Twitch star Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar has explained why he doesn’t “like this type of combat” in Call of Duty: Warzone, noting that it is a little too similar to Apex Legends.
After weeks of speculation, teases, and hype, Call of Duty: Warzone finally released worldwide on March 10, giving fans of the battle royale genre another title that they could try their hand at.
Since then, over 6 million players have dropped in for at least one game, with streaming stars like Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek and Dr Disrespect making it their new game of choice. Though they’ve had complaints about the game, no streamer has gone as far as Summit has in explaining why he isn’t a huge fan of how the game currently plays.
During his March 12 stream, the popular variety broadcaster has been playing Warzone when he found himself eliminated from a match and needing to be bought back. In his downtime in waiting for a redeploy, Summit chatted with his fans – with some telling him that he just needed to learn the game a little more.
“You guys, I just don’t like this type of combat – the whole just spraying at each other and there’s not many opportunities to miss and it’s just who can miss as little as possible, that’s not my favorite type of gameplay,” he said.
The former Counter-Strike player added that he felt that Warzone is “the same as Apex” as players will “bullet sponge, heal up, respawn,” and repeat similar processes over and over. “I’m telling you, if you haven’t played yet, that’s going to be a lot of your fights, you’ll have to get used to that.”
Despite his complaints, Summit has continued to play Warzone on his streams, even pulling off some nice kills in the process.
Whether or not he sticks around, or decides to head back to games like GTA V and Escape from Tarkov, still remains to be seen.
