OpTic Gaming Call of Duty player Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell has finally explained why his fellow pro players call him ‘Bruce’ instead of his actual name.

When Dashy is streaming, viewers can often hear the OpTic star’s peers in the Call of Duty scene referring to him as Bruce, leaving fans confused as to where this nickname has came from.

Thankfully, Dashy has finally revealed where the name comes from, and told the funny story of how Renato ‘Saints’ Forza originally coined the moniker.

Dashy explained that the nickname began during the World War II season, when his sleep schedule was all over the place. Otell says that one day after waking up, he immediately hopped into a call to play eights with other players and they found out that his voice was incredibly deep when he wakes up.

Saints couldn’t believe how deep Dashy’s voice was, joking: “Is that Batman? Is that Bruce [Wayne]? Yo it’s Dash, I’m just going to call you Bruce from now on.”

Batman is known for speaking in a deeper register in an attempt to disguise himself from those who may recognize his true voice – as shown by Christian Bale in his portrayal of the caped crusader in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.

Dashy clearly doesn’t mind his comparison to Batman, laughing: “Ever since then it’s been a staple, I don’t mind it. I’m Batman, it’s a good compliment.”

OpTic’s Dark Knight has seen his stock rise since the beginning of the World War II season, joining the Greenwall in the off season before the beginning of the Black Ops 4 campaign.

Things have gotten off to a good start for the new-look OpTic Gaming lineup, winning the November 5 CWL 2K tournament without dropping a single map.
