Twitch star and former Overwatch pro, Felix "xQc" Lengyel recently tried his hand at Call of Duty: Vanguard despite the decidedly mixed reception the game has received.
This isn't the first time the former esport pro has taken a shot at Call of Duty. Earlier this year, we saw xQc keep the "trash talking" traditions of the Call of Duty (COD) enterprise alive by streaming Black Ops Cold War on his stream. The streams were favourably received by the fans of his channel, presumably following the array of expletives frequently used by the Twitch star.
Given this, it was no surprise that xQc would return to the franchise by streaming COD Vanguard. xQc would later take aim at the "busted" time-to-kill (TTK) in COD Vanguard during his latest live stream.
xQc criticizes COD Vanguard's "dogsh*t" TTK
On 20th September, xQc was eliminated after chasing down another enemy player. Despite having already opened several clips on the player, xQc was unable to kill the player. This prompted him to go on an emotionally fueled rant, where he asked: "Why is it that I shoot eight bullets and the guy doesn't die. Like, what is this?"
The former Overwatch pro continued to explain how, in comparison to other Call of Duty games, players in COD Vanguard were "so f***ing tanky," before adding: "It's so busted. The TTK is dogsh*t."
Some of his allied players seemed to agree. One player passed the comment that the "TTK sucks a**," which prompted xQc to explain that it will just cause players to "run with f***ing Drum Mags all the time."
"And it's just going to [have players] left-click the whole time. Just hold down the f***ing trigger man, it's f***ing bullsh**t," the Twitch star added. xQc continued to say that it fosters stupid and inaccurate gameplay.
Although xQc's commentary is completely justified, it should also be noted that COD Vanguard is still in the beta testing phase. Ultimately, these are the kinds of issues that beta testers would tease out ahead of the game's official launch on 5th November.
Hopefully, Activision will take note of these concerns especially given the developer's attempt toward promoting a greater degree of realism with this latest title launch.
