Popular Twitch streamer Dr DisRespect is no stranger to ‘stream snipers’, but it was probably a first for even him when one managed to get directly into his game lobby while playing Blackout.

Typically, stream snipers hunt down popular streamers while they are mid game, aiming to eliminate them, be vulgar over proximity chat or otherwise just be a general nuisance.

There is no proximity chat in Black Ops 4’s Blackout however, meaning stream snipers are limited (usually) to just hoping to luckily land in the same match and take out said streamer.

But, that didn’t stop one very determined stream sniper from somehow finding their way directly into the Doc’s game lobby, before he had even entered a match.

It is possible to find your way into the lobby of any player using modified equipment, or the player may have found the Doc through the recent players section of the social tab.

Whatever the method, the player entered Dr DisRespect’s lobby, and proceed to spew out numerous expletives, loudly for the Doc’s massive audience to hear.

Clearly confused by what was going on initially, Dr Disrespect simply left his own lobby as fast as possible, before the player said anything potentially bannable on Twitch (although typically in instances like these, blame isn’t placed on the streamer, as long as they make an attempt to stop it or mute their audio).

Even after leaving the lobby however, the stream sniper remained in Dr DisRespect’s in-game party, meaning he had to manually kick them, after first reporting and blocking them.

It is perhaps an issue which developer’s Treyarch will be looking into, as the problem appears to persist on both PlayStation 4 and PC, where players are somehow able to find their way into any lobby, even without an invite and the with the lobby set to private, and even the player limit set.

Numerous pro CoD players have also faced a similar problem of random players entering their lobbies while streaming, with the players either ruining practice or similarly blurting out expletives in the knowledge that these players are streaming.

Warzone player discovers perfect way to counter Airport tower campers

A Warzone player has found the perfect way to counter campers in the Verdansk Airport tower, and it might be the best way to bait those annoying players out and get across the runway.

If you’ve played Warzone even once, you’ll know exactly which tower we mean: the one north of Airport that has only one way up, from which players can easily camp, scout out enemies and lay fire upon those trying to rotate to zone.

Even with the inclusion of external ziplines to many tall buildings in Verdansk, the tower still doesn’t have one, meaning that once players are up there, it’s incredibly difficult to get them down.

Typically, you’ll struggle in a straight gunfight against these players — so what you need to do is bait them out, instead, and capitalize when they’re distracted.

Tower campers are among some of the most annoying players in Warzone.

As showcased below by NadxCH, a helicopter could be your key to infiltrating the tower — though not how you might think.

While many people will have tried to attack head-on while in a helicopter, the plan instantly falls flat if the tower campers have a rocket launcher or explosives of some sort, that will see you and your team come crashing down instantly.

Instead, you need to assign a teammate to fly past in the helicopter after landing up top, and strike while the iron is hot. While the designated driver flies the heli in one direction, you’ll need to jump off the top and plan your parachute perfectly to land in the control room while the opponents have their back turned and are distracted.

Obviously, this will often be easier said than done. Jumping off the top of the tower and timing everything right to land in the control room is a skill you’ll have to practice over and over again to get right, so you’ll have to be confident you can pull it off first.

Secondly, you’ll have to rely on the enemy team being distracted by the helicopter. They likely will be, and will want to take it down while it’s so close, which is why it’s the perfect opportunity to strike.

Otherwise, you might find yourself trapped while trying to traverse the map — and there are few worse types of players to die to than those in Airport tower.
