Nade Thinks Scump Should Retire and Start Making Content Again “I’d give him a bag [of money] to join 100 Thieves”

The competitive Call of Duty community was treated to an evening of wisdom by former champion Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag on Wednesday, August 1.

The former OpTic Gaming captain retired in April 2015 after a poor performance at CoD Champs 2015 on Advanced Warfare, but has maintained relationships within the scene and has appeared at a number of events in a spectator capacity.

The 100 Thieves owner and popular content creator returned to play Call of Duty WWII on a special stream with former CoD pro Anthony ‘NAMELESS’ Wheeler, and got into a discussion about a former teammate, Seth ‘Scump’ Abner.

On the back of a poor performance on OpTic Gaming at the CWL Pro League Stage Two playoffs, the question about whether the Call of Duty legend should retire has been floated on a number of occasions.

Scump himself has even discussed the topic at CWL Anaheim, telling Dexerto that he thinks about retiring every day. Could a poor performance at CoD Champs 2018 be the end of the road?

Former teammate Nadeshot has expressed his thoughts on the situation during that stream with NAMELESS.

“To be honest with you, if I was Scump, I’d retire. Scump. I would almost make the argument, which I know people are going to tell me that I’m dead wrong, but, people don’t really understand the numbers of it all. I bet there are more people that recognize Scump because of his public match gameplay on YouTube than they do as him as a competitive player.”

“Scump is so good at pubs, all of his videos bang dude. Scump, all he’s got to do is sit there for like an hour, get a banging ass gameplay playing TDM or pub stomping in Dom, and 300,000 people are watching it.

Scump could stress so much less and sign with an organization that would pay him to be a streamer or YouTuber, and he could play SnD tournaments and do whatever he wants and he doesn’t have to worry about anybody talking shit, saying nothing.”

Nadeshot continued on that train of thought and suggested that he would pay big money in order to acquire Scump’s services as a content creator.

“Scump could get a bag dude, I’d give Scump a bag to join 100 Thieves. Kick-off that road to 100-0. I’m just saying, Scump could do so much more and he wouldn’t have to worry about. I mean he’s done everything dude. Won champs, X-Games, MLG’s.”

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.
