Marshmello And Squad Team Up To Deliver Call of Duty: Warzone Victory
Marshmello and his squad of prominent live streamers were matched against players using hacking software such as aimbot and wallhacks in literally five matches in a row. While spectating one of those cheaters, CouRage and the squad members were upset how the cheater had 26 kills like it were nothing and went on mowing down legit players left, right and centre then instantly locking onto more victims. CouRage and Marshmello seemed furious at how they were match-made into consecutive lobbies with cheaters, but eventually went on to keep their calm and secured a commendable victory with their squad later on.
In one of the rounds, Marshmello got the better of a cheater and killed him, which amused CouRage and the rest of the squad.
