Nadeshot Believes Treyarch Have to Do One Major Thing With Blackout to Keep Up With Fortnite

Since its reveal, many have wondered how Black Ops 4’s upcoming ‘Blackout’ mode would stand up against the likes of Fortnite, which has become, by far, the most popular game in the battle royale genre.

While many are not expecting Blackout to challenge Fortnite any time soon, some believe that there are things Treyarch can do for their game to at least keep up.

100 Thieves CEO and former CoD pro player Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag thinks that Treyarch’s tallest and most important task will be to adapt to the player-base.

This is Call of Duty Battle Royale.

I think Treyarch’s biggest challenge will be adaptation. With how often Epic has changed their map with new points of interests and in-game content, I feel like they’ve set a wildly high precedent for Battle Royale.

I hope CoD can keep up.

As Nadeshot alludes to in his tweet, Epic Games has consistently added new content, made fundamental changes, and quick-fire adjustments to Fortnite in order to keep the gaming experience fun and fresh.

This has allowed them to set a high precedent that no other battle royale game has even come close to matching thus far.


It will undoubtedly be difficult for Treyarch to bring Blackout to the standards the battle royale community has come to expect, especially since this will be the first BR game in Call of Duty history.

Their best bet may be to consistently pump new content into the game and make changes based on the feedback their receive from the player-base.

Blackout will be released on October 12 as part of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Players can try the mode out early in the Private Beta that will start on September 10 for the PS4 and September 14 for the Xbox One and PC.

Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
