Adam ‘KiLLa’ Sloss has announced that he is a free agent for the Black Ops 4 season but is also willing to consider a switch to a coaching role.

The 2013 Call of Duty World Champion broke the news on Twitter, saying:

“F/A for blops4 but also considering good coaching offers so HMU”.

KiLLa fans were hoping to see the 25-year-old return to his winning ways when Call of Duty went back to boots-on-the-ground gameplay but his WWII season ended in disappointment.

After a number of lackluster placings and team changes at the start of the year, KiLLa was eventually suspended from all CWL competition in April, alongside a number of players, for account sharing.

The veteran player, who had been toying with the idea of retirement for a number of months, then made the decision to hang up his controller and quit competing.

It looks like he’s changed his mind, though, and the imminent release of Black Ops 4 on October 12 seems to be luring him back into the world of competitive Call of Duty.

Naturally, the former champion will be hoping to return as a player, but his reputation as a tactician and Search and Destroy master could mean that his coaching services could be in higher demand from the world’s top teams.

With teams like Evil Geniuses finding success with high profile coaches like Embry ‘Bevils’ Bevil, the coaching role in Call of Duty esports is likely to become a more important one during the Black Ops 4 season.

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.
