YouTuber StraightUpKnives Hits Insane Throwing Knife Kill on Modern Warfare 3 He Thought Wasn’t Possible

Twitch streamer and YouTuber StraightUpKnives hit an insane throwing knife kill after years of trying and believing it was not possible.

The 2012 Call of Duty title Modern Warfare 3 was the last in the Modern Warfare trilogy, and a fan favorite in the CoD franchise, meaning when it was made backwards compatible on Xbox One recently, fans were instantly back on the classic game.

StraightUpKnives was previously best known for his Call of Duty content on YouTube, but more recently moved on to games like Pokémon Go and Fortnite.

But with MW3 launching backwards compatibility, he was back on his old game of choice, and playing the party game mode ‘All or Nothing’.

The mode equips players with only a USP .45, a tactical knife and a throwing knife. All players are also stuck with the same perks – Hardline, Extreme Conditioning and Stalker.

The first to hit 20 kills wins the game, and just as StraightUpKnives was tied with 19 kills almost every player in the lobby going for extravagant throwing knife final kills, he pulled off one he had been trying “forever”.

“So, if we hit it, we’ll see, I don’t know that it’s entirely possible – I’ve been going for it forever, and I don’t remember ever hitting it.”

So, it turns out that it was in fact possible. The game winning kill quickly went viral after being posted to Reddit, which seemed to surprise StraightUpKnives himself.

With the buzz that MW3 has generated since becoming backwards compatible, the rumors that the next Call of Duty entry in the series (after Black Ops 4) will be MW4 in 2019 seems even more likely.

While there is no confirmation of any kind yet, a number of members of the original Infinity Ward development team have returned to the studio to work on the 2019 CoD entry.

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
