Rise Nation’s Slasher Can’t Wait to Return to a Faster Role

With the final week of the Call of Duty: WWII season upon us, Rise Nation’s Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat has expressed his excitement at taking on a faster-paced role next year.

As the main assault rifle player for his current and previous squads, he is generally responsible for holding down the spawn points for his teammates and winning long-range engagements.

While the advanced movement games allowed AR players to move around and be more aggressive, the return to boots on the ground and a slower-paced game has meant players like SlasheR have also had to adapt their play-style to match.

Although this may have suited some, it looks like this isn’t SlasheR’s preferred way of playing. But with Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII on its way in October promising to have a faster pace, there’s just one more event standing between him and a more active role.


If SlasheR has been unhappy with his current responsibilities though, it hasn’t come across in-game, with the 2016 World Champion having won both CWL Seattle and CWL Anaheim under Rise, as well as placing second at the CWL Stage Two Playoffs.

He’s already shown this year why he’s among the best AR players in the world, frequently devastating his opponents. But with the return to a Black Ops title and a more comfortable “do it all AR” role, could 2019 be his most dominant performance yet?

While SlasheR is looking forward to next year and a bit of a role change, fans of Rise Nation don’t need to worry, as he’s fully prepared and dedicated to the WWII CWL Championship from August 15 to 19.

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

Leatherface’s house location in Warzone

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
