After some weeks of speculation, the Minnesota Rokkr have officially unveiled their 2021 Call of Duty League roster. The roster was leaked prior to the announcement, but now we have official confirmation from the organization itself. Overall, the squad looks pretty deadly, with every member having multiple event wins under their belt. As it stands, it looks like Minnesota is going with a two AR/two SMG lineup with one of the ARs acting as a Flex. The Chicago Huntsmen followed a similar role strategy when they signed Brandon “Dashy” Otell yesterday.
Here’s the official Minnesota Rokkr roster for the 2021 CDL:
- Preston “Priestahh” Greiner
- Dillon “Attach” Price
- Mike “MajorManiak” Szymaniak
- Lamar “Accuracy” Abedi
- Brian “Saintt” Baroska (Coach)
Minnesota Rokkr fill out its roster for 2021
The Rokkr seemingly went for players who have prior connections with each other. The team has two former players from the New York Subliners and two from the Atlanta FaZe. However, both Priestahh and Attach have teamed together before, so there are some pre-existing friendships present.
In terms of roster critiques, not much can be said until we actually get our hands on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. As previously stated, teams are going with two ARs and two SMGs for the first year of 4v4 play in the CDL.

In the past, this has traditionally been frowned upon, as you usually want a Flex in place of another AR player. However, Minnesota has stated that one of the Rokkr ARs will act as a Flex whenever the situation calls for it.
Of course, this might not be needed if Black Ops Cold War calls for two AR players in the meta. We’ll just have to wait and see how this roster pans out whenever the 2021 CDL season starts up.
