The founder of CoD Comp Stats released a list of the top 5 respawn slayers for the Call of Duty: WWII competitive season.

There are familiar names on the list, but the number one place might surprise you.

The interesting list started when JPKrez tweeted that Pierce ‘Gunless’ Hilman led all players in kills this season, racking up over 6,000.

CoD pro Patrick ‘ACHES’ Price pointed out that Gunless also played the most maps and would be interested in the numbers by map average instead of total.

When JPkrez sorted the numbers as ACHES wanted, by showing respawn kills per 10 minutes, Gunless was no longer the top player.

Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell came out on top with a rating of 25.1 kills per 10 minutes.

Dashy and his compLexity team struggled in Stage 2 of the CWL Pro League, but may have outperformed the low expectations that were set for them.

Thanks to Dashy’s play, coL finished Stage 2 at 6-8, good enough for a tie with Luminosity for 5th place.

Unfortunately for Dashy, he is the only player in the top 5 of respawn kills to not win a major this season. ZooMaa took home the Stage 1 Playoffs with FaZe Clan, John won CWL Birmingham with Luminosity, SlasheR won CWL Anaheim and CWL Seattle with Rise Nation and Kenny is the most decorated of the bunch – winning CWL Dallas, CWL New Orleans and the Stage 2 Playoffs for Team Kaliber.

Dashy and compLexity will have one final chance to win a WWII major at the 2018 Call of Duty Championships, which begin on August 15.

coL is in Group E with second place slayer ZooMaa and FaZe Clan. Dashy’s former team E6 is also in Group E, along with Morituri.

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
