Call of Duty veteran and CDL caster Clint ‘Maven’ Evans was stunned after Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar landed an insane shot on him at the start of a Warzone match.

Summit was parachuting into a pregame warmup of Infinity Ward’s new battle royale when he came across a lone player making his way through a nearby rooftop – a ripe opportunity for an early game heat check.

After confirming there was someone running by, summit equipped his Crossbow and pushed down the ADS barely long enough to still classify it as a quick-scope.

Gamers from all over have been jumping into Call of Duty: Warzone.

At this point in the broadcast, the 1g was about halfway through a five-hour Modern Warfare stream and was starting to feel the burn of the high-energy entertainment he’s known for.

But after the screen confirmed that summit1g landed a killing blow on a player with the gameID ‘[Bald]Maven,’ a name that could be easily used by a fan of the well-known industry figure, he was instantly wide-eyed with astonishment.

“Imagine if that was the real Maven I just did that to,” summit1g said, an idea that would seemingly be too funny to be true.

But if a fan of both streamers had the two live broadcasts playing on the same screen, then they would have a picture-in-picture view of summit’s insane shot and Maven’s ludicrous death – including his reaction.

The mouth-gaped Maven quickly regained his composure after he barely caught sight of a parachuting player just as he was killed in the game.

It didn’t take him long to realize that he’s “definitely playing against PC players because [he] just got smoked by summit mid-air.”

Maven was visibly stunned seeing how he got killed. But when watching himself die a second time in the replay, he was audibly impressed after “summit just ‘s**t’ in [his] f***ing soul.”

The victim explained to his teammates that summit had let go of his chute to line up a perfect “crossbow [shot to] the forehead.”

Though streaming separately, summit still chuckled like he was seeing Maven’s reaction after getting hit with a dirty shot like that. Meanwhile, Maven was amazed at what he knew was just another entry in the former-CSGO pro’s long highlight reel.

After the Black Ops Cold War Beta was available on PC, data-miners and hackers scoured through the game’s code to find hidden features, and some of them have seemingly stumbled upon a usable/playable version of a classic Call of Duty sniper rifle – the Barret .50 cal.

Unfortunately, with a little bit less than 24 hours to go, the Black Ops Cold War Beta is almost over. While most people spent the weekend knee-deep in the game’s base weapons, maps, modes, etc., many PC data-miners were enjoying everything the pre-release version had to offer that was hidden in the game’s coding.

Throughout the weekend, many players were leaking parts of the game’s code that referred to a number of unreleased features. While most of them were obviously left-over assets from Black Ops 4 or, at the very least, unsubstantiated pieces of data, there seems to be a classic sniper coming to the game.

A Black Ops Cold War Beta mod video from YouTuber Andrew2007 seems to show the Barrett .50 cal, a fan-favorite sniper rifle from several previous Call of Duty title, as a part of the game, although it appears that the gun is named ‘Barret M82’ for BOCW.

As can be seen in the video below, the weapon isn’t done, as there are no firing and reloading sound associated with the weapon. There isn’t even a scope texture, with a white square taking its place. This makes sense, as unreleased weapons generally don’t have all the assets associated with them attached until much closer to release.

For those confused as to why the rifle is firing at such a high rate, this is due to the mods that the user installed for the game. The actual Barret will certainly not function that way if and when it gets fully released.

Speaking of which, it’s also entirely possible that the video is fake and that the YouTuber simply modded the weapon into the game. Still, it looks pretty convincing, and given the fact that other prominent leak pages like leaker ModerWarzone have corroborated, its existence seems more likely than not.

The inclusion of the Barrett 50 cal is certainly a welcome one. The gun was featured in CoD 4: Modern Warfare, MW2, MW3, and even Black Ops 2’s story campaign. A variant of it was also featured in Modern Warfare (2019) but it was titled the Rytec AMR and featured some differences from the original.

Activision
The Barrett 50 cal sniper has been featured in multiple Call of Duty games including every entry of the Modern Warfare series.

What’s most likely to happen with this gun, judging from the fact that it wasn’t even included in the beta or alpha, is that it’s being saved for the post-launch content that Activision and Treyarch are planning on releasing.

Either way, it won’t be long until we find out since Black Ops Cold War is set to release on November 13, 2020.
