Twitch star Dr Disrespect may not be playing Warzone much longer if there aren’t some major fixes to the game.

During a March 23 Twitch broadcast, the Two-Time was playing some Warzone solos when he lost a frustrating one-on-one firefight to another player inside a building.

“How do I lose that?” he cried, as he threw his hands up in disbelief. “The game’s such a f**king phony arcade piece of sh*t.”

While watching the kill cam, the streamer noticed his own shots never showed up on his enemy’s screen.

“Look at this guy! It doesn’t even show me shooting on his f**king screen! I’m hip-firing!” he angrily added while being sent to the Gulag for a chance to reenter the fray. “Nothing registers. It’s f**king stupid.”

“I give it a week,” Doc sighed. “I give this game another week, week-and-a-half.”

While it was unclear if he was talking about Warzone as a whole or his own personal playtime, Doc was clearly upset with the hit detection – something he’s been very vocal about in the past, even foaming at the mouth when previously raging over it.

“It’s too phony, it’s too arcadey,” he added. “Nobody can take that seriously. You can’t! You can’t take that f**king seriously. You can’t. I’m not.”

According to Doc, while it was only his first death, the kill really dampened his spirits: “I’m in a groove. I damaged him. I’m way better than this guy. I push in. I’m hip-firing, none of the bullets are f**king registering because we got 12-tick servers.”

He went on to add that in any other Call of Duty, he’d have won the fight: “That guy’s getting destroyed. I mean melted! Not even close. He’s not even doing ant damage to me.”

As for where the Two-Time will go next if he uninstalls Warzone in a week, there’s a possibility he returns to Overwatch. Prior to the rage-inducing firefight,he suggested he might bring his violence, speed and momentum back to the popular FPS.

“I kind of miss playing Overwatch,” he said. “I really enjoy Overwatch. It has to be one of the [most fun] games that I’ve played in a long time. Especially learning everything.”

Until then, it’ll be interesting to see if his Warzone experience picks up or if he decides to take a break in a week or so.

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.
