The first CWL 2K series since the start of Stage Tow took place on May 19th, with 2000 pro points up for grabs for first place prize and an additional $500 USD.

This event was another single-elimination online competition, but does not feature teams from the CWL Pro League, giving teams outside of the top level an opportunity to rack up some extra points.

Ghost Gaming featuring big names Andres “Lacefield” Lacefield, Chris “Parasite” Duarte, Adam “GodRx” Brown, and Casey “Pandur” Romano came out in first place.

Team WaR had a particularly strong showing finishing as the tournament’s runner-up.

On the other end of the spectrum GGEA Orange, Lightning Pandas, and Heatwave Baby – a team featuring Mike “Blfire” Glushenok, Jeremy “StuDyy” Astacio, Michael “SpaceLy” Schmale and Jared “Nagafen” Harrell – all suffered a disappointing top 16 finish.

Check out the full top 16 placements below:

Warzone dev reveals fix for missing Trick or Treat rewards bug

One of Warzone’s lead developers has responded to the frustrating Trick or Treat rewards bug during the Haunting of Verdansk event, with players not getting the Pumpkin Punisher Grau blueprint after completing all the challenges.

The Haunting of Verdansk is the special Halloween event in Warzone, with lots of new content for players to sink their teeth into.

This includes new Operator packs, including skins from horror films Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as the new Zombie Royale game mode and, of course, the Trick or Treat Rewards.

By searching chests in 16 different locations, players can earn all manner of items from calling cards and emblems to the awesome Cleaver melee blueprint. As a result of unlocking all 16, you’re supposed to get the Grau blueprint weapon, Pumpkin Punisher — but for some people, this isn’t happening.

The Pumpkin Punisher gives a spooky spin on a previous Warzone favorite weapon, the Grau 5.56.

A number of players have reported that even after completing all 16 Trick or Treat challenges and unlocking all the rewards, the Pumpkin Punisher remains locked and isn’t added to their Armory.

One player reported the issue to Joe Cecot, the Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at developer Infinity Ward, and he suggested that the likely issue is the UI thinks players have everything, but they’re actually missing one of the rewards.

To fix this, Cecot offered a workaround, though it might not be particularly fun: he advises players to hit all the locations again and the gun will likely be unlocked, to make sure the game properly registers the completion of every single challenge. He also says that it’s “most likely the location that is still not registered will give candy out of the box.”

Of course, this will be slightly frustrating for players who have not yet unlocked the Pumpkin Punisher, despite having completed all of the relevant tasks.

Cecot did add that in the long run, they’ll “most likely fix people in this state,” though it’s unclear when that could happen, or even if at all.
