A popular TikTok video capturing the moment a Call of Duty Black Ops 2 player united with his teammates in person has gone viral.

The video was originally posted by user Kevin, better known by his username “leftmysoul.” In the video, a camera follows behind the CoD player as he walks onto the New York City street where his friends are waiting.

“Oh my God,” the Call of Duty player screams when he sees his online comrades. The three young men quickly embrace and hug it out. After all, Kevin had just flown from the other side of the United States for this very moment.

Black Ops 2 was a major part of leftmysoul’s childhood.

The video’s caption reads, “tb (throwback) when I flew to New York from California to meet my PlayStation friends!”

The caption also provides some insight into what game mode leftmysoul and his friends enjoyed playing the most, but it shouldn’t come as much of a shocker for anyone who played Black Ops 2 back in the day.

“Met these guys when I was around 12 and we have countless memories on Black Ops 2 Zombies,” it read.

Zombies first appeared in Call of Duty dating back to World at War, when players would fight waves of Nazi Zombies in a co-op mode.

The mode was a massive hit, and the zombie trend returned with Black Ops and continued on from there.

Leftmysoul’s video would end up getting reposted on the official Daquan Instagram account. Thanks to the profile’s 14 million followers, the video went viral, scoring a whopping two million views in mere hours.

Thanks to the internet, air travel, and modern gaming, players from all walks of life can meet up in person – making for some truly magical moments.

There’s no telling what the future will hold as technology improves and more online friendships surge into real-life meetups.


Dr Disrespect rants to himself for 10 mins after accidentally muting mic

Streaming superstar Dr Disrespect accidentally muted his microphone just as he began a legendary-looking rant about Call of Duty: Warzone, and may inadvertently have created a new trend in streaming at the same time.

Doc is undoubtedly one of the biggest personalities out there on the internet, but like anyone else, he can still fall victim to the treacherous mindset of getting tilted. 

Like all professionals, he usually does a good job of keeping the speed, violence, and momentum directed at opponents. But during a recent stream, he experienced one Warzone death due to flashbangs too many and took it out on his desk instead.

With a slam that would make fellow streaming star, xQc, proud, the Two-Time let his desk have it just as he was entering into what seemed like quite the heated exposition on the role of flashes grenades in Warzone.

The only problem was that his smack muted the microphone and he didn’t realize it, leading to what may have been the best mime impression on Twitch for the next 10-plus minutes.

It genuinely seems like the 2019 Streamer of the Year had no idea he was basically just talking to himself, as you can even see him going into bits and continuing to rant before he unmutes. It seemed to work out fine though, as he made a pretty penny in donations from viewers telling him they couldn’t hear.

Was it really a mistake, or a bold new strategy in streaming?

“Well, that’s what happens when you slam sh*t around, you know?” Doc reflected. “I think I got like, $100 bucks from people telling me I’m muted. Hey Alex, next time mute me for like two hours, yeah.”

If Dr Disrespect hasn’t chosen a Halloween costume for this year, maybe going trick-or-treating as a mime might be his best option at this point.

Speaking of Halloween, the good doctor’s annual Doctober costume contest is nearing its conclusion as hundreds of fans have submitted their best cosplays, hoping for a chance to be selected among the best. The winners are due to be announced in the upcoming few days, but you can check out some of the best costume submissions so far here.
