FormaL casually proves to Scump why he’s the “better T2P member”

After his Chicago Huntsmen teammate Seth ‘Scump’ Abner posed the question, T2P member Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper promptly and casually made his case for why he’s the “better” member of the famed Call of Duty duo.

Some of the best duos in history are built on one-upmanship, such as the unstoppable Lakers two-man show in Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal. Like Shaq and Kobe, the legendary Call of Duty duo T2P has won many championships together, and required a bit of patching after a falling out.

But, unlike the three-time NBA champions, the duo of Scump and FormaL are still playing together today, reunited under the Chicago Huntsmen banner and led by their former boss in Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez.

Scump and FormaL have reunited with a star-studded roster under the Chicago Huntsmen.

As the two approach their next campaign together, with the opening weekend of Call of Duty League less than two weeks away, their competitive sparks haven’t faded at all, and even during streams they’re still trying to outclass each other.

During a January 14 stream, Scump posed the question to his teammate: who would you say is the better T2P member? “It’s obvious,” FormaL replied, “it’s me.”

As Seth remarked on his own impressive shots, Matthew kept calm while making his own case for being the best, dropping five opponents with the HDR sniper rifle in less than thirty seconds.

Impressively, four of his kills came from four consecutive shots in a row, and included a helicopter passenger as well as the pilot who was attempting to flee. His final kill came from a player trying to hide next to a crane.

“You might think you’re nasty,” his teammate Scump said, unaware that FormaL was in the midst of dropping four players with four straight shots, “but you’re not.”

“Uh huh,” Piper replied, focusing more on getting kills than engaging in trash talk, “whatever you say, brotha.”

Eventually, the teammates would lead their squads to a victory in the Ground War match they were in, and they hope to rack up a lot more wins together when CDL begins.

The two won several events together under OpTic from 2015 to 2017, before a clashing of egos and a sudden downturn in quality of play resulted in FormaL’s departure and the collapse of the OpTic CoD empire, according to Scump.

Years later, the two would reconcile their differences and reunite, with fresh championships aspirations now driving the duo forward once again.

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.
