Longtime Call of Duty pro player Dylan ‘MadCat’ Daly has announced free agency ahead of the Black Ops 4 CWL Season.

The veteran EU player will be leaving Splyce after spending the last two CWL seasons with them, helping them win one event and place second at five others.

MadCat announced that he will be leaving Splyce in a tweet he posted on August 23.

I am no longer apart of @Splyce, was a decent run but everything comes to an end at one point. Keep it simple the team no longer became a team a long time ago which is not good for anyone. I am not restricted and will be on the look out for a team.

He followed that up with another tweet in response to a comment, confirming that he was not happy as a member of the team.

Nah not really I wasn’t happy in the slightest best for everyone

Splyce confirmed MadCat’s departure with a tweet of their own, wishing their now former player well in the future.

Today we’re parting ways with @MadCat with our deepest gratitude for his two years of service to Splyce’s Call of Duty team. He is a fierce competitor who left his mark on our team, and we wish him best in all his future endeavors.

After moving from Millenium in September 2016 ahead of the Infinite Warfare season, MadCat was one of the integral players that led the Splyce to several successful placings, including the CWL Global Pro League Stage 1 title.

Splyce enjoyed some early success in the WWII season, placing second at both CWL Dallas and Birmingham. However, poor finishes at all of the events that followed, including a 17-24 placing at CWL Champs, was a sign that the team was falling apart and changes were due to be made.

It is not yet clear where MadCat will end up for the Black Ops 4 season, but considering his 8 year veteran experience and integral role in several successful rosters, he will likely be back in the Pro League next season.

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

Activision
All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
