Popular YouTuber Jason ‘videogamedunkey’ Gastrow has finally revealed his Call of Duty: Modern Warfare review and those who were expecting it to be hilarious certainly won’t be disappointed. 

The latest installment to the Call of Duty franchise has been met with a mixed reaction from the game’s online community. There are people out there who can’t get enough of the new, slower gameplay, while others just can’t wait to see a nerf released for the 725 shotgun in Multiplayer. 

Dunkey is well known for taking a different, and usually comedic, approach to issues that players are facing in-game, and it was no different with his latest upload to his YouTube channel, which landed on November 4. 

Infinity WardMany players believe Modern Warfare’s 725 shotgun is too overpowered.

The content creator, who has over five million subscribers on the platform, has been reviewing the biggest games for many years. In 2019 alone, he’s released funny videos for WWE 2K20 after its horror show of a release with bugs plaguing the game, as well as Red Dead Redemption 2 and others. 

However, his Modern Warfare video might just be the best yet after he found a way of making everything that fans are concerned about look funnier than ever. Constant claymore deaths? Infuriating but still hysterical. Shotguns being overpowered? Everyone hates it, but why not join the dark side?

There’s a whole lot of that – and more – in this incredible review.

The video, which only lasts just over five minutes, starts off with dunkey trying to do a voiceover but being blown to smithereens by a number of explosives. 

One of the funnier moments comes next as he tries to bypass several claymores that have been placed at such a tight angle that it’s more or less impossible to stop them from harming you. 

Eventually, he finds a solution by allowing another teammate to die at the hands of the deadly equipment, before continuing his run. 

For those who haven’t seen Dunkey’s videos before, it might seem like he’s trashing a lot of the gameplay features and not a fan of the title, but regular viewers will know that it’s just his style and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

Scrapped Warzone finisher would have let players teabag their enemies

While Activision has seemingly scrapped this content, leaked footage has revealed what a proper ‘teabag’ would look like as a Finishing Move in both Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Finishing Moves are all about adding insult to injury. You need to stand directly behind an opponent to get one going, meaning you’ve really outplayed your opposition. While most are harmless, some can really get your enemies seething.

Whether it’s having your pet dog come in to get the kill, or Captain Price flicking a cigar on the corpse of his foe, there’s a lot you can do to get on people’s nerves. Modern Warfare provided dozens of these unique animations that can be used across regular multiplayer and Warzone’s battle royale experience.

Some have certainly toed the line in the past, though leaked footage has shown that Activision once wanted to go well beyond that line. It turns out they had a fully animated teabag emote ready to go.

Labeled as the ‘Bag ‘Em’ Finishing Move in the game’s files, the unreleased animation has you properly embarrassing your target. After stabbing them in the back, your enemy falls to the ground face up. From here, your chosen Operator politely crouches over them, chopping their crotch all the while.

It’s the age-old insult brought to life. Rather than mashing the crouch button to quickly teabag, this animation would have really let you assert dominance. 

There’s no telling why it was never properly released into the game. Though the Finishing Move has seemingly been present in Modern Warfare’s files since Season 3. Developers put the work in to craft the unique animation but it hasn’t yet seen the light of day.

Perhaps it was deemed just a little too crude for the general public. Or maybe it’s being held for a future update down the line. Only time will tell if it ever makes it into Warzone.

Teabagging has been a staple in gaming culture for many years now.

As with the development of any game, there’s always plenty of content cut throughout the process. Though this animation seems completely finished. So Activision had intended to release it at some stage.

For now though, you’ll just have to do things the old-fashioned way. If you’re looking to ridicule your enemies, there’s nothing like some tactical crouching to get the job done.
