Dr Disrespect seems to be a fan of the new Call of Duty: Warzone battle royale, but some distracting sounds in the Gulag may have pushed him past his breaking point during his March 11 stream.

The Gulag is where players are sent after their first death in Warzone, where they face off in a 1v1 matchup with another downed player in an attempt to earn their way back into the match.

During the faceoffs, other players can watch and even throw rocks at those currently competing, but the simulated crowd noise of prisoners cheering that Infinity Ward added to enhance the atmosphere have quickly gotten on The Doc’s nerves.

The Gulag is a unique take on respawning in battle royale games.

Doc had just lost a 1v1 faceoff in the Gulag on stream (which could have contributed to his rant), and promptly blamed the piped-in crowd noise in the arena.

“If I f**king mute this game I would play way better, it’s just a distraction,” the Two Time lamented. “I got the f*cking crowd coming up here.”

What followed was several seconds of Doc doing his best impression of an annoying crowd, and losing a little bit of his sanity at the same time, yelling: “I can’t hear a goddamn thing,” before finally regaining his composure and heading back into the action.

Other than the Gulag’s crowd noise, Disrespect seems to be enjoying Call of Duty’s new battle royale mode, and he isn’t alone.

One aspect in particular he praised was Warzone’s large map compared to other battle royales, but not every player agrees with the streamer on that.

Players have complained about the short “out of bounds” warnings that keep them from dropping into the game effectively to start things off.

It’s still early on in Warzone’s life though, so Infinity Ward could definitely make some changes as more players try things out. Whether the new battle royale will be able to stick around for long haul though remains to be seen.

A small Twitch streamer became emotional after YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg donated to him. The personality thanked the star for bringing attention to his channel.

For many viewers around the world, PewDiePie has been the face of online entertainment over the last decade. The 30-year-old boasts 107 million YouTube subscribers in 2020.

In September, the content creator went viral when he gave a small Twitch streamer his very first donation ever. And on October 15, the personality became emotional when the Swede donated to him for the second time.

Small streamer emotional after PewDiePie donates

On September 24, Twitch streamer BluWolfie123 was playing the wildly popular title Among Us when he received a donation from PewDiePie. Stunned and not sure if it was really the YouTuber, the personality exclaimed “That’s f**king insane. What the hell! It’s my first donation!”

On October 15, the entertainer decided to donate to the streamer a second time. “This is the same [streamer] from last time. Hey, he grew in viewers, good for him!” Pewds said, as he donated another $100. Shocked, BluWolfie exclaimed, “What the f**k?!”

The Twitch streamer then asked if PewDiePie was watching him live, before thanking him: “Holy s**t, thank you! I wanted to say thank you. I commented on your last video, but it got buried. Yo, if you’re there, I wanted to say thank you before. I wanted to thank you directly. If you’re here, thank you! You’re f**king awesome! I can not thank you enough.”

(Topic starts at 5:00.)

Kjellberg thanked Wolfie for his kind words and then told viewers to check out the user’s Twitch channel. “Check out BluWolfie, he’s so wholesome,” he said. The streamer further commented on the situation on his About page. “I got super lucky thanks to the Pewds and his community and I’m super happy.”

Pewds also gave away money to several other small channels on the Amazon-owned streaming platform – a few of whom cried over the popular YouTuber popping in to watch their broadcast.

This isn’t the first time PewDiePie has donated money. For months, he has been donating all of his streaming subscriber money to various charities. In October, he sent a mental health charity $144k.
