This Tactical Unicorn Black Ops 4 weapon skin is truly fabulous (and it’s really in the game)

Call of Duty fans have always liked colorful camos and concepts for their weapons, but one particular skin that has been making the rounds on Reddit just might be the most “out there” design the franchise has ever seen.

In a Reddit thread titled ‘Welcome to Call of Duty’, an image of the GKS submachine gun with a multicolored paint job and unicorn head was shared, immediately prompting users to question whether the strange design was legitimate or not.

Well, it is, and you’ll have a chance of getting your hands on Black Ops 4’s very own ‘Tactical Unicorn’ gun through the game’s Black Market and Contraband stream system.

Players can earn various cosmetic items as they level up their Contraband, which works a lot like the Battle Pass in Fortnite, and will start receiving ‘Reserves’ (similar to Supply Drops) after the sixth tier.


However, it looks like you’ll first be granted access to another variant of the GKS, and the Tactical Unicorn has to be earned through the signature weapon challenges that unlock its ‘Mastercraft’ version.

Hollow on YouTube has uploaded a video where he does just that: 

From what we can gather, getting the signature GKS is down to luck of the draw when you earn a tier (there’s a good chance you’ll end up with something much less exciting), but we’ll keep you posted if we hear differently and can guarantee an unlock through another method.

This is arguably the most ‘cartoonish’ weapon camo that we have ever seen in a Call of Duty game and is likely to split opinions among players. We’re willing to bet that you’ll like it if you’re a Fortnite fan, though!

Which camp are you in? Is this the most fabulous weapon design that Call of Duty has ever seen or is it just too much?

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.
