xQc defends Call of Duty while praising Modern Warfare

To begin with, videogamedunkey recently uploaded a clip on YouTube. It was basically a criticism of all the announcements and reveals that took place in this month’s Summer Game Fest. While hating on almost each presentation, he also mentioned that Call of Duty’s new installment didn’t look good either.

Reacting to the session on Modern Warfare II, he said in his video that its predecessor from 2019 didn’t change anything. And that it wasn’t good at all in terms of bringing something fresh to the series. He also said that the upcoming sequel won’t be promising enough due to similar reasons.

“The campaigns are so f*****g pathetic, so outdated. It’s just, I don’t know why they showed this, it looks like s**t,” he said about MWII’s gameplay footage.

It didn’t take long, however, for streamer and popular gamer xQc to notice videogamedunkey’s rant clip. While reacting to his opinions on the Summer Game Fest and specifically Call of Duty, he showed a total disagreement with the critic.

According to xQc, Modern Warfare changed everything for the franchise in terms of offering a new approach.

The streamer said that the critic was being “overly negative for no reason”.

“It changed the approach, I think, to overall battle royales with the new system of being brought back; also the Gulag was great. It was a fantastic way to make battle royales more enjoyable.”

Adding further, he also said that Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s team “revitalized a part” of the game for a better experience.
