Superstar Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek put his out-of-this-world FPS skills to the test in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta, yet again proving himself as the “human aimbot.”

September 19 marked the first day that the Modern Warfare Open Beta was made available on PC, in order to test out the cross-platform ability that will be enabled for the first time in Call of Duty history.

Former CS:GO pro and FPS legend shroud could not miss the opportunity to flex his gaming muscles in the Beta, and he’s already put together some clips worth of a highlight reel.

What may be his best sequence so far came during a Headquarters match on Gun Runner, with him using a default class no less.

Armed with the powerful FR 5.56 burst assault rifle, he mowed through a squadron of five enemy players in quick succession, or as he put it – “just slapped those guys” – hardly missing a shot in the process. 

Another impressive display of marksmanship came while playing Cyber Attack on Hackney Yard, where he wiped out another group of five enemy players.

While there’s no doubt that his clever positioning played a big role in this killing spree, his ability to hardly lead any of his shots astray was really what made the difference.

Shroud seemed to be enjoying Cyber Attack, because his next incredible play came on that very same mode, this time on the gigantic map called Grazna Raid.

This clip may have been dedicated to those who thought that the CSGO legend could only pull off killing streaks from a perched position, as he used a sniper rifle to perfection while essentially “running and gunning” the whole time. 

This last clip, from a Domination map also on Grazna Raid, may not really be considered a “killing spree,” but is still an impressive collateral snipe nonetheless.

Position on a staircase located on the side of a building towards the corner of the map, shroud predicted the enemy movements expertly, and got rewarded with a nice and tidy double kill. 

Considering that all of these highlight plays, and more, came in only the first few hours of the first day of the Modern Warfare Beta, shroud may be able to produce a whole montage by the time the weekend is over.

Call of Duty fans will hope that the superstar enjoys his experience during the trial phase of the game, so that he could really start dominating once it fully releases on October 25.

The Modern Warfare Beta is now available on the Xbox One and PC to all those who have early access via pre-orders, as well as open to all players on the PlayStation 4.

The Beta will become fully available to everyone on September 21, and will conclude on September 23 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.

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.
