Team Reciprocity’s fate in next season’s Call of Duty franchising appears to be sealed, as several of their pro players have declared free agency.

On August 28, three of Reciprocity’s Call of Duty pros announced that they would be free agents for the inaugural season of franchising, which is set to kick off in the early parts of 2020.

Zach ‘Zed’ Denyer and Dylan Henderson will both be restricted free agents, meaning that REC will have the option of matching any contract offered to them by other organizations.

“Going to be a restricted free agent for the 2020 CDL season,” they both tweeted. “Any franchise team interested, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via DMs or email. Also willing to relocate anywhere and have a valid P1 working visa.”

Alex ‘Alexx’ Carpenter, on the other hand, has confirmed that his free agency will be unrestricted, which would allow him to sign with any interested organizations without REC being able to match their offer to retain him.

Also declaring restricted free agency is Sean ‘Seany’ O’Connor, who started the season in the starting lineup but was moved down to the substitute’s role after Denholm ‘Denz’ Taylor was promoted midseason.

As for Denz and Bradley ‘wuskin’ Marshall, they both have not announced any news regarding their status at this time, but they too will likely be looking for new opportunities.

  • Alex ‘Alexx’ Carpenter
  • Bradley ‘wuskin’ Marshall
  • Denholm ‘Denz’ Taylor
  • Shane ‘ShAnE’ McKerral (coach)

MLGReciprocity’s roster was a lot different at the start of the season, featuring both Seany (middle right) and Tommey (far right).

Reciprocity were one of the better Call of Duty teams during the 2018-19 CWL season, finishing third at CWL Fort Worth, qualifying and placing fourth in the Pro League Playoffs, and securing a top-six spot at CoD Champs.

Shortly after these free agency announcements surfaced, REC CEO and owner Chad Larsson confirmed that the org would not be participated in franchising, at least for the first season.

“Unfortunately, Reciprocity will not be participating in Season 1 of CWL franchising,” he tweeted. “It’s been an awesome year, grateful for the opportunity to have made a mark in the CWL scene.”

This news come despite wuskin going live on stream several weeks ago to confirm that it “would be a miracle if REC don’t get a spot,”  in the new CDL.

How to view your Black Ops Cold War stats on PC, PS5 & Xbox

Call of Duty is enjoyed by some of the most competitive gamers around and, of course, competitors want to analyze their performances. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to view your Black Ops Cold War stats, no matter your system of choice.

If you played Modern Warfare or Warzone, then chances are that you’re already somewhat familiar with checking your CoD statistics. Aside from the in-game client, using the website COD Tracker was a very popular way to check, and compare, your numbers when away from your console or PC.

That remains an option for Black Ops Cold War in 2020 and beyond, but players can also check their stats in-game and on the official Call of Duty app. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but they all help you paint a clearer picture of your performance.

Whether you simply want to track your progress as a player or compare yourself to the game’s best, we’ve broken the two ways, outside of the in-game client, that you can check your Black Ops Cold War statistics.

COD Tracker

COD Tracker gives you an overview of your stats with the options to dive deeper.

COD Tracker’s offering is likely the most thorough option around, as you are able to track a ton of statistics, filter by mode, map, and weapon while comparing yourself to global leaderboards. 

Like Warzone, you can even go back through many of your recent matches to analyze individual performances.

  1. Head to COD Tracker and enter either your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  2. Navigate to the Black Ops Cold War tag
  3. Check out how you stack up against the competition

Call of Duty Companion

The CoD Companion App is a nice alternative for people looking to check numbers on their phone.

The Call of Duty Companion app is a very easy way to access many of your statistics without turning on your PC or console. While it doesn’t have as much data as COD Tracker might give you (and rounds K/D a decimal sooner than Tracker), the UI is very intuitive, with pie charts and line graphs for your numbers and whatnot.

  1. Search “Call of Duty Companion” on your device’s app store or through their website
  2. Download and open
  3. Sign in with your Activision ID or your system’s gamer tag
  4. Navigate to “Player,” then scroll to “Black Ops Cold War” instead of “Modern Warfare” from the drop-down menu

While BOCW’s in-game client may feel somewhat limited in its options for analyzing your performance and place on the leaderboards, these two options each provide a ton of information.

Both provide similar degrees of data with the principal differences coming in their presentation, so it’s really up to you which you prefer to use.
