The Call of Duty World League transfer window is in its final hours and two teams in Reciprocity and Heretics have made some last minute changes to bolster their roster for the last push in the season.

The Pro League Finals are itching their way closer, and teams are loading up by making some tough decisions before heading into the latter portion of the CWL circuit.

There’s already been major transfer moves that have seen young star players on loan to competing orgs while big teams have put emerging talents with previous World Champs.

Team ReciprocityAlexx will hopefully be the piece Reciprocity need to improve their standing in the CWL.

Reciprocity made multiple moves

Now a formidable Reciprocity side have moved Sean ‘Seany’ O’Connor to the substitute position as they add former Denial-turned-Units player Alex ‘Alexx’ Carpenter to the active roster. The change will also have Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren moving from the sub position to a streamer role with hopes of his competitive return being at CWL Miami through the Open Bracket.

The team has shown flashes of brilliance throughout the Pro League season but haven’t been able to get above .500 in season. The addition of Alexx could be what the team has been needing to push them up further in the standings before the seasons close.

The complete roster now consists of Bradley ‘wuskin’ Marshall, Zach ‘Zed’ Denyer, Denholm ‘Denz’ Taylor, Dylan ‘Dylan’ Henderson and Alexx.

Alexx will hit the ground running as he and his new team will be up against eUnited in Week 12 of the CWL Pro League season as well as Team Envy immediately after.

Team HereticsWartex is joining Heretics for the next iteration of their lineup.

Heretics adding a new piece to their puzzle

Fans of Team Heretics meanwhile will have to trust in their organization as the Spanish team have replaced Endika ‘Sukry’ Andres with Ronaldo ‘Wartex’ Lavado.

So far the move has been met with mixed emotions, but the 10-8 squad haven’t had the best outings as of late which might have fueled management to change up the roster.

All the vamos in the league will now be supporting a Heretics roster composed of Alejandro ‘Lucky’ López, Juan ‘JurNii’ Antonio González, Jorge ‘MethodZ’ Bancells, Adrian ‘MeTTalZ’ Serrano and Wartex.

MLGHeretics have been an impressive team to watch, and Wartex will hopefully add to that trend for the rest of the CWL.

Heretics are on course against OpTic Gaming and Midnight, which will be a great gauge to see how they fare against the tougher teams in the league.

These teams are hoping the trade deadline moves will give them a better chance of having strong showings as the CWL season winds down.

Now that the Pawn Takes Pawn easter egg hunt is finally over, which connected both Warzone and the upcoming Black Ops Cold War, fans have now been rewarded with in-game items for both games and Call of Duty: Mobile. Here’s how you get your hands on them.

After months of solving easter eggs both online and in Warzone, the Pawn Takes Pawn campaign has finally come to end and while most people thought that the hunt itself was fun, the final reveal of a simple video was a bit less ideal than some were hoping for, to say the least.

That being said, it’s not all bad. As a reward for the community completing the easter egg, Activision is giving all players some sweet rewards for Black Ops Cold War, Warzone/Modern Warfare, and even Call of Duty: Mobile. Getting your hands on them isn’t too tricky but there are a couple steps you have to follow.

Activision has revealed that Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, and Mobile players can unlock special Pawn Takes Pawn items.

Black Ops Cold War, Warzone, and Mobile Pawn Takes Pawn rewards

Players are able to get a slew of rewards for three separate games. While you definitely get more for Modern Warfare/Warzone, the fact that Treyarch is already giving out rewards for Black Ops Cold War before its official release is cool to see. Even giving some love to Mobile is a nice gesture.

  • Black Ops Cold War
    • Knight chess piece weapon charm
    • “Family Portait” calling card
  • Modern Warfare/Warzone
    • Ak-47 weapon blueprint
    • Helicopter skin
    • Pawn chess piece weapon charm
    • 5 emblems
    • 5 calling cards
    • 5 sprays
  • Mobile
    • By15 weapon skin
    • Calling card
    • Avatar
    • Spray
    • Frame

All in all, it’s a ton of content and it’s nice to see Activision giving some love to all games, rather than just one.

Pawn Takes Pawn content instructions

Getting access to all three of these content packs is relatively simple, however, there’s still a few steps that you have to go through. Before you start, you’ll want to make sure that you have an Activision account and that it’s linked to either your PlayStation, Xbox, or Battle.net accounts.

  1. Go to pawntakespawn.com/colorbound and either sign-in to your Pawn Takes Pawn account or make one if you haven’t already.
  2. Type in “1PIECES9IN8PLAY1” in the box that shows up titled Flying Colors.
  3. Watch the video.
  4. After you fully watch the video, you should see an achievement pop up in the top right hand corner allowing you to “redeem rewards”. Click that link and you’ll see a list of codes.
  5. In a separate tab/window, go to callofduty.com/redeem and sign-in to your Activision account.
  6. Input the codes one by one once the box pops up.

It’s worth noting that there’s a small bug associated with the codes. Sometimes, after you watch the video, the achievement won’t pop up. To solve this, re-input the code on the “colorbound” website and watch the video again. It should pop up after that point.

After you complete all the steps, you should see your rewards show up in-game the next time you boot it up.
