North American esports organization have announced Daniel ‘Loony’ Loza as the newest member of their Call of Duty team , who has promptly revealed the rest of the roster ahead of schedule.

Loony has officially joined Splyce on October 3, and is the third active player on their roster, which also features Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley and Lamar ‘Accuracy’ Abedi.

The move was announced via a post on Splyce’s official Twitter page, which also hinted at the remaining two players being revealed in a new episode of the org’s ‘Splyce Assembly’ show on October 4.

Loony also tweeted a long post about his move to Splyce after spending the last three years with Rise Nation. 

However, in the post, he accidentally revealed that Echo Fox players Ulysses ‘Aqua’ Silva and Donovan ‘Temp’ Laroda would also be joining Splyce. The tweet was deleted almost immediately, but not before the following screenshot was captured. 


During his three year stint with Rise, Loony was an ever-presence on the team and was given captaincy at the start of the Infinite Warfare season. 

However, the WWII season was his most successful to day, having placed first at the CWL events in Atlanta, Seattle, and Anaheim, and coming in second to Team Kaliber at the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.

Now, with Loony gone, that stellar Rise Nation roster has been all but decimated, with TJHaLy and SlasheR having also moved on to OpTic Gaming and 100 Thieves respectively. 

With their last remaining player Gunless also slated to leave, the future of the org in Call of Duty esports remains highly uncertain.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals Warzone cosmetics for Nuke event

New Black Ops Cold War leaks have pointed towards Warzone rewards for the impending nuke event that looks likely to bring a new map to Call of Duty’s battle royale mode. 

When the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare year was coming to a close, many wondered what would happen to Warzone. Would it make the move over to Black Ops Cold War or remain a separate entity?

Well, in that time, there’s been plenty of speculation about a new map and a move to the Cold War engine – especially as the Nuke, which appeared in Verdansk during the reveal event for the new game, still hasn’t been launched. 

However, it looks like the weapon of mass destruction could soon be set to lift off and kickstart Warzone’s integration with Cold War after some new cosmetics surfaced.

Warzone hasnt made the move to Cold War just yet, but it appears as if its coming soon.

Call of Duty leaker WarzoneNewz posted an image of an emblem where a Nuke can be seen blasting off around the Soviet flag – making it look like a Sickle. 

Additionally, there is a calling card for Alcatraz, or at least a map based on Alcatraz anyway – with Russian propaganda billboards being used on the main building in the centre of the image. 

The long-standing theory, since the Nuke arrived on Verdansk, has been that it will blast off and destroy Verdansk, giving way for some sort of rebirthed version of Alcatraz, given Treyarch used the small, prison map back in Blackout – the first attempt at Call of Duty Battle Royale. However, nothing has been confirmed. 

During the Cold War reveal event, where players were tasked with running around Verdansk and completing certain tasks, unique emblems and calling cards were released. So, it would make sense that they’d want to commemorate another live event with rewards for players who are there.

However, we’ll just have to wait and see what Treyarch decides to do, as there’s been no confirmation, just yet, about whether there will be another map or if it’s just going to be an extension of Verdansk.
