Luminosity found themselves on the end of another shock defeat on day two of week four in the CWL Pro League, this time at the hands of UNILAD, as Sean “Seany” O’Connor clutched for the win.

Luminosity’s new look squad with Matthew “FormaL” Piper replacing Sam “Octane” Larew was on a two game losing run coming into the match, after losses to OpTic Gaming and an upset against Mindfreak.

They were in desperate need of a win to get back on track, but coming up against UNILAD who were in form after a win over eUnited in their first match of the week, it would be no easy task.

Luminosity started strong with a very convincing Hardpoint win, 250-128, but were unable to keep the momentum in game two Search and Destroy or game three CTF (where UNILAD’s Wuskin was on fire), and LG were in a hole going into map four.

They did manage to narrowly force the fifth deciding map, where the teams battled on London Docks S&D, but UNILAD were brimming with confidence.

Edging out a 5-3 lead, Luminosity thought they had forced another round when they put Seany in a 1v3 position, but he played his timing and angles to perfection to pull off the clutch.

FormaL himself will regret challenging from cover in the final 1v1, but Seany barely wasted a bullet putting him down and defusing.

The loss leaves Luminosity with a 2-4 series record overall, far from what they would have expected from the first six matches, languishing in 7th place in Division B.

UNILAD meanwhile are on a roll, having won four series consecutively, and the win over LG will be another big confidence boost.

Luminosity will look to bounce back against CompLexity on June 7th, before the league takes a break for CWL Anaheim.

Modern Warfare & Warzone Oct 28 update nerfs JAK-12 shotgun: patch notes

A new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone patch, deployed on October 28, nerfs Season 6’s JAK-12 shotgun while addressing a few bugged issues across Verdansk and multiplayer playlists.

The R9-0 shotgun with Dragon’s Breath rounds may be the most popular shottie in Call of Duty right now, following nerfs to the Origin-12, but it’s not the one Infinity Ward is most concerned with fixing. Instead, the developers have tuned the JAK-12, explicitly addressing two of its attachments: the Drum Mags and FRAG-12 Ammo.

While players, and particularly Warzone fans, may feel that the R9-0 is the hefty close-quarters gun most worthy of adjustments, Infinity Ward have gotten ahead of the curve and looked to fix its recent peer. The two nerfs to the JAK-12 contrastingly impact its mobility when stocked with a drum and its firing rate when stocked with the somewhat-recently buffed shotgun slugs.

Elsewhere, the developers have made some changes to playlists due to bugs and fixed some exploits. Unfortunately, Shipment still remains off of the menu.

In Season 6, Infinity Ward buffed shotgun slugs so that they would feel more accurate and register hits at further ranges. This, coupled with the surprising efficiency of the JAK-12’s drums, likely prompted the nerfs to both sorts of ammunition attachments. But, with 8-R Dragon’s Breath rounds still available, the gun hasn’t been rendered unusable.

As for the other adjustments made with this patch, they mostly surround smaller bugs and exploits. In Verdansk, a Warzone bunker has been reopened, a Zombie Royale exploit has been fixed, and Durable Gas Masks have been removed (but they were already very rare anyway). In multiplayer, the pumpkin heads are back in action while Snipers Only (TDM) has been removed from the playlist due to a bug, with Gunfight – Snipers Only (3v3) taking its place.

October 28 full patch notes

WEAPONS:

  • JAK-12:
    • Reduced movement and ADS speed on JAK-12 Drum Mags
    • Reduced rate of fire on JAK-12 FRAG-12 ammo
    • Updating the JAK-12 FRAG-12 ammo description to say ‘slugs’

GENERAL FIXES:

  • Fix for an issue where the code for Bunker 3 wasn’t functioning as intended
  • Fix for an issue with the Riot Shield that would only occur when players obtained the pumpkin head after getting 3+ kills (pumpkin heads are back on!)
  • Fix for an exploit in Zombie Royale
  • Temporarily removing the Durable Gas Masks from Warzone
  • Removing Snipers Only (TDM) while we fix a bug. We’ll be replacing this mode with Gunfight – Snipers Only (3v3)
