Call of Duty World Champion Adam ‘KiLLa’ Sloss can’t understand why no pro teams have opted to approach him about coaching, despite his experience and knowledge.

Sloss won a World Championship back on Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, playing alongside Karma, MiRx and Parasite on Fariko Impact. Since then, he has struggled to reach the same levels of success, being a part of 12 different teams since the start of 2016.

Regardless of his professional struggles in the last few years, he has remained a prominent community member, still renown for his understanding of Call of Duty, despite his performances slipping, and has vented his frustrations that he has not been utilized as a coach.

“Imagine being known as a player that has found and created the meta in multiple cod titles over years and has known to be a great strategist of the game,” he tweeted, “always coming up with unique game plans and game winning SnD pushes.”

In a series of now-deleted follow up tweets, KiLLa even called out “shitty” teams that have failed to approach him for his services.

Coaching in Call of Duty has become more common of late, as the esport has grown in both tactics and the amount of money involved. Many ex-professionals have gone into coaching, for example Tyler ‘TeePee’ Polchow, who coaches OpTic Gaming.

Many fans backed KiLLa, believing he has what it takes to make a competent coach. It even prompted professional layer Dylan ‘MadCat’ Daly to respond, who believes KiLLa should have had a “coach spot somewhere this year 100%, got fools on 5 figures a month for nothing I know you’d push a decent team to a chip!”

KiLLa remains a popular member of the Call of Duty community and many would be eager to see him play a more influential role in the professional scene, and see what tactics he could bring to a pro team.

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.
