Dr Disrespect rage quits Modern Warfare during claymore and shotgun rant

Dr Disrespect has put Infinity Ward in the firing line, pleading for changes to Call of Duty Modern Warfare after rage-quitting mid-stream.

The Twitch star is an avid Call of Duty player – after all, he used to work on the franchise as a level designer. However, as time drags on with Modern Warfare, Dr Disrespect’s string is wearing thin, and his temper rising.

Now, instead of other players, he’s got Infinity Ward in his sights, breaking down the precise changes they need to make to Modern Warfare to keep the Doc playing for the weeks, months, and possibly years to come.

GFUELDr Disrespect hasn’t been happy with Modern Warfare, and he let Infinity Ward know about it.

During a November 4 stream of the game, the Two-Time was getting pummeled from all angles by all varieties of players. From not being able to see down darkened corridors, to the occasional explosive on the ground, it seemed like it wasn’t an enjoyable experience.

After one final claymore kill, the Doc snapped, rage-quitting the game and going on a lengthy tirade about the shortfalls of the latest Call of Duty title.

“I can’t f***ing play this game right now, I don’t really want to play, I don’t want to f***ing play pubs Infinity Ward,” said the Doc, not mincing his words.

“You’ve got f***ing claymores on every single window and every single door – no one wants that. If that’s not happening, the 725 shotgun from across the map is happening. No one wants it.”

Instead of sitting on their laurels, Dr Disrespect wants Infinity Ward to act quickly to make changes to the beloved franchise before they isolate their playbase.

“It’s time to make a patch tonight, put it out tonight,” the two-time pleaded. “Let’s change it up. Let’s get on course, we are starting to swerve way off f***ing course right now man. We’re going downhill in our Jeep that doesn’t have 4x4s, our 4×2 Jeep, because we are getting a little ahead of ourselves.”

As for his suggestions? Nerf everything that makes the game anti-fun in public lobbies, and bolster the gunplay that Call of Duty is known for.

“Let’s dial it back,” he said. “Let’s take out the claymores. Let’s get the shotguns nerfed big time, and I don’t know, maybe add Dead Silence into the game so that we can just run around and not be heard everywhere.”

Infinity WardThe 725 shotgun has been a major point of contention in MW because of how overpowered it is.

He’s not the first personality to raise concerns about the direction the franchise is heading. Numerous complaints have been made about weapon balance, multiplayer, spawning, “safe spaces,” and more from pro players and pub stars alike.

That hasn’t stopped Modern Warfare from becoming the most successful Call of Duty release this generation, surpassing over $600 million in sales on its opening weekend. But, at the end of the day, the Doc knows what he wants, and is begging Infinity Ward for those changes.

New Warzone update removes helicopters & adds Juggourdnaut Royale

Infinity Ward has pushed out a new playlist update for both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone and while it adds some modes to the game like Juggourdnaut Royale, it also removes helicopters from the night-version of its battle royale.

New playlist updates for Modern Warfare and Warzone, generally speaking, only change out the gamemodes in the game, but today’s is a bit special. According to some notes released by Infinity Ward, the new hotfix removes two major aspects of the title.

The first is the removal of helicopters from the night version of Verdansk, which is pretty major to say the least. Currently, it’s unclear exactly why Infinity Ward made this change, as they didn’t specify in their tweet. It could be due to a bug, low visibility, or something else entirely.

Pumpkin heads have also been removed from Modern Warfare and Warzone.

In addition, the developer also removed the pumpkin heads due to a bug occurring, although exactly what that bug is was also not made clear. It’s also undetermined if this removal also affects the pumpkin heads on the juggernaut suit, which automatically has the head attached when you put it on.

Beyond these removals however, the update also adds a new mode, Juggourdnaut Royale. Despite the name being a bit different, this is the exact same mode as Juggernaut Royale, which was added to the game during Season 4. Players have to fight over juggernaut suits located around the map in order to survive.

On top of that, Infinity Ward also added BR Solo Survivor and Plunder: Candy Collector to the rotation, both of which appear to be renamed versions of the standard modes.

It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes the developers to re-add the helicopter and pumpkin heads to the game. While the former has obviously been in the game from the start, the latter is a nice seasonal treat that will only be around for a couple more weeks.
