Popular Battle Royale streamer, Dr Disrespect, tried both games, but only liked one of them. The returning Halo franchise from a 7-year hiatus managed to impress the 2-time streamer of the year.

Despite a great open-beta launch, and mostly positive reviews from the community. Microsoft still has a lot of things to worry about, which involves cheaters, bug abusers, and hackers. So far, streamers and fans have only encountered a few of these miscreants, which is a red flag for Microsoft, and they need to introduce a kernel-level anti-cheat system.

Dr Disrespect doesn’t want Halo Infinite to suffer the same fate as Warzone

Warzone isn’t the greatest Battle Royale title anymore, even though it had the potential to be. The problem of the unstoppable invasion of hackers pushed the stand-alone title to ruins. The game is in a terrible state, which makes things horrendous. Something similar has been seen in the open-beta of Halo Infinite.

Streamers like Doc, TimTheTatman, and more have bumped into hackers in the free-to-play multiplayer of Halo. The 39-year-old streamer is afraid that if Microsoft isn’t cautious about the game, it could slip out of their hands fairly soon. The game is amazing and fans have wholeheartedly accepted everything that has been added to the game.

In a recent tweet, Dr Disrespect conveyed his fear about cheating in Halo, saying, “Cheating in Halo is a scary thing to think about.
