OpTic Gaming’s Seth ‘Scump’ Abner made it clear that he would be returning to more regular content creation for Black Ops 4, and it is already paying off on his Twitch stream.

The OpTic star only streamed a handful of times throughout the CoD: WWII season, and his YouTube uploads also seriously dried up, often going months without a new video.


This was a serious change from previous years, where he would stream often and upload regularly, gaining over 2 million subscribers on his YouTube channel – the most of any current pro player.

For Black Ops 4 though, Scump has been back in full content mode, streaming daily Black Ops 4 SnD tournaments, like many other of his fellow professional players.


Since Black Ops 4’s launch on October 12, in the space of just over two weeks, Scump’s subscriber count on Twitch has reached a whopping 10,000.

More remarkable still, he gained over 3,100 new subscribers in a single stream on October 27 – even more impressive given that he was competing for viewers with Doritos Bowl Blackout tournament, on the same night. On October 28, he gained another 2,500 subscribers, taking him over the 10,000 subscriber milestone. 

Averaging over 11,000 viewers per stream, Scump is rivalling many of Twitch’s biggest stars, and bodes well for the upcoming competitive season of Call of Duty, in terms of over viewership.


With impressive plays like this in Black Ops 4, while playing Search and Destroy tournaments, it’s no wonder he is attracting big numbers.

Gaining over 3,000 paying subscribers in a single stream is a feat only achieved by the very top streamers on Twitch, even the likes of Ninja and Shroud would be envious of such a number of new (not resubs) subscribers in a night of streaming.

On top of that, his YouTube content has also been constant with at least one, and sometimes two new videos a day.


It is testament to both Scump himself and to Black Ops 4. Treyarch’s latest Call of Duty title has boasted much better viewing figures in the launch period than its predecessor, WWII.

His new found resurgence on Twitch places him at number 23 on the fastest growing channel list, according to Twitch Metrics, beating the likes of full time streamer TimTheTatman, LoL developer Riot Games and fellow OpTic member CouRage, also a full time streamer.

NICKMERCS reveals his “overpowered” JAK-12 Warzone loadout

Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff is back at it again with his loadout guides and this time he has revealed his best JAK-12 setup for Call of Duty: Warzone, demonstrating just how overpowered this new shotgun is.

The JAK-12 (AA-12) is the latest gun to make an appearance in Modern Warfare and it seems to already be wreaking havoc in Warzone. This comes just weeks after Activision nerfed the Origin 12. In fact, a lot of players are now using the JAK-12 as an overpowered replacement. Not only does this deadly shotgun offer incredible amounts of close quarters burst damage, it can also make short work of any long-range opponents. 


As a result, the JAK-12 Shotgun has been picked up by both pro and casual players thanks to its fantastic kill potential. It’s certainly not hard to see why this iconic Modern Warfare 2 shotgun has been so prevalent across the frozen fields of Verdansk. If you’re after a shotgun that is both incredibly easy to use and extremely powerful, then this loadout will give you the edge needed to grab a Warzone win.

Best JAK-12 Warzone loadout

This JAK-12 loadout is an absolute monster in close-quarter firefights
  • Muzzle: Choke
  • Barrel: ZLR J-3600 TORRENT
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip 
  • Ammunition: 8-R Dragon’s Breath 

Nick’s loadout aims to bolster the JAK-12’s close-quarters damage, giving players the damage they need to wipe out multiple targets when breaching buildings. This setup is completely different from the IceManIsaac loadout we covered, which focused on using the explosive frag rounds to maximize the gun’s ranged capabilities.


While taking out foes with explosive rounds is always going to be incredibly fun, Nick’s loadout will leave your enemies burnt to a crisp. The 8-R Dragon’s Breath rounds chew through even the hardiest foes, quickly melting through any armor plates in seconds. 

Incendiary rounds continually spark heated debates in the CoD community, especially since they can hit multiple targets and greatly impede your vision when hit by them. However, this build is all about bolstering these red hot bullets. 

Both the Choke and ZLR J-3600 TORRENT create a tighter bullet spread and increase the JAK-12’s damage range, allowing you to begin firing off lethal rounds much sooner than most close-range shotgun builds. 


Meanwhile, the Tac Laser greatly increases the gun’s ADS speed. It’s unlikely that you’ll ever need to ADS with the JAK-12, but it’s good to have the option available when you wish to deliver a few molten rounds to an enemy’s head. Lastly, the loadout rounds things off with the Merc Foregrip. This trusty underbarrel attachment reduces the JAK-12’’s recoil and further reduces the gun ADS time.
