Twitch streamer Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm made an eagerly anticipated appearance at the 2019 CWL Championships on August 16, and revealed the one Call of Duty pro he’d love to team with. 

Dr Disrespect is one of Twitch’s biggest names, and even worked on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare as a level designer. He was drafted in on August 16 by Treyarch, as a special guest for the ongoing CWL Championships. 

Among other things, the two-time was invited onto the analyst desk alongside lead presenter Katie Bedford, and a host of ex-pro players. While on the desk, Bedford posed the question, “Of all the Call of Duty pro players, who would you team with?” 

CWLThe Doc joined the analyst desk and contributed to a number of funny moments.

“Who would I team with? I’m going with Karma,” said the Doc, prompting a cheer from the crowd. “No hesitation. One of my all time favorites.” 

Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow is generally considered the best Call of Duty player of all time, and is currently the only player to hold three world championship rings. His OpTic Gaming roster are looking strong at CWL Championships, unbeaten in the tournament so far. 

However, after making his pick the Doc pulled out a flip phone and took an urgent call from fellow OpTic player Seth ‘Scump’ Abner. “It’s just for the broadcast,” joked the Doc. “You’re still one of my favorites.”

After hanging up his ‘phone call’ with Scump, the Doc immediately returned to a straight face, stating unequivocally that “it’s Karma.” This prompted laughter from the analyst desk, as the Doc brought his trademark humor to the CWL’s broadcast. 

Dr Disrespect’s ‘Call of Duty stats’ were then brought up, showing an incredible set of numbers, including a 5.28KD in Hardpoint, 6.26 in Control and ‘Infinity’ in Search and Destroy. 

CWLThe Doc has been putting up some impressive numbers.

The Two-Time stated role was also listed as “all of them”.

3 tips to help you survive Black Ops Cold War’s new Zombies Cranked mode

With the release of Black Ops Cold War’s mid-season update, Treyarch has added Cranked into the game’s Zombies mode – and it’s pretty different from the standard version, requiring some completely separate strategies. 

While Cranked in Call of Duty games is nothing new, having debuted all the way back in 2013’s Ghosts, what is different is a Zombies version of the mode, which was just added to Black Ops Cold War during the game’s midseason update.

The concept is simple: You’re given a timer, and when that timer reaches 0, you explode and die. With each kill, however, your timer resets, giving you more time to keep on grinding. It’s an incredibly fast-paced mode in normal multiplayer, and the Zombies version is even more hectic – but there are some tips you can utilize to help you survive longer.

Pace out your kills

Activision
Pacing out your kills in Cranked is important due to the fact that you only need one kill to reset your timer.

In standard Cranked, players are usually scrambling to get kills. In a 5v5 or 6v6, it makes sense, considering there’s only a limited amount of potential targets, and if you can’t find anyone, you’ll die easily due to the timer running out.

With BOCW Zombies Cranked, the opposite is true. There’s always an abundance of enemies and, while it’s not impossible to run out of targets, generally speaking, they’ll keep on spawning (there’s not even a break in-between rounds).

Because of this, there’s no need to be mowing down Zombies as one does in the normal mode. Instead, if you’re feeling overwhelmed (or if you want to get something done like Pack-A-Punching your weapon), try running away from the enemies for a while to get your bearings.

Remember, all it takes is one kill to reset your timer. If you find it running out, just look behind you at the horde you’ve surely amounted, kill one Zombie, and then move along with your business. Wasting your time mowing down each and every zombie can cost you your game.

With all that being said, don’t think you can run away from the Zombies with no problem; if you get too far away, you’ll find yourself struggling for kills, so it’s best if you stay nearby.

Use fast-reloading weapons and attachments

Activision
You’ll want to use weapons that can be reloaded quickly in Cranked.

In normal Zombies, using a LMG is sort of required during late-game conflicts, as it allows you to mow down Zombies with greater power. In Cranked, speed is king, so it might be better to use something smaller like an SMG.

Reloading fast is essential in Cranked, as you can easily become overrun. Even though it does have a lot of power, you don’t want to waste your time on the horrendously slow reload time found on LMGs. If you want an even faster reload time, you could even throw a fast-mag onto your SMG, and get it done even quicker.

In addition, SMGs have the added benefit of allowing you to run faster, meaning you’ll be able to evade Zombies even better than you would before.

Always go for the Timer Freeze power up

Activision
Remembering these tips can be the difference between surviving or dying early on.

Treyarch has implemented a brand new power-up that’s exclusive to the Cranked game mode: Timer Freeze. With this, players will be able to stop their countdown timer for around 15 seconds or so, giving them a breather.

While this might seem obvious to point out, you’ll want to go for those as much as possible. Getting one at the start of your game is not too important, but it’s especially critical when you get into the late game.

As the mode goes on, your timer will get shorter and shorter, meaning every break you get becomes more and more important. Having that 15 second breather seems like an eternity once you get it, so missing out on one can hurt you a lot – sometimes costing you your life.

While Cranked is incredibly fast-paced, it’s really not that bad if you know what you’re doing. If you remember these tips, you shouldn’t have as much of a problem.
