More CoD Roster Intel Leaked On Stream as FaZe Clan’s ZooMaa Claims He Was Not Allowed to Leave

More mistakenly leaked information is now out about behind the scenes roster movements, as FaZe Clan’s ZooMaa has been heard stating he was not allowed to leave the team.

It has been an unfortunate 24 hours for pro players at the top level of North American Call of Duty, after lots of confidential information has got out as live streams were unknowingly broadcasting.

It is believed that the stream of Evil Geniuses player Justin “SiLLY” Fargo was left live and players in the call were unaware, hence speaking freely – not knowing there was an audience listening.

This resulted in the first major leak, in which Luminosity player Sam “Octane” Larew can be heard all but confirming that both he and Team Kaliber player Anthony “Zinni” Methodz have joined OpTic Gaming.

Unsurprisingly, this quickly spread like wildfire, and despite players’ best efforts to have to clips removed from Twitter and Reddit, the harm was done.

And it turns out this was not the only information that was leaked, as another conversation between ZooMaa and Doug “Censor” Martin has now surfaced.

In it, ZooMaa is discussing how he was not permitted to leave FaZe – presumably in order to joing OpTic Gaming (this would have been in a trade for Methodz, who OpTic already had the contract of according to Dexerto sources).

ZooMaa: “FaZe put fucking locks around me bro. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to leave FaZe.”

Censor: “You could’ve, you should have.”

ZooMaa: “No, I couldn’t have.”

Censor: “You weren’t allowed to leave?”

ZooMaa: “No, he wouldn’t let me leave”

Censor: “I thought they were going to buy you out?”

ZooMaa: “No, because it’s not like a set buy out. Like FaZe, just set, decide the [buyout (cutoff)]”

The end of the conversation is cut off, but it sounds as though there is no set buyout amount in ZooMaa’s contract, meaning FaZe Clan were within their rights to refuse any offer from another team (presumably in this case OpTic Gaming).

UPDATE: ZooMaa has now released a statement addressing the leaks, and committing his future to FaZe Clan.

Black Ops Cold War PlayStation-exclusive Zombies mode revealed

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Onslaught players will be dropped into multiplayer maps and forced to fight the undead.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
