Professional Call of Duty player Dillon ‘Attach‘ Price was featured on a national news show on CNN, but not for the reasons you’d expect. 

While talk of politics is not commonly found in the world of professional gaming and esports, there are those that will crack a joke here and there about governmental leaders, especially the President of the United States.

Case in point – Attach, a world champion CoD pro who called the President “the most successful troll of all time” in a tweet on June 22.

His tweet came in response to one that the President had put out, which included an animated cover of Time Magazine suggesting that his policies and ideology could far outlive his Presidency.

While Attach may not have thought much about his tweet, since he’s hardly the first to say such a thing about the current President, the post ended up being featured on CNN, one of the biggest news outlets in the US and around the world.

The tweet put out by the President, and other comments he had made relating to the subject, were being discussed on a political commentary show when suddenly Attach’s tweet was flashed across the screen, and was even read out-loud by the host.

The moment was captured by the CoD pro and posted on his Instagram account, along with the caption “Welp, I was on CNN yesterday lol”

Attach and Evil Geniuses walking CWL Pro League tightrope

While getting a tweet featured on CNN might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Attach, his current situation in the CWL Pro League is far from ideal.

He and his Evil Geniuses squad are currently 8-13 in Division A, and are mathematically eliminated from finish in the top-four, meaning that they cannot clinch an automatic entry into the $1.25 million Playoffs at CWL Finals.

However, EG will still have a chance of making it into the postseason, as the bottom-four teams from both divisions will compete against each other in a Play-In tournament, from which two squads will qualify for Playoffs.

Rapper turned popular Twitch streamer Soulja Boy went on a hilarious rant-like victory speech after he dominated the opposition in a match of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

After loading into the Crossroads map for a little free for all action, the rapper took no prisoners, destroying the other members of the lobby with ease.

By the time Soulja landed the final kill bringing his score to 30, the player back in second place had a mere 22 making the streamer’s performance even crazier.

Soulja himself was over the moon with his play and boasted his insane skills in an epic speech where he shouted at the top of his lungs.

Soulja Boy was hyped after winning the round.

“Let’s f**king go! I’m in beast mode! I’m at f**king beast mode!” he screamed in glory. “Stop playin’ with me! That’s what I do! When I get in that mode!”

As the 30-year-old continued his hyped speech, the “Best Play” was being shown in the background documenting the streamer’s series of frags.

Throughout the clip, Soulja manages to pick up three kills in quick succession padding his lead. Amusingly, some in his chat thought that the game was too dominant and he was playing against AI.

“Of course when a [person] winning they’re going to say it’s bots!” he smirked. “I’m so motherf***ing raw I make these [people] look like bots! Look up them Gamer Tags and DM then and ask them if they’re bots!”

Needless to say, Soulja Boy’s confidence was really something else and being able to back up the trash talk with big wins just makes it so much sweeter.

Of course, if you want, you can use Soulja’s loadout in your own games and see if it makes you pop off as hard as him. For his primary weapon, he opts for the MP5 with the Duckbill Choke, Millstop Reflex, +22 extended, 6RND Tube and Steady Aim Laser.

Soulja Boy was making opponents look like bots from the campaign.

His secondary is the Hauer 77. For equipment, he opts for stuns, semtex, and proximity mine. Finally, for perks and Wildcard he uses Paranoia, Gearhead and Ghost equipped with Danger Close.

Give it a shot and see if you can get on Soulja Boy’s level.
