After countless requests from his audience, Dr Disrespect reacted to the new Warzone Pacific map reveal, noting how the design appears to have been inspired by PUBG.
The release of Call of Duty: Vanguard is set to usher in a new era for Warzone, removing the iconic Verdansk and replacing it with the brand new Pacific map.
While the triple-A title is scheduled to release on November 5, Raven Software is yet to reveal the exact date that the integration with Warzone will take place.
Despite this, the devs did give the community their first look at the Pacific map in the official Vanguard Multiplayer reveal video.
Although a lot of content creators watched the showcase live, Dr Disrespect only got round to watching it a day later and finally gave his opinion on the Pacific map.

After reaching the Warzone section of the Vanguard reveal, it was immediately obvious that Doc was impressed with the tropical theme of the Pacific map. He even celebrated when the Creative Director revealed that they were moving on from Verdansk to the new location.
Despite loving the lush environments of the new map, he did comment that it looked strangely similar to PUBG. There’s no doubt Doc is referring to the Sanhok map in PUBG that was released back in 2018, which also shares a tropical theme.
