Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar was enraged when he became the unfortunate victim of his Black Ops 4 crashing at a massively crucial point of his Zombies game.

Summit1g was playing Blackout alongside fellow streamer JoshOG, when the pair decided to ditch the battle royale mode and instead head to Zombies as they attempted to complete some of the game’s hidden Easter eggs.

The duo had been playing on gladiator-themed map IX for close to two hours, tackling zombies and difficult bosses, when suddenly Lazar’s screen froze and his game crashed just seconds before they were set to take on the map’s final boss.

“No! My game crashed,” yelled Summit1g in disbelief. “You’re going to fatal error me right there?” questioned the streamer, while JoshOG howled in frustration in the background.

“There was only one more boss,” bemoaned Josh, who was clearly devastated to see their hard work go to waste.

Summit1g was not impressed with Treyarch, fuming: “Call of Duty, that’s like two hours right there. Bruh. This is a full release, AAA game and you’re telling me after I did all your stupid fucking dumbass Easter eggs, that’s what happens!”

The former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro player decided to stop playing Zombies for the night, instead going back to Blackout for a few games before turning his stream off.

Summit1g isn’t the only player to get burned by Black Ops 4’s tendency to crash during Zombies, as recently 100 Thieves streamer NoahJ456 smashed a controller in rage when a similar occurrence happened to him.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
