Professional Call of Duty player Trei “Zer0” Morris is now one of the most recognized players globally, and in the most recent episode of ‘Behind the Controller’ details his rise to the top.

Zer0 has been one of the top European players for a number of years, but he is relatively new on the scene compared to some of his contemporaries.

Breaking out in the Advanced Warfare season, Zer0 has been a consistent top player both in Europe and internationally, and was part of the first EU roster to win a major tournament on North American soil at the Global Pro League Stage One Playoffs in 2017.

His current Red Reserve team, featuring Rhys “Rated” Price, Joseph “Joee” Pinnington and Matthew “Skrapz” Marshall are considered the top EU team, and perhaps the 2nd best overall roster behind the dominant Rise Nation squad.

And like many fans and players of competitive Call of Duty, former player and now 100 Thieves owner Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag played a big part in getting Zer0 into the competitive side of the game.

“I had like 50 days played on every single CoD up until Black Ops 2. I went on Twitter one day and the Call of Duty World Championships was on, I can’t remember how old I was, I must have been like 14, and I was gassed to watch it.

And then I started watching Nadeshot, and just kept following and following.”

Zer0 also explains what he would like to do after he retires from competing, saying that he will look to keep his connections to MLG, the developers and Activision, perhaps even moving into game design.

“I hope to build up a relationship with either MLG or Activision, or Treyarch or anyone that makes the games.

Help on the esport side of things, or actually help design the game because I feel I actually have quite a good idea how to design a map or something like that. Especially for how esports is right now, it’s been on the rise, but now it’s just blowing up completely.

I feel I could help out a lot in that region, if it carries on the way it is. I’d make the best map ever, just give me five minutes and I’d make one.”

From Blueprints to weapon charms and plenty more, Warzone’s new Haunting of Verdansk event has dropped 16 unique items across the map. Here’s everything you need to know to claim them all.

Verdansk has been well and truly taken over in the new Halloween-themed event. Horror film icons are available to unlock in new bundles, a spooky nighttime version of the battle royale has been deployed, and there’s even a new Zombie Royale Limited-Time Mode (LTM)

Activision has clearly gone all out with this haunting takeover, but there’s still more to it than meets the eye. On top of everything outlined in the new roadmap, Warzone also comes boasting a ton of free items in the new event. Just for exploring the map, 16 unique unlocks can be yours.

There’s a special treat waiting for you at the very end as well. From an overview of each reward to where they can all be found, we’ve got you covered with a complete rundown.

How Trick or Treat works in Warzone


From October 20 through November 3, there will be plenty of fresh content for Warzone players to sink their teeth into. Featured throughout the event is a new trick or treat system full of goodies and surprises. 

Boxes are scattered around Verdansk for you to find. Some might contain rare weapon Blueprints, though others could come with a “terrifying fright.” There’s no guarantee that you’ll get a reward from every box you open, but they’re well worth your time.

There’s no need to worry about these boxes ruining your run either. You’ll get a fright, but the ‘trick’ part of this trick or treat gimmick deals “no damage,” Activision confirmed

Upon claiming all 16 rewards on offer, a Legendary Assault Rifle Blueprint will be all yours. The boxes are spread out far and wide so be sure to use our guide below to hunt them all down.

Trick or Treat boxes can be found all across Verdansk

Just like regular Supply Boxes in Warzone, these special crates are randomized. There’s no guarantee that one will be waiting for you at every single location in a single match. It might take some time across a good number of games over the next few weeks of the event.

There are five sections of the map that have a chance to contain Trick or Treat boxes, with two to four points of interest at each. You’ll need to claim rewards at each area over time as some are exclusive to certain points of the map. In other words, you can’t drop into the same location over and over expecting to find unique rewards each time.

Once you’ve claimed the rewards from a specific part of the map, a checkmark will appear in-game. Use this as you advance from one location to another, just to make sure you’re crossing every section off the list.  A full rundown of every possible location can be found below.
