Popular Twitch streamer Dr. Disrespect stumbled upon an easter egg in Gearbox’s Borderlands 3 that plays off of his popular tagline: violence, speed and momentum.

The Doc is one of the top entertainers on Twitch and he’s built his community on the back of his mantra, which has become synonymous with the streamer at this point.

Anytime the two-time pops off, you can expect to see someone in chat bring it up, but now violence, speed and momentum have found their way into Borderlands 3.

A Dr. Disrespect easter egg in Borderlands 3?

Borderlands 3 comes out officially on September 13 for console players, but the game was available on PC at 4 PM PST on September 12 for PC players.

This means the game has already seen a lot of stream time and even though Dr. Disrespect wasn’t playing it on his channel, he couldn’t help but notice an homage to himself within the game.

The easter egg was found in an operative class mod called “Forceful Disruptor”, which grants +1 Violence, +1 Speed and +1 Momentum (along with +17 percent grenade radius).

Doc called it “the best mod in Borderlands 3” on Twitter, but it remains to be seen if the easter egg will be enough for him to play the game on stream.

There’s no way that a mod granting violence, speed and momentum was just randomly added into Borderlands 3, and Gearbox’s reply to the Doc’s discovery seems to confirm it was intentional.

Does this mean Doc will play Borderlands 3 on stream?

The Borderlands series is pretty popular and with the game coming out on Friday, September 13, it could be one of the site’s most-streamed games this weekend.

Of course, Doc is a big time fan, and CoD partner and with the Modern Warfare Multiplayer beta running through the weekend – there’s a good chance he’ll be sticking to that.

Dr. Disrespect hasn’t given any indication he’ll be playing Borderlands 3 at all, but there’s a better chance of him playing that than WoW Classic, which the streamer has been making fun of almost since release.

Whether or not the streamer decides to play Borderlands 3, he’ll still be sticking to his violence, speed and momentum.

Twitch bot finds PS5s and Xbox Series Xs in-stock so you don’t have to

A popular new Twitch bot is doing all the legwork to help gamers find out what stores have PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles in stock.

Gamers have been hard-pressed to find a next-gen console for themselves or loved ones as the Christmas season approaches. It seems like almost everywhere is sold out, leaving only scalpers who have been selling units for insane markups.

Now, a new Twitch bot has entered the fray and is helping anyone who can’t keep up with the constant refreshing know when they can get their hands on Sony or Microsoft’s new console.

Viewers can simply go to the Twitch channel and watch live as the bot searches through various sites to find inventory. The bot will actively check through Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, and more and state whether they’re out of stock or have consoles in.

As a nice little bonus, the channel even says when the last “drop” was. At the time of publishing, the last store to get both consoles in stock was Walmart at 9:30 PM EST on November 25.

Users can also use the !local command to check any store stock near them.

According to Polygon, the channel is run by Cam Ritz and uses a program called streetmerchant that does the monitoring.

The program’s features page state that it “scrapes multiple websites for patterns of being stocked via API and Chromium.”

Ritz claims that so far, the bot has helped viewers actually find consoles – with a few nabbing Series Xs from GameStop and Sam’s Club.

Unfortunately, for most viewers, watching the stream will result in a near-endless red wave of OUT OF STOCK notifications, further cementing just how difficult it is to find a console this year.

As the days continue and the Christmas season approaches, keeping this channel open may be a great tool if you’re actively still looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Or for those who have managed to already snag a console, it can serve as a reminder of just how difficult it can be.
