In the video, the father and daughter duo were pressed for time and had to make it back towards the circle, they stumbled upon some players.
The dad picked up a fairly simple kill at point-blank range before charging towards the building’s window, where he hopped outside and quickly realized there was somebody behind him. His young daughter had remarkably called out that there might be another player there and she was right.
He tried his best to maneuver into a good shooting position, but was shot down and looked on the brink of elimination, before asking for her help, saying: “I’m down. Go get him. Go get him. Go get him!”
Using the GKS, his daughter dispatched of the opponent with ease and kept her father in the game by quickly reviving him.
He thanked her, saying: “Oh my goodness, I can’t believe you did that. That’s amazing! Those guys just got merked by a five-year-old”.
Following the video’s surge in popularity, the dad revealed that he had to buy his daughter a microphone so that other people could also hear her the next time she saves the day. Winning a game of Quads together played a big part in the decision to get her a headset.
“I can’t keep up with liking all of your wholesome comments but know I am grateful for having the opportunity to share this with you all. It warms the heartstrings.”
While some Call of Duty fans thought it was cute, others couldn’t believe that he had let his five-year-old daughter play CoD.

He has a healthy relationship with his daughter and she seems to be seriously enjoying herself. Bonding time and having an actual connection with your children is the GOOD parenting so you can honestly keep moving and take your wrong opinion else where. pic.twitter.com/08OxFVOA7i
