Twitch star Dr DisRespect has responded to a challenge laid out by fellow streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar regarding Call of Duty’s new battle royale mode, Blackout.

Summit1g was streaming Blackout with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, when the pair began to discuss PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which Lazar regularly played before Blackout released.

The American made reference to how he disliked playing PUBG every day, to which Ninja responded: “I’d get sick of it too if I got sniped in the face by Dr DisRespect every time I got on.”

The former Counter-Strike Global Offensive streamer and semi-pro wasn’t impressed by Blevins’ remark, stating: “That’s because I sucked at that game, but this game’s different. If Doc came at me on this game…”

Unfortunately for Summit1g, the two-time Blockbuster Video Game Champion got his hands on the clip, and let Lazar know exactly what would happen if the two faced off on Blackout.

“I would destroy you! Are you kidding me?” screamed the The Doc. “I haven’t seen one snipe. I haven’t seen one 360.”

“I’ve seen a lot of flat-billed hats, a lot of Monster Energy sips, but that’s about it! I haven’t seen anything! There’s no way he said that.”

Dr DisRespect then issued a threat of his own to the American streamer, saying: “This is a warning. Once my Hot Drops game mode is polished and comes back, you’re going to be the first one I challenge in Blackout.”

Unfortunately, we don’t know when this exciting showdown will take place, but it’s clear that The Doc is already hyped up to take down Summit1g.

Activision has announced the second iteration of the CODE Bowl, which brings together high-profile esports players and members of the US and UK military esports teams to help raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment. Here’s what you need to know.

The Call of Duty Endowment has been raising money for veterans for a while now. The company, which was started in 2009, helps veterans find jobs after their deployment. In 2019, the owner of the company, Activision, held the first Modern Warfare CODE Bowl, which brought together major streamers and members of the US Army esports team.

Fast forward to December 2020 and Activision is continuing this tradition with two major changes: Black Ops Cold War is the name of the game this time around, and members of the UK military will also be participating. Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch the tournament.

Who’s participating?

Like last year’s tournament, the 2020 CODE Bowl will feature teams made up of famous streamers/pro-players, including Courage, LEGIQN, Huskerrs, Swagg, TeeP, Espresso, Vikkstar, Tommey, C9Emz, and Spratt. According to Activision, more will be announced in the near future.

Beyond that, however, those players will be joined by members of the US Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, and Space Force, as well as members of the UK British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force.

In addition, each team will be coached by a “Call of Duty League professional” but the exact list of those people has yet to be announced.

Currently, it’s unknown how the teams will be split, but all in all, it should make for a pretty interesting dynamic.

How can I watch the 2020 CODE Bowl?

According to Activision, the 2020 CODE Bowl is set to take place on December 11, 2020, at 6:00 PM GMT. If you’re unsure about what time that is in your area, we’ve broken it down for you below:

  • 1 PM EST
  • 10 AM PST
  • 3 AM JST (Saturday, December 12, 2020)
  • 5 AM AEDT (Saturday, December 12, 2020)

In addition, the event will be streamed entirely on Call of Duty’s YouTube and Twitch channels. It’s currently unknown if the event is going to be streamed on the above players’ respective accounts, but one would imagine they would be. Embeds for each stream will be added once they become available.
