For the past few days, all the buzz has been surrounding the latest Call of Duty title. Activision and Treyarch wanted to put up something special for the community. They have rolled out creator codes for Modern Warfare and Warzone, however, players and streamers such as DrDisRespect aren’t really happy about it.

Creator codes are not a rare sight in the game. Fortnite Battle Royale has included creator codes for streamers to receive some added benefits in-game. This brings in money flow for those hardworking streamers who put hours to make the best content.

Now, coming back to the issue at hand, some of the top players and streamers did not receive a creator code for the new game.

Seth “Scump” Abner, one of the best Call of Duty players of all time, took to Twitter to express his views on the matter.

He wasn’t the only one who complained about the issue. DrDisRespect, Nadeshot and other streamers had the same fate. You can read some of their tweets below.

The players were mostly furious about the fact that newer streamers were handed the code over them. This wasn’t directly a take at those streamers by any means. Scump and Nadeshot have been some of the top Call of Duty content creators for a while now. Snubbing them off to give a chance to others is not quite understandable.

Allegedly, the creator code is still in beta. So, it is highly likely that more names will be added on soon. The exclusion of big names right from the start hasn’t been well-received by the community but hopefully, the developers might fix this soon.

Black Ops Cold War is being heavily-anticipated ever since the trailer dropped. And although it mainly focused on the single-player campaign, it looks like it’ll be a fun ride filled with action-packed moments.

The game is a direct sequel to the original Black Ops and it set in the 1980s when the Cold War was at its peak. We aren’t getting the multiplayer reveal as of yet. The developers are keeping it on hold till September.
