Call of Duty: Mobile, Brazilian player murdered by another player

Call of Duty: Mobile, Brazilian player murdered by another player

Call of Duty

The Brazilian player of Call of Duty: Mobile Oliveira Bueno da Silva, known in the community by the nickname of SOL, was brutally murdered by another player of the mobile shooter, one Guilherme Alves Costa. Apparently the two met online.

Capable of grossing nearly $ 500 million in the US, Call of Duty: Mobile is quite popular in Brazil, where there is a rather passionate esports scene, but we doubt that this could really have anything to do with the murder.

According to a note left by the killer, the girl was forced to go to her apartment, where she was killed with numerous stab wounds. Not happy with this, the man also posted a video showing the body of his victim.

It is thanks to the video that the police were able to trace the murderer, immediately contacting the group administrators in which it was posted in order to identify the man, who then admitted his guilt.

It seems that the act was carefully planned and, as mentioned, the two met online on the servers of Call of Duty: Mobile, but there are still no explanations about the real reasons for the crime.


Zombies, New Map Coming To ‘Call Of Duty: Warzone’ In Season 2 Leaks Suggest

Two big rumors are starting to take shape ahead of the launch of Warzone and Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 2.

The first rumor is that Verdansk is going to be nuked at some point this coming season leading to a new Cold War themed map set in the Ural Mountains (and not the jungles as I’d hoped) comprised at least partly of Fireteam maps. This new map will replace Verdansk rather than join the rotation, though the smaller Rebirth Island map will remain.

There are two reasons to expect a new Warzone map in Season 2. For one thing, there have been hints, including the Season 2 Roadmap graphic:

In this image you can see a bunch of the new content planned for Season 2 in both Warzone and Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. But the important thing, I believe, is the tagline at the bottom: “THE END BEGINS FEBRUARY 25TH” it reads.

It might be nothing, of course, but “the end begins” suggests that something is about to come to an end, and the Verdansk map seems the likely candidate. It’s not like any other map in the game is going away. It could just be a story clue having to do with missing CIA agent Adler and the various antagonists we’ve been introduced to like Naga and Stitch. But I’m leaning toward this being an actual hint.

Partly, that’s because I do think a new map is going to be introduced on the one-year anniversary of Warzone. Warzone launched to much aplomb on March 10th, 2020, just before a bunch of the country shut down (and just in time for all those suddenly idle gamers to play the free-to-play battle royale—what a stroke of “luck.”)

March 10th is two weeks away, which would mean that some sort of in-game event could start at the outset of Season 2 and unfurl over the next 14 days, culminating in the end of Verdansk and the beginning of some new Warzone map. This is equal parts theory and wishful thinking as I know I’m not alone in being bored to death with the current large map. There are some changes coming to Verdansk in Season 2 as well, however, including new locations which could also indicate that nothing as drastic as a new map is actually coming anytime soon. With only rumors and hints to go off of, it’s impossible to say.

The second big rumor is actually not so much rumor as cold, hard leak at this point.

Zombies appear to be coming to Verdansk or, possibly, the new map (or both) in Season 2. This is thanks to leaked challenges that require players to kill zombies in Warzone:

  • In Warzone, eliminate 8 Zombies before the first circle closes.
  • In Warzone, rapidly kill 2 or more Zombies 2 times.
  • In Warzone, use Shotguns to eliminate 8 Zombies.
  • It’s possible this is just a limited time thing but it seems more likely that Warzone is picking up a feature from Blackout, the battle royale from Black Ops 4. That game didn’t have zombies everywhere, but certain areas like the asylum were extra dangerous thanks to their undead presence. It was actually a pretty cool feature.

    If you’re not a battle royale player, a new large-scale Zombies mode is coming to Black Ops Cold War as well, called Outbreak. Here’s the trailer:
