As a former professional player, Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag knows what it takes to win a championship in Call of Duty, and is putting his faith in his all star 100 Thieves lineup to pull it off at CWL Vegas.

As only the first event of the season, the roster of Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams, Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez, Sam ‘Octane’ Larew, Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat and Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt will need to put all their talent on show to pull off the win.

Despite being a strong squad on paper, it has been a shaky start to the season for 100 Thieves, with a top 16 finish in the most recent CWL 2K (although with Kenny not playing), but the potential of the team is still to be realized.

Nadeshot, the CEO and founder of the 100 Thieves organization, is of course backing his team to win the first event, CWL Vegas on December 7, and has said that if they do so, he will get a 100 Thieves tattoo to commemorate it.

The team are not heading into the event as favorites, at least based on their online performances, but fans who watched the WWII season will recall that online results rarely reflect exactly at LAN events.

“If 100 Thieves wins the first event, I’m getting a 100 Thieves tattoo,” Nadeshot said during a live stream, although it doesn’t sound like he’s made his mind up as to where exactly he will get it on his body.

Presumably it would be a tattoo of the 100 Thieves logo, and if they don’t manage to win the first event Nadeshot will perhaps carry his promise over to the next event, until his team brings home a CoD championship.

OpTic Gaming owner Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, who Nadeshot played under for many years, has a tattoo of the OpTic logo himself, so perhaps he has been inspired by his mentor.

CWL Vegas takes place on December 7-9, with the world’s best teams descending on the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, battling it out for a $250,000 prize pool.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 teaser all but confirms Rebirth Island map

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
