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.

Streamer frags out in Black Ops Cold War with Rockband guitar controller

Call of Duty players have been known to whip out some pretty outlandish controllers in years past, and now that trend has continued with Black Ops Cold War with one streaming using a Rockband guitar.

Twitch streamer TheStevieP decided to play the game’s zombies and even multiplayer mode with the absurd controller, but was actually seeing some success with it despite its obvious limitations.

While playing with a guitar may sound impossible, especially with a game as fast-paced as COD, TheStevieP found a button layout setup that gets the job done.

“Walk is down on the strum bar, walking backward is up on the strum bar,” he explained. “To look around, red is to the left, yellow is to the right, blue is up, orange is down. And green shoots.”

However, some of the drawbacks of playing with the guitar are that he doesn’t have a reload button or a grenade button that could get him into some serious trouble in the heat of a firefight.

“If I get a kill in multiplayer I’m going to laugh,” he chuckled. “The person who dies to me deserves to be laughed at.”

As it turns out, his remark was spot on, because just a little bit later, the streamer hopped into multiplayer to partake in some TDM on the infamous Miami map.

After struggling with four deaths to his name, TheStevieP ended up getting into an extremely awkward firefight on a stairway. After missing his first few shots and taking some damage, he managed to finally land a direct hit, eliminating his opponent.

“Yo!” he jumped up with his arms raised in victory.

As he let out a hardy belly laugh, the streamer did end up falling himself, but it was perfectly fine by him, who still couldn’t believe he managed to pull off the frag.

“Let’s go!” he beamed again with glee.

The clip taking from the stream ended up being posted to Reddit where it received a whopping 3.8K upvotes by users on the platform who were impressed with the play.

Black Ops Cold War is still very young so there is no telling what else streamers and content creators will try to up the ante in the bizarre controller department. As it stands though, this was one heck of a way to kick off the entertainment.
