Call of Duty: Warzone has been facing glaring audio issues for a while and Dr Disrespect has weighed in on the matter by making comparisons to how much better it is in Battlestate’s Escape from Tarkov.
Many different streamers have chimed in to share their thoughts on Escape From Tarkov. The multiplayer shooter has faced varying degrees of popularity over the past year with boosts from players like xQc and Shroud.
YouTube streamer Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV, more commonly known as Dr Disrespect, played Escape From Tarkov several times in front of his fans. While it’s not the game he spends the most time on, he still has strong opinions on it.
One feature in EFT impressed him so much that he stated that Call of Duty: Warzone should take a few notes from Battlestate’s shooter title.
Dr Disrespect on Warzone audio issues
Dr Disrespect has been playing Warzone for such long a while that the game has become a major part of the Champions Club streams. Despite this, he doesn’t consider it to be perfect, and he voiced his discontent with the game’s audio problems in a recent stream.
Ever since its integration with Black Ops Cold War, we’ve seen a plethora of new content come to Warzone through a few updates. Despite this, the Battle Royale title is still plagued by glaring audio issues.
The streamer was playing Warzone in front of his fans on January 11, and then complained that the game’s audio is so bad that it made it hard for him to tell where his enemies were. They sounded like they were much further away than they actually were.
He said: “A game like Escape from Tarkov, a game that has perfect audio, blows this game’s audio out by 500% – trust me.
“Trust me, any real gamer would say the same thing. It blows this audio out by like a thousand, but the reason why is because it caters to (competitive players). You hear something at a distance, a shot, footstep, you hear it!”
Discussion starts at 1:12:48 in the video below.
This is an issue that has also been causing trouble for players in other Battle Royale titles like Fortnite and Apex Legends. Dr Disrespect has also called out those games for the same reason and it’s understandable why he feels this way.
He hasn’t given as much dedication to Escape From Tarkov as he does Warzone but still enjoys the title quite a bit. The game definitely has certain qualities that he thinks Activision should take note of, such as the clear audio.
The streamer has also offered other advice to improve on Warzone in the past, such as changes in the Gulags. He’s enough of a pro that it’s worth listening to his advice, and hopefully the developers will release a fix for this issue soon.

How to fix Warzone & Modern Warfare Diver Error 6 Code
Here’s how to fix Warzone and Modern Warfare’s Diver or Error 6 Code which has caused downloads to fail, locking players out of the game.
Call of Duty Warzone and Modern Warfare players have been unable to play thanks to the Diver or Error Code 6, but we’ve got some solutions to help you get back into Season 4 Verdansk.
The Warzone community appears to be reaching a boiling point in Season 4, with glitches and hackers ruining the experience for many. Some players haven’t even been able to launch the game with the Diver or Error 6 Code making an unfortunate return.
There are some solutions to the error, so we’ve detailed them below to help you get back to playing Verdansk, Rebirth Island, or Modern Warfare multiplayer.
How to fix Code Diver 6 Error in Warzone & Modern Warfare
If you’re hit by the Diver or Code 6 Error in Modern Warfare or Warzone Season 4, you’ll be met with a screen telling you “Download Failed.” This is the root of the problem but fortunately, allows us to provide several fixes that should work.
Check the Warzone servers
This error code can often be caused by an issue with Warzone’s servers. Check out our Warzone server-status guide, and if there’s a problem, it’s worth waiting for the issue to be resolved by Raven Software.

If there isn’t a server issue, check out the following solutions.
Restart your router
The first thing you should try is restarting your router, as this could trigger your console or PC to begin the failed download.
- First, completely close Warzone or Modern Warfare
- Unplug your router / modem, wait thirty seconds, and plug it back in
- Wait around five minutes for it to completely reboot
- Launch Warzone or Modern Warfare
Download the update through a hotspot / cellular data
If resetting your internet didn’t work, you can try downloading the update through cellular data. Players have reported that this works for some reason, so it’s worth a try. However, you could rack up high data charges so we only recommend trying this if you’re desperate.
Reinstall Warzone and Modern Warfare
Unfortunately, the last solution we recommend is completely reinstalling Warzone / Modern Warfare. This will give a fresh install of Warzone and should be completely free of the Diver or Code 6 Error.
Warzone and Modern Warfare has a huge file size, so redownloading the game will likely take some time. But hopefully, you’ll be able to play battle royale and multiplayer with no issues afterward.

Warzone cheaters shamelessly flex highly requested Cold War Zombies camos
Warzone’s hacking troubles continue as cheaters have been able to unlock locked Cold War Zombies camos to use in Warzone Season 4.
Verdansk is currently being overrun by hackers sporting unreleased Black Ops Cold War Zombies Dark Aether camos in Warzone Season 4.
It was said by the devs that eventually Cold War’s Zombies camos would come to Call of Duty: Warzone at some point. It’s been quite a long time since the game’s release and none of its skins have turned up in Verdansk yet.
Thanks to the growing power of hackers in Warzone though, they have now arrived in unceremonious fashion. One Twitch user, and even JGOD, have provided evidence of the new Zombies camos running riot in Warzone.
The Twitch streamer goes by the name of Repullze, and they were mid-game with several buddies when they spectated the unusual happenings.
An enemy hacker was running around the map blindly firing with their gun to let the cheat do its usual thing.
But the oddity that was picked up on quite quickly was the skin that the weapon was sporting a DM Ultra Zombie camo that you simply cannot find in Warzone Season 4.
The clip, and stream, caught the attention of popular Call of Duty personality JGOD. He Tweeted out a picture of Repullze’s stream showing further evidence of the hacks.
The camo was different from the Twitch clip as it was now encrusted with diamonds, as was now clearly coated in the “Plague Diamond” Zombies camo.
Warzone continues to be a game played by thousands of players every single day, but there’s no doubt that the morale of the community is at an all-time low.
Between hacks, cheating, and glitches, Warzone Season 4 is proven to be a decidedly mixed experience.
