Scump reveals surprising pick for his favorite CoD game of all time

Chicago Huntsmen’s star Call of Duty player Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has revealed his top three favorite Call of Duty titles ever – with a surprising pick at number one.

Scump has been playing and competing in CoD for around a decade now, having played at the top level for almost his entire career. He’s played every CoD for hours on end, so you would imagine he has a pretty thorough understanding of each – and some opinions on them, too.

So when he revealed his three favorite CoD games of all time, viewers were a little shocked to see which game he put at number one.

Scump is one of the most well-known names in Call of Duty.

After being asked by a viewer in his Twitch stream which games were his favorite, Scump said two which are pretty commonly found at the top, Black Ops 2 and Modern Warfare 2. For many, the third is up for debate, but Scump added Modern Warfare 3 to his list, too.

What surprised fans, though, was that he added he had said his list in order – with Modern Warfare 3 ahead of both.

Typically, most would put Black Ops 2 at the top, with some having Modern Warfare 2 there instead, but naming MW3 as your favorite CoD game of all time is almost uncharted territory.

Of course, his Twitch chat started to question the decision, especially when he revealed this was in order, with viewers calling the game “overrated” or simply saying “mw3 kekw,” though Scump didn’t seem to realize that he had said anything particularly controversial.

Modern Warfare 3 was a big year for Scump, though, having joined OpTic Gaming and notched up multiple wins, forming the foundation for what would be years of dominance from the GreenWall, so there may be a lot of sentimental value in MW3.

Competitively, it was an odd year, as neither developers nor MLG made a proper professional circuit for the game. This meant that the majority of events were hosted by smaller tournament organizers, and often in Europe, but this didn’t stop the dominance of OpTic Gaming.

There is an opinion that Modern Warfare 3 was underrated by many, perhaps overshadowed by the nostalgia of the previous games, and weighed down by expectations that came with the ‘Modern Warfare’ name.

Everything from new maps to incoming Operators and plenty more has all spilled out early, with new Black Ops Cold War leaks revealing a bunch of content coming with the Season 1 update.

We’re still a few days out from the arrival of Season 1, though new Black Ops Cold War leaks are coming through almost every day. From classic modes making a return, to unique in-game events on the horizon, we’ve already got a decent idea of what to expect.

However, things haven’t stopped there. The latest set of datamined content has uncovered our first-look at Season 1 maps, Operators, and more. While the names of incoming maps may have been revealed a while back, we now have a proper look at all four additions coming soon.

Additionally, there’s also a unique Season 1 Starter pack that comes boasting some exclusive rewards. Here’s a rundown on everything we now know thanks to the latest leaks.

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 maps

Up first, we’ve got a quick look at four new locations coming in Season 1. They’re bite-sized pictures that simply reveal the theme of each new map. The first appears to be some kind of game show set as camera equipment and bright signs can be spotted throughout.

Next up looks to be a darker map, perhaps something underground or even a subway system given the briefcases nearby. It may have been an evacuation site. Only time will tell for this one.

The third map pictured seems to be a wide-open locale with some kind of rocket in the center. Maybe a testing facility or a fully-fledged launch site somewhere in the United States.

Last but not least, we have a simple map that looks to feature some amount of office space, shelving, and a patriotic statue of sorts. If earlier intel holds up, one of these new locations will be a fresh Zombies experience. The first appears to be confirmed for Gunfight only, meaning a close-quarters design for 2v2 combat. While the remaining two maps are for core multiplayer game modes.

It’s worth noting that not all of these are confirmed to be launching on day one. While the major update is set to introduce a ton of this new content, some of these maps could be drip-fed throughout the season to keep players coming back. 

First look at Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Operator Skins

What would a new Season in Call of Duty be without some fresh cosmetics? A few of your favorite Operators appear to be getting some new outfits in Season 1. First up is Woods with a new winter look, rocking some snow goggles, thick gloves, a beanie, and a coat.

Next is Sims who has a more casual look this time around. Rather than dressing the part for a mission, he’s wearing a simple top with some cool shades and a hat.

Last but not least is some love for the Warsaw Pact. Portnova has a new skin this Season with a vibrant red top and a matching beret.

Also part of the leaks is an entirely new skin that could be the level 100 unlock in the Season 1 Battle Pass.

This Operator comes equipped for battle with multiple grenades and ammunition pouches on his upper body. Not to mention an imposing mask to cover his presumably scarred face.

Another new Operator wears a gas mask, only has one eye, and could not be more intimidating in an all-black outfit. 

These come alongside a previously leaked Operator skin for Adler. There’s no way of telling how to unlock these items; some might be tied to the Battle Pass, while others could be acquired through challenges like their current variants.
