Is Cypher’s camera the most bugged ability in Valorant? Yet another Cypher exploit has been discovered that allows players to place the camera in midair. All you need to do is to pick Cypher and find a teammate who knows where the G key is.

Cypher’s camera is widely regarded as one of the most useful abilities in the game. It can be used to scout out enemies from a safe distance and provide information to your team without putting the player at risk.

While some players have discovered some pretty cool Cypher cam spots, others have found placements that have proven to be pretty game-breaking. And this new one is almost definitely going to require a hotfix.

Riot have had a few problems with patch 1.11 already, to the point they had to revert to the previous patch, so this discovery is probably the last thing they wanted on their already full plate.

How to get an airborne Cypher cam in Valorant

Player u/bo0kel shared this video displaying their discovery of this Cypher glitch.

It seems that all you need to do when playing Cypher is get a teammate to chuck their gun into the air in the spot you want your cam, time your click and voila, you have the ultimate portable camera.

Unlike a lot of exploits, which are only useful in specific situations, this one could be used at pretty much any time.

It’s been possible to place Cypher cams in some strange spots before, but this one takes the cake. It’s safe to say this opens up almost unlimited options for Cypher players.

Riot will almost certainly patch this out of the game quickly, so have fun with it while you can. Well, as long as you mess around with it in a custom game with friends: please don’t do this in competitive play or you could have a ban to deal with.

Call of Duty

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.

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.
