After a two year period in which he played professional Call of Duty, the Florida Mutineers and Call of Duty League’s Bradley ‘Frosty’ Bergstrom is leaving the CDL to rejoin his former Halo teammates on the Sentinels.

With Halo Infinite expected to release sometime in 2021, Frosty has opted to rejoin the scene in which he won two world championships and depart from the CDL after being an unrestricted free agent following a successful campaign with the Mutineers. While Frosty and the Mutineers won multiple Home Series championships and finished in third place for the CDL’s inaugural regular season, the veteran FPS player is leaving competitive CoD for the time being.

In 2020, the Mutineers finished their regular season with 230 CDL Points, just behind the No. 2 Dallas Empire’s 260 and the No. 1 Atlanta FaZe’s 280. But that season-long run fizzled out, as the roster went 1-6 in the playoffs, eventually losing to an upsurging OpTic Gaming Los Angeles in Elimination Round 3.

With Frosty becoming an unrestricted free agent after the team’s unfortunate failings at CDL Champs, he has elected to return to Halo with a contract from the Sentinels instead of grasping at what should be more limited offer sheets in the CDL given the league’s switch to a 4 vs. 4 format for Treyarch and Raven Software’s Black Ops Cold War. 

In his announcement tweet, the two-time Halo World Champion expressed his comfort in returning to his original title succinctly: “Back home.”

That comfort is well-deserved, as he will be rejoining teammates from TOX Gaming, OpTic Gaming, and Counter Logic Gaming — Paul ‘SnakeBite’ Duarte, Tony ‘Lxthul’ Campbell, and Matthew ‘Royal2’ Fiorante. Together, the four won 10 major championships in just three years from 2016 to 2018.

Together, the Sentinels’ new Halo lineup constitutes the most prolific roster in the esport’s history. But it appears that their newest addition’s split from the Call of Duty League wasn’t under the warmest circumstances.

Following a congratulatory tweet from the Mutineers, that was intended to jokingly mock how pro CoD players viewed Modern Warfare 2019, Frosty shot back and shut them down, with kindness: “I do not f**k with you at all, but good looks.”

Despite whatever bad blood may remain with Florida, the two-time Halo World Champion is returning to his roots after a strong showing in two years as a CoD pro. And expectations will certainly be high for his legendary new roster’s chances in 2021 and beyond.
