FormaL drops insane 34 kill Blackout match – with a knife

Professional Call of Duty player Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper stunned his viewers with an incredible 34 kill Blackout win, while only using a combat knife. 

FormaL is one of many professional Call of Duty players whose future is up in the air, as the CoD scene makes the unprecedented transition into a franchised league. The former world champion is spending his off season streaming on Twitch, impressing viewers with his insane FPS skills. 

While playing Black Ops 4 on September 27 FormaL was, once again, showing off his skills when it comes to Treyarch’s battle royale. He has dropped a number of incredible games previously, including one that baffled Twitch streamer DrDisrespect.

FormaL most recently represented Luminosity Gaming in the CWL.

FormaL has vocalized his desire to commit to Twitch, particularly when he does not have any Call of Duty tournaments to be practicing for.

This seems to be paying off, as he currently sits at upwards of 20,000 subscribers on the streaming platform, and regularly stuns his audience with his talents. 

34 kills would be a tall order for a top player with a gun, but the ease with which FormaL achieves it reinforces his reputation as one of the best CoD players ever. 

The ending was posted to Twitch and amassed a lot of attention, as FormaL simply runs around a building and eliminates a whole team in quick succession. 

While he makes it look easy, the game knowledge required to pull off such a play – avoiding long distance confrontations, positioning to ambush enemies – cannot be overstated, plus a bit of luck of course.

Fans were clearly impressed by the play, with many claiming him to be the best player in the world at Treyarch’s Blackout battle royale.

He has been rumored to be returning to a roster alongside Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, as part of the fabled ‘T2P’ duo that was at the center of the OpTic Gaming dynasty roster. 

While this remains unconfirmed, we are seeing more and more CoD pros announce their destinations. Given his talents and reputation, it’s almost certain we’ll see FormaL leading a roster in next year’s CDL.

Call of Duty 2021 leaks hint at new Modern Warfare follow up

Before Black Ops Cold War arrives, we may already have our first hint of next year’s Call of Duty setting as a prominent leaker has teased a new Modern Warfare sequel.

While the Call of Duty franchise has 17 mainline entries covering a wide array of timelines, two names stand out as the most iconic. Both the Black Ops series and the Modern Warfare series have seen the most iterations over the years. 

Treyarch has already released four titles in the Black Ops series with Cold War just weeks away. Meanwhile, Infinity Ward has four entries in the Modern Warfare series, the original trilogy along with 2019’s reboot. Now, it seems as though a fifth could also be on the way with Infinity Ward at the helm.

Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software will reportedly be taking a back seat. Instead of the typical three-year development cycle, Infinity Ward has just two-years to work with. We’re still 12 months off from 2021’s mystery release, but we may already have our first details on next year’s title.

Could Price’s story continue in 2021’s Call of Duty?

“It’s looking like CoD for 2021 is another Modern Warfare title of some kind,” prominent leaker Tom Henderson revealed. Not a whole lot is known beyond that key detail, though the setting for the next release appears to be locked in. 

“Understandably not a lot of information as of yet, but it’s a modern-day setting,” he confirmed. Given Modern Warfare’s hard reboot with 2019’s release, could a new sequel be the next step? This would essentially bypass the original Modern Warfare 2 from 2009 if Activision opts for another identical title.

To avoid even more confusion, there’s a good chance the name is a little different, similar to how Black Ops added Cold War to the title for 2020’s drop, despite it being a direct follow up to Black Ops 1. So expect to see Modern Warfare: ‘something something’ as the likely 2021 title.

This could see a direct continuation from where 2019’s game left off. John Price is looking to assemble a team of classic characters to put a stop to Russian terrorist Victor Zakhaev. If Warzone’s ongoing storyline doesn’t beat the single-player campaign to the punch, this could be our objective in 2021’s release.

While this aspect is purely speculation, the leaker also considered the original Modern Warfare 2 being bundled in. No different from how Infinity Warfare launched with Modern Warfare remastered in 2016.

We’re still months away from any official information on the 2021 title, so take this with a grain of salt for now. Black Ops Cold War is the focus for Activision. Anything regarding next year’s game will be kept under wraps for quite some time yet.
