It’s hard to believe its been 2 years already. Time flies when you’re having fun! As of last week, me(Victor) and Keshav have written just over 1,000 Call of Duty articles. That doesn’t include the articles on our other 3 blogs. It’s been a lot of work but I’m happy to say it’s been completely worth it.

We have a lot to look forward to this year. Victor and Peter will be invading E3 plus the Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft press conference in 10 days. Then the following month Victor will be attending San Diego Comic-Con. Peter, who is from the UK, will be attending the Eurogamer Expo and Gamescom soon after.

For all you newcomers to the blog, I’d like to hit you with some random facts and get you up to speed!

  • We’ve written 1,098 Call of Duty articles since June 1st, 2011.
  • We’ve tweeted over 16,250 times. If you subtract the number of articles plus random tweets, you’ll notice a majority of the tweets are replying to CoD fans.
  • This time last year we only had 9k+ followers.
  • The website originally started on Weebly before moving over to Wordpress.
  • The idea for the name “Charlie” INTEL came from the original and official Call of Duty website, CharlieOscarDelta.com
  • The site started out as “COD Locker” before it was renamed 2 days later.
  • Ad revenue covers 75% of the server fees while the other 25% is paid out of pocket.
  • The site was originally going to be a type of wiki or image database till I accidentally stumbled upon the blog feature on weebly.
  • The blog has had 2.3 Million page views from the start of 2013. For the 6 months of 2011, we had just 30,000 page views.

Our entire staff would like to say thank you for following and sticking with us throughout the last 2 years. Call of Duty Ghosts and Next-gen consoles will surely make 2013 an exciting year!!

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

Black Ops Cold War players call for more Modern Warfare style weapon conversions

Black Ops Cold War players are asking the developers to take inspiration from Modern Warfare by adding more weapon conversions to the game.

Battling players in Black Ops Cold War

Weapon conversions allow you to change how a weapon behaves in Modern Warfare drastically, and players are asking the developers to add more of them to Black Ops Cold War.

Modern Warfare had various weapon conversions that drastically altered how a weapon functions in combat. For example, the X16 came with different triggers to increase or decrease the rate of fire cap.

Balck Ops Cold War only has one conversion with Season 4’s C58, and players aren’t satisfied with that. Some of them are calling the devs to take some inspiration from what Modern Warfare did.

Cold War player fighting with C58

Reddit user Tsuikyit_The_VIP started a discussion about this in the Black Ops Cold War subreddit. They expressed their disappointment with the C58’s weapon conversion in the game.

“The 5.56 60 round drum completely takes away the 4HK potential and doesn’t change up any other stats,” wrote the user. “Much like the M4A1, it should’ve gotten a faster fire rate or reduced recoil to make up for the lack of a 5HK range, but it never got one.”

The Redditor then suggested that the devs should build off what Modern Warfare did by adding more weapon conversions to the game.

Many of the commenters agreed with this suggestion. Several players feel that the current selection of weapon alterations in Black Ops Cold War pales in comparison to what’s available in Modern Warfare.

“I don’t need 15 different optics choices on my weapons,” wrote one user. “Like, what am I gonna do with a sniper scope on my SMGs? Give me some .45 ACP ammo options or selector switch to fire my MX4 on 3 RND burst. “

Hopefully, the developers will continue to innovate the game as its lifecycle continues.

Apex Legends Season 10 update patch notes

Once again, a new season of Apex Legends is on the horizon, bringing not only a host of changes in the patch notes but also brand new content for players to indulge in, so let’s see what fans can expect in the Apex Legends Season 10 patch notes.

Apex Legends has had a pretty strong Season 9, introducing a great new mode in Arenas, a new weapon in the Bocek Bow, and an already loved Legend, Valkyrie.

Just as we received these pieces of new content at the start of Season 9, players will be happy to know that Season 10‘s patch notes will also introduce a heap of new content.

Apex Legends Emergence Season 10 update patch notes

Apex Legends Season 10 Bloodhound

Apex Legends Season 10 release date

Firstly, let’s start with Season 10’s release.

Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence will arrive on August 3, just after the end of Season 9.

As many already know, Season 10 is entitled Emergence, perhaps hinting at the rise of a new Legend.

Apex Legends Season 10: New Legend Seer

Apex Legends Season 10 Seer

With the new Season 10 gameplay trailer and sneak peek on his abilities at EA Play Live 2021, where other iconic games like Battlefield also presented new content, players finally have an understanding of how the Legend will operate.

Seer’s abilities

  • Passive: Heartbeat Sensor, Seer will be able to track enemies with a heartbeat sensor and gain information on their where abouts within a close vicinity.
  • Tactical: Moth Drones, once tracked down with the Heartbeat Sensor, Seer can then send out his moth drones to keep tabs on their movements, similarly to Bloodhounds Scan.
  • Ultimate: Seer’s moth combine to create a large sphere which tracks enemy footsteps when they’re running.

New Rampage LMG

Apex Legends Season 10 Rampage LMG

Further, much like how players were given the Bocek Bow last season, Season 10 will introduce another new weapon called the Rampage LMG.

The Rampage LMG looks very interested and seems to charge up with Thermite Grenades, much like the Sentinal with Shield Cells.

Once charged up, this heavy-hitting machine will be able to break through doors much like Rampart’s Ultimate, Shiela, preventing enemies from camping behind doors.

As this new weapon is an LMG, many believe we could be seeing the Spitfire replacing the Prowler in the care package, but when more information is released, we will keep you updated.

Apex Legends Season 10 Emergence: Battle Pass

Battle Pass Valkyrie skin

Like every season, players will also be getting a new battle pass with lots of new cosmetics and rewards to earn.

From the latest gameplay trailer, we were able to see some of these in action, including a new Valkyrie skin, Horizon skin, and what we suspect will be the Tier 100 Legendary Volt skin.

New Arenas maps and ranked mode

Arenas

Season 10 will also introduce a host of new Arenas maps, which were shown in the new trailer.

The new maps that will be arriving are:

  • Kings Canyon – Hillside
  • World’s Edge – Dome
  • Olympus – Oasis

Further, the new season will also bring Ranked Arenas, which players have been asking for since Arenas was released in Season 9. The Ranked format will be different from Ranked Leagues and more attuned to how Arenas works.

Stay tuned for more on Ranked Arenas.

World’s Edge map changes

World's Edge

Apex Legends Season 10 Emergence will also see a variety of changes coming to World’s Edge, implementing various new POIs, leaving some of the ones players are familiar with completely unrecognizable.

Just to name a few of the POIs that will be changing:

  • Refinery is now Climatizer
  • Sorting Factory has turned into Lava Siphon
  • Train Yard has been destroyed by a land slide

That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 10 patch notes. As more information is released regarding Legend changes and weapon balancing for Emergence, we will update this piece, so be sure to check back here for new information.

While waiting for the official patch notes to be released, why not check out our recent article on the leaked Monster Energy collab for Apex Legends.

We will start with the FSS Carbine Pro barrel, which will give you extra damage range, bullet velocity, and recoil control.

Having the No Stock attachment will provide a huge boost in movement speed and aim down sight speed to help you be even quicker around maps.

Finally, the Ranger Foregrip will give you recoil control and aiming stability to help you land all of your shots, while the .41 AE 32-Round Mags will provide the best Modern Warfare Uzi class with extra damage and range.
