Scump reveals hilarious reason why Crimsix’s name is banned in his chat

Professional Call of Duty player Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has explained the hilarious reason why viewers in his chat can’t send a message including the name of his former teammate, Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter.

Scump and Crimsix find themselves on opposing rosters heading into the 2020 Modern Warfare season, with Abner representing the Chicago Huntsmen franchise, while Porter heads to the Team Envy-owned Dallas Empire.

The pair were long-time teammates on OpTic Gaming though, prompting some to question why they weren’t able to type “Crimsix” in Scump’s chat, and while some may have assumed this was due to the bad blood between Porter and his former teammates, the actual reason is much funnier than that.

Scuf GamingCrimsix and Scump saw huge success together on OpTic Gaming.

While playing Gunfight matches with Huntsmen teammate Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, a member of Scump’s chat asked why Crimsix was a banned word, much to the delight of the 24-year-old.

“Why is Crim a banned word?” read the CoD pro from his chat. “Crim literally raged last year and banned his own name in my chat during scrims.”

Unsurprisingly, FormaL burst into laughter, as Scump continued: “Yes, he did! That’s why Crim is banned. He was like, ‘Seth, f**k dude, they literally hate me! I’m trying to get better and they hate me!’”

Last year’s Black Ops 4 season turned out to be the final year that Crimsix and Scump would team together, with victory at CWL Las Vegas the highlight in a season where OpTic Gaming struggled to find top form consistently, watching 100 Thieves and eUnited dominate much of the year.

The pair did share some incredible times together though and brought home OpTic’s first World Championship in 2017.

With Crimsix now on Dallas Empire, Scump’s chat will probably be criticizing him for a different reason, although if the 24-year-old doesn’t remove his name from the Twitch ban list, they won’t be saying much about the “Crimbot” at all.

How to glitch outside Nuketown ’84 for free kills in Black Ops Cold War

While Nuketown has appeared in more Call of Duty titles than any other map, the new Black Ops Cold War variant has come with a frustrating issue that allows players to break out of the map.

Nuketown has long been a fan favorite in the CoD franchise. The close-quarters map is chaotic from start to finish as players jump right into the action without having to track enemies down. It’s now in its eighth version, though the new iteration has come with a painful exploit.

If you’ve played on an older version of the map before, you’ll likely know every little nook and cranny. Nuketown ‘84 still has one of these little secrets intact as RC-XD users can race around outside the map on a special path.

Typically, this is a good way to get your explosive buddy across to the other side of the map. It can travel safely and emerge without alerting nearby enemies. However, it turns out players can now access this space as well.

This area has only ever been accessible for the tiny vehicle, until now. Players have discovered a way to break through the traditional boundaries and camp outside of the map for some of the easiest kills you’ll ever see.

From this glitched location, you get a clear line of sight to the side of one of the houses. The most broken part of being here though is that your presence doesn’t have any impact on enemy spawns. They can still appear directly in front of you without realizing, leading to some effortless kills.

Dexerto staff personally encountered this issue while playing on PC. There appears to be a location right at the edge of the playable space that avoids the ‘out of bounds’ instakill effect.

Wedging yourself between some cacti and the fence will keep you alive outside of the map. Obviously, this can be shut down after a few kills once players realize your position. However, it could be too little too late.

Treyarch is yet to address this particular issue. However, something so critical is sure to be fixed in the very near future.

In the meantime, make sure you’re keeping an eye out for pesky enemies well outside the map.
