Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has added some variety into his streaming schedule by giving Call of Duty Modern Warfare a whirl, but one moment in a recent game had him seeing red.

The Call of Duty Modern Warfare beta has been slowly releasing across platforms, with PC players able to get in on the action starting today. This has opened the door for a flood of new streamers to broadcast the game, with the latest release in the franchise dominating Twitch charts.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar and Ninja joined forces to try out Modern Warfare for the first time, with the two of them streaming on Twitch and Mixer respectively. However, the ghost of Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar was haunting the Fortnite star, as he died in the most unfortunate manner.

Infinity WardTimTheTatman and Ninja were playing 2v2 Gunfight together on stream today.

In a nail-biting 2v2 Gunfight match, the streamer duo had gotten out to a 5-3 lead and needed one more round to secure the game. They lost two on the trot, putting them in a sudden death scenario.

TimTheTatman was able to take down one of their foes before falling himself, leaving the rest of the round up to the low HP Ninja. The Fortnite star was prepped to throw a molotov on top of the enemy, but quickly had to duck for cover as he was rushed.

As he crouched though, he released the incendiary at the same time, burning himself alive and costing the duo the game.

The reactions from both of the streamers were priceless. TimTheTatman was in hysterics after witnessing his team mate mess up badly, while Ninja screamed at the top of his lungs in a fit of rage.

“No! Summit! No” was all the blue-haired phenom could muster, needing a moment to himself after that embarrassing play.

Ninja’s mishap is very similar to the iconic Summit play at Dreamhack Austin 2016. The CS:GO star was subbing for Splyce at the professional tournament, and was set to win their match against CLG 16-11 after winning a 1v1.

However, as he was running towards the ticking bomb, he frollocked through his own molotov used to flush out Jacob ‘FugLy’ Medina, taking himself down in the process. Splyce went on to lose the map 19-16, and the series 2-0.

Not to be ones to admit defeat in such a manner, Ninja and TimTheTatman challenged the duo who beat them to another Gunfight game. They managed to take out the rematch 6-5, vindicating themselves in the process.

However, the failed molotov will likely haunt the Mixer star for some time, and he might not ever be allowed to live it down.

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
