Chicago Huntsmen star Seth ‘Scump’ Abner has made the bold claim that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is “the worst CoD ever,” explaining his reasoning in a heated tirade against the franchise’s current title.

Call of Duty gets a new game each year, and with that comes a new set of maps, rules and guns for pro players to get used to – but it seems the current one isn’t working that well for Scump, as he has claimed that “Warzone saved it so hard.”

Modern Warfare has been somewhat of a divisive title among the CoD community, despite the fact that it continues to be a record-breaking money spinner for Activision.

Scump claims that Warzone “saved Modern Warfare so hard.”

The professional players are often some of the most outspoken when it comes to things they want changing or fixed within each CoD title, and Modern Warfare is no different – but now, Scump has well and truly laid into the game.

The discussion came about in a Chicago Huntmsen YouTube upload, in which members of the Huntsmen and NRG organization as a whole created a tier list for their favorite – and least favorite – Call of Duty titles of all time.

As the group discussed the likes of Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops 2 as “god tier” titles, the time finally came to judge Modern Warfare, and Scump was the first to speak up.

“Trash. Right in the trash,” he said, much to everyone’s surprise. “If Warzone didn’t come out on this game, one of the worst CoDs ever made.”

After the others asked what it was about the game that rubbed Scump the wrong way, he said: “it’s counter-intuitive. It’s a squad-based spawn system… it’s the worst Call of Duty ever made. It might be the worst competitive CoD ever.”

He went on to add the fact that there is no Dead Silence perk and that the maps are “horrible,” saying that there is “not a single good map” in Modern Warfare.

The verdict is a pretty damning one from the biggest name in the world of Call of Duty, but Scump and the rest of his peers made sure to reiterate that Warzone is an incredible game, saying that it “saved Modern Warfare.”

Chicago Huntsmen have been one of the best teams in Modern Warfare so far but, even so, it seems as though frustrations are growing, but they’ll have to keep at it if they truly believe they can beat Atlanta FaZe.

Black Ops Cold War Zombies crafting table: everything you can make

Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode includes a number of different additions and changes but one of the biggest is the upgrades that have been made to the crafting system, which is now more refined than previous titles. Here’s what you need to know.

With Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch has overhauled the Zombies experience to include a slew of new features, as well as a seemingly brand new storyline. The mode is very different when it comes to its previous entries, while still keeping the same spirit and concepts that fans have loved for years now.

One of the bigger changes to the mode, beyond the exfil function, is the game’s new crafting table feature, which allows players to make everything from grenades and equipment to scorestreaks. Here’s how it works.

The crafting table allows players to get equipment and scorestreaks using salvage.

While crafting tables have appeared in previous Zombies entries in one way, shape, or form, this overhaul in Black Ops Cold War completely changes up how it’s used.

Instead of players having to roam around the map, searching for specific parts, and then returning to the table to build the item, players now collect salvage and random parts from Zombies when they’re killed. The more salvage you have, the better items you’ll be able to build.

For example, 50 pieces of salvage will get you allow you to build a bow, while 250 will get you in control of a Chopper Gunner.

What items are available in the Crafting Table?

Better items, like the Chopper Gunner, will cost more salvage.

Right now, there seem to be four Tactical items, five Lethal items, and five support items (scorestreaks). Each item can help you in a different way in-game and most are based on items featured in the base Multiplayer mode.

The only exception to that rule is the Monkey Bomb, which obviously returns from previous Treyarch Zombies titles.

  • Tactical
    • Stim shot
    • Stun grenade
    • Decoy grenade
    • Cymbal Monkey (Monkey Bomb)
  • Lethal
    • Tomahawk
    • Frag grenade
    • Semtex grenade
    • Molotov
    • C4
  • Support
    • Combat Bow
    • Sentry Gun
    • War Machine
    • Self-Revive
    • Chopper Gunner

Crafting Table locations in Die Maschine

While Crafting Tables don’t require anything to unlock, they seem to be few and far between on Die Maschine. There’s one in the main spawn room, allowing players quick access to a table in the early game, another table is right outside the underground facility’s automated doors, while a third is located in the particle accelerator room itself.

This means that if players want to build some equipment, they’ll have to make their way to those three stations. There could be more around the map but right now, those seem to be the only options for players.

Here’s hoping that subsequent maps have more tables and that more items get added to each crafting station.
