Even though Black Ops 4 has only been out for less than a month, players are already starting to set some incredible records in the game’s battle royale mode, Blackout.

As everyone continues grinding Blackout, the skill level is getting higher and higher on a daily basis, even amidst many of the widespread changes Treyarch has introduced to the game.

Rogue’s Jordan ‘HusKers’ Thomas is seemingly leading the pack, as he set the world record for most kills in a solo match on November 8. Twice.

His first attempt came in the afternoon hours of the day when he put up a ridiculous 26 kills in a single match.

Even as he secures the 26th kill, though, HusKers laments the fact that he wasn’t more aggressive during the match.

“I should have played more aggressive,” HusKers tells his chat. “I could have gotten like 27 or 28 [kills].”

It turns out that HusKers was completely correct as he managed to one-up himself just two hours later with another monster game to break the record he had just set.

His world-record setting win was even more exciting than his earlier one as he managed to seek out camper inside of a gas station bathroom before hopping on an ATV to pick up the final kill.

HusKers is no stranger to setting world records, as his organization pointed out that he’s been doing this since the beta with multiple records under his belt.

Having been playing battle royales since the days of H1Z1, it’s no surprise that HusKers was able to accomplish this incredible feat.

With a very high bar now set, you can bet that plenty of people will start gunning for HusKers spot at the top.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
