We are Officially 1 YEAR OLD! This is how and where it all started…



June 1st, 2011. I was sick and didn’t make into work that day so I decided to catchup on all the recent MW3 PRE-E3 buzz and hype. The Microsoft press conference was a couple days away and I was really hyped to see what gameplay would be shown so I decided to go through the 1000+ Call of Duty image JPEGs that I had saved throughout the years and quickly realized how large my collection was and thought it would be a great idea to store them online somewhere. After a few quick google searches for “Free web hosting” I came across and started up my very first Call of Duty website called “” (Locker as in “storage“). Well, the name lasted about an hour till I realized I didnt like it and needed something more catchy. I finally decided on ‘charlie INTEL’ and registered the domain the same day. The name “Charlie” was inspired by Modern Warfare’s original web site “”…

Still only focused on storing images as a type of Call of Duty “media hub”, it wasn’t until I played around with Weebly more that I accidentally discovered it had a blog section which allowed me to post updates and news. So I figured I’d give it a shot and the following week I posted 3 stories. Then it happened…The Microsoft E3 press conference.

I stayed home again because I couldn’t miss it. After being completely blown away by the “Hunter Killer” mission shown by Robert Bowling, I decided to continue forward and remain 100% commited to charlieINTEL. Unfortunately, didnt have any mobile apps and was NOT iPhone friendly which meant I had to wait till my lunch hour at work or when I got home in order to update or add any stories. This is when I asked my 30 followers, if any one would like to help out with the blog. Keshav(@Kkiller14) was the first to respond and was just as enthusiastic as I was.

The next 2 months were a blast. It was now August when the blog was barely 2 months old but taking off when Peter(with FragClip) reached out to me and said he would like to help me upgrade from Weebly to Wordpress, not knowing Peter that well, I took a leap of faith and reluctantly agreed. It was one of the best decisions I made for the blog, it allowed me to update from my mobile phone and update the blog from anywhere I was at, bringing news to everyone seconds after it happened.

500+ articles later.. the rest is history…

The charlie INTEL “Archives”:

Our entire staff would like to say thank you for following and sticking with us throughout the year. Black Ops 2 will surely make 2012 an exciting year.. Here, have some birthday cake!! 😉

Warzone Armor Satchel buff idea would make it even more “Legendary”

This Warzone Armor Satchel buff idea gives the Legendary item an added benefit which many players may like to see make it into the game.

A Warzone player has come up with a simple little buff idea for the Armor Satchel to make it even more “Legendarythan what it already is in the Call of Duty battle royale.

Warzone Season 6 is really bringing the spirit of Halloween with new spooky operators Ghost Face and Donnie Darko. As well as this, the game will also be getting a new event, the Haunting, which will bring a brand new LTM.

With the recent October 15 update patch, some players have changes on their minds.

Although many may not think it needs a buff, one player has come up with an exciting idea to give the Armour Satchel an added detail that would make it even more “Legendary” than it already is.

Reddit user spancer35 is the player responsible for the idea, as they posted the Armor Satchel buff on the Warzone subreddit.

The post is titled: “Here is a little upgrade to Armor(?) Satchel to make it an actual “Legendary Item.”

As many players will know, the Armor Satchel is of Legendary rarity, giving players three additional armor plates to carry on top of the base five. This small buff idea is intended to give the Armor Sachel another bonus, as the user feels the Armor Satchel could use it.

The buff would essentially make it, so the Armor Satchel gives players extra ammo and plates. The image attached to the post shows exactly how much extra ammo the Armor Satchel will provide players.

Some players in the comments have mixed opinions about this idea, though, as one user stated: “I think this is an unnecessary buff. Satchel is in a pretty fair spot and on the biggest upswing can give your entire team 13 plates (drop 5 armor then pickup satchel).”

In contrast, another comment read: “There should be an Ammo Belt where you can have an increased ammo capacity. Like how the Satchel works for Armour Eg. Mid Cal moving from 210 to 270 or 300.”

Perhaps the developers will think about the possibility of adding something like an Ammo Belt or a bonus to the Armor Satchel in the future.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but who knows, perhaps Vanguard’s release and integration will see changes like this.

Apex Legends Season 11 will be bringing a brand new SMG to the game, which Titanfall players are likely to be very familiar with using.

a Great deal of new information has been revealed about Apex Legends Season 11, including the new Legend Ash and hints towards a new map.

As well as all this, although the community wasn’t expecting it, Apex Legends will also be getting a brand new weapon in Season 11, which many players will recognize from the Titanfall series.

Apex Legends Season 11 was announced along with a new Stories from the Outlands trailer by Respawn Entertainment on October 18.

The trailer presented the lore of Ash, giving players an inside into the new Legends.

The developers also released a blog showing off the new content coming to Season 11, titled “Escape.” One of the most intriguing pieces of content is the new weapon.

Apex Legends Season 11 C.A.R. SMG

The new weapon coming to Apex Legends in Season 11 is the C.A.R SMG, which was previously seen in Titanfall.

If you’re a Titanfall fanatic, you’ll already know about the C.A.R SMG, as it was a very popular choice for the game’s multiplayer mode. For those who aren’t familiar with the C.A.R, it’s a fully automatic SMG that features an extremely fast fire rate, as well as pretty smooth recoil.

This isn’t the only weapon from Titanfall that has been reimagined in Apex Legends. To name a few, the R-301, L-Star, and the Flatline were all taken from the Titanfall series. These weapons mostly stay very similar to their original form, with some tweaks and changes.

The recoil for this weapon has likely been reworked as if it is anything like it was in Titanfall. This weapon will absolutely be lethal and easy to use.

The description for the weapon on the Apex Legends Season 11 blog reads: “A flexible weapon, the C.A.R SMG is the gun for when you’re ready to make a stand and become the last Legend still standing.”

This description suggests there will be something unique about the weapon, especially due to the wording used. The weapon’s flexibility could be that it takes multiple ammo types, or perhaps it has an alternate fire mode.

We’ll have to see when the new Season officially launches in early November. Stay up to date with all the information you need on Season 11 through our Apex Legends news and updates.
