100 Thieves latest recruit, Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat gave fans a preview of what clutching a big round of SnD in a professional match of Black Ops 4 might look like, with a smart 1v4 vs the rumored G2 Esports roster.
While playing a 5v5 SnD tournament with the whole 100T squad, they came up against another full roster of professional players, as the elite of Call of Duty are learning the new game.
Playing Payload, which has a high probability of being in the competitive map rotation, at least for one game mode, SlasheR managed to clutch up after being left on his own in the 1v4.
With the change to 5v5 for Black Ops 4 competitive, some fans are concerned that we might never see a 1v5 clutch, with an extra player making it too difficult, not to mention the increased health of players.

However, the ease with which SlasheR clutched this 1v4, makes it hard to believe a player of his caliber would be incapable of finding one more – especially once specialists are in play.
Currently, specialists are not used in SnD tournaments and wagers, until the official rule set is released showing which are allowed and which ones are banned.
After Jacob ‘Decemate’ Cato and Ricky ‘Ricky’ Stacy body stacked, giving SlasheR an easy two piece, he flanks around the map to come up behind Martin ‘Chino’ Chino, before finishing off the clutch by snapping on Rasim ‘Blazt’ Ogresevic.

Despite the increased health and ability to heal, if a good player can work the map to force one on one engagements, and then hit their shots like SlasheR did, we could well see some 1v5 clutches once competitive play is in full swing for Black Ops 4.
Unfortunately for 100 Thieves fans, they went on to lose this map 4-6, which is a good sign for those looking forward to the roster rumored to be on G2 Esports, when it is announced.
He and the 100 Thieves roster will have their chance to clutch up on the main stage in December, when the first even for Black Ops 4, CWL Vegas, takes place.
