Modern Warfare streamer goes viral with insane drum kit snipe

A Call of Duty Twitch streamer by the name DeanoBeano recently crossed two of his passions – Modern Warfare and drumming. The results, as you’d expect, were hilarious but also actually weirdly successful. 

DeanoBeano is a Twitch streamer based in Ontario, Canada who, at the time of writing, has just shy of 1,200 followers on the streaming platform.

According to his Twitch bio, he “stream drums on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and video games on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays”.

However, recent streams have seen him combine the two, swapping out a standard controller for a drum kit while playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Surprisingly, it worked out pretty well in his favor.

Modern Warfare has millions players worldwide, but this might be the first time anyone’s swapped a controller for a drum kit.

The biggest problem with this setup, aside from the obvious, is that basic controllers have two joysticks – one for movement and one for aiming.

Ditching these for a drum kit meant Deano was almost entirely reliant on light taps to alter his FOV, and then firing once a shot was perfectly lined up. The shooting mechanic was commanded by tapping a cymbal and Deano got it on point during a game of Hardpoint.

On the new Oil Rig map, Deano kept his distance and lined up a shot as an enemy moved for the hill. The result was an AX-50 shot to the torso, and the kill was complete.

The clip quickly went viral on Twitter, with many Modern Warfare fans in disbelief at the ability to get a kill with a drum kit.

It’s certainly not the first time we’ve seen players swapping controllers out for bizarre alternatives. Back in April, YouTube star Noel Miller went viral while using a steering wheel as a controller, even winning his Gulag 1v1.

With millions of players worldwide, we’re not sure what controller alternative we’ll see next, but given the success of drum kits and steering wheels, nothing should be written off.

Another massive Warzone event is heating up as popular content creator and battle royale champion Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is hosting his very own tournament with $300,000 on the line.

Following close behind Vikkstar’s original Warzone competition, HusKerrs is next in line for his own huge Call of Duty event. HusKerrs Howl aims to crown the best partners in the world as this unique event focuses on Duos action.

After making history as the first player to pass six figures in Warzone winnings, it’s only fitting that HusKerrs’ event comes with the biggest prize pool yet. A whopping $300,000 is up for grabs over the course of two weeks.

From the teams that will be dropping in to when each round of action is taking place, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event.

What is the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event?

The HusKerrs Howl event is one of the biggest Warzone tournaments to date. Not just in terms of prizing, but in how long it’s set to last and how many teams will be getting involved.

Duos will be dropping into Verdansk across multiple weeks in order to qualify for the Finals. Additionally, there’s also a special one-off Zombie Trios section to get things going before the Duos competition really begins.

A brand new Twitch channel has been created just for this event with HusKerrs set to host. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience. Expect almost every competitor to be sharing their own perspective throughout the tournament as well.

HusKerrs Howl will be starting with a Zombie Royale showdown.

First up is the special Zombie Day event on Friday, October 30 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. This is a unique Trios competition in the Zombie Royale playlists. Only one team can take out the prize for what is essentially a warm-up run before the real show starts up.

The following day on October 31, Duos will be dropping in for the first round of qualifying action. This will be followed up by the second and third rounds on November 5 and November 6 respectively.

Last but not least, the best Duos from the qualifiers will advance through to the Finals. This takes place on November 7 to determine the overall winner of the HusKerrs Howl event.

This particular competition is for Duos only.

This particular Warzone competition is for Duos only and will feature a double-elimination bracket. 16 teams will be dropping in for the first day of action. They will go head to head until the very end with only the Top 3 qualifying for the Finals.

For the final two days of the qualifiers, only eight duos will be playing. From here, the Top 2 make it into the Finals. This makes seven Duos so HusKerrs will be taking the eighth and final spot.

As teams are going head to head, the Duo with the highest point total in each matchup will advance. No different from most Warzone events, teams will be awarded one point per elimination. There’s currently no telling how many points will be awarded for higher placements in each match.

Stay tuned over the coming days for full recaps and results as the action gets underway. Big names such as Symfuhny, Aydan, and TeePee are all expected for the event. So it’s sure to be an intense tournament.
