Tyler ‘Call of Duty squad – but he’s also an extremely successful streamer in his own right, as an incredible sub-train on June 20 proved.

TeeP first made a name for himself in the competitive Call of Duty scene as a player, and was an integral part of the legendary Complexity roster that steamrolled opposition through most of Black Ops 2 and Ghosts.

After transitioning into a coaching role, TeeP continued to stream on Twitch, and the release of Call of Duty’s battle royale mode Blackout seems to have been the catalyst for some incredible growth on his channel.

TeeP is the current coach of OpTic Gaming’s Call of Duty team.

The 26-year-old’s success was clear to see on Thursday, June 20, when thousands of viewers pledged their support to the streamer not only with their watch-time, but with cold hard cash.

Over the duration of his 14 hour stream, TeeP went on an absolutely amazing sub-train of 5,280.

This means that the streamer gained at least one new subscriber every five minutes to keep the train rolling, although with the former CoD pro amassing over 5,000 subscribers in that time period, the streamer averaged more than one new subscriber per minute.

Of course, some of these subscribers were likely gifted subs, who can buy batches of them to hand out to other viewers, but it’s still a truly remarkable feat in such a short space of time. TeeP tweeted that the day broke a number of records on his channel, and was “by far the best day I have ever had on Twitch.”

With the tier breakdown of each subscription also unknown, the amount that TeeP makes on Twitch requires a little guesswork, but assuming that they are all Tier 1 subscriptions we can guess that TeeP made at least $15,000 in the duration his stream, and likely more depending on his deal with Twitch, and the likelihood of some subscriptions being Tier 2 or 3, which cost more.

While many would ditch their coaching career in favor of their streaming success, it seems TeeP has no intention of leaving CoD esports behind, continuing to coach the OpTic team as they aim to win their second world championship this summer.

Should the 26-year-old decide that his days of strategizing are behind him though, he definitely has an incredible Twitch community to fall back on.

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.
