The multiplayer reveal also showcased three new game modes. VIP Escort, Combined Arms, and Fireteam. During the gameplay showdown, Combined Arms Domination and VIP Escort were heavily focused upon.

Additionally, there were allegations that the game mode wasn’t all that ‘brand new’ anyway.

But for the King of Call Of Duty, any of this did not matter. Seth ‘Scump’ Abner of the Chicago Huntsmen was one of the participating pros. And with every game that he played, Scump only seemed to get better. It did not matter to him who he was playing against, as he rose to dominate in every single map.

Fresh out of the Call Of Duty League, it looked as if coming third this year had hit the King hard. Therefore, he seemed determined to make a comeback in the next era of Call of Duty.

Almost instantly after the reveal was over, Twitter became all about Scump.

For a professional COD player who does not take streaming seriously, Scump put many regular content creators to shame yesterday with over 70 thousand concurrent viewers.

Even Courage seemed to go back on his words after the reveal gameplay was over.

Just the first day in the Cold War MP lobby and Scump already had people raging for being the best.
