The infamous CoDBurner has dropped new information regarding Red Reserve, a Call of Duty team currently in turmoil, but long time player Rhys ‘Rated‘ Price has shut down the claims.

Red Reserve’s future in Call of Duty is currently up in the air, with two players announcing free agency shortly after the end of their cross-division split in the CWL Pro League.

Matthew ‘Skrapz‘ Marshall and Trei ‘Zer0‘ Morris both announced they were looking for moves elsewhere, after the team wrapped up a three match losing streak in the league.

Call of Duty / TwitchRed Reserve had a tough cross-division split in the Pro League, going 1-3.

CoDBurner claims about Red Reserve

The notorious CoDBurner Reddit account, which is known for leaking insider roster information, previously claimed that Skrapz was being targeted by Team Envy, but that his buyout was extortionate.

However, with Skrapz now stating that his buyout is only $10,000, some are questioning both the legitimacy of the CoDBurner’s information, and whether it means the Envy move is on the cards.

On April 2, the CoDBurner made the surprising claim that Red Reserve were leaving Call of Duty altogether, with the spot potentially going to an amateur team.

Rated responds to CoDBurner claims

Shortly after the posts, Rated made clear that the CoDBurner had some misinformation and called the mysterious figure an ‘idiot’ for spreading the misleading details.

Assuring fans that “the spot isn’t going anywhere”, Rated promised that an amateur team would not be acquiring Red Reserve’s position in the league.

Long time Red Reserve player Rated wasn’t happy with the misinformation being spread.

This suggests that Rated will perhaps retain the spot along with the remaining Red Reserve players, Joseph ‘Joee’ Pinnington and Ben ‘Bance’ Bance, although this is not confirmed.

For now, Red Reserve’s status as a CWL Pro League team, both as an organization and for the players, is uncertain, but fans shouldn’t have to wait long to see how everything falls into place.

Hilarious Black Ops Cold War bug literally breaks Fireteam Dirty Bomb

A game-breaking Black Ops Cold War bug is suspending players above the map on Fireteam Dirty Bomb, rendering them useless for the entire match.

As with any new release, Black Ops Cold War has had its fair share of bugs and glitches. From players falling through the map to a permanent thermal overlay, its obvious Treyarch overlooked a few elements of the game before releasing the title.

However, if a bug is not game-breaking, players will usually laugh it off and let it go. It’s only when a glitch renders players completely useless that a bug starts to become more frustrating than funny.

Well, that’s exactly the type of bug some players are experiencing on Fireteam Dirty Bomb and it’s fair to say they’re not pleased about it.

Fireteam Dirty Bomb is the new mode released with Black Ops Cold War.

Game-breaking bug suspends players above the map

A video posted to the Black Ops Cold War subreddit reveals a game-breaking bug occurring on Fireteam Dirty Bomb. The glitch suspends the players above the map for the entire match with them unable to move or participate.

On top of this, it appears the entire game mode is broken with teams being bigger than they’re are supposed to be and textures not loading in.

As you can see, the players are left floating above the map and are audibly frustrated at the issue. One of them even states: “I’d genuinely be surprised if they even had playtesters for this game.”

It’s worth noting the players can scope down onto the map below but they’re completely locked in place. Attempting to run will trigger the animation but no movement will occur.

Glitches can be entertaining in certain titles, especially when they do not heavily impact the gameplay experience. However, in competitive games like Call of Duty, a game-breaking bug can be extremely frustrating.

Fingers crossed Treyarch get this bug fixed as soon as possible so players don’t have to continue spectating the game from above the map.
