xQc stunned by toxic Call of Duty players in Black Ops Cold War

Twitch Star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to trash talk, but what he heard while playing Call of Duty: Cold War was enough to throw even him for a loop.

Call of Duty: Cold War is one of the hottest games on Twitch right now, and xQc certainly seems to have gotten a taste of the series’ legendary chatroom toxicity.

We’re not saying that this is a symptom of the CoD community overall, but the series has built up a reputation for being host to some hilariously venomous lobbies. xQc found this out firsthand while sitting in a lobby, and after getting knocked out.

The face when the CoD lobby gets a little too lit.

Ask anyone who’s played Call of Duty for long enough, and there’s a good chance is they’ll have a hilarious story about a toxic lobby or three that they’ve been a part of over the years. Now, xQc can officially add that to his list of accomplishments as well.

During a late-night/early morning stream on November 17, Felix ran into a rowdy lobby he tried to calm down in vain, before being called out himself.

“Guys, guys, guys, it’s 3 AM on a f***ing Monday, you guys are playing Call of Duty talking shit,” the former Overwatch pro begged, to no avail, and got told to shut his mouth, just not quite with that exact term.

After this, you’d probably figure things couldn’t get more radioactive, right? Well, you would be wrong, because Felix also ran into some incredibly toxic personalities while he was playing.

After getting knocked out, xQc asked, “It was you right?” before being told in graphic detail what his assailant wanted to do to him. We won’t type the quote out here, but the clip below should give you the gist.

The Canadian does come from the wild west that can be Overwatch games, but nothing really compares to being cursed out by an absolute random in CoD.

Whether Felix will return to Black Ops remains to be seen, especially since he seems to have had the full experience during this stream alone.

Another day, another Black Ops Cold War game settings update. This time, we have the much anticipated inclusion of a Hardcore Nuketown ’84 playlist, alongside another wave of bug fixes, which actually address some of the crashing problems. Here’s what you need to know.

If you thought you were going to get by without another Black Ops Cold War game settings update, you’re sorely mistaken. Treyarch has revealed that yet another has gone live on November 25.

In short, this update is pretty small but it does add one major feature: a hardcore playlist for Nuketown ’84. The much-requested feature was surprisingly absent from the Nov 24 patch, so it’s nice to see it’s inclusion here.

In addition, a number of different bugs were also fixed, mostly relating crashes.

Treyarch’s official patch notes to follow:

MULTIPLAYER

Playlists

  • Added Hardcore Nuketown 24/7 to Hardcore tab in Quick Play.

Stability

  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur when playing Hardpoint.
  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur while pinging locations.
  • Fixed a rare crash that could occur loading into a Multiplayer match.

ZOMBIES

Progression

  • Addressed an issue that allowed players to earn more weapon XP than intended in Zombies during 2WXP events. This fix includes new general weapon XP tuning, which will result in faster overall weapon leveling in Zombies.
