Chicago Huntsmen star Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has revealed how long he believes he has left when it comes to competing in Call of Duty – noting that it might be longer than previously thought. 

Scump is by and away far the most popular Call of Duty pro player around, and after years of dominating the scene in both content creation and competitive matches, there have been plenty of questions surrounding his future. 

The 24-year-old commands a following that could easily see him step away from competitive CoD and dominant the streaming world, and he continues to play, fans have quizzed him on when he’s going to step away. Abner has, previously, spoken about the possibility of retirement but keeps on playing.

Scump has been dominating the CoD scene for almost a decade.

During his second individual appearance on Hector ‘HECZ’ Rodriguez’s Eavesdrop Podcast, the Chicago Huntsmen star once again fielded questions about his future, revealing that he is contracted to play through the next game. Though, he believes he should last a little longer than that. 

“Realistically, I think, I don’t know.. my max would probably be like four years, my max like left,” Scump said, citing his role as an SMG player and needing to be quick on the trigger. “Yeah, I would say like four years maybe, it’s hard to tell, you can’t put a pin in it and be like this will be my final year,” he added.

Topic begins at 23:11

The CoD World Champion noted that it will also depend on a few other factors – mainly the state of Call of Duty and whether or not another game comes along that really catches his eye. 

“I would say like four years, maybe longer depending on how I’m doing at that point,” he continued. “I’ve always said, as long as I’m still playing at a level where I know I’m not costing my team, I would like to continue playing and I think that the last two years, I’m still playing at a level that is benefiting my team.”

Scump had previously said that he believed he only two or three years left, but, that appears to have changed – giving himself an extra year or so. 

New faces have attempted to knock him off his perch as one of the most feared SMG players around, but it’ll take some serious going to match what the King has done up until this point in his career.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
