Christopher ‘Parasite’ Duarte was incensed when he discovered that his teammate, John ‘Xotic’ Bruno, was leaving the team at the last minute, and he wasn’t afraid to let the world know.

After hearing that Xotic was joining Evil Geniuses, and that his team would be losing a pool play spot as a result, Parasite stated: “Xotic sketched for EG and gave away our pool play spot to a team we are better than lmfao. He didn’t even tell us until just now and he knew for days. Scum.”

When Xotic tried to explain his side of the story, Parasite responded with a line that became an instant Call of Duty trash talk classic, saying: “Pipe down. You’re worthless. You’re not a friend of mine and I honestly hope the rest of your career is plagued with failure. You will never be a champion. You are a coward.”

Evil Geniuses have now confirmed the move and their rivalry with Parasite’s team is already expected to be one of the best heading into CWL Las Vegas in December, but Xotic’s response to all of the drama might come as a surprise.

Parasite represented Evil Geniuses for the last three events of the Infinite Warfare season in 2017.

100 Thieves’ owner, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, already turning Parasite’s roast into a ‘copypasta’, used it in a lighthearted response to one of his players, Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat, and Xotic was the first to admit that it’s one of the best roasts CoD has ever seen.

“This gotta be the best thing that’s ever been said in cod history,” the Canadian player said in response to Nadeshot on Twitter:

Xotic doubled down on those statements when his response made its way to Reddit, saying that he finds it funny and conceding that he understands Parasite’s frustrations.

“It is funny. I know why he’s mad and he has all the right too. I didn’t want it to happen this way,” he said, continuing to make it clear that he regrets the timing of the move and the way it occured.

Parasite, Adam ‘GodRx’ Brown, Casey ‘Pandur’ Romano and Dylan ‘Theory’ McGee played scrims with Andres ‘Lacefield’ Lacefield on November 16.

Given the fact that Lacefield was the player that Xotic replaced on Evil Geniuses, the direct swap would make a lot of sense for Parasite and company.

From Blueprints to weapon charms and plenty more, Warzone’s new Haunting of Verdansk event has dropped 16 unique items across the map. Here’s everything you need to know to claim them all.

Verdansk has been well and truly taken over in the new Halloween-themed event. Horror film icons are available to unlock in new bundles, a spooky nighttime version of the battle royale has been deployed, and there’s even a new Zombie Royale Limited-Time Mode (LTM)

Activision has clearly gone all out with this haunting takeover, but there’s still more to it than meets the eye. On top of everything outlined in the new roadmap, Warzone also comes boasting a ton of free items in the new event. Just for exploring the map, 16 unique unlocks can be yours.

There’s a special treat waiting for you at the very end as well. From an overview of each reward to where they can all be found, we’ve got you covered with a complete rundown.

How Trick or Treat works in Warzone


From October 20 through November 3, there will be plenty of fresh content for Warzone players to sink their teeth into. Featured throughout the event is a new trick or treat system full of goodies and surprises. 

Boxes are scattered around Verdansk for you to find. Some might contain rare weapon Blueprints, though others could come with a “terrifying fright.” There’s no guarantee that you’ll get a reward from every box you open, but they’re well worth your time.

There’s no need to worry about these boxes ruining your run either. You’ll get a fright, but the ‘trick’ part of this trick or treat gimmick deals “no damage,” Activision confirmed

Upon claiming all 16 rewards on offer, a Legendary Assault Rifle Blueprint will be all yours. The boxes are spread out far and wide so be sure to use our guide below to hunt them all down.

Trick or Treat boxes can be found all across Verdansk

Just like regular Supply Boxes in Warzone, these special crates are randomized. There’s no guarantee that one will be waiting for you at every single location in a single match. It might take some time across a good number of games over the next few weeks of the event.

There are five sections of the map that have a chance to contain Trick or Treat boxes, with two to four points of interest at each. You’ll need to claim rewards at each area over time as some are exclusive to certain points of the map. In other words, you can’t drop into the same location over and over expecting to find unique rewards each time.
