Well-known Twitch streamer Dr. Disrespect is known for frequenting various battle royale games such as Fortnite, PUBG, and recently, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout mode. Having hosted several streams while the beta for the latter was open, many would likely value his words and opinions on the BR genre. After all, he has the credentials, and according to Dr. Disrespect, Blackout outshines PUBG.
Of course, the battle royale mode was in beta form and several changes, especially to the armor, should be made by launch. Now that it has ended, the good doctor has seen fit to return to PUBG but couldn't help comparing it to Blackout. His comparison began after getting down in PUBG and compared the shooting mechanics of the two battle royale games. Essentially, he stated Blackout felt like there was shooting involved, but PUBG felt weird.
In fact, referring to his opponent, Dr. Disrespect stated the following:
“Even though I’m jumping and whatever and I barely peek ‘em...all of a sudden, like, the way he’s looking, he’s not even looking at me. It’s indirect. It’s so phony. This game’s such a hack.”
He then, as most gamers do, went on a rant about how much he hated the game and playing it before apologizing for his language and continuing his comparison of the two games. Those interested to hear the doctor's opinion can check out the full clip below:
Of course, Dr. Disrespect isn't the only popular BR steamer checking out Call of Duty's rendition of the trending battle royale mode. In all actuality, Fortnite steamer Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins has been confirmed to appear in the TwitchCon Doritos Bowl, the first-ever Blackout tournament that also features Jack 'CouRageJD' Dunlop, Michael 'Shroud' Grzesiek, and Ben 'DrLupo' Lupo.
For those interested in Blackout, it's also worth mentioning that Treyarch has some extensive post-launch plans for the BR. The biggest takeaway from that, for some, is that player feedback is accounted, as evidenced by the aforementioned changes to the armor. These changes then are likely to preserve the game's replayability. Tell us, Ranters, what BR Game do you think is best?
