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.

  • Dylan ‘Dylan’ Henderson
  • 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.

A new pistol, the .50 GS, is now available in CoD Mobile – and you don’t have to go through a lucky draw for one. No, you can get it for free through a series of challenges. 

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, the developers of the popular mobile game have flooded it with new content. Be it a new map, a new event, character, perk, or weapon, there has been plenty for fans to get their teeth stuck into.

Sometimes though, in the case of weapons especially, some of this new content is locked behind lucky draws – so you’ve got to pony up some cash if you really want something. 

In the case of the new .50 GS pistol, which is pretty much just the Desert Eagle, the lucky draw isn’t something you need to worry about. Instead, you just need to complete a series of challenges.

The Going Dark theme is new for CoD Mobile Season 12.

CoD Mobile .50 GS handgun Small Arms challenges

There are seven challenges you need to complete come from the Small Arms seasonal event to get the new handgun, each getting slightly more challenging than the last. 

For example, you kick off with needing to get five melee kills, before progressing to normal pistol kills. In the end, you’ll also need 20 headshots with pistols, which isn’t an easy feat for any player, but its not impossible.

The full list of challenges can be found below: 

  1. Kill 5 enemies with Melee Attacks.
  2. Kill 10 enemies with Pistols in MP matches.
  3. Kill 10 Enemies with Quick Fix perk equipped.
  4. Kill 20 Enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any laser.
  5. Kill 20 enemies with J358 in MP matches equipped with any 3 attachments.
  6. Earn Back Stabber Medal 3 times.
  7. Kill 20 Enemies with Headshots using any Pistol.

However, you shouldn’t get any ideas about completing the challenges in any random order. 

They need to be done in the order they’re set. This is a bit of a pain, but, at least it gives you something to target in each match.
