Red Reserve teammates Skrapz and Rated lock horns as CWL roster drama heats up

Red Reserve despite rumors they may sell up.

After weeks of speculation, Skrapz announced on April 1 that he had become a restricted free agent and was free to begin discussions with other squads. However, he has been unable to move prior to April 5, the date on which the current roster lock would be lifted. 

Red Reserve’s Rated fired the first shot at Skrapz.

What did Rated and Skrapz say?

With the conclusion of the cross-divisional portion of the Pro League, teams found out their fate for CWL London’s pool play stage. Rated tweeted his joy at the draw around Pool C – which will include eUnited, Red Reserve, Team Envy and Evil Geniuses. 

The Welshman stated that the draw for the pool “couldn’t have gone better” and while he doesn’t know exactly what team he’ll be playing for, he’ll get to play the “biggest yes man in the scene” – although he refrained from naming who he was talking about. 

Rumors have suggested that Skrapz is set to join Team Envy once the roster lock is lifted, yet his reply to Rated’s celebration may have poured cold water over that move. 

Skrapz took issue with the set of tweets seemingly aimed in his direction, replying: “Yes man? You best hope you get on Envy, otherwise, you’re on a flight back home. Good luck fella.”

The reply from Skrapz sparked an even bigger, and more personal exchange, as Rated shot straight back by calling Skrapz the “fakest guy in the scene,” and that he’ll be “just fine” without playing alongside Marshall after “blessing” him this year. 

“I blessed you with a league spot this year because we wouldn’t have even qualified if I wasn’t about!,” replied Skrapz. “I got myself where I am today. Was fun playing with you until I told you I didn’t wanna play with you.”

Rated and Skrapz dispute possible roster change

While the pair traded personal blows, they finished up by debating roster moves – including questioning what each other had said regarding potential transfers.

Rated continued his ‘yes man’ description of Skrapz, as he said: “You never told me you weren’t playing with me, you told me you were, just like you told everyone else. Like I said, you’re just a yes man.”

Skrapz disputed that retort by stating: “I told you if Envy wanted me and you to go there I would have played with you. [Good Luck] with everything.”

It remains to be seen just who the pair will be playing for once CWL London rolls around on May 3. One thing that is clear, is that if they do lock horns on home soil, it’s set to be a heated personal match-up regardless of who they play for.

The Desert Eagle, or the .50 GS as it’s known, is finally available in Call of Duty: Mobile. Once you get your hands on it, there are a few loadouts you might want to consider. 

Typically, with the start of a new Call of Duty: Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game add in a new weapon on top of the new characters, skins, perks, and maps. 

With the start of Season 12: Going Dark, the devs added new night mode maps – including Modern Warfare’s Hackney Yard – as well as everything they usually add, but they’ve added new events and challenges, notably, Small Arms. 

Completing the seven Small Arms challenges, in numerical order, will unlock the .50 GS handgun – which is just the Desert Eagle. It’s incredibly powerful, especially with a few different loadouts.

The .50 GS is powerful, but can be a lot better.

Best CoD Mobile close range loadout for .50 GS handgun

With it being a pistol, don’t expect to be using the .50 GS at long range. You might get some shots off, but it isn’t going to work as you might like. 

Instead, focus on getting up close and personal – even if that means shooting enemies in the back. For maximum damage at close to mid range, you’ll want an extended mag, a better trigger, and an extended barrel.

For these, take the MIP Extended Light Barrel, Match Grade Trigger, and Extended Mag A. Take a laser and a bit of tape too, for those panicky, unaimed shots. 

  • Barrel: MIP Extended Light Barrel
  • Ammunition: Extended Mag A
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape
  • Laser: MIP Laser 5mW
  • Trigger Action: Match Grade Trigger

Alternatively, if you want to feel like you’re playing Modern Warfare 2, you can work in the Akimbo perk as well for a bit of additional damage.

This loadout comes courtesy of YouTuber TouchKing, who uses a muzzle, barrel, laser, and trigger action as well.

  • Muzzle: MIP Light Flash Guard
  • Barrel: OWC Marksman
  • Laser: RTC Laser 1mW
  • Trigger Action: Match Grade Trigger
  • Perk: Akimbo

The .50 GS can be made incredibly powerful with the Akimbo perk.

As for everything else, you can pretty much finish your loadout however you want – including perks, equipment, and whatever else you want to bring into the fight.
