The Blackout battle royale mode in the new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has been one of the most popular games on Twitch since release and streamers like Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned have learned, sometimes the hard way, not to stand too near to moving loot boxes.

The clip begins with Seagull spotting a loot box sliding down a hill after being dropped, he tells his teammate, and both of them run after to intercept the drop.

“I didn’t know they roll like that, when does it stop?” Seagull asked as he positioned himself in what he thought was a great place to open to lootbox, before it turned over and crushed him and his teammate.

After crushing Seagull the box decides to just keep on rolling for a few feet before activating, probably just to put some salt into Seagull’s wounds.

As he and his teammate laugh hysterically, Seagull manages to say “Oh my God, What a joke,” as he contemplates what exactly just happened.

This might be one of the first recorded instances of a player dying to a loot box in Blackout, and based on Seagull’s reaction it’s definitely the first time it’s happened to him.

Blackout and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has been one of the most streamed games on Twitch since it was released last week, with all kinds of streamers jumping in to try the new mode out.

Seagull has continued to stream Blackout, along with his regular Overwatch, but he’ll probably be a lot more cautious around loot boxes from now on.

Activision has officially unveiled all the details about the Haunting of Verdansk event coming to Call of Duty: Warzone, and it’s going to be packed with spooky content. To celebrate, Lionsgate is offering special Texas Chainsaw Massacre-themed content for the game, and we’ve got the details on how to unlock them.

After being leaked around a week ago, Activision has finally unveiled its Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre crossovers in Warzone. Players will soon be able to purchase bundles based on the two horror franchises in the in-game store for around $20, and they both come with the usual suspects: ew Operators skins, weapon blueprints, emotes, etc.

Players will also be able to get their hands on a couple of items themed around the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise without having to put down any cash or COD points at all if they follow some simple steps.

How to unlock the Texas Chainsaw Massacre emblem & calling card?

Unlocking these items is simple – you don’t have to do anything within the actual Modern Warfare or Warzone application to earn them. Instead, just get on their computer or mobile device, go to the film franchise’s main website and follow some easy steps in order to get a free emblem and calling card:

If players want to get their hands on Texas Chainsaw Massacre-themed items, they’ll have to follow the steps below.

After that point, Activision will send you a code for the emblem and calling card within two weeks. It is interesting to note, however, that the fine print on the website says it’ll be available in-game after November 9, 2020, which would technically be three weeks from the announcement, so it’s unknown what the case actually is.

We also don’t technically have a peek at either the calling card or emblem, so it’s anyone’s best guess as to what it actually looks like in-game. More than likely, it’ll be similar to the image seen on the site – but that’s pure speculation at this point.

We’ll update this article with more details and images when they become available.
