Carson “Brack” Newberry, Colt “Havok” McLendon and Mike “MajorManiak” Szymaniak will complete the Florida Mutineers lineup for Modern Warfare 2, The Rotation sources confirm.
MajorManiak is the only player to have retained his spot from the old Florida Mutineers team, with Cesar “Skyz” Bueno, Joe “Owakening” Conley and Brendan “2ReaL” Stockdale all needing to find new homes.
Brack comes into the team having been right in amongst the top tier of Challengers players in the Call of Duty League. He has been deserving of his shot in the league for years now and will finally get the chance to play on the biggest stage.
He was previously a member of the Toronto Ultra team in Modern Warfare but couldn’t break into the roster when they had their 10-man setup in 2020.
Brack then went on to dominate in Challengers during Vanguard. He earned himself a place in our Team of the Year.
Brack teamed with new teammate MajorManiak during the Toronto Open, when Szymaniak was still signed as a substitute player for Rokkr.
Their team went all the way to the Grand Finals. They bested hometown favourites Toronto Ultra Academy NA to come away with the LAN victory.
Havok is another player who started off life as a Challengers player in Vanguard. Before being quickly picked up by the Minnesota Rokkr. He was part of the Texas Nation squad that won seven straight chips at the start of the NA Challengers season.
It’s almost as if Colt is coming full circle in the Call of Duty League. He got his first place in the league on the Mutineers roster. Now, he’ll take up a starting position on their team once again heading into the new season.
He had a fantastic year personally over the course of Vanguard but he, like the Mutineers missed out on Champs. His Rokkr side placed T12 in New York, leading to them completely tearing apart their team too.
What to expect from this new team
On paper this new team looks like it will be incredible in Search and Destroy. MajorManiak is one of the finest SnD players in Call of Duty League history and they’ve added two pieces in the form of Vikul and Brack who were renowned for huge plays on the mode last season.
One of the biggest criticisms of the old Mutineers team was that it was slow and had too much AR presence, with three of their four players being classified as ARs. That is no longer the case.
Havok and Vikul have the potential to be one of the fastest and most devastating sub-duos in the league. Both players possess immense ability and should be able to go toe-to-toe with any other in the league.
The more typical setup of the team will allow them to be more traditional in their approach to certain situations. This, of course, will all depend on how MW2 plays, of course.
The Florida Mutineers MW2 team is:
Vikul (Javier Milagro, SPA)
Brack (Carson Newberry, USA)
Havok (Colt McLendon, USA)
MajorManiak (Mike Szymaniak, USA)
