Herschel “Dr Disrespect” Beahm is not too hopeful about Call of Duty: Warzone 2.

Warzone Season 5 is the last season in the current Call of Duty: Warzone as developers prepare for the launch of Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2. The sequel is said to be very different from the current game, with entirely new maps and terrain as well as restarting player progress. Despite the interesting new possibilities, Dr Disrespect is not convinced it will be a hit.

The Two-Time is no stranger to dissing Warzone. He has deleted the game multiple times, but comes back and leaves frustrated time and again. This time, Dr Disrespect warned developers that they need to make some huge upgrades if they want Warzone 2 to be a success.

“Your audio f—ing sucks. It does. Your map sucks. Your audio sucks. No wonder nobody’s playing it! Nobody. It’s dead,” Dr Disrespect ranted during a recent stream.

But that wasn’t the end of his complaints. After losing in a Gulag face-off to an enemy hidden in the shadows, Dr Disrespect went on a second rant about the state of the current Warzone, calling the game a joke.

“Holy s—. You can’t see anything. It drives me nuts,” Dr Disrespect said.

The Doc estimated that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 will only survive a month after their launch later this year due to what he regards as an underwhelming map, poor audio quality, and bad lighting.

“I mean, fingers crossed they do something different. But if they continue to do this type of s—, with these types of formula and these design decisions…From a creative standpoint, this franchise is done.”

Dr Disrespect backlash

Dr Disrespect bashes Warzone 2 ahead of Deadrop release

The Doc is a fan of battle royale games. His new studio, Midnight Society, is currently creating its own unique take on the genre with a tower-based battle royale, Deadrop. With a background in map design, Dr Disrespect clearly has a vision for an entirely new battle royale experience that takes place within one complex building.

It’s possible that Dr Disrespect is being harsh just to convince fans to try out Deadrop instead of yet another Call of Duty game but the frustration seemed genuine. He added that he’s played “good Call of Duty” games before, saying “that’s my game growing up.”

“How are these things getting approved?” the Doc ranted.

While Dr Disrespect feels Warzone 2 has potential with enough changes, the streamer is most likely leaving all gaming behind in the near future to focus on Deadrop. He recently told fans he’s debating leaving streaming for one or two years. Only time will tell if Dr Disrespect sticks around long enough to try out Warzone 2 before his hiatus.
