It turns out that David Dobrik has a real gamer side to him, as he roasted and raged with the best of them, literally, after linking up with Call of Duty pros Christopher ‘Parasite’ Duarte and Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno for a night of Warzone.

Dobrik is best known for his YouTube vlogs, but the early Vine star appears to be as comfortable in Verdansk as he is in Hollywood. After randomly contacting Parasite, a former CoD world champion and CDL Challengers player, and the Florida Mutineers’ Skyz, Dobrik got a full session of Warzone with the boys and brought some peak gamer energy.

Although the gang ended up putting together four wins, the road was bumpy and the spice was right. Obviously very familiar with Parasite’s Twitter bio, Dobrik was unafraid to lean in and roast the professional player following some dissatisfactory performances.

Amid a sea of laughs, David laid into Parasite with a clean dig: “World champion, my a** … Change your Twitter bio to ‘36th place in Warzone’ because that’s more accurate.”

It’s one of the most unexpected content collaborations, but the jokes were rolling and the gameplay was hilarious.

With that level of energy going on, it’s no surprise that legendary Call of Duty players like Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow were in Parasite’s Twitch chat, cracking up at the banter and, more specifically, at Dobrik blaming lag for any and all of his mishaps — including one unfortunate drop.

Although Dobrik’s content has often leaned family-friendly, this stream proved he’s just like Call of Duty players everywhere. In one moment, he lost a Gulag and unleashed a trail of obscenities long and vibrant enough to make the most avid CoD player proud.

Many might speculate that he just got tired of losing Warzone matches, but it’s still hard to know exactly what prompted Dobrik’s decision to hit the sticks with some of the game’s best. But we do know one thing: the massive, multimillionaire influencer is just as chaotic on the Verdansk battlefield as any of us.

From parachute mishaps to blaming lag and cursing out Gulag opponents, it appears that Warzone banter and mania is universal.

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.


Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
