Dr DisRespect rages after dying due to the auto-mantle mechanic in Blackout

Treyarch might have removed the dreaded 9-Bang from Blackout with the November 6 update, but it looks like there might be a new topic of debate for the community after this blunder.

Black Ops 4’s auto-mantle is there to help players easily climb walls and jump in and out of windows, but sometimes it triggers at the worst time and causes you to lose a gunfight.  

Dr DisRespect found this out the hard way while playing Blackout and was quickly sent into a rage as he pleaded for a change in the mechanic.

The two-time Blockbuster Video Game Champion was in the middle of a heated gunfight in Blackout when his character unexpectedly tried to mantle over a shipping container.

The brief loss of control he suffered as a result of the auto-mantle gave his opponent just enough room to subsequently win the fight and tilt The Doc off the face of the Earth.

After slamming his desk hard enough to shake his camera, he shares his enraged thoughts on the mechanic.

“TAKE OFF THE AUTO-MANTLE,” Dr DisRespect yells into the camera. “Take it out! Give us a rebind key!” 

The Doc then just sits there in silence as he tries to collect his thoughts before further elaborating on the system.

“I don’t want to mantle over barbed wire and little barriers that come up to my shin,” he concludes as he moves on to the next game.

Given the speed at which Treyarch has been releasing updates to Black Ops 4, it might not be long until Dr DisRespect can get the fix he needs for auto-mantling.

In the meantime, he can put some extra focus on Fortnite to gear up for his Code Red tournament that’s coming to Fortnite for the first time ever on November 8.

Dr DisRespect’s Code Red tournament series comes to Fortnite with big names such as Ninja, DrLupo, and NICKMERCS already confirmed.

Another Warzone streamer shows hacks live on Twitch stream

Like clockwork, another Call of Duty: Warzone streamer has exposed their in-game cheats while playing live on Twitch. And this time, the cheater did not take kindly to chat quickly trashing him.

Hackers have been the biggest issue in Warzone; with cross-play enabled between PC and console players for the first time, the CoD fanbase has been exposed to even greater levels of cheating than ever before.

Going by ‘festation’ on Twitch, yet another streamer has outed themselves as a cheater on the platform by displaying their hacks while broadcasting live. In this case, they were quickly called out on Twitter and in the chat, leading to deleted clips and a switch to Black Ops 4 gameplay.

With Twitch chat flaming him for being bad at Modern Warfare and Warzone even with hacks activated, festation proceeded to let them know that he is elite on Black Ops 4 and challenged them to 1v1 matches. He then switched over to the earlier CoD title, but not before his hacks were clipped and shipped across the internet.

As shown in the clip, downloaded before its inevitable deletion on Twitch, festation is rolling around Verdansk while knowing precisely where every single opponent is on the map. He can see players, color-coded based on their health, with a structural indication of their character model’s movement through walls.

Similarly, he also has indicators for guns, cash, and armor found throughout the map. Unfortunately for him, that sort of unfair game awareness doesn’t equate to the IQ that matters, as he is easily blown up by a Cluster Strike at one point.

This is likely why Twitch chat laid into him even more, as fans typically shame hackers for remaining inferior at the game even when gaining an unfair advantage. 

Part of the reason why he gained a decent amount of viewers on Twitch was likely because of getting exposed on Twitter. Concerned fans of the battle royale went so far as to reply to a random TimTheTatMan tweet to try and bring attention to the blatant hacking.

In response, new viewers could enjoy seeing the cheater switch over to BO4 and continue to struggle while throwing out challenges to his detractors in chat: “Get on Black Ops 4, watch me smack any of you on Hardpoint.”

This is far from the first time a streamer has been exposed for cheating. In the past, one accidentally displayed his hacks while another purposefully tried to show his off. As of yet, neither Infinity Ward nor Twitch appear to have banned festation, but repercussions seem likely following this exposure.
