Colorblind Modern Warfare streamer shows why he can’t defuse bombs IRL

A colorblind Twitch streamer blew up after being tasked with cutting different colored wires to defuse a bomb in Call of Duty Modern Warfare.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s campaign has been celebrated as the best in the series since the original trilogy. Throughout the five-hour story-driven mode, the gameplay switches up from the typical run-and-gun style on several occasions such as when players are forced to defuse a bomb.

Colorblind streamer Quirkitized was over half-way through the campaign and just about to finish the “Wolf’s Den” mission where the bomb-defusing segment occurs. 

ActivisionModern Warfare’s campaign has been well-recieved.

During this portion, players are told by Farah Karim which wires to cut on a bomb strapped to their target, Al-Qatala leader Omar ‘The Wolf’ Sulaman. The problem, however, is that Quirkitized has difficulty determining which color is which.

“Uh,” the Twitch streamer gasped after being told to cut the green wire by the NPC. The confused player proceeded to frantically move his cursor over numerous wires but didn’t know what to do. 

After taking too long to cut the wire, the bomb exploded, killing the broadcaster and ending the game.

“Which one’s green?” the streamer shouted as the death screen popped up after the explosion. “I hate being colorblind! No, f**k. We’re dead. We’re f***ing dead.” 

ActivisionModern Warfare made $600 million in just three days.

Luckily, the game has a very forgiving checkpoint system so he was able to try his luck at defusing the bomb again right away. This time, he took his time and discovered that Activision may have taken people with sight issues into consideration when they made the mission. 

On his second go, the streamer noticed that when he hovered over the wire it would say what color it was on screen, making the whole defusal stage much, much easier. 

“Ohhh, okay!” the relieved Quirkitized sighed after he realized he could just read what color the wires were. He would go on to complete the stage and move onto the next mission in the campaign. 

While Quirkitized may be been able to defuse a bomb in a video game because of a smart decision by Modern Warfare’s developers, it’s unlikely he would be as lucky if he ever had to perform a similar task in real life.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
