Pokimane speechless after leaking her email during first-ever CoD stream

Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys was left visibly stunned after she accidentally left her Call of Duty account information open while going to refill her water bottle during a live broadcast.

On May 29, the Moroccan-Canadian streamer was in the process of setting up her copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare – a game series that she has never played during her illustrious broadcasting career, let alone her whole life.

“To everyone asking, yes – this is my first time playing Call of Duty,” she revealed. “Any sort of Call of Duty.”

Pokimane had never played a Call of Duty game before.

Considering the fact Anys is 24-years-old and the first-ever Call of Duty game released in 2003, there are seventeen years worth of games she missed out on.

“I never played it on console or anything else. I’ve never played Warzone,” she added. “So, it’ll be fun. And the thing is, I don’t even watch Call of Duty really, so I don’t even know what the gameplay is like because I don’t really watch stuff until I know how to play it.”

That was all going to change, however, as this was the day Pokimane was going to answer the call. Sadly, her first time ended up being a little awkward.

As the game installed, the streamer went to get a drink, but left a screen with her email and Activision ID fully visible for her chat, resulting in a ton of incoming friend requests – and who knows how many emails.

Upon coming back to her computer, the streamer saw what she had done and put her hands to her head in frustration. Note: Dexerto has cut the portion of the clips where Anys’ personal information was leaked.

Eventually, however, after a good dozen seconds of Poki burying her head in her hands, a small smile emerged on her face and she carried on like any good soldier.

“You know, I’m almost not mad because it’s comical for me to go AFK at that exact moment,” she laughed. “It’s f**king comical.”

While her first-time deploying into the world of Modern Warfare wasn’t exactly glamorous, it’s still good to see that Pokimane was able to pick up self up, even though she may need to completely change emails after this incident.

Pokimane isn’t the first big name to leak an email on-stream. Notably, PewDiePie had this happen to him twice. It just goes to show that streamers should always be careful with what they show to their viewers.

Best Krig 6 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Krig 6 has slowly been creeping into the meta spotlight after the recent FFAR and M16 nerfs, so find out which attachments you should equip to increase this gun’s lethality. 

This deadly assault rifle delivers excellent precision and deals great damage across all ranges, making it one the most viable assault rifles in the current meta. This full-auto AR boasts excellent weapon control and quick reloads, while its methodical fire rate helps minimize recoil and keeps your shots accurate. 

It may not deal as much damage as the game’s AK-74, but its excellent accuracy more than makes up for that. The Krig 6’s minimal recoil also allows it to excel across Black Op’s Cold War’s larger-scale maps and modes. Whether it will be a meta defining gun when it’s added to Warzone remains to be seen, but it’s more than likely that this gun will likely prove to be a popular pick. 

In order to help you get the most out of the Krig 6, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

Best Krig 6 loadout

KRIG 6
Activision / Treyarch
The Krig 6 barely has any recoil when kitted out with these attachments.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Krig 6 in Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex
  • Infantry Compensator 
  • 19.7” Ranger
  • SOF Target Designator
  • Foregrip
  • 40 RND
  • Airborne Elastic Wrap
  • Raider Stock 

By picking the Gunfighter wildcard, you can equip a total of eight attachments which gives you a great deal of flexibility when it comes to building the perfect loadout. The Millstop Reflex provides the Krig 6 with a clean sight that doesn’t clutter the screen, allowing you to easily spot enemies at a distance. 

Combine this with the 60% reveal distance from the SOF Target Designator and you’ll be able to snap onto the most well-hidden foes. After all, visibility remains a big problem in Black Ops Cold War, so having any attachments that help improve this is huge. 

Next up is the Infantry Compensator and Foregrip which diminish horizontal recoil by 27%, which makes the Krig 6 incredibly accurate. In fact, the recoil on this setup is so minimal that it effectively allows you to beam opponents across all distances. 

Bullet Velocity is also incredibly important in Black Ops Cold War and it is often the reason why the hit detection of certain weapons can feel a little off. After all, being able to quickly drop your foe before they can even react is always going to be beneficial, so the 19.7” Ranger is a must.

The Krig 6 is steadily climbing up the popularity rankings.

Another top pick is the Airborne Elastic Wrap. This incredible attachment increases the Krig 6’s aim down sight time, gives you 90% Flinch Resistance, and allows you to aim while going prone. ADS speed is just as important in Black Ops Cold War as it was in Modern Warfare, particularly for any AR loadouts that want to be competitive against the game’s SMGs. 

Meanwhile, the added 90% Flinch Resistance also keeps your shots accurate even when you take damage. This will often enable you to counter your attackers with high precision shots. The Raider Stock also increases the AR’s Sprint to Fire time and Aim Walking Speed, giving you a great reactionary playstyle that can quickly melt foes in close-quarter firefights. 

While the 50 RND mag attachment offers a great deal of firepower, its reduction in ADS time makes it less optimal for standard multiplayer. As a result, the 40 RND variant has been used instead. The Krig 6 is capable of melting through multiple foes in a few bullets, so the 40 RND mag is more than enough.
