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.

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.
