Herschel “Dr Disrespect” Beahm IV stopped showing off his own game DEADROP to react to Counter-Strike 2.

After a few weeks of hints and teasers surrounding the possibility of a second Counter-Strike on Source 2, Valve finally revealed what developers have been working on. In fact, a limited test with deathmatch and competitive matchmaking on Dust2 has already opened for certain players.

A lot has been shown off by Valve already, including updated maps, new gameplay, and the implementation of sub-tick rates. The Doc stopped what he was doing to check out the news and give his initial reaction.

Dr Disrespect feels positive about Counter-Strike 2

During a live stream on March 22, Dr Disrespect abruptly stopped showing off his battle royale DEADROP to check out the official Counter-Strike 2 announcement.

“The game looks really good. It’s so clean looking, y’know?” Dr Disrespect said.

While the Two-Time is not really big into the CSGO scene, he seemed hyped about the classic FPS thanks to the much-needed upgrades. He even said he “wouldn’t mind” going to a Counter-Strike tournament, including a Grand Final in Brazil.

“I’d like to go like a Grand Final in Brazil, Astralis versus the top Brazilian team for the Grand Final championship, yknow. Just to be in the crowd, in Brazil, at some massive stadium… If I was Counter-Strike right now, I’d be planning that. I’d try to get that lined up,” Dr Disrespect said.

As a battle royale fan who currently has a focus on Apex Legends and Call of Duty, it’s not clear if Dr Disrespect will start grinding Counter-Strike 2 once it comes out. The highly anticipated FPS upgrade is coming out in the summer of 2023. Until then, the Doc has time to focus on his own game.
