Splyce’s Call of Duty Roster Reduced to One Player as Bance Announces Free Agency

Ben ‘Bance’ Bance has announced that he is now a restricted free agent heading into the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 season.

The Brit has been representing Splyce since December of 2015 but he took to Twitter on August 31 to say that he is now “exploring every option possible for next year”.

However, the relationship between the player and organization isn’t completely over, as Bance reveals he is still under contract for the time being.


It is currently unknown whether Bance requested to leave the team or whether Splyce decided to end their long-time association with the man that helped them win the 2017 CWL Pro League Stage 1 finals.

The move means that Jordan ‘Jurd’ Crowley is now the only remaining player from Splyce’s Call of Duty: WWII roster. The Irishman stated that he was “looking to build something going into the next game” just days ago and also made it clear that he was open to playing with people from all regions.


While this might have suggested that he was also considering leaving the team, there is a theory that he could be building an international roster under the Splyce banner.

Splyce’s CEO and co-founder, Marty ‘Lazerchicken’ Strenczewilk made some bold claims on August 29, saying that the organization was going to “build the best team IN THE WORLD” for Black Ops 4, promising incredible infrastructure, and saying “If you’re a top player, you’re on the radar of Splyce, regardless of region.”

It has often been noted that Jurd would be willing to make a move to North America and the fact that Splyce have parted ways with three of their European stars could be a sign that they are considering a move across the Atlantic.

Black Ops Cold War weapons & perks changes revealed for Zombies

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
