The Black Ops 4 season hasn’t been the greatest journey for 100 Thieves’ Call of Duty team, but it looks like they’re set to receive a major boost heading into the CWL Pro League.

100 Thieves started the season with a disappointing 9th-12th finish at CWL Vegas, but ultimately found their footing to qualify for the CWL Pro League.

It now looks as though the team is going to be receiving some extra help during the Pro League, according to 100 Thieves CEO and Founder Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag.

Nadeshot was doing an Ask Me Anything on the 100 Thieves’ official subreddit when he was asked about the prospect of the team securing a coach for the CoD roster.

“[We’re] working on it, [we] have some really great options. We’re going to work this out, just be patient and I believe all of our Call of Duty supporters are going to be happy,” Nadeshot said about his team picking up a coach.

Given the ups and down the 100 Thieves roster has gone through this year, the acquisition of a coach could only serve to help the roster improve even more going into the Pro League.

This is especially true given some of the talent that will be available to coach during the season.

With the Pro League moving away from a two-stage format with relegation, any of the teams that missed out on qualifying have no second chance to make it back in.

As such, some of those players who failed to qualify have turned to coaching for the upcoming Pro League.

In addition to a new coach, 100 Thieves will also soon be picking up a sixth player since each Pro League team is required to have a substitute.

The CWL Pro League kicks off on February 4, while 100 Thieves will also compete atCWL Fort Worth in March.

Modern Warfare glitch reveals unreleased Makarov pistol

Infinity Ward adds weapons to Modern Warfare with each new season, though it appears even more have been in the works behind the scenes as a secret pistol was accidentally handed out due to a confusing glitch.

Problematic bugs have been on the rise once again throughout Modern Warfare’s sixth and final season. Warzone players have had their runs ended by broken Loadout Drops while others have literally been left in the dark as a result of a game-breaking issue. Despite these problems, every now and then, glitches can actually be a pleasant surprise.

This was the case on October 27 as a player shockingly stumbled upon a new weapon. While playing offline, they noticed something suspicious. One of the AI-controlled enemies was wielding a unique pistol.

After taking them down and picking up the gun, the Makarov was revealed in all its glory. Fit with custom animations, an unfinished model, but all the firepower you’d expect from the classic secondary.

The Makarov pistol first appeared in 2010’s Black Ops and soon featured in the game’s sequel before disappearing. It was usable across the campaign and multiplayer in the first game, though only appeared in the story for the follow-up.

Evidently, it’s an extremely rare weapon compared to some iconic guns in the Call of Duty franchise. Having only appeared in Treyarch releases, it’s a surprise to see the pistol up and running in Modern Warfare.

It appeared as a Renetti on the ground and the icon matched up as well. Though it’s very clear a good amount of work has been put into the gun. From unique reload and inspect animations to its own balancing, it may have been in the plans for a previous seasonal update.

Given the unfinished model of the weapon, however, there’s a good chance we don’t see it properly anytime soon. Infinity Ward could have been testing it months ago before scrapping the gun. Perhaps it’s simply in the game’s files as a placeholder. There’s really no telling at this point in time.

The Makarov pistol has only been usable in Black Ops 1 and 2.

It popped up during an offline session against bots, so don’t expect to see this random bug in an online match either. It would be surprising to see the weapon appear in an Infinity Ward title for the first time after such a long gap, though anything is possible.

With Treyarch taking over Warzone with the transition to Black Ops Cold War, however, it would make more sense to see the Makarov in 2021.
