Seth “Scump” Abner, a legendary Call of Duty player, revealed on January 17 that he would be hanging up his guns with immediate effect and starting his retirement sooner than anticipated. Here is a quantitative assessment of one of the most lucrative esports careers. The Call of Duty community has long referred to Scump as “The King,” and for good reason.
He is not only one of the most talented individuals to ever play in Call of Duty esports, but he also became a content sensation that attracted a lot of viewers to the competitive scene. So, this is exactly how Scump’s legendary career unfolded before his heartbreaking retirement.
How Many Titles Did Scump Take Home?
Scump won 30 championships during his Call of Duty career, starting with his first victory in 2011 and ending with his last victory in 2022. Along with World War 2 and Cold War, he also won titles across ten different genres every year from Black Ops 1 through Modern Warfare II (2022).
This includes the well-known battle royale game Warzone, in which Scump defeated some of the game’s best rivals to take first place in the 2021 Solo Yolo event in the World Series of Warzone. In addition, he won two gold medals at the X Games, won the Call of Duty world championship for the first time in 2017, participated in 95 events, and made 41 appearances in the grand finals.
How Much Cash Did Scump Receive As A Prize?
Scump has earned a total of $1,186,505.35 over his career, making him one of the highest-paid players in Call of Duty history.
Infinite Warfare, where he and his OpTic dynasty squad dominated and earned $261,250.00 over the course of the season, was the game in which he made the most money. This excludes any wage income, which for his latter seasons of play is widely thought to have exceeded $500,000 annually.
Scump Career Stats
Scump has continuously been a strong performer in CoD esports, if not the top performance. However, it is difficult to pin down exact metrics for seasons throughout Scump’s career because most of that data from the early years is not publicly available.
Between MLG Dallas 2011 and WW2 Stage 2 Playoffs, he spent eight years without a single event with a negative kill/death ratio, setting a record that may never be broken in the game. Additionally, he placed 4.08 on average over the course of his career, including 1.20 in Modern Warfare 2 and 1.71 in Advanced Warfare.
Scump demonstrated he’s not going out without a fight by winning his final league match against Boston Breach 3-2 and recording a 1.22 KD, the highest final series KD in Call of Duty history.
Without a doubt, Scump will go down in history as one of, if not the best Call of Duty player of all time.
Even while he may not have as many tournament victories as Ian “Crimsix” Porter or as many global titles as James “Clayster” Eubanks and Damon “Karma” Barlow, he nevertheless leaves a lasting legacy, which makes the GOAT discussion even more difficult to resolve.
