Symfuhny unloads on Reddit users over Warzone bot lobby accusations

Popular Warzone streamer, Symfuhny, responds to players accusing him of being in bot lobbies when he plays.

Streamer Symfuhny unloaded on Reddit users who were indirectly accusing him of exploiting bot lobbies.

Professional-level Warzone players are the best of the best. Often, other players will underestimate their skillsets (or overestimate their own), assuming top players must be cheating the system.

This belief often results in unwarranted toxicity against streamers, as Symfuhny saw in his Twitch chat recently. Comments poured in from viewers accusing him of being in “bot lobbies” and “reverse boosting for easier games”.

Symfuhny then went to Reddit to check where this sudden toxicity spike was coming from and landed on the below thread from user Tofazzz.

The user claimed that it feels like the professionals play in easier games, and their opponents constantly look dumb. Symfuhny responded on stream by stating “The reason you don’t find these players, is because you’re the player that’s getting rolled! You are the player that’s getting 3 tapped! Your K/D is only 1.23 because you suck!”

Additionally, a few comments flooded in agreeing with the original poster, among them, the one below.

In response to the comment, Symfuhny responded stating “yes, they (streamers) look better because you suck! Use your brain! If a streamer is way better than you, the players they are playing are going to look worse!”

A Common Misconception

It appears Symfuhny was airing out the frustration of players simply accusing drastically better players of cheating in games because they are not as good as them. This is commonplace in competitive gaming, with many players opting to refuse to believe players are better than them.

For Warzone, many of the top players are significantly better than other “top players”. Many of them are part of the .01% and are drastically better compared to the other players in the top 5%.

What should we learn from Symfuhny’s comment? The streamers are at the top for a reason. They’re just that good. They’ll make other great players look terrible because they’re better. Someone isn’t automatically “cheating” because they’re better.

Warzone Season 5 Rage Serum Field Upgrade explained

Warzone Season 5 will introduce a brand-new Field Upgrade to players known as Rage Serum, which has some pretty astounding effects.

The fifth and final season of Warzone will introduce a variety of content, one of which is a brand-new Field Upgrade called Rage Serum.

Activision officially announced the details concerning the final season of Warzone and Vanguard titled Last Stand. The Warzone Season 5 update is looking to pass the torch to Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 with a bang.

As well as dramatic map changes in which Peak has erupted, the devs have also decided to introduce some new weapons, Operators, and a Field Upgrade to spice things up.

This new Field Upgrade is called Rage Serum, and it has the potential to become a fan favorite, and possibly impact the meta.

According to the Season 5 Call of Duty blog, Warzone’s Rage Serum Field Upgrade will allow Operators to “become violently unstable, resulting in a viciously effective boost to your close-quarters fighting.”

Players will gain “superior melee damage, increased lunge distance, and enhanced stun power while fighting with melee weapons or fists.”

However, there are negatives to this Field Upgrade, as it will make your Operator noisier and give players extra recoil while stunned.

For those familiar with the Black Ops 2 campaign, this Rage Serum sounds very familiar to the “Time and Fate” mission, which saw players take control of Menendez as he goes on a rage-induced rampage after his sister dies.

For those unaware, Menendez will be an Operator in Warzone Season 5, so this would make sense to see in-game. We’ll have to wait and see, but it sounds like Rage Serum will allow players to go on a similar rampage to Menendez’s.

All Vanguard & Warzone weapons arriving in Season 5

Here are all of the weapons coming to both Call of Duty: Vanguard & Warzone Pacific in the Season 5 update.

Vanguard and Warzone Season 5 weapons

Vanguard and Warzone Season 5 Last Stand will bring five new weapons to both games as players get set to experience the end of a Call of Duty era.

Anticipation for Vanguard and Warzone Season 5 is on the rise after Activision confirmed that it would be the final season for both games. A new season’s roadmap always reveals the exciting new content that will be available to players once the update goes live and Season 5 is no different.

Thanks to the Season 5 roadmap we know that Last Stand will see the return of classic Call of Duty villains as well as new weapons to unlock. Here’s a look at the new weapons that will be making their way to Warzone and Vanguard Season 5.

Every new weapon in Warzone and Vanguard Season 5

Vanguard and Warzone Season 5 will see the devs stick to a similar formula while also trying out some unique concepts. Players won’t be surprised to discover that a brand-new post-launch SMG will enter the fold during Season 5.

Warzone Vanguard Season 5 EX1 and RA 225

Despite this expected discovery, the devs have decided to break the mold by delivering the EX1 Energy Rifle. There currently isn’t a weapon in either game quite like it, so it will be interesting to see how it fits in.

The EX1 and RA 255 will be available at the start of Season 5 on August 24, while the Valois Revolver is expected shortly after. Meanwhile, the BP50 and Lienna 57 will arrive with the midseason update.

EX1 Energy Rifle

This new Season 5 weapon is unique in that it leaves ballistics behind in favor of a battery system that powers its energy beams. The EX1 is a prototype weapon that shoots red beams and it is said to be effective at long-range.

While you’ll never run out of ammo, the weapon does exhibit a cooling-off period after a charge is depleted. This cool-down essentially acts as the EX1’s reload mechanism.

It’s going to be interesting to see the weapon’s attachments and how they improve the EX1’s attributes. According to the devs, “its Gunsmith potential is impressive, with options for every scenario.”

RA 225 SMG

If the RA 225 is anything like the Vanguard SMGs that came before it, then it is destined to rise to the top of Warzone’s close-range meta. The Welgun, Armaguerra 43, H4 Blixen, and Marco 5, all had their time in the Warzone spotlight.

While little is known about the weapon, the devs have emphasized its lightweight design, mobility, and fast fire rate. Usually, when an SMG is lightning quick, it doesn’t pack the hardest punch, but we’ll have to wait and see if this is the case for the RA 225.

It does have some upward kick that players are going to have to get used to, but with the right attachments, this shouldn’t be an issue.

Valois Revolver Vanguard Warzone Season 5

Valois Revolver

The Valois Revolver is yet another unique addition in Season 5 thanks to its ability to act as a melee weapon and a pistol. This hybrid weapon is sure to take many enemies by surprise.

The six bullets it could hold and low damage output should prevent it from dominating either game but the ability to eliminate players with a one-shot melee attack will be a clever tactic to exploit.

BP50 & Lienna 57 Assault Rifles

While Season 5 is the final major content release for Warzone and Vanguard, players can still expect a midseason update to arrive. Warzone and Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded are set to deliver two new weapons to the games.

The weapons arriving with the midseason update are the BP50 and Lienna 57. Interestingly enough, it seems the BP50 is modeled after Modern Warfare 2’s F2000. Both weapons are Assault Rifles, which means Warzone’s long-range meta could be in for some drastic changes.

There you have it, those are the five new weapons coming to Vanguard and Warzone Season 5 Last Stand.
