Skadoodle proves he can’t be trusted with grenades and helicopters on Blackout

Former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro player Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham won’t be getting a lift in a helicopter on Blackout any time soon, after the streamer made a hilarious mistake with a grenade.

The American was teaming up with Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek and Jeremy ‘anythING’ Davis when the trio decided to jump into a helicopter and fly around while they decided on what their next move would be.

Not long after they lifted off the ground and soared into the sky, an enemy helicopter appeared on the horizon, rapidly advancing on the Skadoodle and his squad.

The trio were hoping to use the helicopter to scout the map – but things didn’t quite work out that way.

The two helicopters quickly found themselves close to each other, and a battle commenced, as each team tried to take the enemy helicopter out of the sky.

Seeing an an opportunity to do some real damage, Skadoodle pulled a grenade out of his backpack, eyed up the opposing helicopter and threw it, hoping that the damage would be enough to blow it to pieces.

Unfortunately for Latham and the rest of his squad, the grenade never made it to the enemy chopper. Instead, it seemed to get stuck in their own helicopter, blowing it to smithereens and killing all three members of the squad.

“I threw it straight this time,” pleaded Skadoodle, “I threw it away from the chopper!”

Shroud wasn’t buying it, saying: “Tyler, you said that last time, you said that would never happen again,” confirming that this isn’t the first time that Latham has been involved in this kind of incident.

Perhaps Grzesiek should be a little more understanding of mistakes involving helicopters though, as he somehow managed to glitch himself under the map while trying to catch a supply drop with a chopper.

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
