YouTuber Noel Miller dominates CoD: Warzone – using a steering wheel

Popular YouTuber Noel Miller has recently branched out into playing some Call of Duty: Warzone, but with a twist – he’s ditched a normal controller in favor of a steering wheel. 

Noel Miller is perhaps best known for his popular YouTube channel which, at the time of writing, sits at nearly 1.9 million subscribers. He regularly makes a variety of content for his fans to enjoy, including collaborating with his long-time friend and fellow YouTuber Cody Ko. 

However, over on his Twitch stream, the popular ex-Viner has been entertaining his followers with some Warzone, Call of Duty’s sophomore battle royale effort. On April 10, he took this entertainment to another level, plugging a steering wheel into his setup in order to control his player.

Warzone recently hit 50 million players.

The biggest problem with this setup, aside from the obvious lack of precision, is that basic controllers have two joysticks – one for movement and one for aiming. Ditching these for a steering wheel meant Miller was completely reliant on movement, and couldn’t alter his FOV in any direction. 

This didn’t stop him from racking up some hilarious plays, however. After dying in a match, Miller was transported to the infamous Gulag, where he proceeded to win his 1v1 while using a steering wheel. 

“Oh f**k, I can literally only strafe,” he laughed, in an utterly hilarious clip. Despite being stunned and pinned into a corner, the 30-year-old managed to eliminate his enemy as he was pushed.

“I won! I f**king won,” he creased, much to the surprise of his teammates, who then joined him in fits of laughter. 

Even though he was severely limited in terms of movement, the steering wheel came into its own when driving vehicles, allowing Miller to put on quite a good Uber impression as he picked up his teammates. 

It’s fair to say that, while we’re not sure anyone asked for Warzone gameplay while using a steering wheel, it made for a number of hilarious moments for Miller’s watching audience.

It’s unlikely he’ll be pulling off any high-kill wins with this strategy though, but if you want that kind of action, check out this insane 100 kill world record from a squad of pro players.

After revealing Black Ops Cold War’s Zombies mode back in September, Treyarch has now done a deep dive into all the changes coming to the mode. It seems like, in some regards, it’s going to be a completely different experience this time around.

If you’re excited about Black Ops Cold War’s iteration of Zombies but are hungry for more details, then you’ll be happy to know that Treyarch just delivered.

Thanks to a new blog post, the developer has given fans a deep dive into all the new changes coming to the game. While the developer ended up confirming a number of different features that previously leaked a few days back, they also revealed some wholly new information.

New perks for Zombies

While the developer officially confirmed the six perks that will be available at launch, including the exact statistics they will change, more will be announced when new maps get added to the game, in true Treyarch fashion.

The ones currently implemented, however, are sure to please longtime fans.

  • Jugger-Nog: 50% increase in health
  • Quick Revive: 50% increase in health regen speed
  • Speed Cola: 15% increase in reload speed
  • Stamin-Up: Increase in sprinting speed (percentage unclear)
  • Deadshot Daquri: ADS automatically moves sights to enemy weak spot (aim-assist)
  • Elemental Pop: Every bullet has a chance to apply random Ammo Mod effect

Black Ops Cold War Zombies weapons and scorestreaks

While weapon rarities isn’t new information for Black Ops Cold War Zombies, as it was previously announced by Treyarch during the initial reveal, the developer has finally gone into more detail about what it all means.

Like Warzone, each weapon that you pull from the wall or Mystery Box will be a certain weapon: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. As expected, the higher the weapon rarity, the higher damage it deals and the more attachments it’ll have.

In addition, the mystery box will now contain scorestreaks on top of that, which was easily one of the coolest part of the original reveal trailer.

  • Combat Bow
  • Sentry Turret
  • War Machine
  • Chopper Gunner
  • Self-Revive

Right now, it’s unclear if the only way that players will be able to get their hands on these valuable items will be through the Mystery Box, although previous leaks have indicated that Zombies will also be able to drop them.

All weapons in Black Ops Cold War, including the ones pulled from Mystery Boxes, have rarities.

New Exfil feature

The final feature that Treyarch revealed new details about was the new Exfil feature, which allows players to end their match before they die. According to the devs, you’ll only be able to do this from Round 10 onwards.

That being said, if you’re able to reach the extraction point within the time allotted, you’ll receive extra XP, as well as some Raw Aetherium Crystals, which can be used to upgrade your weapons.

All of this, combined with all the leaks we know including the armor changes, the upgrade system, and the salvage system, which have now all been confirmed by Treyarch, makes it seem like this year’s iteration is going to be wild.
