Popular Australian YouTuber Elliott ‘Muselk’ Watkins has explained why he still prefers to play Fortnite over Warzone in his appearance on the CouRage & Nadeshot Show.

Muselk and some of his former Click Crew associates, such as Lazarbeam and Loserfruit, became absolutely massive off the back of Fortnite’s success throughout 2018 and 2019 and forged massive careers for themselves.

While other content creators that were huge within the Fortnite realm, such as Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop himself, have moved on to different titles, Muselk has stuck with Fortnite.

Muselk has reached great heights with his Fortnite content, and doesn’t appear to be stopping any time soon.

Warzone has been the main winner from any depletion Fortnite’s player base may have experienced throughout 2020, with many of the top content creators making the switch to Call of Duty’s latest battle royale hit.

For Muselk, though, Warzone doesn’t quite offer the same satisfaction that Fortnite still does, even to this day.

“Don’t get me wrong: I love Warzone,” he said. “I think that it’s so, so fun. I don’t necessarily think it has quite the depth of gameplay to keep people… Once you hit that 1000 hours mark, I think Fortnite’s a game where I still feel like I’m learning so much everyday.”

He goes on to explain that he believes this is the case because of Fortnite’s unique building element, and that he has some friends who are already starting to get a little tired of Warzone.

While Muselk clearly believes he can gain a lot more from Fortnite in terms of depth of gameplay than he would do from Warzone, Nadeshot was quick to play Devil’s Advocate and suggest that perhaps the building element is what drove so many people away from Fortnite in the first place.

Although many other top content creators have switched to Warzone, Muselk is still seeing a lot of success in Fortnite, and with this you can tell how much he still thoroughly enjoys it.

Iconic Call of Duty Raid map spotted in Black Ops Cold War files

Eight years after its introduction in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops 2’s Raid could finally be returning in a mainline entry as files for the iconic map have been uncovered in Black Ops Cold War.

Treyarch’s fan-favorite Black Ops 2 released in 2012. Since then, we’ve seen eight new titles come and go. In that gap, Raid has only made one other appearance in a global title, that title being Call of Duty Mobile.

While other maps have been rereleased countless times, including seven remakes of Nuketown alone, Raid has been left in the past. However, that’s about to change according to the latest leaks.

After an extended period in the shadows, Raid could finally be thrown back into the spotlight soon. Dataminers have uncovered a line of code relating to the map in Black Ops Cold War, suggesting that we’ll see it return in Season 1.

As a huge influx of Season 1 content slipped through the cracks on December 1, one key line stood out from the pack. ‘S1_map_raid_tu_cairo’ was plucked directly from the latest version of Black Ops Cold War.

Obviously, this doesn’t outright confirm Raid is a guarantee for the next Season. This is the first official reference to the map in quite some time, though, so it’s safe to assume Treyarch has been working to bring it back to life.

Raid might finally be back in a mainline CoD title for the first time since 2012.

The original map quickly became a favorite for its unique design. There were distinct sections that paved the way for vast combat opportunities. Both close-range and long-range loadouts could feel right at home on Raid. On one side you had a wide-open area with a high ground advantage for one team next to a  

On the other, you had a circular area perfect for flanking opportunities. Meanwhile, in the middle lane, you’d often catch snipers peeking across from either side in a near-symmetrical layout.

One of the more interesting tidbits from this datamine is the final word. Cairo is the capital of Egypt. The original version of Raid was set in Los Angeles. So when we see this new version, it could have a fresh coat of paint to fit the locale.

It was an extremely popular competitive map throughout the year of its initial release. Given it worked quite well with essentially all objective-based game modes. From Hardpoint to Search and Destroy, Raid was often a favored pick.

Season One of Black Ops Cold War kicks off on December 10. There’s no confirmation we’ll see Raid in-game from this point on, so do take this leak with a grain of salt until then.
