CoD pro Huke suspended from Twitter after classic mistake

Call of Duty star Cuyler ‘Huke’ Garland had his Twitter account suspended for a strange reason, just ahead of his 19th birthday.

Getting banned from Twitter isn’t the easiest thing in the world to achieve as you usually either have to fall foul of some copyright rules over a period of time, or be mass reported for a controversial post.

Yet, there are ways to be temporarily suspended that can be automatically enforced by the social media platform for a pretty strange reason – especially if you meet the age requirements like Huke. 

Huke represented Envy and Splyce in Black Ops 4 but will play for Dallas Empire in Modern Warfare.

On October 19, new teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks noted that Huke’s account had gone missing from the platform – but he also couldn’t miss the opportunity to have a laugh at his expense.

“LMAO my mans Huke got suspended for being ‘under 13’,” he posted with a crying laughing emoji attached. 

Anyone who wanted to investigate if that had been the case, or Clayster was baiting them into a joke, was either greeted with the typical account has been suspended message or tweets cant be loaded at this time note.

Of course, like many young competitors, Huke likely joined the platform before 13 – the required age to have an account – and perhaps decided to update his date of birth. Due to age restrictions on the platform, this can trigger a suspension from Twitter. 

It’s not the first example of someone in esports falling foul to this, however, as European organization Fnatic had their account fall off the face of the platform back in August.

As of writing, Huke’s account hasn’t been reinstated by the social media platform and the Dallas Empire hasn’t given an update either.

Considering he’s a Call of Duty professional with links to an organization like Envy, it likely won’t take too much longer to get his account back compared to someone without a direct connection to Twitter.

NICKMERCS creates deadly RAM-7 Warzone loadout for all ranges

Twitch and YouTube star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has shown off his pretty interesting Ram-7 loadout for Warzone as players have started experimenting with different weapons. 

Ever since Warzone released, players have constantly fiddled around with their loadouts to try and get something that works for their playstyle but also keeps up with the ever-changing meta. 

With the switch to Black Ops Cold War, the meta has somewhat shifted away from the original weapons in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, but some players have been going back to them – especially in terms of the assault rifles. 

We’ve seen new classes for the M4, the Kilo 141, as well as Amax CR-56, but now NICKMERCS has been trying out the Ram-7 again, and he’s got a pretty spicy class.

The RAM-7 can be tough to control without the right attachments.

As Nick notes, the Ram-7 was, at one point, the strongest assault rifle in Warzone but updates saw it displaced by others. Yet, it’s still pretty nice in terms of the damage it deals and not being incredibly slow to carry. 

“It’s a very, very strong assault rifle, but it’s kind of hard to control the recoil at distance,” Nick said. “I’ll be honest man, I had never used the Ram-7 ironsight in Warzone… this things slaps.”

With his setup, Nick has boosted the accuracy, range, and control somewhat, but the mobility does take a hit.

  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: FSS Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammo: 50-round mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

Now, whether or not the weapon will displace some others and cement its place in the meta is anyone guess. However, it’s still not as quick as weapons like the FFAR and Mac-10, so it might take another round of nerfs and buffs to really get the Ram-7 up there. 

Yet, Nick’s setup is a pretty nice close to mid-range setup, and worth messing around with if you’re looking for something new.
