Red Reserve Cod Pro ‘Rated’ Goes on Heated Twitter Rant “Some People are Just Cancerous Teammates”

Red Reserve Call of Duty professional player Rhys ‘Rated’ Price went on a heated Twitter rant on May 2nd.

In his flurry of furious tweets, Rated gave his opinion on one of his teammates, and may possibly revealed one of the roster changes.

Red Reserve have been one of the team frequently mentioned in the recent wave of RosterMania rumors. There were apparently talks held to bring in former UNILAD player Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall, and the outcome still remains unclear.

According to Rated it appears that Red will be making a change before the May 7th roster lock, after Tweeting out on May 2nd. 

Rated followed that up with another tweet, in which he was very complimentary of teammate Joseph ‘Joee’ Pinnington. 


Rated then crystallizes everything with one final tweet, which is actually a reply to CWL caster and analyst Joe ‘MerK’ DeLuca.


Again, when all of the tweets are taken in context of one another, it appears that the “cancerous teammates” that Rated was referring is likely to be Joshua-Lee “Joshh” Shephard.

However, all of this remains as speculation until something if officially announced and confirmed, which could happen as early as May 3rd.

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.
