Summit1g blows up himself, Ninja & Dr Lupo in ultimate Warzone fail

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was left speechless during the $50,000 Code Green tournament in Call of Duty: Warzone after he and Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar dropped out of the sky, as their helicopter suddenly blew up.

The two streamers, who host regular livestreams on Mixer and Twitch respectively, came together to form what you would think to be a perfect combination in CoD’s latest battle royale competition – linking up with Ben ‘Dr Lupo’ Lupo for the event. However, it didn’t all quite go to plan.

Summit has had his fair share of hilarious gaffes in the past, including setting himself alight in multiple titles – most notably in a CounterStrike: Global Offensive’s DreamHack tournament in Austin, 2016 – but this one might be up there with the very best.

Helicopters are just one of many vehicles in Call of Duty: Warzone.

The three took to the skies in one of Warzone’s choppers, eyeing up enemies on the ground, and it didn’t take long for the leader of the 1G Squad to make a fatal error.

After spotting a few opponents on the ground near Verdansk International Airport, trying to plot their escape in a truck, summit pulled out his rocket launcher and thought it would be a good idea to blast them before they got away. Moments later, the group were shocked to see they had fallen to the ground and were all eliminated from the game.

“WHAT?” Summit shouted, before realizing what he had done. “Dude, what just happened?” Ninja added, clearly shocked by what had transpired.

Summit replied: “I… I rocketed us. I didn’t know you couldn’t shoot a rocket out a helicopter, did you guys? I’m sorry. I thought it was fine, I was locking onto a truck, I thought it was fine.”

The streamer tried to further explain his decision to pull out the launcher, but the sounds of laughter didn’t die down for a few moments. He quickly dropped back into the Gulag, picked up a kill and returned to the action.

This fail might have caused some brief embarrassment for the streamer, but he took it on the chin and did laugh it off in the end. After all, it’s not the first time this type of thing has happened on his Twitch channel.

In terms of taking positives from the hilarious situation, while it might have cost him a life this time around in a tournament situation, it will serve as a reminder not to do the same in future streams.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
