Nadeshot was a large part of OpTic‘s growth, as a star member of their Call of Duty team from 2010 to 2015, pushing the brand to new levels of popularity.

Following his retirement from professional play, Damon ‘Karma‘ Barlow replaced him on the roster, and this new lineup went on to become the winningest team in the history of the esport.

Three time world champion Karma was approached by Nadeshot to join 100 Thieves.

However, due to complications with the players’ agent and clashes with OpTic parent company Infinite Esports, it has been revealed that plans were made to drop the Call of Duty team, alongside the Halo team (which was in fact dropped), in early 2018.

Thankfully for OpTic fans, these plans for the CoD team never came to fruition, as it would have seen the organization lose popular personalities like Scump and Crimsix – but Nadeshot says he would have swooped them right up.

“I just can’t fathom the thought of dropping the Call of Duty team,” Nadeshot exclaimed, “I mean, shit, I wish they would’ve, I would have signed Scump in a heartbeat.”

Nadeshot also revealed that he was attempting to recruit Crimsix, as well as Karma, during the offseason heading into Black Ops 4.

It’s known that Karma turned down the option to join 100 Thieves, largely due to the other teammates who he would have joined on the roster, choosing to rejoin OpTic instead.

Infinite Esports is expected to sell the OpTic brand to Immortals, although H3CZ is also apparently in the running to retain the organization.

Although it would have been a great opportunity for him and 100 Thieves, Nadeshot was clearly not on Infinite’s side on the decision to attempt to drop the squad, which is undoubtedly the most valuable roster in the CoD esports.

Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner were left almost speechless as streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney started hitting in “insane” sniper streak in Call of Duty battle royale Warzone.

Scump and Nade are veterans in the Call of Duty scene, and they’ve seen just about everything you could see in a CoD game after years of playing with the best of the best.

For that reason, it must be hard to truly impress them, and it makes it even more special when someone does.

While Tfue isn’t famed for his Warzone prowess, having risen to the top of Twitch thanks to his incredible Fortnite gameplay, the skills are clearly transferable, as he found himself not missing a single headshot while traversing Verdansk.

Tfue was a champion in Fortnite, and is clearly looking to prove his grit and worth again in Warzone.

Since Season 6 launched, the new SP-R208 sniper has become a favorite for players thanks to its fast ADS and precision, and Tfue made it look like the easiest gun in the world to use as he hit headshot after headshot.

The trio were running through Boneyard, with Tfue alone already at 14 kills for himself before hitting this incredible streak, and you’re not likely to see a more perfect display of in-game accuracy than this.

Sneaking up behind his enemies, Tfue hit three successive headshots to down the players, and followed them all up with headshots while they were downed, too. Not content with just that, he found two more players on the outskirts of Boneyard, including one just flying in, and hit them square in the face too, with just one bullet going stray the entire time.

Throughout, Nadeshot couldn’t believe what he was seeing, calling the former Fortnite pro “elite” while Scump simply told him that he’s “cracked.”

Finally, Nade joked that Tenney was “creating a montage” and, to his credit, it would be one of the best montage clips on any video it appeared in if it were to.
