Call of Duty pro player James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks has announced that he may give up live-streaming team scrimmages for the rest of the Black Ops 4 season.

The eUnited star tweeted out on January 16 that he doesn’t feel comfortable streaming when a large majority of his viewers are seemingly just trying to make him look bad. 

“Looks like no more streams for me, see y’all next year,” he tweeted. “Not banned or anything, y’all just ruin everything by being weird, no point in me streaming for entertainment when 90% of people just look for clips to be dicks.”

While some perceived this as him giving up on streaming entirely, Clayster later clarified that his comments were about streaming scrims and not casual gameplay.

“I’m just not going to stream scrims for a bit,” he wrote. “Blackout wagers are still ‘litty’ though.” 

While this may seem out of the blue to some, it does come after a controversial incident involving Clayster and some of his viewers that took place on January 15.

While streaming a scrim against OpTic Gaming, Clayster noticed that a lot of fans of the Green Wall were in his chat trying to troll him and his viewers.

Clearly bothered by what was going on, he began shouting vulgarities at those viewers, but later apologized when he realized he may have let the trolls get a little too under his skin. 

Despite the apology, it seems that it’s not totally water under the bridge for Clayster when it comes to streaming scrims, and those who may want to watch is POV during practice matches against high profile opposition may be out of luck.

Fans of Clayster and his streams will at least be relieved knowing he isn’t completely quitting streaming and will have to suffice with wagers on Blackout.

Now that the Pawn Takes Pawn easter egg hunt is finally over, which connected both Warzone and the upcoming Black Ops Cold War, fans have now been rewarded with in-game items for both games and Call of Duty: Mobile. Here’s how you get your hands on them.

After months of solving easter eggs both online and in Warzone, the Pawn Takes Pawn campaign has finally come to end and while most people thought that the hunt itself was fun, the final reveal of a simple video was a bit less ideal than some were hoping for, to say the least.

That being said, it’s not all bad. As a reward for the community completing the easter egg, Activision is giving all players some sweet rewards for Black Ops Cold War, Warzone/Modern Warfare, and even Call of Duty: Mobile. Getting your hands on them isn’t too tricky but there are a couple steps you have to follow.

Activision has revealed that Warzone, Black Ops Cold War, and Mobile players can unlock special Pawn Takes Pawn items.

Black Ops Cold War, Warzone, and Mobile Pawn Takes Pawn rewards

Players are able to get a slew of rewards for three separate games. While you definitely get more for Modern Warfare/Warzone, the fact that Treyarch is already giving out rewards for Black Ops Cold War before its official release is cool to see. Even giving some love to Mobile is a nice gesture.

  • Black Ops Cold War
    • Knight chess piece weapon charm
    • “Family Portait” calling card
  • Modern Warfare/Warzone
    • Ak-47 weapon blueprint
    • Helicopter skin
    • Pawn chess piece weapon charm
    • 5 emblems
    • 5 calling cards
    • 5 sprays
  • Mobile
    • By15 weapon skin
    • Calling card
    • Avatar
    • Spray
    • Frame

All in all, it’s a ton of content and it’s nice to see Activision giving some love to all games, rather than just one.

Pawn Takes Pawn content instructions

Getting access to all three of these content packs is relatively simple, however, there’s still a few steps that you have to go through. Before you start, you’ll want to make sure that you have an Activision account and that it’s linked to either your PlayStation, Xbox, or Battle.net accounts.

  1. Go to pawntakespawn.com/colorbound and either sign-in to your Pawn Takes Pawn account or make one if you haven’t already.
  2. Type in “1PIECES9IN8PLAY1” in the box that shows up titled Flying Colors.
  3. Watch the video.
  4. After you fully watch the video, you should see an achievement pop up in the top right hand corner allowing you to “redeem rewards”. Click that link and you’ll see a list of codes.
  5. In a separate tab/window, go to callofduty.com/redeem and sign-in to your Activision account.
  6. Input the codes one by one once the box pops up.

It’s worth noting that there’s a small bug associated with the codes. Sometimes, after you watch the video, the achievement won’t pop up. To solve this, re-input the code on the “colorbound” website and watch the video again. It should pop up after that point.

After you complete all the steps, you should see your rewards show up in-game the next time you boot it up.
