Call of Duty: Insane Blackout glitch throws players across the map

A new Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout glitch enables players to fly through the sky, as long as they flip a cargo truck first.

Since Black Ops 4 was released in October, there have been many glitches across both the Blackout and Multiplayer modes. However, Treyarch have been doing their best to fix them by updating the game every few days. Plenty of bugs and errors still remain but this one reaches new heights

In a post on the Black Ops 4 subreddit, user krayzie1877 showed an example of flying across the Blackout map. First, krayzie stood in the back of the cargo truck with a Hellion Salvo rocket launcher equipped, before rollling down a large hill towards the Train Station area of the map. Before the player reached the bottom, the truck rolled a few metres and flipped on to its side.

Krayzie1877 then climbed on top of the flipped vehicle and waited for a few seconds before being sent skywards, flying above the map. Then, by shooting the equipped rocket launcher, the player ended up outside of the combat zone, and under the Pipeline area at the very south of the map.

In the same Reddit thread, user Cjgrig01 shared their own clip, again in a pre-game lobby, of their truck soaring through the skies.

Blackout: Quickest way to get across the map… from r/Blackops4

In the same Reddit thread, user ‘Cjgrig01’ shared their own clip, again in a pre-game lobby, of their truck soaring through the skies.

Flying through the air in a truck isn’t anything new – since Blackout launched, plenty of players have flown through the air from a flipped truck, landing either very far away from where they started or falling to their death outside the combat zone. However, we have never seen anyone using a rocket launch like this to soar across the map.

It’s clear that Treyarch still have a number of issues to patch in their game’s next update, but we can’t help but feel like the loss of this particular bug will be a sad thing!

A historic tweet from Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, 100 Thieves founder and ex-Call of Duty professional, has resurfaced, showing the future esports star questioning whether he should quit his job at McDonalds. 

The story of Nadeshot’s rise to esports royalty is well known, with the 100 Thieves owner originally making a name for himself as an OpTic Gaming Call of Duty player. Alongside Scump, he became one of the world’s best known CoD players, renowned for his talent and inherently likeable personality on camera.

His time as a CoD player peaked with a Gold Medal at the X Games back in Call of Duty Ghosts, stealing the crown from under the noses of Team Kaliber after a memorable win over Evil Geniuses in the semi-final. But, his success out of game is also crucial, as content creation is the main reason he stood out among other pro players.

A controversial split from OpTic Gaming after Advanced Warfare struggles signalled the end of Nadeshot’s time as a professional CoD player, but his involvement in the esports scene remains as strong as ever.

The founder of 100 Thieves, Nadeshot’s organization currently compete in League of Legends and Valorant. Sources have also indicated to Dexerto that they will soon enter the Call of Duty League, buying Los Angeles OpTic’s slot in the league.

However, reminders of where Nadeshot has come from are frequent, with a 2011 Tweet resurfacing amid attention from big esports names. The Tweet, dated March 27, 2011, sees Nadeshot flirting with the idea of quitting his job at McDonalds.

“Who wants to see me quit McDonalds within this next week or two?!” it reads, representing what a big move his resignation was at the time of the tweet. At this time, he was competing in Call of Duty, and his YouTube/streaming career was just taking off.

Nade himself quoted his tweet with a Ferris Bueller reference, saying how fast life moves:

After the Tweet caught traction on October 30, new replies reflect just how far Nade has come, with H3CZ joking that he’s “got a house” for him to live in. The throwback will be nostalgic for many, as Nadeshot’s time on OpTic Gaming approaches a decade old.

Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem responded, joking that it was worth sticking it out at McDonalds because they’re set to raise the national minimum wage. Regardless, we’re sure owning 100 Thieves is a more lucrative career.

Two-time CoD World Champion JKap also got involved, joking that leaving McDonalds would be “risky” for Nadeshot. It was certainly a risk, but it’s paid off 1000 times over.

Away from big names, many people were quick to comment on how inspirational they found Nadeshot’s rise, targeting similar rises of their own.

One Twitter user said “Follow your dreams. This man is living proof”, while another said: “This is my goal, friends. Soon. Promise.”

Nadeshot’s prominence in the world of esports is testament to his attitude and talent, complemented by a serious amount of hard work. We look forward to hearing similarly inspirational stories from the next generation of esports icons.
