Seth "Scump" Abner is an SMG Slayer for Chicago Huntsmen. The 24-year-old American will feature as part of the Chicago franchise in the Call of Duty League (CDL) 2020 Season.

Scump is best known for his incredibly rich history in Call of Duty esports, particularly as part of the OpTic dynasty from 2015-2017, and his huge YouTube following.


Scump made a name for himself at the age of 16 during the Black Ops 1 season and has continued to lead the forefront of the esport by winning a championship in almost every Call of Duty he has competed in; he has also collected over $650,000 in prize winnings.

Here's Scump's player profile for the CDL 2020 season.

Scump's History

Black Ops 1


Scump's competitive debut came during the Black Ops 1 season (with Quantic LeveraGe), claiming victory at his first offline event on record - MLG Dallas 2011.

During the lifespan of this game, he would go on to win MLG Anaheim in amongst a series of top 6 finishes.

Modern Warfare 3

During the Modern Warfare 3 season, Scump was involved in a controversial 'swap' that saw himself and ProoFy trade teams; leaving the team as MerK, BigTymeR, Scump and Rambo.

They would go on to be the most dominant Modern Warfare 3 team in the game, during a time where there were limited NA LANs; as the game lacked the proper LAN capabilities.

In the final LAN event of Modern Warfare 3, at EGL 8, OpTic lost to TCM Gaming making them the first EU team to win a major tournament against NA opposition.

Black Ops 2


OpTic and Scump stuck together and it paid off as they picked up the first tournament win of the year at UMG Chicago; after picking up NaDeSHoT in place of Rambo, with Rambo eventually moving to Envy. However, it would be their only win of the year.

After a string of third places, action was required and the squad swapped out MerK for JKap - this did not improve performances.

The OpTic name and brand did, however, grow due to the players rising popularity from creating video content.



OpTic's strong name in COD Esports started to dwindle as they failed to get a foothold on the competitive scene until COD Champs 2014; where they placed third.

A string of poor placements in the early months saw many roster changes, including an appearance from Ricky and MBoZe, before they moved to OpTic Nation. The roster for the year settled on NaDeSHoT, Scump, Clayster and ProoFy; at which point BigTymer had retired.


The team's only major honour during the season came at the Inaugural X Games Invitational.

Advanced Warfare

Advanced Warfare was undoubtedly the most successful year for OpTic as they claimed nine titles during the season; a personal best for the organisation.

The team parted ways with Clayster and ProoFy in order to pick up Crimsix and FormaL. The team dominated, winning 3/4 of tournaments before champs. However, it didn't go to plan at COD Champs 2015 as they placed seventh.

It was at this point that NaDeSHoT decided to retire and the team acquired Karma; Scump was promoted to captain.

With this change, the team won six titles (including the World Finals) and placed second on three other occasions. Scump ended the year with 447,975 pro points - the most out of any player.

Black Ops 3


The team made no roster changes and continued to dominate in Black Ops 3. Again they acquired five titles in various regions including North America, Europe and Australia.

Despite another dominant year and coming into COD Champs 2016 as favourites, they again fell short, placing in the top 8.

Infinite Warfare

Despite plenty of rumours about roster changes, the team continued to squad up heading into the final jetpack Call of Duty.

It wasn't a glorious start, finishing top 6 at Las Vegas and 2nd at Atlanta, they went on to win back-to-back championships at Dallas and Paris; with Scump being awarded the MVP of Dallas.

It was a rocky road after that, a fourth place in the Pro League Stage 1 playoffs and a top 8 at Anaheim left many wondering if their time had come.

Nevertheless, the team continued on as they placed first at the Stage 2 playoffs. But the real tournament began two weeks later at COD Champs 2017.


OpTic entered as the favourites, sweeping their group 3-0. It was looking like their year until the eClassico arrived in the winners final against Envy; they were sent to the lower bracket.

A quick 3-0 on Luminosity meant they were back for revenge in the Grand Final, beating Envy 3-1 and 3-0 to win COD Champs.


After such a high, it was no surprise that the team would stick together for the next iteration of COD, as the franchise returned to boots on the ground.

A promising 3rd place at the first event in Dallas gave the impression that another successful year was ahead. However, it wasn't meant to be and the best the team could manage was second at the Pro League Stage 1 playoffs.

Seattle was the final nail in the coffin, their top 16 placement spelt time for change - Karma was benched and FormaL left for Luminosity to make way for Octane and Methodz.

Despite the change, it didn't work out overall as they fell to an all-time low with a top 24 placing at COD Champs 2018.


Black Ops 4

The fourth instalment of the Black Ops franchise looked to be a return to form for OpTic. Karma was brought back into the team, as well as replacing Octane and Methodz with Dashy and TJHaly.

The first place at Las Vegas looked like the jump start OpTic needed to get back to winning ways. However, they were quickly brought back down to earth as the team lacked practice and became overconfident - finishing top 12 at Fort Worth.

It was third place for the Greenwall at both London and Anaheim and finished up the regular season top of their pro league group.

Top 8 was all that they could manage at the Pro League playoffs, but it didn't hinder their spirits as they looked unstoppable at COD Champs 2019. Unfortunately, two quickfire losses to eUnited and 100 Thieves in the final stages of the competition left them with a third-place finish once again.
