Nadeshot Forced to Explain the HBR Meme on the Pokimane Podcast

The internet never forgets and that means that former CoD pro, Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, is constantly reminded about using the wrong gun at the wrong time.

The 100 Thieves owner was once the most popular player in the pro-CoD scene as captain of OpTic Gaming, and in April 2015 he had the chance to cement his legacy as one of the all-time greats at the annual world championships.

Despite coming in as the favorites his team was eliminated in 7th place after losing to Denial and FaZe Clan, and he retired after the event to pursue content creation.

During that elimination match against FaZe Clan, Nadeshot confused the casters by pulling out the HBR for one life, which at the time was a fairly uncommon weapon.

He died fairly quickly after equipping it and switched back to his regular weapon for his next life, but that five seconds was all it took for the internet to decide it was a meme, and it’s followed him around ever since.

Nadeshot touched on the subject during his appearance on the podcast of popular streamer, Pokimane.

After talking for roughly 45 minutes on various subjects, Pokimane harmlessly asked why the chat kept spamming “HBR”. With a look of pain on his face, Nadeshot explained the situation.

“Chat. I don’t understand how this meme makes it throughout different communities. So the HBR. I hate you guys. I thought we had something. I thought we had something going here.

I’ll explain quickly. We’re at the biggest Call of Duty event of the year, it’s called Call of Duty Champs, Call of Duty Championships. We were favorites to win the event, OpTic Gaming, we’d won three events back to back to back in a row prior to this event [sigh]”

After explaining why it was unusual for the HBR to be used, Nadeshot makes light of the situation and laughs that he might use it as his next emote for Twitch.

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

Leatherface’s house location in Warzone

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
