North American esports organization 100 Thieves have revealed the first two members of their highly anticipated Call of Duty roster.

Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams and Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez have officially joined the org and will compete under 100 Thieves during the upcoming Black Ops 4 season. 

The news was announced late on August 28 via a post on the official 100 Thieves Twitter page.

The time has finally come…
100 THIEVES ENTERS CALL OF DUTY
Welcome to the team @100T_KuavoKenny & @100T_Fero.

Kenny also posted about this massive move on his own Twitter page, expressing his gratitude for the opportunity.

100T founder and CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, a former tournament-winning CoD pro player himself, was understandably very excited about his org’s massive announcement.

This news comes hours after both players announced that they would be leaving Team Kaliber, and it is now apparent that neither player had truly entered free agency as their new team had already been decided before their departure.

Kenny and Fero established themselves as top players during the WWII season, as both played integral roles in helping tK have a very successful campaign.

After acquiring Fero mid-season, tK went on to win the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs and place second at the CWL Championships. 

Of course all of this came after the team had already won the CWL open events at both Dallas and New Orleans, with Kenny leading the way as their standout player.

Now both will be teaming again for a 100 Thieves team that has not featured in competitive Call of Duty since their brief and fruitless spell during the second half of the Black Ops 3 season in 2016.

However, Nadeshot has been very honest about his desire to acquire a quality CoD roster, and it appears he has managed to get the two players he has openly been a fan of in recent months.

With two of the best available talents already locked into the 100T roster, fans will await to see who will be joining them for the Black Ops 4 season.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
