OpTic Gaming failed to make the top four yet again at a major open tournament in the CoD: WWII season, after losing 3-1 to a UNILAD team that many had written off ahead of CWL Anaheim.

After Matthew “Skrapz” Marshall left UNILAD, many thought they had lost a player too valuable to replace, but the team has certainly proven their doubters wrong as they secure top four at CWL Anaheim.

OpTic Gaming are improved from their last open event performance at CWL Seattle, back when Matthew “FormaL” Piper and Damon “Karma” Barlow were on the squad, but it wasn’t enough in the end.

New players Anthony “Methodz” Zinni and Sam “Octane” Larew did impress in some series and maps, but when it came to important matches against Luminosity, they didn’t play their best.

They began well in the losers bracket, taking out eUnited and Tainted Minds in dominant fashion, but UNILAD proved to be a different challenge all together.

OG did take the opening map 250-203, but UNILAD remained unfazed, bouncing back immediately on Search and Destroy and CTF to open up a 2-1 lead.

Map four on Valkyrie hardpoint was neck and neck till the very end, as OpTic mounted a comeback after being down over 100 points, eventually pulling it back to tie at around 200 points each.

And insane final few moments saw OpTic force the game five.

The game five SnD was suitably intense also, as UNILAD opened up a quick 2-0 lead thanks to this slick 1v3 from Sean “Seany” O’Connor.

Methodz hit right back however, with his own slick three piece, and the teams were tied up at 3-3 with it all on the line.

Activision has officially unveiled all the details about the Haunting of Verdansk event coming to Call of Duty: Warzone, and it’s going to be packed with spooky content. To celebrate, Lionsgate is offering special Texas Chainsaw Massacre-themed content for the game, and we’ve got the details on how to unlock them.

After being leaked around a week ago, Activision has finally unveiled its Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre crossovers in Warzone. Players will soon be able to purchase bundles based on the two horror franchises in the in-game store for around $20, and they both come with the usual suspects: ew Operators skins, weapon blueprints, emotes, etc.

Players will also be able to get their hands on a couple of items themed around the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise without having to put down any cash or COD points at all if they follow some simple steps.

How to unlock the Texas Chainsaw Massacre emblem & calling card?

Unlocking these items is simple – you don’t have to do anything within the actual Modern Warfare or Warzone application to earn them. Instead, just get on their computer or mobile device, go to the film franchise’s main website and follow some easy steps in order to get a free emblem and calling card:

If players want to get their hands on Texas Chainsaw Massacre-themed items, they’ll have to follow the steps below.

After that point, Activision will send you a code for the emblem and calling card within two weeks. It is interesting to note, however, that the fine print on the website says it’ll be available in-game after November 9, 2020, which would technically be three weeks from the announcement, so it’s unknown what the case actually is.

We also don’t technically have a peek at either the calling card or emblem, so it’s anyone’s best guess as to what it actually looks like in-game. More than likely, it’ll be similar to the image seen on the site – but that’s pure speculation at this point.

We’ll update this article with more details and images when they become available.
