Following theCall of Duty franchise.

Following the purchase of OpTic Gaming parent company Infinite Esports & Entertainment by Immortals Gaming Club, a joint statement was released on September 16 which announced the departure of H3CZ, the former CEO.

Having recently acquired a Los Angeles-based team spot in the upcoming Call of Duty franchise system, it was unclear who would be steering the ship for the organization with H3CZ having transitioned to NRG to operate the Chicago-based franchise. 

In a September 23 video, it was announced that Eric ‘Muddawg’ Sanders would be stepping up to the plate to lead a new Call of Duty roster under the OpTic and LA banners.

Referring to his new home he states that “It’s one of the most storied brands in Call of Duty history, I’m excited to be here.”

Activision - Call of DutyThe OpTic Gaming dynasty proved to be one of the most dominant teams in Call of Duty history.

Acknowledging those who helped build the Green Wall into the powerhouse that it is today, Muddawg highlights Hecz as “one of the most impressive people I’ve met in Call of Duty esports.”

Due to the recent sale of OpTic, the subsequent departure of H3CZ, and behind the scenes drama that saw veteran players supposedly “forced out” of the team, Muddawg “expects there to be backlash” from the fans.

“I don’t necessarily think it will be an easy thing to earn their trust and acceptance, but it’s something I really want to do eventually.”

“I have some big shoes to fill,” he states. “I know I will never be able to replace or replicate exactly what those before me did, but I’m hoping by building a strong, championship-caliber roster, that’ll be a good starting point to give the fans something to cheer for, something to get excited about. Hopefully, we can continue that rich tradition of excellence.”

The Call of Duty franchise league is set to kick-off with its inaugural season in 2020. While full rosters and even team branding have yet to be revealed, you can keep up to date with all of the latest announcements using our dedicated tracker.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
