Dr Disrespect has finally been able to flex his Call of Duty Warzone skills for his Twitch fans on-stream, and as he settled into the day-one grind, he revealed what he loves most about Infinity Ward’s “silky smooth” battle royale.

Modern Warfare’s long-awaited battle royale mode Warzone finally dropped on March 10 to bucket-loads of hype from the CoD community, and among those diving into the battle royale for the first time was Dr Disrespect.

One thing, in particular, piqued the Two-Time’s interest — the title’s huge map. Known for his Call of Duty level designs, the Doc knows his stuff. It’s a glowing review of Warzone, then, that its level left him particularly impressed.

Dr Disrespect said he’s already loving Warzone’s “silky smooth” map design.

As he prepared to grind out “eight straight hours of wins” during his March 10 stream, the Twitch star revealed just how much he loves the battle royale’s “silky smooth” level design, especially how “realistic” everything is.

“I, the gorgeous two-time, back-to-back video game champion, have played this game a handful of times in the past little while, and one thing does stand out… it’s one thing you’re going to notice about Warzone,” Dr Disrespect said.

“You guys know I love analyzing world and level design, and it’s actually a really interesting space to fight in. You’ll notice when we’re at the airport, or near the stadium… it actually feels like you’re running around a bigger space.”

The Doc pointed to another title he’s praised recently, Battlestate’s hardcore shooter Escape from Tarkov, and said Warzone felt very similar. “We’ve talked about it in EFT too, the world scale actually feels really good,” he said.

While he’s only dipped his toes into Warzone during his first stream, Dr Disrespect also had a chance to test it all behind-the-scenes before launch. He said when he was testing it ahead of the official release, he was “loving it.”

“There are some games where there can be a full stadium and your character runs through it in two seconds. It doesn’t feel like you’re running through a stadium. In [Warzone], all the points of interest, they feel nice,” he said.

“You can tell when you’re in certain areas in this. That’s what stuck out to me in playtesting. It’s not like buildings into airports, stadiums into the mountains. Everything has been spaced out really nicely… it’s great.”

While the Two-Time seems to be loving his time in Infinity Ward’s new battle royale for the moment, there’s every chance his mind changes in the next few days.

The volatile Twitch star has become renowned for his rage-quits, and recently he exploded over Apex Legends ⁠— he even went so far to “guarantee” he would never touch Respawn’s title again, despite playing it for four more hours.

Fans will also be hoping Warzone doesn’t go the same way as Black Ops 4’s Blackout, which Mixer streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek suggested was “always doomed to fail” in the build-up to Modern Warfare’s next attempt at the genre.

Streamer frags out in Black Ops Cold War with Rockband guitar controller

Call of Duty players have been known to whip out some pretty outlandish controllers in years past, and now that trend has continued with Black Ops Cold War with one streaming using a Rockband guitar.

Twitch streamer TheStevieP decided to play the game’s zombies and even multiplayer mode with the absurd controller, but was actually seeing some success with it despite its obvious limitations.

While playing with a guitar may sound impossible, especially with a game as fast-paced as COD, TheStevieP found a button layout setup that gets the job done.

“Walk is down on the strum bar, walking backward is up on the strum bar,” he explained. “To look around, red is to the left, yellow is to the right, blue is up, orange is down. And green shoots.”

However, some of the drawbacks of playing with the guitar are that he doesn’t have a reload button or a grenade button that could get him into some serious trouble in the heat of a firefight.

“If I get a kill in multiplayer I’m going to laugh,” he chuckled. “The person who dies to me deserves to be laughed at.”

As it turns out, his remark was spot on, because just a little bit later, the streamer hopped into multiplayer to partake in some TDM on the infamous Miami map.

After struggling with four deaths to his name, TheStevieP ended up getting into an extremely awkward firefight on a stairway. After missing his first few shots and taking some damage, he managed to finally land a direct hit, eliminating his opponent.

“Yo!” he jumped up with his arms raised in victory.

As he let out a hardy belly laugh, the streamer did end up falling himself, but it was perfectly fine by him, who still couldn’t believe he managed to pull off the frag.

“Let’s go!” he beamed again with glee.

The clip taking from the stream ended up being posted to Reddit where it received a whopping 3.8K upvotes by users on the platform who were impressed with the play.

Black Ops Cold War is still very young so there is no telling what else streamers and content creators will try to up the ante in the bizarre controller department. As it stands though, this was one heck of a way to kick off the entertainment.
