In the latest episode of Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez’s Eavesdrop Podcast, Dallas Empire head coach and general manager Ray ‘Rambo’ Lussier has explained what he believes to be one of the keys to Dallas’ success.

Rambo officially joined the Empire in March 2020 after months of back-and-forth negotiations and a lengthy VISA application process, overseeing the squad prior to their first Home Series win in Los Angeles.

Although it took some time to reach the success that seemed inevitable during pre-season tournaments and scrims, Rambo has explained one of the main strengths of the squad at throughout the early stages of the season.

While explaining how working for Advanced Warfare and World War II developers Sledgehammer Games helped him develop his coaching and management ability – after admitting that he probably wasn’t that fun to play with – Rambo heaped praise on the younger Dallas Empire players.

“Clay and Crim have done a lot with the young kids,” he said, speaking of CoD rookies Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal and Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro. “There are so many small things at a pro level that you need to be able to do that they don’t really understand even just yet.”

Despite this, he said that Crimsix and Clayster have managed to teach them enough to play as someone much more experienced, with Crim and Clay productive in the way they speak, while “the young kids just listen and know they’re in a position to learn.”

This combination of veteran leadership and young, raw skill seemed like a great mixture going into the season and, if Rambo’s praise of the young players’ abilities to listen and learn so efficiently is accurate, shows that they have the potential to be even better than they already are.

It’s clear that Rambo still has a fantastic mind for Call of Duty, often heralded as one of the smartest to ever play the game, and iLLeY and Shotzzy will no doubt come out of this season as far better players than they could have imagined if they continue to take this opportunity to learn from some of the best.

It’s not clear yet whether this will result in more championships – especially given the ongoing global crisis – but Rambo clearly believes this team has something that not many others do.

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.

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.
