Popular Twitch streamer Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar slowly descended to near-insanity during his Black Ops Cold War reveal stream, as pro Call of Duty player Seth ‘Scump’ Abner continuously destroyed him at every opportunity.

A few select players have been able to test out the Alpha build of the upcoming Call of Duty title, including professional players and top content creators, and on September 9 they came together to showcase the game to the public for the first time.

While we saw some incredible gameplay, with huge killstreaks and high-kill games across the board, Tim wasn’t constantly impressing like some of his peers.

While obviously a talented player, Tim had one major issue while playing Black Ops Cold War: Scump. It seemed that every time Tim turned a corner, every gunfight he had, Scump was sat there waiting for him, ready to put him down and show the streamer why he’s referred to as ‘the King.’

Luckily, Redditor Trident31 was on hand to create a compilation of Tim’s epic rages, as he failed to get the best of one of CoD’s greatest ever.

“Scump, I’m literally better than you, stronger than you and better-looking than you,” he said at one point, before it started to take an angrier turn.

“Scumpii!” he screamed after dying yet again. “We get it bro, you’re a professional Call of Duty player, I’m a 30-year-old balding father, alright?!”

With each and every death at Scump’s hands, you can see Tim getting more and more impatient, and the rages get even more hilarious as a result.

Finally, he asks his chat to go in to Scump’s stream and tell him that “this isn’t the championship” and he needs to “relax” — finally buckling to the fact that maybe the world champion is just that good.

Obviously, Tim wasn’t really annoyed at Scump, but we can’t imagine he was enjoying dying to the Chicago Huntsmen player that much either. Either way, it made for some hilarious viewing.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones. 

How to fix the Warzone vehicle music glitch

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
