Modern Warfare 2 Devs Mock Nadeshot With Iconic Meme

Modern Warfare 2 Devs Mock Nadeshot With Iconic Meme

Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag might have moved on to bigger and better things since hanging up his Call of Duty professional boots, but his ties to the game he became famous for will never be cut.

In fact, Nadeshot is among Call of Duty esports royalty, and despite not being the most decorated player ever, his role with OpTic Gaming has helped shape the competitive scene as we know it by having an undeniable influential personality that introduced thousands of fans to the esports side of the game.

Unfortunately for Nadeshot himself though, many fans remember him by a single meme, and it appears that the Call of Duty legend has now been mocked by the developers themselves.

How Does The Modern Warfare 2 Reveal Mock Nadeshot?

The HBR will always haunt Nadeshot, who pulled out the woeful Assault Rifle during OpTic Gaming's Advanced Warfare World Championships lower bracket knockout game versus FaZe Clan. While it may have been a misclick, the casters made no mistake in picking this up, and the rest is history. 

Now, the meme has resurfaced, with Seth "Scump" Abner's Twitch mod, and popular Call of Duty esports personality, "KeviSkills" joking that the weapon will return in the upcoming title.

The image is in fact a photoshop job, meaning that the HBR is not coming back - well, not from this evidence anyway, who's to say whether it will be in the full catalogue of guns upon Modern Warfare 2's launch - with the HBR from Advanced Warfare being pasted over the shotgun that was showcased during the Campaign reveal.

 

Of course, the photoshop job was enough to convince Nadeshot himself, who immediately responded with a Thanos gif, taunting fans that the gun is akin to the Infinity Stones and that he'd be a demon on the game once again.

Having seen Nadeshot get excited by the meme, it took no time for the Call of Duty League development team to chime in by suggesting that he should be subbed in for his own Los Angeles Thieves team for next season

Unintentionally, the CDL social media warriors may have even jibed at the LA Thieves' head coach Jordan "JKap" Kaplan, who became notorious for making roster changes during the Black Ops Cold War season and has yet to find a winning recipe in Vanguard either. 

It's a shame that the HBR isn't back, as LA Thieves could probably do with some Nadeshot spirit and leadership, even if he isn't quite up to scratch on the talent side of things anymore.
