Twitch star Dr Disrespect is obsessed with Escape from Tarkov, however he was left baffled when he encountered the game’s workbench system, and exclaimed that it “makes no sense.”

Escape from Tarkov originally released back in 2016, but the Russian developed title exploded in popularity from streamers like Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek playing it on a regular basis.

Twitch is in a craze over the FPS in 2020, and Dr Disrespect is among them, exclaiming he has a “slight addiction” to the game, although during his January 6 broadcast, he found himself not very fond of the workbench system.

Doc can’t make sense of Escape from Tarkov’s workbench

In middle of his broadcast, the Two-Time Champion ran into the workbench for the first time, and had a hilarious reaction to it after being left puzzled by how it’s supposed to work.

“A chocolate milk gets you a godd*mn bullet. A chocolate milk and a pack of cigarettes gets you a shotty. Okay. A bu**plug and a strangle rope, green aloe vera drink, and a raspberry Jamba juice,” he mockingly read aloud, as he went over the ingredients at the bench.

The popular streamer then exclaimed, “None of this makes sense to me. And I don’t like it! I can’t stand what I’m looking at here!”

Doc appeared to be overwhelmed by the gun customization at first as well, yelling “can we do one step at a time?!” as he rotated the gun with an insane amount of options.

However, after he examined his weapon and saw his equipped PEQ-15 tactical device attached, he admitted to his viewers that maybe he was wrong. “Okay, this game’s pretty sick!” he said.

The Two-Time then gave props to the developers over their intricate customization system. “I got to give it to these guys, man!”

Despite not being the biggest fan of the workbench, the streamer has admitted before that “he has a lot to learn,” so perhaps the more he dives into the FPS title, the more he will learn to love it.

Dr Disrespect continues to be one of the top streamers on Twitch, with over 3.9 million followers on his channel, and consistently pulling in 30,000 viewers a broadcast.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
