Nadeshot top 3 snd cod ghost player any day, complete ass cheeks in the respawns though lmfao...
Ethan Peters (16 days ago)
Morale of the story, Optic were assholes to Nade from the start and never really gave him a break. Sidelines, to ultimatums. To blaming him for their losses. They were so mean to him that he left for greener pastures

videos like these are always really important to me because nadeshot was such an enormous part of my childhood. i would literally spend hours and hours just watching his videos over and over when i was in middle school and early high school. it brings back so much nostalgia just thinking about nadeshot! great video man!

He might not be one of the greatest cod players of all time but he sure as hell did more than anyone else to expand the comp scene and make it what it is today. A true fucking legend and an inspiration.

Plahdo (3 months ago)
That's just how OG fans are and don't realize how toxic they're being, they chased Nadeshot away because he was the scapegoat and now Karma who replaced him is gone after years of being their scapegoat... and now the scapegoat is already turning out to be Methodz after their first event. True fans don't act like that.
