny Williams has revealed the reason why the organization acquired Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt and Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat.

Kenny was interviewed by The Esports Dispatch host Landon ‘LandO’ Sanders to discuss the two newest signings to 100 Thieves.

When asked by Sanders about his new teammates, Kenny made it clear that he’s a big fan of his new squad, hyping both players and their incredible talent.

Kenny stated that Enable got the call to join 100 Thieves due to his leadership qualities, saying; “Ian’s a great in-game leader. Teaming with him for a few months showed how great a teammate he really is, and how good his communication is.”

The former Team Kaliber star believes Enable has been overlooked by previous teammates, but says that Wyatt’s leadership is invaluable. “He doesn’t make the flashy plays, but he brings the team together.” affirmed Kenny. “His leadership is so key.”

Williams also took a moment to answer critics who feel Enable may not be able to adapt to playing with a submachine gun in Black Ops 4, clarifying that Enable was actually Team Kaliber’s second submachine gun player alongside Kenny during the final stages of the WW2 season.

The American believes that SlasheR, acquired from Rise Nation, is one of the best players in the world, calling Liddicoat “one of the best AR players in the past few years”. “You can’t go wrong,” laughed Kenny, “He’s just amazing!”

With the 100 Thieves roster now set headed into the new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season, it will be interesting to see how the team can gel together ahead of the first competitive event in Las Vegas, December 7 – 9.

With the announcement that Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War has been delayed, Activision and Treyarch also confirmed that players will be able to get their hands on two free bundles ahead of the first content drop. Here’s everything you need to know about what it includes and how to get it.

While Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War, which was set to bring brand new maps and integrate the game with Warzone, was originally set to come out on December 10, the developers have now announced a slew of new details about the first post-content season, including the fact that it will now launch on December 16.

During this deep dive, Treyarch also confirmed that Black Ops Cold War players will be able to get their hands on some new free bundles for the game before the season launches, presumably in order to help tide people over until the new content drop. Here’s how you can get your hands on both bundles.

Field Research and Certified Bundles

The news of the bundles was announced when Activision confirmed that Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War had been delayed.

According to Activision, both bundles are set to include a number of different items to use in-game: five in the Field Research bundle and four in the Certified bundle.

While these packs are specifically for Black Ops Cold War players, it’s important to remember that some of these items, like the blueprint and Operators, are available for use in Warzone as well.

  • Field Research Bundle
    • Epic Park Operator skin
    • Epic SMG blueprint
    • Epic reticle
    • Epic Calling Card
    • Rare Weapon Charm
  • Certified Bundle
    • Epic Garcia Operator skin
    • Rare Assault Rifle blueprint
    • Epic reticle
    • Epic Weapon Charm

Unfortunately, we don’t know much else about the bundle and we have no idea what they will look like exactly, as Activision didn’t end up releasing any images of them. Once they become available, however, we’ll update this article.

How to get both bundles for free

Luckily, players won’t have to do much of anything to get their hands on it. That being said, they won’t be given to everyone and you do have to do a simple task to get it. According to Activision, both bundles will be given to players who log-in to the game between December 8 at 10AM PST (1PM EST, 6PM GMT) and December 15 at 11PM PST (2AM EST, 7AM GMT on December 16).

To be clear, logging in simply means that you just have to open the game and get to the main menu. Playing a match isn’t required, although the chance of players opening the game without playing it is slim, to say the least.

That being said, it’s great that Treyarch is giving it away for free. Here’s hoping it’s good enough to hold people over until the new season.
