Streamer drama as Destiny calls out WackyJacky for tweet comparing BO4 Blackout and PUBG

In a bit of drama between Twitch streamers, Destiny called out WackyJacky for a recent tweet comparing Black Ops 4’s Blackout with PUBG.

The aim of WackyJacky’s tweet is to compare the two games but his inherent bias as a PUBG player comes through in the language he uses to compare the games, despite trying to take a neutral position at the end.

Destiny, who is banned from Twitter, pulled up the tweet on his stream.

“Firstly, PUBG’s gunplay is not ‘very complicated,’ how embarrassing for you to tweet something that fucking stupid,” he said while highlighting WackyJacky’s tweet. “What a fuckin jerk-off. This is like ‘oh I’m going to do both sides but really the other side sucks.’ Like fuck off, what a dumb fucking tweet.”

Destiny is fair to call out WackyJacky’s bias. The latter only focuses on PUBG with all of his channel’s videos being in the game.

As such, his audience is very PUBG centered and the tweet definitely takes some liberties with hyperbole.

While PUBG may have a bit more complicated gun system, Blackout is brand new and will continue evolving, as Treyarch has shown with multiple updates since launch. As such, it’s a bit too early to pit the two games as polar opposites this early in the lifespan of Blackout.

In addition, calling one game casual and the other competitive is a pretty clear indicator of where WackyJacky’s true feelings lie and Destiny has a point in calling out his bias.

Modern Warfare & Warzone Oct 28 update nerfs JAK-12 shotgun: patch notes

A new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone patch, deployed on October 28, nerfs Season 6’s JAK-12 shotgun while addressing a few bugged issues across Verdansk and multiplayer playlists.

The R9-0 shotgun with Dragon’s Breath rounds may be the most popular shottie in Call of Duty right now, following nerfs to the Origin-12, but it’s not the one Infinity Ward is most concerned with fixing. Instead, the developers have tuned the JAK-12, explicitly addressing two of its attachments: the Drum Mags and FRAG-12 Ammo.

While players, and particularly Warzone fans, may feel that the R9-0 is the hefty close-quarters gun most worthy of adjustments, Infinity Ward have gotten ahead of the curve and looked to fix its recent peer. The two nerfs to the JAK-12 contrastingly impact its mobility when stocked with a drum and its firing rate when stocked with the somewhat-recently buffed shotgun slugs.

Elsewhere, the developers have made some changes to playlists due to bugs and fixed some exploits. Unfortunately, Shipment still remains off of the menu.

In Season 6, Infinity Ward buffed shotgun slugs so that they would feel more accurate and register hits at further ranges. This, coupled with the surprising efficiency of the JAK-12’s drums, likely prompted the nerfs to both sorts of ammunition attachments. But, with 8-R Dragon’s Breath rounds still available, the gun hasn’t been rendered unusable.

As for the other adjustments made with this patch, they mostly surround smaller bugs and exploits. In Verdansk, a Warzone bunker has been reopened, a Zombie Royale exploit has been fixed, and Durable Gas Masks have been removed (but they were already very rare anyway). In multiplayer, the pumpkin heads are back in action while Snipers Only (TDM) has been removed from the playlist due to a bug, with Gunfight – Snipers Only (3v3) taking its place.

October 28 full patch notes

WEAPONS:

  • JAK-12:
    • Reduced movement and ADS speed on JAK-12 Drum Mags
    • Reduced rate of fire on JAK-12 FRAG-12 ammo
    • Updating the JAK-12 FRAG-12 ammo description to say ‘slugs’

GENERAL FIXES:

  • Fix for an issue where the code for Bunker 3 wasn’t functioning as intended
  • Fix for an issue with the Riot Shield that would only occur when players obtained the pumpkin head after getting 3+ kills (pumpkin heads are back on!)
  • Fix for an exploit in Zombie Royale
  • Temporarily removing the Durable Gas Masks from Warzone
  • Removing Snipers Only (TDM) while we fix a bug. We’ll be replacing this mode with Gunfight – Snipers Only (3v3)
