Scump in disbelief as bizarre Warzone bug puts gas in the Gulag

One of the all time Call of Duty greats, Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, was left absolutely speechless after a bizarre Warzone bug put him in the thick of the gas – despite the fact that he was in the Gulag.

It’s fair to say that Scump has just about seen it all throughout his Call of Duty career, but even he simply couldn’t believe what was happening as this strange glitch cost him a Gulag win in Warzone.

The new battle royale game has faced a number of bizarre bugs in the past, but this has got to be one of the weirdest that players have seen yet.

While coming up against Scump in the Gulag is a pretty daunting prospect, his opponent this time got very lucky as the bug did half of the work for him.

As you can see in the clip below, there appears to be some confusion as Scump is pulled into, let out from and once again dragged back into the Gulag. If that wasn’t enough, when he is finally allowed to fight for redeployment, the gas is actually in the Gulag and swiftly eating away at his health.

His health was already diminishing before the buzzer even went off to start his 1v1 fight, and he actually nearly got the better of his opponent before being taken out.

By the looks of it, the gas wasn’t affecting the enemy player at all, giving them a significant advantage from the offset.

A wide-eyed Scump could do nothing but scream “What was that?” as his team was forced to gather the $4500 needed to bring him back – hopefully, this time, bug-free.

This bug likely isn’t completely unique, but we can’t say we’ve ever seen anything else like it in Warzone. Infinity Ward will want to pay close attention to this to make sure it doesn’t happen again, because it could become seriously frustrating if it becomes more common.

Envoy’s AK74u Black Ops Cold War loadout after MP5 nerf

OpTic Chicago star player Dylan ‘Envoy’ Hannon has unveiled his go-to AK74u class in Black Ops Cold War, as a potential replacement for the nerfed MP5.

When Cold War first dropped, the MP5 was perhaps the most popular weapon in the game, able to excel across most ranges with minimal recoil and damage drop-off.

That said, a nerf came in for the weapon that increased its recoil and made it less effective than before, leaving players to look for alternatives.

While he and other pros will likely be keeping MP5 loadouts for their close-quarters fights, Envoy has shown off his ideal AK74u loadout that he plans on using in-game when the opportunity arises.

The AK74u could be the perfect MP5 alternative.

The 74u definitely seems to be second in line in terms of the game’s submachine guns, behind only the MP5, so if you feel like the nerf has thrown you off, you might want to give this loadout some consideration.

Here’s what Envoy stacks on his AK-74u to compete against the top pros:

  • Muzzle: Spetsnaz compensator
  • Barrel: 9.3” VDV Reinforced
  • Underbarrel: Spetsnaz Speedgrip
  • Handle: Speed Tape
  • Stock: No Stock

Of all his class setups, this is the only one Envoy has named, calling it “Speed” — so you know exactly what you’re getting from this one.

As with his other classes, and as required by his role on OpTic, Envoy carries a 1911 pistol in his back pocket, and for equipment, he takes a Trophy System, Semtex, and a Smoke Grenade, perfect for rushing objectives or holding off potential lanes from enemies.

If you like playing aggressively with an SMG, this might be what you want to go for, especially if you’re not loving the post-nerf MP5. And, given the past couple of years, Envoy is definitely somebody you want to listen to when it comes to SMG gameplay.
