Trading kills in a 1v1 on Black Ops 4 SnD leads to a weird and unexpected outcome

Still in its early days of release, the new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 title has its share of glitches and flaws, one of which involves 1v1 situations in the Search and Destroy mode.

Generally in Call of Duty history, 1v1s in SnD can be intense, since the last surviving player from each team go head to head with a crucial round point at stake. 

However, an odd glitch in Black Ops 4 allows players in a 1v1 situation to trade each other, and thus giving each team an additional point to their round count.

This oddity was on display in a 5v5 match that the new look OpTic Gaming roster was playing, with Team EnVy’s Huke filling in for Karma. 

With the round count sitting at 4-2 in favor of OpTic, TJHaLy and ‘OnyxWC’ traded each other in their 1v1, with the kill-feed showing the two having eliminated each other, after which the round count showed 5-3.

On paper, even though both teams get a round, this scenario benefits the team that is ahead in the round count, since it brings that team closer to winning six rounds and claiming victory.

Even in the clip above, the excitement in the OpTic players’ voices can be easily heard, since TJ was in a 1v3 and the trade allowed them to salvage the round, even though the opposite team also earned a point. 

Perhaps the most interesting scenario would be in a round 11, in which both teams would have won five rounds and thus, theoretically, this type of trade would get both teams to six rounds. 

As of now, it is not clear whether this is a glitch or something added to the game intentionally, although it would be unlikely for Treyarch to have altered SnD in such a fundamental way.

Zlaner hilariously mocks Warzone fan after he & Dr Disrespect get killed

From tears of joy to tears of pain, a Call of Duty: Warzone player was thrilled to outduel Zlaner and Dr Disrespect until he realized that his Verdansk role model reacted by mocking him live on Twitch.

They say to never meet your heroes, but that can be hard to control when dropping into Verdansk’s randomized lobbies. As a perfect example, TikTok Warzone content creator and streamer, ‘maritimemucker,’ happened to encounter one of his longtime role models, Zlaner, on the roof of Superstore.

Mr. Mucker was running an SKS on the hot drop’s rooftop when a jump-shotting opponent rounded the corner, PP19 Bizon in hand. Mucker was able to turn, hit some jump shots himself, and outduel the foe. Excitedly, he quickly recognized that he had downed an upsurging Warzone star in Zlaner.

Afterward, maritimemucker was eager to check out his role model’s stream. But that ended up in heartbreaking fashion, as it turns out the popular streamer had mocked him right as he and the Doc were mowed down.

@maritimemuckerI don’t mean any disrespect Zlaner but you mocked my voice a lil ya know. Big fan and Kilo main now 💯 ##warzone ##Hotmics ##Zlaner ##drdisrespect ##COD♬ original sound – Maritime Mucker

As mucker shared on TIkTok and Reddit, he was shocked and grinning after killing Zlaner: “I got Zlaner, holy s**t … That is unreal … Huge fan of Z, I’ve been watching his s**t after he finally dropped that stupid Fortnite. Unreal.” 

But when he tuned into Z’s stream, he found out that the Warzone star wasn’t impressed with the 1v1 and had, instead, simply mocked Mucker’s death comms. 

Z’s duo, Dr Disrespect, was able to gun down the low-health maritimemucker, but was also quickly killed by the TikToker’s teammate. That gave Zlaner a chance to hear the death comms (as he dealt enough damage to be rewarded with the kill) and the tilted motivation to go high-pitched in mocking the smaller streamer’s excitement.

If you’re going to run into streamers in Warzone, it’ll probably be at Superstore.

In response, maritimemucker had to recognize that courtliness had been replaced by classic gamer banter: “Alright, I see how it is, Z.” 

So, of course, he proceeded not to insult Zlaner by words, but instead by alluding that the spectacled streamer looks like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

The TikToker roasted Zlaner back by comparing him to Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys.

Ultimately, though, it’s all in good fun and maritimemucker still respects Z tremendously.

When a Reddit commenter suggested that streamers shouldn’t be looked up to, the mocked duelist replied that some Warzone stars deserve the hype: “There are some genuine great streamers out there, Z is one of them.”
