Dr Disrespect’s time streaming Apex Legends on Twitch appears to be coming to an end, after the two-time revealed he no longer has any interest in the battle royale during a recent broadcast.

The popular variety streamer is no stranger to first-person shooter games and certainly not battle royales, as he was one of the biggest personalities to promote Apex when it first came out in February 2019.

Anybody who watches the Two-Time back-to-back Blockbuster video game champion knows to expect the usual speed, violence and momentum every time he goes live on his channel, but on March 9 thing were a little different.

Apex Legends has changed a lot since Dr Disrespect first started playing it.

While the streamer’s voice was breaking all over the place and many players expected it to be nothing more than just a common flu, he revealed at one point that it was actually the much talked about coronavirus – which he claims to have “crushed” over the weekend.

Putting that to one side, he might well be going on the hunt for a new game to play in the near future, after coming to the conclusion that Apex Legends is no longer meeting his expectations.

“I might not ever play this game again,” he said. “I’m sorry ladies and gentlemen, I have absolutely f**king zero interest in this game – none, never have. A little bit early on, but that was fun, I was learning, it was fresh.

“Now that I know what every single fight is like and you can’t hit a big shot, the one shot, I just never f**king gravitated towards this game,” he added, before his voice completely crocked up. “I never have. I’m not gonna sit here and complain to you guys about it.”

In the past, as regular viewers will know, the Doc has gone as far as uninstalling games like Fortnite, PUBG, and even Apex Legends, only to play them again next time he goes live.

This time, though, there seems to be a difference as he “guaranteed” he wouldn’t be diving into the Apex Games, despite continuing to play it for the rest of his four-hour stream. He did add a “probably” to the promise too, so let’s see how this one plays out.

Could we see Dr Disrespect playing Valorant when it comes out?

Dr Disrespect has made a name for himself in first-person shooters and there’s no bigger talking point in the FPS market right now than Valorant.

Riot Games have released a lot of details on their next major project so far, confirming it will be released in “Summer 2020,” and Doc even had shroud on his channel later on to talk a little bit about the game. There’s a good chance that he will give it a go when it officially launches, but until then, fans should expect to see him switch around several titles.

Apex Legends players have got a trick that lets Octane jump seemingly higher than normal when using his launchpad, though, it might be quite situational.

Ever since being introduced back in Season 1, Octane has helped shake up Apex Legends thanks to his unique movement abilities.

The adrenaline junkie might not feature in every match in the same way both Pathfinder and Wraith do, but when he does, you can be sure to see him whizzing around the map using Stim or flying high with his jump pad.

Players have come up with plenty of movement tricks since his introduction, with Respawn going as far as tweaking the pad so that users can use a double jump. Yet, some players have gone even further, well, higher, than that.

Octane can regularly be found in Apex games, but not as much as some other legends.

It comes from Reddit user KILL2BKING, who pointed out that the tip might be pretty situational, but it should help you get the high ground over unknowing opponents. 

Quite simply, when an Octane jump pad is on the floor, you want to punch your way on it. Don’t run, or walk, use your melee attack right before you step on to it and you’ll start to bounce.

Now, if you really want to maximize the height advantage, let yourself float back down to the pad. You’ll then get a boost like it is a trampoline. Then, you can use your double jump to reach even greater heights.

  4. Double jump off to new heights

As noted, while this tip is pretty useful, it’s also quite situational. Given that you need to bounce up and back down again on the jump pad, it can make you vulnerable to enemy attacks. 

At the end of the day, though, if you need to reach a spot that could you give a leg up in a game, the movement trick is certainly worth mastering. At least until Respawn make legends changes.
