YouTube streamer and mustache maestro Dr Disrespect has lashed out at Warzone 2.0’s DMZ mode, describing it as “gimmicky” and claiming no one wants to play its “sixth grade design.”

Warzone 2.0 is amongst the most highly anticipated titles in CoD history. The battle royale sequel will drop on November 16, alongside Modern Warfare 2 Season 1.

Accompanying its classic BR modes will be DMZ, an Escape from Tarkov like mode that sees players fight for territory on Al-Mazrah.

When questioned by fellow streamer Dr Lupo, the Doc followed up with: “Cmon Lupo, if MW2019, Warzone Caldera, no CTF in mp, 8 maps, no footstep audio, no ranked playlist, sbmm, killing 40 ai’s, 100 million dollar marketing budget is any indication along with what I’ve seen….. it has no chance after week 1.”

While the CoD community will be waiting to see what DMZ delivers, it is true that there have been some reservations over the mode, which Infinity Ward has now confirmed to be launching in Beta.

Dr Disrespect has compared his own upcoming title DEADROP favorably to Call of Duty’s recent installments, hitting out at the engine being used in particular.

Only time will tell how the Midnight Society title compares to DMZ but, for now, the two time is keeping his powder dry with regards to Call of Duty’s newest mode.
