YouTuber plays Modern Warfare using actual bongos with hilarious results

Taking inspiration from YouTube sensation Basically Homeless, Super Louis 64 has created the ultimate Donkey Kong Jungle Beat controller mod for Modern Warfare, using the Nintendo game’s iconic bongos.

While the ongoing debate between controller versus mouse and keyboard remains rife, there are some players who just love to think outside of the box. 

Super Louis 64 has taken inspiration from fellow YouTuber, Basically Homeless, by taking a modded version of Donkey Kong’s iconic bongos and using them in a competitive online first-person shooter — Call of Duty.

Basically Homeless (YouTube)Basically Homeless ran riot in ranked Rainbow 6 Siege with DK’s famous bongos.

Yes, you read that right. Almost three months into Modern Warfare’s lifecycle and most of us are still attempting to fine-tune are in-game settings. On the other side of the fence, however, are players like Super Louis 64. 

A quick glance at their YouTube channel would tell you that this isn’t uncharted territory. From beating Halo 3 with a Guitar Hero controller, to playing Halo Reach with a literal bunch of bananas… You get the gist. 

While on the surface their latest venture is seemingly impossible, Super Louis 64’s attempt at playing Modern Warfare with bongos was more fruitful than you’d initially anticipate. 

The mod did come with its restrictions, though. With no ability to reload, sprint, aim down sights or switch weapons, the odds were most definitely stacked against him. 

Nonetheless, the player hopped right into a Team Deathmatch and landed a kill right off the bat. Pretty impressive, considering the constraints. 

Super Louis also posted a clip from their video to the Modern Warfare subreddit, where the clip was lapped up (earning almost 2k upvotes in less than 24 hours) in a post titled: “I played MW with DK Bongos, 9/10 would bong again.”

One user even prompted a collaboration with Basically Homeless (often referred to as Mr. Hummus) by jesting: “Mr. Hummus wants to know your location.”

I played MW with DK Bongos, 9/10 would Bong Again from modernwarfare

While the pair have both used the bongos to great effect, Mr. Hummus’ attempt even incorporated some ‘authentic’ Donkey Kong audio cues to prompt his weapon to fire.

So next time you’re taken down in a first-person shooter, just know that there’s a sliver of a chance that it could have been done with bongos.

FaZe Blaze’s 153-round Cold War Zombies run ends in disaster – again

FaZe Clan’s Lucas ‘Blaze’ Mosing’s title run in Black Ops Cold War Zombies was clicking and flowing incredible well until it all came crashing to a halt – marking the second time in one week a promising run collapsed on him.

Blaze has been gunning through Zombies with the world-record for Duos fixed in his sights. The target is currently 309 rounds; while completely plausible for players like Blaze, the world hasn’t been on his side during recent attempts.

One of the biggest factors of a successful Zombies run comes down to getting into the right flow with your teammate to grind past the later rounds.

His Ring of Fire-centric run with Twitch streamer GhostzyTV successfully got them over 150 rounds with their setup between the Penthouse and the levels below mowing rows of the undead as they came up.

The game was clicking, the rounds were rolling past, and the streamer as well as his chat were hyped on the progression that was unfolding. Then it all ended.

Shortly after, Blaze took to Twitter to reveal what had happened that suddenly made the Twitch stream shut down.

“My internet just went out.. we were at round 153,” he said. That quickly concluded all the synergy that he and Ghostzy built up in the round.

Shortly before the internet when out, Blaze was really impressed with the communication between the two streamers that made the rounds fly by.

Though it was all for naught, with the duo just needing a few more levels to tie up their personal-best of 164 rounds they notched just days before. However, unlike that attempt which ended in a game crash, this time it only took them two days to get to that ballpark instead of five.

That probably added a bit more salt to the wound since the two streamers were breezing through some of the rounds en route to the coveted 309-mark.

Blaze is nothing if not persistent in Black Ops Cold War Zombies, so there’s no doubt he’ll be able to replicate those numbers again – though hopefully without any game crashes or internet outages.
