OpTic Gaming’s Call of Duty Captain Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has announced that he is going to start streaming again.

Scump stopped content creation during the Call of Duty: World War 2 season, choosing to focus his time and efforts on competing with his OpTic Gaming squad. 

But with Call of Duty in its off-season, Scump has confirmed his intention to stream the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Blackout beta, starting on Monday, September 10.


Scump certainly isn’t short on offers from people to team with during his first stream back. OpTic Gaming owner Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez threw his name into the hat, replying with “we teaming?” to Scump’s original tweet.

Meanwhile, 100 Thieves CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag wants to reunite with his former teammate for the release of the Blackout beta, requesting to play duos with the 23 year old American in a throwback to the 2013 Black Ops 2 season!


Scump seemingly accepted Nadeshot’s offer, to the delight of their fans, with replies of “IT’S HAPPENING” and”Miss this duo so much” coming from those who will be eagerly watching the stream later on. 


Call of Duty’s new Blackout mode is Activision’s answer to the popular battle royale genre. Taking place on a map made up of some of the most recognisable multiplayer maps of all time, players must battle against their opponents to be the last man, or squad standing.

The Blackout beta goes live on Monday, September 10 at 10am PDT (1pm EDT, 6pm BST) for PlayStation 4 players, while the Xbox One and PC versions of the beta don’t go live until September 14. Full details about the beta are available here.


Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
