The Call of Duty roster change period between CWL Seattle and Stage Two of the CWL Pro League could be the wildest one yet.

If you’re not sitting comfortably, we suggest you sit down and brace yourself for the latest twist in a very complicated transfer period that involves plenty of moving parts.

Following Activision creating the CoD World League, major organizations began to pay more interest in the competitive Call of Duty scene, and alongside roster locks for tournaments such as the Pro League, contractual obligations also followed suit.

This new way of doing business came as something of a culture shock to players who had previously been allowed to roam freely among teams, but following the lead of traditional sports, buyouts and trades have become common practice.

The current OpTic Gaming Call of Duty team has been together for over three years after forming during the Advanced Warfare season, however, they’re not the dominant force they once were.

Having failed to win a single event during the WWII season, and only reaching the grand final once, following a top 16 placement at CWL Seattle a rumor began that the team would be splitting.

At the time of writing there has been no official confirmation, but reputable sources close to Dexerto have revealed the current situation features a twist that no one expected.

It’s believed that when Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni was sold to Team Kaliber from Rise Nation for an undisclosed fee, there was a timeframe given to tK in order to make the payment. Due to tK failing to pay on time, Rise Nation are now attempting to sell Methodz’ contract to OpTic Gaming.

DexertoAnthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni could be the key to rostermania.

OpTic, who are believed to be keeping Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter from their former team, will use Methodz in a trade to acquire the services of Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto from FaZe Clan. This entire exchange will then lead to the final trade of Matt ‘FormaL’ Piper to Luminosity for Sam ‘Octane’ Larew.

It’s worth noting that this trade could fall through due to the large number of moving parts required in order to make it work. Our source didn’t have any indication either as to where Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow would end up, or who would replace Methodz in the Team Kaliber lineup should a deal be struck.

OpTic Gaming (Rumored)

  • Seth ‘Scump’ Abner
  • Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter
  • Sam ‘Octane’ Larew
  • Tommy ‘ZooMaa’ Paparatto

FaZe Clan (Rumored)

  • Dillon ‘Attach’ Price
  • Chris ‘Replays’ Crowder
  • Preston ‘Priestahh’ Greiner
  • Anthony ‘Methodz’ Zinni

Luminosity Gaming (Rumored)

  • Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan
  • John ‘John’ Perez
  • Josiah ‘Slacked’ Berry
  • Matt ‘FormaL’ Piper

Insane Warzone exploit somehow makes Juggernauts even more powerful

As though Juggernauts weren’t already enough of a problem in Warzone, a ridiculous new bug gives them a wild advantage that could outright ruin any given match.

It’s no secret that Juggernauts have been an issue for quite some time in Warzone. Every time you get an alert that one has appeared in your lobby, you know it’s going to be an uphill battle. The near-impenetrable suits of armor take some hefty killstreaks to deal with, regular guns will rarely do the job.

They can beam you down from afar with their minigun and it’s an almost guaranteed win unless strangers team-up. Despite weeks of dealing with their extreme power, Juggernaut’s have barely been addressed. While they’ve been removed as loot inside of vaults, they’re still fairly common.

These devastating suits of armor were already enough of a challenge. However, a new bug is making them even stronger. You’re going to want to look out for this insane exploit until a new patch is deployed.

Juggernaut’s might already haunt your games but this exploit makes them even more of an issue.

Juggernaut’s will already have you on your toes if one appears in your lobby. Though now you’ll have even more of a reason to be cautious. If you hear the warning that a firesale event is about to kick off, you’re about to have a real problem on your hands.

This random-chance event has paved the way for an absurd Juggernaut exploit. Items in the Buy Station are cheaper than ever, though one goodie is often free for each player as well. If you’re in a suit of armor, it turns out that one free goodie can be redeemed an unlimited number of times.

In one example, Reddit user ‘TarleenG’ was able to secure well over a dozen self-revive kits in the blink of an eye. While only one can be used at a time, this obviously creates an unbalanced state of affairs. 

If Juggernauts can provide their full squad with self-rez, it saves funds for other powerful items. Not only that, but additional copies of the item will drop on the ground. Meaning you can always return to the Buy Station later to have an endless supply of free lives.

The only plus side to this exploit is that it’s quite rare. To have a Juggernaut suit and then get a firesale event requires some crazy luck. Though it’s clearly possible and will clearly be frustrating when it happens.

Treyarch is yet to respond to this particular issue. We’ll be sure to keep you updated when a fix comes through. Perhaps in the next major update as Black Ops Cold War’s arsenal transitions into Warzone on December 10.
