Popular streamer Michael “shroud” Grzesiek tried his hand at the Black Ops 4 beta on PC, and he was tearing up the lobbies in no time, even with a tomahawk.
Shroud is often regarded as one of the finest PC gamers around, especially when it comes to first person shooters, but Call of Duty has never been his game of choice.
Formerly a professional Counter-Strike player, shroud transferred his skills to PUBG primarily, becoming the most popular PUBG streamer in no time.
And he was no slouch at the newest Call of Duty title either, starting the day off with some seriously impressive performances – and that was before he discovered the tomahawk.

One of the equipment choices, the tomahawk is an iconic weapon in Black Ops games, first appearing in 2010’s original Call of Duty: Black Ops, and is back for the fourth instalment.
You only get one to throw, but you can immediately pick it back up, as shroud discovered to his glee.
After taking out five players, and almost a sixth, with his axe, shroud did provide Treyarch with a bit of feedback, which is what the beta is for at the end of the day – “I think they made the axe a little too strong.”
And that wasn’t shroud’s only highlight from his Black Ops 4 play session, as he also got to grips with the sniper and one of the specialist abilities – Ruin’s awesome gravity slam.
This rounded off an insane TDM comeback, as shroud pulled his team back to a 75-74 win.
You can watch shroud stream daily on his Twitch Channel, where he may be back at some more Black Ops 4 over the course of the PC beta weekend.
The real treat for shroud fans will be the upcoming ‘Blackout’ battle royale mode beta in September, where shroud will get to put his PUBG skills to the test in Call of Duty.
