Dr Disrespect wants major change to revive system in Warzone

Legendary Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect revealed some changes that he’d like to see made to the self-revive system in Call of Duty: Warzone during a March 27 broadcast.

While the two-time has been both critical and supportive of the latest battle royale experience, he believes that the revive mechanic, in particular, needs improvement.

When asked if he believes there is skill-based matchmaking in Warzone, Doc admitted that he was unsure, because of “what people can get away with in the game.”

“The RPGs, the vehicle combat, the thermal scopes across the map, people being revived – that whole self-revival thing, that’s a whole other thing. I think self-revive is a big issue,” he said. “It screws up fights, man.”

According to the Doc, he believes that downed enemies should be only one shot away from death in close-quarters. That said, he had no issue with it being used when someone gets shot from the other side of the map.

“If you down someone real quick it should only take one or two bullets to put this guy out,” he added. “Not a full clip. And then have his teammate come around the corner while you’re putting a full clip on the downed guy because you know he has self-revive and if you don’t do anything about it, he’s just going to get right back up.”

For the two-time, he found some of the close-range fights don’t make sense because of the revive feature. “It’s just so stupid,” he continued. “So stupid!”

That said, he does have a bit of a solution when it comes to self-revives. The game provides an audio indication when someone is revived by teammate or self-revived. He wants an audio cue during the whole revive process.

Without warning, the two-time proceeded to do an impression of being brought back to life by sticking a revive kit in his chest.

After groaning and doing some Oscar-worthy acting, he elaborated on his idea, and explained that it would be a major help if players knew an enemy was self-reviving around the corner.

The concept is simple enoug,h and wouldn’t be a major hurdle for Infinity Ward to implement. Hopefully, they take Doc’s advice seriously and consider adding the revive audio to the game in a future update.

How to find Warzone Leatherface house easter egg on Verdansk map

With Call of Duty: Warzone celebrating its first Halloween, there’s some unique changes to the map: here’s everything you need to know to find and enter Leatherface’s house on the Verdansk map.

Warzone’s Halloween celebrations are well underway, with a ton of new content for players to dive into. This includes a number of ghostly easter eggs, one of which takes the shape of a creepy Leatherface shack located on the Verdansk map.

Leatherface is infamous for his role as the antagonist in The Texas Chainsaw film series. First debuting in 1974, the cannibalistic murderer has been reincarnated multiple times. You can even unlock Leatherface content in Modern Warfare and Warzone to strike fear into the heart of your opponents.

Leatherface’s house location in Warzone

In order to find his house, you need to head to the very east side of the map, towards Krovnik Farmland. Once there, you’ll find a small hut towards the top of the south east areas of huts.

Once you’re nearby it should be pretty easy to locate – there are plenty of signs that it’s the house of a serial killer. A demonic Leatherface figure will greet you at one of the windows, while body parts are littered around the downstairs. Chainsaw noises will also play from upstairs, before two Leatherface figures ambush you on your trip up the stairs.

There’s no in-game reward for visiting the house of Leatherface, but it’s an awesome feature for fans of The Texas Chainsaw series to enjoy nonetheless. It’s fair to assume you could terrify unsuspecting players by waiting among the scattered body parts and incarnations of the mass murderer.

At the time of writing Halloween is still has over a week left, so Infinity Ward could well have some more tricks (or treats) up their sleeves for the Haunting of Verdansk event.
