Shroud rages at “trash” Battlefield V after ridiculous bug ruins match

Michael ‘Battlefield V, no matter how crispy his shot is.

The former CS:GO pro has a massive following on Twitch, in part due to his immense skill with a mouse and keyboard, seemingly able to transition from one game to another without any sort of struggle to adapt.

Just because he’s brilliant doesn’t mean the games always work the way he wants them to though, as he found out on his return to Battlefield V when he encountered a V-1 Rocket bug that has been affecting the game for some time.

Respawn EntertainmentShroud was incensed when Battlefield V wouldn’t let him call in a V-1 Rocket.

While playing during his August 7 stream, the Canadian found himself picking enemies off with ease, and after breaking through the 41,500 points barrier with his squad, found himself able to call in the V-1 Rocket, an explosive missile which can wipe out enemy opponents in one blast.

Unfortunately, as the 25-year-old attempted to call his streak in, he was struck by a bug which stopped him from raining fire down on his opponents, dying over and over again as his anger grew, and his bomb remained somewhere in the sky.

“Dude, call the… This game is just trash!” roared shroud in frustration. “Why is it so hard to call a fucking… fuck! Call V-1. Call V-1! I’m going to fucking break my everything. Ready, okay, V-1 Rocket. Woo, trash game! That still exists, even to this day!”

Shroud was finally able to call in his V-1 and do some damage, before explaining how the infuriating bug works to his audience, who seemed confused by what had just happened.

The Twitch streamer explained: “So the bug is when you die with your binoculars out, and you get respawned, your binoculars are going to be back out, but you can’t actually aim. It’s literally the worst. It’s the worst that the bug is still a thing!”

This issue was first reported back in November 2018, but DICE have yet to fix the bug, much to the annoyance of shroud.

Unsurprisingly, the Canadian didn’t remain on Battlefield V for too much longer, shutting it down after just one more match and heading back to Overwatch.


Dr Disrespect claims a new Battlefield battle royale could rival Warzone

With Battlefield 6 fast approaching, YouTube star and battle royale savant Dr Disrespect believes a new attempt from EA could liven up the genre, and stand tall against the likes of Activision’s Call of Duty: Warzone.

It’s been just over two years since the last Battlefield title was released. Despite an attempt to capitalize on the hype of the battle royale genre in 2018, EA’s ‘Firestorm’ mode mostly fell short with Battlefield 5.

It dropped players into “Battlefield’s biggest map ever” and provided all the familiar tools of destruction. Yet a buggy release and lackluster player base left it more or less forgotten in a matter of months.

With Battlefield 6 next on the agenda for EA, the second time could be the charm. No one appears more excited for a fresh attempt than FPS expert Dr Disrespect.

Battlefied’s Firestorm mode gave us the biggest map in franchise history.

Following a handful of leaks, we now know for certain that Battlefield 6 is targeting a 2021 release. With that in mind, Dr Disrespect was all too excited when discussing the game’s potential during a recent YouTube stream.

“I just feel like… EA’s gotta be working on some awesome battle royale experience with the Battlefield IP,” he said. “It’s just a no-brainer at this point.”

Despite the first attempt falling short, he believes a new take from the Battlefield devs could put them on the map in a big way.

“EA and Activision have always gone back and forth competing directly in the FPS genre.” With a new BR, Doc believes it has the potential to compete directly with Warzone.

“I’m excited because their engine, with all the tools and tech they have in place… they could do something pretty incredible if they put everything into it.”

The relevant topic begins at the 1:42:30 mark below.

From enormous player counts to a diverse range of vehicles and of course, Battlefield’s trademark destructibility, the recipe is there for a successful BR, according to Dr Disrespect.

It’s only a matter of time before EA lifts the lid on the upcoming AAA title. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on any future battle royale news but for now, you can catch up on everything Battlefield 6 right here.
