Popular CoD streamer Dr Disrespect believes that the Warzone devs need to provide the game with a “total engine rebuild” if they want it to compete with other notable battle royale titles.
Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV, commonly known online as Dr Disrespect, has never been hesitant about sharing his thoughts on Warzone. He recently vented his frustration with the audio, map changes, and solo matches in Season 3.
However, he’s also expressed his admiration of Verdansk ’84, and shown off his Gulag strategy. He still finds enjoyment in the game and has suggested certain improvements, but now he’s claiming that it needs a “total engine rebuild.”
Dr Disrespect gave his thoughts on Warzone’s future during a stream on May 20, claiming that the game’s major issues are a result of how “poor” the game engine is.
“Everything bad in Warzone, everything that [went wrong] in Season One, Two, Three, the whole narrative and buildup, the live event, it’s all got something to do with how limiting the engine is…what it can’t do,” he claimed.
Warzone currently runs on Infinity Ward’s “8.0” game engine build, and the streamer feels that this is particularly “limiting” to the game’s success. “There’s a lot they can’t do with it,” he said. “How to fix it… I’m not sure.”
The Doc compared the game to other battle royale titles like Apex Legends, PUBG, and Fortnite. He hopes that the Warzone devs will try to “emulate” their performance.
“The other engines out there, how they’re designed, how efficient they are, there’s so many benefits. They make the whole process — matches, live events, lobbies — much easier, much more streamlined,” he elaborated.
He also pointed to Blackout, which ran on the “Black Ops 4” engine back in 2018 and helped fill the lobbies with approximately 100 players at the same time.
Dr Disrespect is always open to giving suggestions on how to play the game better, and his followers are willing to listen. However, Raven Software probably won’t be making any major changes to their software in the near future.
