Dr DisRespect gets hilariously ran over by his own truck in Blackout

Dr DisRespect is all about violence, speed and momentum, but unfortunately for the popular Twitch star it was the speed and momentum of his own truck that eliminated him from a game of Blackout.

The two time Blockbuster Video Gaming Champion was live streaming alongside Team SoloMid member Sean ‘vsnz’ Garcia, who had already been eliminated from the match.

The Doc was driving a truck near Rivertown, when he spotted an enemy further down the road he was driving on.

ActivisionBlackout is Call of Duty’s first foray into the battle royale market.

Reacting quickly, Dr DisRespect immediately jumped out of the truck, abandoning the vehicle as he prepared to take aim at his opponent with a sniper rifle.

Unfortunately for The Doc, he had left the truck on a slope, and just as he was about to pull the trigger, it came careering back down the slope and over the top of the leader of the Champions Club.

Vsnz immediately burst into fits of laughter, joking: “When the violence, speed and momentum is just way too strong,” while even The Doc broke into a smile, before claiming that there was “definitely something going on with that truck.”

The Doc has made Blackout his game of choice since the release of the Call of Duty battle royale mode, and has even hosted a Code Red tournament on the game that he went on to win.

He will be making his return to the Battle Bus soon however, as he is set to host a $20,000 Fortnite tournament on Thursday, November 8. 

One thing is for sure, he’ll definitely be more careful about where he parks in future, in an attempt to avoid mistakes like this happening again!

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.
