The LA Thieves are looking to recruit Sam “Octane” Larew and Dylan “Envoy” Hannon during the off-season, according to a report from CDL Intel on Thursday.

Octane had previously been under contract with the Seattle Surge for the first two years of the Call of Duty League. However, just days into the Call of Duty League Championship, Seattle announced that they would be releasing their entire roster. This sudden “squad wipe” was unexpected due to the caliber of talent on the roster. Octane, on the other hand, was thankful to be free from the team that was one of the worst in the league for the last two years.

Envoy is allegedly joining the LA Thieves alongside Octane after OpTic Chicago released him. The news of Envoy’s departure from OpTic came off the back of rumors that the Dallas Empire would be merging with OpTic Chicago. Both players were some of the hottest free agents in the off-season alongside Ian “Crimsix” Porter who has been reported to go to the New York Subliners.

Octane returns to the LA Thieves

100 Thieves, now known as LA Thieves in the Call of Duty League, did not enter the league during the inaugural season. That meant that their championship-caliber roster, featuring Octane, faced a split. On 100 Thieves during Black Ops 4, Octane was easily one of the best assault rifles in the game. He won the MVP award for their victory at CWL London and helped the team bring home back-to-back championships to the organization.

He will be replacing Austin “SlasheR” Liddicoat, who LA Thieves released just days prior to the report, as the team’s main assault rifle. SlasheR is now reportedly heading to the rival Los Angeles spot on the LA Guerrillas with former LA Thieves teammate Cuyler “Huke” Garland. Envoy will be replacing the multiple submachine guns that circled through LA Thieves last season. In total, LA Thieves had five different SMG players, three of which they released. If the rumors of this roster are true, the LA Thieves roster would be Octane, Envoy, Zach “Drazah” Jordan, and Kenny “Kenny” Williams.
