Crimsix defends Nadeshot over HBR Champs play after 5 years

Dallas Empire’s Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter has given his thoughts on why former OpTic Gaming teammate Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag pulled out the HBR at CoD Champs in 2015.

Nadeshot and his HBR has become a classic meme in the years since he used the off-meta gun, especially since OpTic’s 7th place at the tournament was a far cry from the easy win many fans expected.

It’s a joke that has never left Nadeshot despite all his success since, and is something he has tried defending in various ways: arguing that the gun later became meta, or that it was powerful at the time.

However, Crim thinks there’s a reasonable explanation for why Nade did what he did, and even called it “the right play.”

OpTic Gaming were dominant in 2015, and Nadeshot was one of the biggest names in esports.

While trying to recruit Nadeshot to play with him in the next Vikkstar Warzone tournament, Crim said that if he agrees to play with him he will “say what really happened” on the HBR incident — and came through before any confirmation was even made.

“You pulled out an HBR because Formal, you, and myself in that particular series were getting sh*t on,” he said. “You decided to use it to pick up the slack slaying wise.”

That wasn’t all, though. He continued: “It was the right play, but the wrong gun. I think you/the HBR was the scapegoat for that Champs.”

There are all kinds of theories as to why Nadeshot pulled out the HBR at Champs. At the time, the man himself simply said it was a mistake and he meant to pick his double Semtex ASM1 class, which is definitely believable.

Crim’s theory is pretty different to ones we’ve seen in the past, but could be somewhat accurate.

We know that introducing new guns to the Call of Duty meta can sometimes cause troubles for enemy players, as evidenced during Luminosity Gaming’s win at CWL Fort Worth when they opted to use the Rampart, so introducing the HBR could have been a big-brain play from Nadeshot’s perspective that just, unfortunately, didn’t work out.

Regardless of the real reason, it’s unlikely the meme will die with Crim’s comments, but it might prompt some people to think more about why Nade even had the HBR ready to go at all.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
