Call of Duty streamer erupts into explosive rage after dying in Black Ops 4

Dying in a multiplayer game will always be a little frustrating no matter what, but this particular streamer was fed up and took his anger out in an extreme way.

With the Call of Duty community anxiously awaiting the full release, professional players and streamers alike have been returning to previous titles to hold them over.

One unfortunate streamer on Twitch couldn’t quite handle the frustration of repeatedly being gunned down in Treyarch’s Black Ops 4.

In a September 25 stream, an already agitated ‘ToxicJaryo’ was shot in the back seemingly out of nowhere, and from this elimination, his anger reached a breaking point. 

“Dude, come on” he yells before slamming his desk and repeatedly punching one of his monitors in a display of pure frustration.

As though punching his screen wasn’t enough, he continues to vent, claiming that the game is “f*cking ridiculous,” before picking up the monitor and forcefully slamming it down into his desk.

Despite the explosive outrage, these hefty blows didn’t even mark the end of the stream for the ironically named gamer. Cooler heads prevailed after the lopsided sparring session and ‘ToxicJaryo’ went on to stream for another few hours with no further bursts of anger, at least not to this extent.

The Modern Warfare beta was recently open to the general public across all platforms from September 19 through to September 23 and was met with a great deal of praise. With the Call of Duty scene booming of late, many current and former pro players have been rallying together for throwback tournaments to fill the void between the beta and the full release of Modern Warfare.

The full game will be hitting store shelves and digital marketplaces on October 25 across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Many popular streamers have arguably endured much harsher luck lately throughout the Modern Warfare beta. From the game crashing one kill away from a nuke, to a new killstreak not quite living up to expectations.

Evidently, there are much better ways to keep level-headed in aggravating moments like these but this poor streamer definitely isn’t the first and won’t be the last to go about smashing equipment.

4 features Warzone desperately needs in Black Ops Cold War

With season 6 of Warzone out for fans to enjoy and Black Ops Cold War on the way, we’re still excited to see what content updates will drop in the future. Here are four things we want to see added to Call of Duty’s battle royale title.

Warzone’s blisteringly fast kill times, highly customizable loadout drops, satisfying killstreaks, and addictive gunplay makes it one of the most unique entries in the BR genre. Of course, like all good battle royale games, Warzone needs a constant stream of fresh content updates and unique modes to keep players invested. 

Fans are now looking forward to Warzone in the upcoming Black Ops Cold War, releasing on November 13, 2020. We’ve seen some fantastic additions to Warzone already in Modern Warfare, but there are still some things that would be perfect to heighten the experience for players.

1. Return of classic guns

Black Ops Cold War will also carry on the Warzone mode.

The Call of Duty franchise first graced our screens back in 2003 and since then, players have fought their way through the gritty battlefields of WWII, stopped a nuclear cold war, taken down terrorist regimes, and even ventured into the very depths of space.

Each Call of Duty game has introduced a wave of new weapons, attachments, cosmetics, and killstreaks that fans can equip themselves with when venturing into the highly competitive multiplayer arenas. 

As a result, there have been a vast number of historical, modern-day, and futuristic guns added to the franchise over the years. While Warzone’s current arsenal of deadly weaponry is nothing to frown at, we’d love to see some iconic Call of Duty guns return to the scene. 

Fortunately, our prayers have been answered with the release of the CR-56 AMAX (Galil), so there could be a very good chance that we see other fan favourites make their way over to Warzone. After all, we’d love to run around Verdansk with our trusty Thompson SMG at our side. 

2. Dynamic weather conditions

New weather effects could further enhance the game’s action for players to enjoy.

Battle royale fans have wanted dynamic weather conditions for ages and while PUBG has toyed around with various climate conditions, we’ve yet to see other battle royale games take the same leap – after all, Modern Warfare’s multiplayer already has night variants of maps like Azhir Cave, Hackney Yard, Gun Runner, and Rammaza, and Verdansk with The Haunting of Verdansk Halloween event.

While these maps may not feature any new content, the added veil of darkness really helps bring a new dynamic to the overall gameplay. Having a nighttime mode for allows for some brilliantly chaotic moments, particularly when you never know who is lurking in the shadows.

Watching enemy tracer rounds light up the sky, hearing nearby footsteps, and jumping at shadowy silhouettes is exhilarating and terrifying. Further dynamic weather effects would only enhance these emotions.

For example, weather effects that reduce player visibility would call for the use of NVGs (Night Vision Goggles), laser pointers, thermal optics, and Flash Grenades. Having various weather effects would also force players to adapt their current playstyle, drastically switching up the current meta and creating new opportunities for different weapons/attachments to truly shine.

3. Continued Seasonal events

Full roadmap for the Haunting of Verdansk event in Warzone & Modern Warfare.

With Halloween’s ‘Haunting of Verdansk’ now live on Warzone, we’ve got a great taste of seasonal content that incentivizes players to play. We think it would be a fantastic opportunity to expand on these events with further seasonals, such as a Holiday event featuring holiday bonuses; a thick layer of snow or a blizzard draping the map, with special cosmetics focusing around the time of year across different cultures.

These weather changes to Verdansk will force players to restrategize and approach their matches differently, requiring them to rethink their weapon add-ons such as optics, and differing perks like Cold Blooded.

4. Further map updates 

ActivisionChanges to Warzone’s map could drastically impact the way we play.

Warzone players have been busy opening the various bunkers dotted around the map, collecting the rare loot inside, and scrutinizing details in order to uncover the game’s secrets.

The opening of a few bunkers may seem small, but it’s this kind of change that helps keep the map interesting for new and veteran players. Epic Games and Respawn are constantly adding, removing, and even destroying vast sections of their battle royale maps, so we’d love to see Verdansk receive the same treatment. 

For example, Warzone’s Gora Dam could begin to crack under the pressure as the frozen reservoir begins to thaw, leading to a catastrophic event that sees vast sections of the map partially destroyed or flooded. Not only would this make for an awesome in-game spectacle, it would also drastically alter the way players traverse their way around Verdansk.

We’ve seen cool additions to Verdansk’s map as of late with the Football stadium opening, and a new train traversing the map, both allowing players new POI experiences in-game, but constant graduating changes to the map will keep it fresh and appealing for returning players.

New aquatic vehicles could even be introduced to further supplement this change. The possibilities are seemingly endless and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for Warzone when Black Ops Cold War releases.
