Former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional player Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek showed off some incredible skill and cleverness during a game of Call of Duty’s new battle royale mode, Blackout.

Shroud was playing alongside Tyler ‘Skadoodle’ Latham and Jeremy ‘anythiNG’ Davis in squad games, when the trio found themselves close to the Docks area of the map.

The Canadian was attempting to use the Grapple Gun to enter a building through one of the upstairs windows, when he came under heavy fire from an enemy squad, who were closing in on their location from the south.

The enemy team began to push towards the Shroud and Skadoodle, who were already missing anythiNG, who unfortunately dropped early on in the match.

As Shroud ran upstairs for cover, the call of “they’re coming up the stairs behind you,” came from both of his teammates. Trapped, and with his weapon selection less than ideal, Shroud cleverly jumped off the side of his building, landing on a fence, before dropping down and taking out two enemies with his SG12 shotgun.

Grzesiek immediately switched to his Rampart 17 assault rifle, eliminating the third with a devastatingly accurate headshot, then killing the final enemy who was rushing back down the stairs to confront him.

Shroud celebrated his unbelievable play with a cry of “They’re all dead,” then briefly smiling into his camera, clearly showing how happy he was to have clutched up and wiped out a whole team.

Shroud is one of the greatest FPS shooters in the world, and this incredible clip proves that he is incredibly talented. Of course, even the best make mistakes sometimes, as Grzesiek showed recently when he somehow ran himself over with his own ATV in Blackout.

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 locations in Warzone

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.
