Summit1g can’t contain his rage after ridiculous 9 Bang death in Blackout

Summit1g felt the true power of 9 bangs in Blackout and he couldn’t hold back his anger, launching into a brutal tirade of the game.

Summit has been playing Blackout almost daily since its release on October 12, and has generally seemed to enjoy Call of Duty’s first foray into the battle royale genre.

However, like many Blackout players, there is one item particularly that Summit is not a fan of (and no, it’s not the molotov).

The 9 Bang grenade, an extremely powerful concussion/flashbang which blinds, slows and disorients players for up to 6 seconds, has a been a point of contention in the community since the Blackout beta.

Thankfully, Treyarch’s David Vonderhaar has said that changes are in the works for 9 Bangs, hinting at “less redundancy and less punishing to your mobility.”

As of right now though, 9 Bangs are still absolutely deadly, to the point where being hit by one is essentially game over. But, Summit wasn’t just angry about the effects of the 9 Bang, but from how far he was hit by it.

After dying and watching the kill cam, which actually showed another enemy killed him, not the one who through the 9 Bang, Summit1g still couldn’t regain his composure.

“It’s mind boggling dude. He fucking 9 banged me from so far, at the bottom of the fucking hill, and took two SDM shots with no armor. Like, dude, please!”

Since Summit’s main complaint seemed to be how far the 9 Bang was thrown from, it doesn’t look like that will be changed in future updates, at least judging by Vonderhaar’s hints.

And Summit1g himself knows a thing or two about throwing grenades far, as this recent clip demonstrates.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
