OpTic Gaming’s Call of Duty captain Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has discussed his rivalry with former teammate, Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag.

Scump was appearing on the latest episode of The Eavesdrop Podcast, with host Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, and began stating his desire to begin streaming competitive scrims against other professional teams during the Black Ops 4 season.

When discussing the future of the OpTic Call of Duty team’s future in content creation, Scump began to look back at the content creation rivalry he had with Nadeshot while the pair were both part of the OpTic organization.

“I used to be selfish,” commented Scump. “So did Nadeshot, back in the day. We were competing against each other because we both wanted to be that guy.”

“But because you raced each other, you raised each other with that internal competition,” responded Hector.

Scump agreed with Rodriguez, but felt there was a downside to the competition: “We hindered ourselves. We did raise each other, but we raised each other to work harder against each other.”

Abner also revealed that the pair have never spoken about the rivalry, stating: “Me and Nadeshot, we haven’t really talked about this. We haven’t shot the shit about the old days. We gotta hash this out.”

Scump and Nadeshot are back on good terms again, with the pair recently attending the McGregor vs Khabib UFC event in Las Vegas. H3CZ hopes to get the pair together on a future podcast to discuss their former rivalry.

Full disclosure: OpTic CEO Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez is a minority shareholder in Dexerto Ltd

Black Ops Cold War weapons & perks changes revealed for Zombies

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
