Caster Clint ‘Maven’ Evans is well known amongst the Call of Duty community for his comedic outbursts, and during a recent episode of Trading Shots he was at it again.

Celebrating a victory in the discussion-based competition show, Maven took the opportunity to make fun of his fellow casters Ben ‘Benson’ Bowe and Joe ‘MerK’ DeLuca, Rise Nation, OpTic Gaming and even the production staff working on the show.

The 33 year-old first took aim at Benson, playfully informing viewers that he didn’t intend to be “soft” like his colleague and friend, before letting MerK know that he was a “budget Mr X” to the delight of the Englishman. 

Maven wasn’t finished with Benson however, declaring that he was “the worst thing to come out of England since Momo.”

Evans then moved on to the CWL production team, thanking them for not editing out the 30 minute pre-roll video before they uploaded episodes of Trading Shots to YouTube.

The caster finally turned his attention to two of Call of Duty’s biggest teams, Rise Nation and OpTic Gaming. Rise Nation’s top 16 finish was deemed “awful”, while OpTic Gaming’s failure to make it to pool play had Maven in fits of laughter.

With the Call of Duty season now finished, casters and pro teams can rest easy knowing that Maven won’t be burning them again until Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 releases on October 12.

The first official CWL event of the season will CWL Las Vegas and is scheduled to take place December 7 – 9.

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.
