Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for a whole 24 whole livestream on Twitch, but not many fans would have expected this incredible 1v6 clutch play.
The popular variety streamer has been ramping up for the release of Infinity Ward‘s brand new first-person shooter for months and after crying out for a fresh challenge – or game – he looked to be enjoying himself already on day one.
It’s not often that The Doc will take to Twitter to post his gameplay, but this time was different. Taking down six other players to clutch a match is one thing, but to do it in front of thousands in the arena was an opportunity he just wasn’t going to turn down.
During his 24-hour launch stream, The Doc hooked up with one of the best competitive players in the world, Matthew ‘FormaL‘ Piper, for a lengthy session in the newest game mode of Cyber Attack.
While that may be a formidable duo, even in the early days of the game, the Two-Time was left in a one on six situation that he had to dig his team out of. Instead of playing it slowly, trying to find his feet, the streamer ramped up that trademark violence, speed, and momentum to pick up three close-quarters kills, even while clinging on for dear life.
He picked up a fourth kill when his enemies smelled blood and tried to pounce, but the pace was kicked up a notch as the bomb was planted.

While his downed teammates called out some support, including potential positions of enemies, The Doc managed to gun down a fifth kill moments after getting FormaL back into the game with a revive.
Even though the pair had the numbers advantage on their side, Dr Disrespect ignored another kill for a moment, jumping on the defuse instead. Yet, his final enemy decided to peek him seconds later – giving the popular streamer an easy final kill to round out his clutch.
Modern Warfare may be in its infancy, and we’re sure to see plenty of incredible clutches as the competitive season unfolds, but it’s clear that Dr Disrespect has captured the best clutch from the opening day.
Whether or not he’ll be surpassed in the following few days remains to be seen, but everyone will have to offer up some firm handshakes for now.
