NAMELESS Provides a Heartfelt Update on His Status Within the Competitive Call of Duty Scene

Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler provided a heartfelt update on his status in the competitive Call of Duty career for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Across the competitive Call of Duty scene, few can say that they have been playing for as long as NAMELESS has, with multiple years of competing under his belt.

The longtime veteran has seen it all, including a collection of different organizations, teammates, and actual Call of Duty titles over the course of his storied career.

After coming into the CoD: WWII season as a member of Evil Geniuses, NAMELESS eventually parted ways with the organization following a performance at Stage One of the CWL Pro League which saw the squad be forced to play in the Relegation tournament.

He was unable to find another roster in time for CWL Seattle, allowing him to become a member of the commentary and analysis team for the duration of the tournament, along with starting his own podcast with fellow CoD pros titled the ‘CoD Cast.’

After much thought, NAMELESS took to Twitter to announce that he will no longer be competing for the remainder of WWII, and is still unsure if he will compete during the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.

Announcement

The last 12 years of my life have been given to call of duty competitive. I have been playing Call of Duty since 2006. I have been going to events since 2010. I’m 24 so the last half of my life has been dedicated primarily to cod. This last month I’ve had a lot of time to reflect and think about my future and place in esports. I love this community. I won’t be going anywhere however I am not going to be competing for the remainder of this game.

I do realize that when most people do this, it is the end of their professional career. So I definitely have that in mind and I am not sure if I will be competing in Black Ops 4 either. It is just a smarter move for the position I am in. When you’re on a pro team, you get salary. When you get released you no longer get that salary or anything going forward. Which means if I were to make a top “non-league” team, our salary on an organization would be very low by previous standards and the quality of players available is very average. Which means performance would be reliant on a miracle and practice is minimal with all the teams at pro-league. This sucks because I feel like I am capable to compete at the top level and have shown that this year. However in my position, it would be extremely difficult to rise back to the top. I have thought this through, talked about it with my friends and come to this decision. Honestly, this was the hardest decision of my entire life. I just want to say thank you all very much for the support you’ve given me in this community. I will obviously will still be around, I just may not have a controller in my hand.  I have something planned and I will have more information on that soon! Until then, my full time career will be content creation so check out my streams if you haven’t!

Love,

NAMELESS

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
