Top APAC Call of Duty team, Mindfreak, have announced their first roster change after they narrowly missed out on the CWL Pro League, suffering a loss in the crucial final match.

Mindfreak have been the staple APAC team in the Pro League in previous years, and despite bringing in new talents in Luke ‘Louqa’ Rigas and Jai ‘Beastn’ Boone, were unable to secure a spot in the league for 2019.

With only one stage of the Pro League for Black Ops 4, there is no second chance to qualify, so the organization is making some changes, with the amateur circuit now their only option in the lead up to the World Championship.

Mindfreak were beaten to the Pro League by Overtime (now Denial Esports).

On February 10, the organization announced that their newest recruit, Beastn, would be the first to depart, although they say he “more than held his own” at the qualifier.

Mindfreak have not yet announced Beastn’s replacement, but it is expected that Tainted Minds player Jayden ‘Setzyy’ Hewitt will take his spot on the roster, first reported by RushBMedia.

An online CWL 1K tournament will be played on February 10 for the APAC region, in which both Mindfreak and Tainted Minds are expected to play with their new lineups.

With no official announcements made outside of Beastn’s departure, it’s possible that these lineups will be subject to change, as these top APAC teams attempt to organize the best rosters possible ahead of CWL Fort Worth, March 15 through 17.

Mindfreak CoD (Rumored)

  • Conrad ‘Shockz’ Rymarek
  • Daniel ‘Swifty’ Hickey
  • Jayden ‘Setzyy’ Hewitt
  • Lincoln ‘Fighta’ Ferguson
  • Luke ‘Louqa’ Rigas 
    • Mitchell ‘BuZZO’ Mader (coach)

Insane Warzone exploit somehow makes Juggernauts even more powerful

As though Juggernauts weren’t already enough of a problem in Warzone, a ridiculous new bug gives them a wild advantage that could outright ruin any given match.

It’s no secret that Juggernauts have been an issue for quite some time in Warzone. Every time you get an alert that one has appeared in your lobby, you know it’s going to be an uphill battle. The near-impenetrable suits of armor take some hefty killstreaks to deal with, regular guns will rarely do the job.

They can beam you down from afar with their minigun and it’s an almost guaranteed win unless strangers team-up. Despite weeks of dealing with their extreme power, Juggernaut’s have barely been addressed. While they’ve been removed as loot inside of vaults, they’re still fairly common.

These devastating suits of armor were already enough of a challenge. However, a new bug is making them even stronger. You’re going to want to look out for this insane exploit until a new patch is deployed.

Juggernaut’s might already haunt your games but this exploit makes them even more of an issue.

Juggernaut’s will already have you on your toes if one appears in your lobby. Though now you’ll have even more of a reason to be cautious. If you hear the warning that a firesale event is about to kick off, you’re about to have a real problem on your hands.

This random-chance event has paved the way for an absurd Juggernaut exploit. Items in the Buy Station are cheaper than ever, though one goodie is often free for each player as well. If you’re in a suit of armor, it turns out that one free goodie can be redeemed an unlimited number of times.

In one example, Reddit user ‘TarleenG’ was able to secure well over a dozen self-revive kits in the blink of an eye. While only one can be used at a time, this obviously creates an unbalanced state of affairs. 

If Juggernauts can provide their full squad with self-rez, it saves funds for other powerful items. Not only that, but additional copies of the item will drop on the ground. Meaning you can always return to the Buy Station later to have an endless supply of free lives.

The only plus side to this exploit is that it’s quite rare. To have a Juggernaut suit and then get a firesale event requires some crazy luck. Though it’s clearly possible and will clearly be frustrating when it happens.

Treyarch is yet to respond to this particular issue. We’ll be sure to keep you updated when a fix comes through. Perhaps in the next major update as Black Ops Cold War’s arsenal transitions into Warzone on December 10.
