KiLLa has incredible excuse for losing a round on Black Ops 4

Former Call of Duty World Champion Adam ‘KiLLa’ Sloss ran into an amusing issue while streaming Black Ops 4 on January 8.

Sloss is well known amongst Call of Duty fans for his funny quips and hilarious streams, and viewers were gifted another classic moment on Tuesday.

Back in December, KiLLa hinted at retiring from professional CoD following a disappointing finish at CWL Las Vegas, but the American has continued to grind Black Ops 4, competing in various Search & Destroy tournaments while regularly playing wager matches.

KiLLa’s Raised by Kings squad missed out on a spot in the CWL Pro League Qualifiers.

While playing a wager match with Devin ‘TTinyy’ Robinson and Marcus ‘MBoZe’ Blanks, the former Fariko Impact star found himself in a one-versus-one situation on Arsenal, with KiLLa hunting around the map searching for his last opponent.

Seconds before Sloss would spot his opponent, the light in the streamer’s room suddenly went out, leaving him in darkness as he was killed by the enemy, losing the round.

“I can not play in the dark!” yelled the infuriated KiLLa, as his teammates laughed. “What the fuck just happened dude? Oh man, I’m playing the last round in the dark dude. I don’t know, my light bulb went out, I guess!”

While KiLLA claimed that he was unable to play without a light on, the American and his teammates went on to win the final round of the map to secure victory for their squad.

Despite the win, Sloss had no intentions of continuing to play in the dark, telling TTiny and MBoZe as soon as the match finished: “I’ve got to go get a new light bro, this is unbelievable!”

Warzone dev reveals fix for missing Trick or Treat rewards bug

One of Warzone’s lead developers has responded to the frustrating Trick or Treat rewards bug during the Haunting of Verdansk event, with players not getting the Pumpkin Punisher Grau blueprint after completing all the challenges.

The Haunting of Verdansk is the special Halloween event in Warzone, with lots of new content for players to sink their teeth into.

This includes new Operator packs, including skins from horror films Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as the new Zombie Royale game mode and, of course, the Trick or Treat Rewards.

By searching chests in 16 different locations, players can earn all manner of items from calling cards and emblems to the awesome Cleaver melee blueprint. As a result of unlocking all 16, you’re supposed to get the Grau blueprint weapon, Pumpkin Punisher — but for some people, this isn’t happening.

The Pumpkin Punisher gives a spooky spin on a previous Warzone favorite weapon, the Grau 5.56.

A number of players have reported that even after completing all 16 Trick or Treat challenges and unlocking all the rewards, the Pumpkin Punisher remains locked and isn’t added to their Armory.

One player reported the issue to Joe Cecot, the Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at developer Infinity Ward, and he suggested that the likely issue is the UI thinks players have everything, but they’re actually missing one of the rewards.

To fix this, Cecot offered a workaround, though it might not be particularly fun: he advises players to hit all the locations again and the gun will likely be unlocked, to make sure the game properly registers the completion of every single challenge. He also says that it’s “most likely the location that is still not registered will give candy out of the box.”

Of course, this will be slightly frustrating for players who have not yet unlocked the Pumpkin Punisher, despite having completed all of the relevant tasks.

Cecot did add that in the long run, they’ll “most likely fix people in this state,” though it’s unclear when that could happen, or even if at all.
