Chicago Huntsmen are arguably the most popular team in the Call of Duty League. With the likes of infamous T2P duo of Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper on the sticks, and Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez as CEO, they were guaranteed to be a team to watch.

Fans haven’t been disappointed, either, as Chicago have undoubtedly been one of the best-performing teams in the league, already having a mass of incredible plays and moments under their belts.

Their win at CDL London was met with emphatic support from the UK crowd, as well as the thousands watching at home, and firmly placed them in the elite group of teams capable of winning a championship, all while looking dominant.

Chicago Huntsmen have one event win to their name, at CDL London.

Despite tough competition from the likes of Atlanta FaZe and Dallas Empire, Chicago are proven winners and have been among the most entertaining teams to watch.

The roster, consisting of Peirce ‘Gunless’ Hillman, Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon and Alec ‘Arcitys’ Sanderson alongside Scump and FormaL, reads like a highlight reel in the making, and here we’ve compiled some of their greatest moments of the Modern Warfare season so far.

Each member of the roster has had their moment in the spotlight, and they’ll likely have many more throughout the season. So, do you agree with our list?

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.
