Popular Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect believes developers of upcoming battle royale game’s must follow Fortnite‘s unique lead – by adopting a third-person shooting model, rather than the more common first person perspective.

The Doc explained that the battle royale market was becoming increasingly saturated, with Battlefield V set to release their take on the genre – Firestorm – on March 25.

With Fortnite and Apex Legends still dominating the industry, he believes that developers should take inspiration from Epic Games, who are one of the few developers to use a third-person mechanic exclusively in their game.

EPIC GAMESFortnite is one of the few battle royale games to use the third person mechanic.

After watching some gameplay of Battlefield V, and giving his thoughts and predictions for the game’s success, the Doc began to speculate on how the genre can truly evolve.

“The industry is flooded with first-person shooter games just trying to figure out what the perfect formula is to extend their shelf life,” he explained while playing PUBG. “Fortnite is the only one that is third person and is absolutely destroying the industry.

“The next studio that produces a third person Triple A military style shooter, that’s battle royale and can be competitive multiplayer as well, It’s going to be the next big thing”

Dr Disrespect went on to give the example of newly-released The Division 2, as a game that excels in a third-person perspective.

“I think The Division 2, if designed right, could be a pretty fun multiplayer/battle royale experience. I think they need to add more mechanics and verticality to their gameplay but I like the look and feel of it.”

PUBG of course does offer a third person perspective, but it also has first person too, splitting the player base. There are also complaints about PUBG’s movement mechanics and ‘clunky’ controls when in third person.

It remains to be seen whether Battlefield will hit the nail on the head with their new mode with streamers such as shroud already voicing their concerns after watching the early game footage.

Time will tell whether Battlefield can prove their early critics wrong and add another worthy competitor to the battle royale market.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left in awe after Sykkuno managed to shoot him dead on the OTV Rust server, and it was safe to say he was impressed by the streamer’s aim, saying “you killed me, you’re amazing!”

The Offline TV Rust sever has been a huge talking point since the start of this year, as with the enormous host of streamers participating there are endless amounts of content for fans to consume on the daily.

The server even ended up needing to be split into two after people’s varying playstyles caused some tension and calls for a need to separate PVP-focused players and roleplay-focused players.

While it was originally released in 2013, Rust has experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the OTV server.

However, that’s not to say that there haven’t been plenty of iconic moments between streamers, as even though the game can get pretty violent, the vast range of streamer interactions has led to some great scenes for fans.

That was the case for Sykkuno fans when he managed to kill shroud, leaving everyone impressed with his skills.

While they were competing for the Oil Rig, Sykkuno managed to get shroud with his gun as he jumped, and it didn’t seem like shroud expected it at all, dying with a bewildered “no, Sykkuno!”

Sykkuno’s hand immediately flew to his mouth, laughing and apologizing for the abrupt kill.

Michael sounded equally as impressed as he did betrayed, after a few seconds of silence saying “Sykkuno you killed me, you’re amazing!” But the compliments didn’t end there, with Micheal adding, “you destroyed me!” and even “you’re the better gamer, man” to which Sykkuno replied, “no, no, most definitely not.”

Sykkuno has talked previously about how he’s a “humongous fan of shroud” in the past, so this interaction definitely proved to be a positive one for the rising streamer.

One fan on Twitter said, “Sykkuno downed shroud and even shroud is proud of him,” another saying “that Sykkuno/shroud friendly PVP was beautiful to watch… what in the wholesome rivalry.”

The PVP moment was definitely an entertaining one all round, and while the results were unexpected, no one was more impressed than shroud himself.
