The infamous ‘CodBurner’ is back for the off-season rostermania, and is causing a stir in the community with a number of supposed insider tips on what the upcoming season holds.

However, not everyone is pleased with the information being spread, which is all of course completely unverified.


Previously, they have correctly predicted some roster situations, and other pro players have confirmed that there is certain things that only someone well connected could know.

In a recent Reddit post, the CoDBurner was discussing various potential moves, when someone posed the possibility of OpTic Gaming making a change.


The mysterious account replies that Evil Geniuses’ Bryan “Apathy” Zhelyazkov is being eyed up, and explained who he would replace if the move went through:

methodz. i know scump doesnt want to play w him in bo4. i think methodz only stays if it is 5v5 or if larew’s +1 pisses off the team and org more


He clarified that by “larew’s +1” was referring to his long time girlfriend Berta, who didn’t take kindly to the suggestion, responding on Reddit:


“you really have to learn that that’s not how comp cod works & you really have to learn info before you post it online. it’s literally up to the team & managers, not if the girlfriend gets along with anyone? & i’m friends with the org, i’m a mod in stream chats, like don’t drag me into this to get some attention. you look hella dumb.”

Berta also took to Twitter to accuse the CoDBurner account, in a now deleted tweet:

“this new codburner guy is a fake & has no idea what he’s talking about. damn, i hope to see the real one come back to shut this dude up”

Octane himself later also took to Twitter to clear the speculation.



OpTic Gaming ended the season very poorly, but there is no guarantee that they are considering a roster change at all. Both Seth “Scump” Abner and Ian “Crimsix” Porter will be expected to stay, with newest members Octane and Anthony “Zinni” Methodz perhaps less secure, and more liable to be poached by other teams.

With Black Ops 4 releasing on October 12 – a month earlier than usual – there is less time in the off season for rosters to make up their mind.

Black Ops Cold War leaker reveals name & details for Warzone “nuke” event

After months of speculation about a possible nuclear bomb going off in Verdansk, it seems like the event might actually be happening in Call of Duty: Warzone, at least according to new leaks.

Pretty much ever since the announcement that Warzone would be integrated into new Call of Duty games every year, there’s been a ton of speculation about a possible nuke going off in Verdansk.


As per the rumors, this event would essentially act as a starting over point for the battle royale game, allowing it to become part of the Black Ops Cold War ecosystem a bit more smoothly and cohesively.

Now that we’re getting closer to the release of BOCW, it only makes sense for more and more leaks to surface, if some recent tweets by known CoD leaker TheGamingRevolution are to be believed, we now even have a name for the event.


According to the leaker, who has accurately revealed CoD details in the past, the nuke event is set to be titled “Rebirth”, which is a fitting name considering a new era for Warzone is starting.

He also pointed out that there will be a “Soviet version” of the Alcatraz map coming to the game, called “Rebirth Island.” Alcatraz is in reference to the map with the same name released in Blackout, CoD’s first battle royale, in which there were also Zombies running around the island.

This isn’t the first time Alcatraz has been mentioned when it comes to Warzone; several other dataminers have mentioned that the island will be added when BOCW launches, and this latest intel from TGR aligns with that.

Alcatraz was last seen in Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode back in 2018.

Of course, the presence of a nuke in Verdansk isn’t totally new either; when the many bunkers throughout the map were finally opened in an earlier season, players spotted what appeared to be a nuclear warhead in one of the enclosures.

While nothing has happened with these bombs since then, their presence, along with all these leaks and speculation, have further hinted that some sort of major event is on the horizon.

Could this mean that the map is simply using a picture of Alcatraz as filler or is it something a bit more complicated than that? Either way, with pieces of code in the game files already, it doesn’t seem like we’ll have to wait long to find out.


Interestingly enough, while TGR notes that Alcatraz and Rebirth Island will be one and the same, the latter is actually where the Russians produced the deadly Nova 6 gas in the first Black Ops title, and it has nothing to do with the Alcatraz prison.
