Splyce’s Ben ‘Bance’ Bance experienced one of the strangest bullet registration issues you will ever see while playing Team Envy in the CWL Pro League.

Splyce’s Call of Duty team had a difficult start to Season 2 of the CWL Pro League, finishing the first week with a record of 1-3 after losing some nail-biting matches.

However, they had only secured the services of Joshua-Lee ‘Joshh’ Sheppard in early May and showed a number of signs that week two could be different as they continue to improve on their team cohesion.

Their first challenge of the week came in the form of Team Envy on May 22nd. Envy had a strong first week but Splyce came out swinging in the Hardpoint to take a 1-0 series lead.

However, the second map, Valkyrie Search and Destroy, went to Team Envy with a 6-5 score which brought the teams level going into the Capture The Flag.

This likely wouldn’t have been the case if not for Bance losing a 1 vs. 1 in round six when he seemingly had Jacob “Decemate” Cato dead to rights but his bullets quite literally seemed to disappear.

Even the commentators were confused by the exchange, suggesting that some sort of weapon sway or flinch may have been the issue.

Luckily for Splyce, they were able to put the frustrating Search and Destroy behind them and take the final two maps to take a 3-1 series win and prove that they are still a team to fear heading into the rest of Stage 2.

The European team’s next match will be against the Season 1 Champions, FaZe Clan, on Wednesday, May 23rd.

Warzone player discovers perfect way to counter Airport tower campers

A Warzone player has found the perfect way to counter campers in the Verdansk Airport tower, and it might be the best way to bait those annoying players out and get across the runway.

If you’ve played Warzone even once, you’ll know exactly which tower we mean: the one north of Airport that has only one way up, from which players can easily camp, scout out enemies and lay fire upon those trying to rotate to zone.

Even with the inclusion of external ziplines to many tall buildings in Verdansk, the tower still doesn’t have one, meaning that once players are up there, it’s incredibly difficult to get them down.

Typically, you’ll struggle in a straight gunfight against these players — so what you need to do is bait them out, instead, and capitalize when they’re distracted.

Tower campers are among some of the most annoying players in Warzone.

As showcased below by NadxCH, a helicopter could be your key to infiltrating the tower — though not how you might think.

While many people will have tried to attack head-on while in a helicopter, the plan instantly falls flat if the tower campers have a rocket launcher or explosives of some sort, that will see you and your team come crashing down instantly.

Instead, you need to assign a teammate to fly past in the helicopter after landing up top, and strike while the iron is hot. While the designated driver flies the heli in one direction, you’ll need to jump off the top and plan your parachute perfectly to land in the control room while the opponents have their back turned and are distracted.

Obviously, this will often be easier said than done. Jumping off the top of the tower and timing everything right to land in the control room is a skill you’ll have to practice over and over again to get right, so you’ll have to be confident you can pull it off first.

Secondly, you’ll have to rely on the enemy team being distracted by the helicopter. They likely will be, and will want to take it down while it’s so close, which is why it’s the perfect opportunity to strike.

Otherwise, you might find yourself trapped while trying to traverse the map — and there are few worse types of players to die to than those in Airport tower.
