Herschel “Dr Disrespect” Beahm is not a fan of Call of Duty: Warzone at this point, especially after the game’s dev team was accused of stealing a skin design from the Doc’s upcoming battle royale DEADROP.

Dr Disrespect has made it abundantly clear that he no longer wants to play Warzone. Unfortunately, many of his friends still do. He was recently pulled into the game by TimTheTatman, but his fans could tell he wasn’t into it.

At one point, the Two-Time appeared to fall to his death and TimTheTatman expressed surprise. While in the Gulag, Dr Disrespect expressed that he’s just “ready to move on,” clearly not feeling enough passion about the game to try.

“I just… I’m ready to move on, actually. Game’s a snoozefest, man. I’ve checked out. I’m checked out of Warzone. I’m not interested. Look how ugly this game is, man,” Dr Disrespect said.

But it’s not only the game itself that has rubbed Dr Disrespect the wrong way.

Dr Disrespect calls out Warzone developers for stealing his skin

During his mid-game rant about Warzone, Dr Disrespect turned his attention on the developers’ themselves for allegedly stealing a skin from DEADROP.

“They stole a fiction for one of our concept arts just like they stole the fiction of one of our characters…I don’t like them,” Dr Disrespect said.

This was in reference to accusations leveled against Warzone devs in August, with some players noticing striking similarities between a DEADROP skin and a new Warzone skin. The glowing skull mask, black leather armor, and hood were very familiar to fans of Dr Disrespect who have been watching for DEADROP updates.

DEADROP is Dr Disrespect’s new take on the battle royale genre. The game is currently in development, and his team is releasing content updates frequently. The extraction shooter by Midnight Society has been all over the internet, making it not too difficult to believe that a Warzone artist saw the skin and used it as inspiration.

For now, it’s unclear if Call of Duty developers purposefully lifted Dr Disrespect’s design. But this isn’t the first time Activision has been accused of stealing skins.
