Slasher makes a Depressing Tweet Following Rise Nation’s Exit from CWL Champs

Rise Nation was eliminated from CWL Champs earlier than anyone expected and the players are not taking it well.

Slasher tweeted about his struggles following Rise Nation’s top 16 finish.

The tweet was deleted by Slasher, but reddit user woodlands- managed to get a screengrab while it was still up.

Thought it couldn’t possibly get any worse… yet here I am lower than I’ve even been. Probably won’t be active on here or anything gaming related for a long time. The actual worst day of my life 8/17/2018

Slasher tweeted at 9:45 PM, shortly after Rise were eliminated in heartbreaking fashion by Luminosity.

Rise Nation entered CWL Champs as one of the favorites, having won three majors this season. They looked the part in pool play, finishing with an undefeated record.

They were unlikely to draw Team Kaliber in Winners Round 1 and were defeated in four.

It would not get easier in the Losers bracket and Rise were eliminated by Luminosity for a top 16 finish.

Slasher is not used to going home from Champs so early, having won the Black Ops 3 Championships and finishing second in Infinite Warfare.

He will now have to set his sights towards Black Ops 4, where his BO3 success may transfer over.

Warzone dev reveals fix for missing Trick or Treat rewards bug

One of Warzone’s lead developers has responded to the frustrating Trick or Treat rewards bug during the Haunting of Verdansk event, with players not getting the Pumpkin Punisher Grau blueprint after completing all the challenges.

The Haunting of Verdansk is the special Halloween event in Warzone, with lots of new content for players to sink their teeth into.

This includes new Operator packs, including skins from horror films Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as the new Zombie Royale game mode and, of course, the Trick or Treat Rewards.

By searching chests in 16 different locations, players can earn all manner of items from calling cards and emblems to the awesome Cleaver melee blueprint. As a result of unlocking all 16, you’re supposed to get the Grau blueprint weapon, Pumpkin Punisher — but for some people, this isn’t happening.

The Pumpkin Punisher gives a spooky spin on a previous Warzone favorite weapon, the Grau 5.56.

A number of players have reported that even after completing all 16 Trick or Treat challenges and unlocking all the rewards, the Pumpkin Punisher remains locked and isn’t added to their Armory.

One player reported the issue to Joe Cecot, the Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at developer Infinity Ward, and he suggested that the likely issue is the UI thinks players have everything, but they’re actually missing one of the rewards.

To fix this, Cecot offered a workaround, though it might not be particularly fun: he advises players to hit all the locations again and the gun will likely be unlocked, to make sure the game properly registers the completion of every single challenge. He also says that it’s “most likely the location that is still not registered will give candy out of the box.”

Of course, this will be slightly frustrating for players who have not yet unlocked the Pumpkin Punisher, despite having completed all of the relevant tasks.

Cecot did add that in the long run, they’ll “most likely fix people in this state,” though it’s unclear when that could happen, or even if at all.
