Dr Disrespect has perfect idea to improve Warzone Gulag

The Gulag, Warzone’s 1v1 death pit where players battle it out head-to-head for a chance to respawn into the battle, is quickly becoming an iconic feature of Call of Duty. But, Twitch star Dr Disrespect has his own idea about how it could be totally reworked.

The Gulag pits two eliminated players in Warzone against each other, both with the exact same weapon, a tactical and a lethal throwable. Placed in a small prison showers area, the players have a short window to eliminate each other, with the winning getting the chance to rejoin their teammates in combat.

It’s an innovative feature for a battle royale, and generally well-liked, but there are still complaints about some of the features. Namely, some players think all tactical grenades should be removed, to keep it strictly gun-on-gun action.

The Gulag is a fresh new way of respawning in battle royale.

But, this isn’t the Doc‘s main concern. His idea would be to also remove the throwables and grenades, but actually give players their own weapon of choice, even with attachments.

“No perks, no equipment, and your ideal weapon to take in there, and no RPGs or explosives. You could take your decked out MP5, decked out AR, decked out LMG, maybe even a sniper, and that’s it,” he explained.

The Doc was quick to clarify that akimbo pistols wouldn’t be allowed, or “no bullsh*t stuff” as he put it. “Just straight up, solid weapons, and whatever your create-a-class is around it.”

It would certainly be a controversial change, as one of the popular aspects of the gulag is how stripped back it is. Both players are given either a pistol or shotgun at random, with no attachments to keep things as leveled out as possible.

However, Doc thinks this new system would work better. “Every time you fight somebody, you know you’re going to use your class, that you like, comfortable with, or maybe even mix it up. And at the same time, you don’t know what you’re going against.”

Not everyone in his stream chat was on board for the idea though, so Dr Disrespect responded in typical fashion.

With Activision confirming they plan to keep adding content and new modes to Warzone over the coming months and even years, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Gulag gets some changes too.

On the other hand, the saying “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” also comes to mind, and with the exception of flashbang/concussion grenade complaints, the Gulag is, on the whole, the perfect way to give players that free respawn opportunity.

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

Warzone’s Halloween event has given the map a major spooky makeover.

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
