Goldenboy Roasts Clayster During Halo Tournament After Mikwen Hilariously Fails

Halo caster Alex ‘Goldenboy’ Mendez took a surprise jab at CoD player James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks when Austin ‘Mikwen’ McCleary failed in a similar fashion to the Call of Duty legend.

Renegades was playing TOX at HCS New Orleans, leading 10-7 early on in an Oddball match.

Mikwen was sneaking around the outskirts of the map with Active Camo on and attempted a difficult jump to flank TOX. It went about as well as Wuskin’s dive.

Of course, falling off of a map is the signature move of Clayster, who’s movements during the jetpack era of Call of Duty created a meme on the level of Nadeshot’s HBR.

That was not lost on Goldenboy who immediately referenced Clay after the fall.

Some bloopers were to be expected as Halo developer 343 made significant changes to their game leading up to HCS New Orleans.

Oddball was added as a competitive mode and three new maps from the Forge community became a part of the HCS rotation.

Mikwen fell off of one of these new maps.

HCS New Orleans takes place from July 13 to 15 at the Morial Convention Center, with the Championship Sunday stream starting at 11:00AM CST.

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.
