Dr Disrespect might have just accidentally hinted at when Call of Duty fans can expect to dive into Warzone in Modern Warfare.

While discussing his recent feud with WWE legend The Undertaker, Doc commented on how he got away from the latest “scuffle” thanks to a trusty wing-suit.

As the conversation went on during his March 3 broadcast however, the Two-Time might have accidentally let slip a potential hint as to when Modern Warfare’s battle royale mode could be released.

There’s no official confirmation on when Warzone might be released, but Doc could have let a hint slip in his latest stream.

Waiting for Apex Legends to finish downloading after he uninstalled Respawn’s battle royale title in a heated rage, Doc was chatting with fellow Twitch streamer Jesse ‘Kraftyy’ Kraft. Bringing up his “new rival” in The Undertaker, Krafty laughed at Doc’s latest on-stream antics.

“ The wingsuit though… the wingsuit got me. It was unexpected. I didn’t expect the wingsuit, it’s been a while since you’ve pulled out the old wingsuit,” the Apex star asked the Doc. [Was the last time] Blackout?”

“I might bust it out next week,” Doc quickly replied. “Just don’t forget this conversation gentlemen. Next week you’re going to see the wingsuit.”

Immediately after his intriguing statement, Twitch chat erupted with Warzone questions, seeming to believe that Doc was teasing the next iteration of battle royale in the Call of Duty franchise.

No, it’s not Warzone, no it’s not confirmed, Jesus. That’s not what I’m saying, I didn’t mean that,” he said in response to his chat, though he may have been backpedaling after his fans figured out his Warzone clue so quickly.

Treyarch’s popular Blackout mode was a mainstay in Doc’s Triple Threat challenge for quite some time, for there’s a chance he may have just been teasing a return to the old stomping grounds after some time away on other titles.

There’s also a possibility that he was simply teasing another segment in his clash with WWE’s deadman, one that would see the Doc pulling out the wingsuit once again to continue the epic crossover saga between the two.

Could we be seeing the Two-Time take on Warzone next week?

With plenty of leaks pointing towards an imminent release, and content creators having seemingly tested the new mode, Doc’s phrasing could have accidentally revealed which battle royale title he’ll be diving into next week.

While we wait to see if the Doc is right, get caught up to speed with this handy guide on everything we know about Modern Warfare’s upcoming battle royale Warzone.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
