Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players call for White Phosphorus killstreak to be removed or buffed

Modern Warfare’s White Phosphorus is a deadly killstreak, so much so that it is even making players call for its removal due to the frustration it causes.

Some Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players have been calling for the developers to remove or buff the White Phosphorus killstreak.

Call of Duty fans are still very much enjoying Modern Warfare in 2021, with the player base even being gifted with new updates and maps every so often.

As the player base is still strong, of course, fans are continuing to give feedback to the development team, with the recent calls for changes to the Ground War mode. However, now it seems players have an issue with the White Phosphorus killstreak.

Modern Warfare White Phosphorus

Reddit user joshua-esaw put up a post with the idea to: “Remove white phosphorus or improve the visibility for your teammates.”

White Phosphorous is a killstreak in Modern Warfare that places a huge area of white smoke across the map that damages the enemy team.

The killstreak is really powerful. However, it can be disorientating for the teammates and the user, especially as you can take damage from it.

The full post is pretty explicit, with the player clearly being frustrated about the issue. The player even states that it is the “worst killstreak” in the game, purely because its negatives outweigh the positives, seeing no reason to use it “except to just annoy people.”

Players in the comments also agree, with one stating that “the coughing is the most annoying part.”

Another user shared their negative experience with the killstreak as well, saying:

“I had a Ground War once where every few minutes someone would call it in. It’s more an inconvenience than anything else when it was enemy, and it just pissed me off when it was friendly. It felt more like a detriment than anything else when I couldn’t see more than a few meters in front of me. For nearly the whole bloody game…”

The killstreak has been in the game since launch, so we doubt it’ll be going anywhere soon. Unfortunately, players who love this game are just going to have to deal with it and hope no one else uses the killstreak.

Dr Disrespect Apex Legends

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale games in the world, but high-profile streamer Dr Disrespect recently explained why he is not a fan of the first-person shooter.

The past couple of years has seen Apex Legends rise to become one of the most popular video games globally. The battle royale game has become a staple in the gaming community thanks to its action-packed gameplay and mechanics.

However, as with every multiplayer game, some players do not enjoy what Apex Legends offers. One player who still has not been bitten by the Apex Legends bug is Dr Disrespect, who recently explained while streaming why he hates the game.

After being eliminated in a match, Dr Disrespect began to explain his frustrations with Apex Legends and what he does not enjoy about the game. A great deal of his criticism focuses on the large number of bullets it takes to down enemies and how the shield healing aspect of Apex legends.

“I hate this game! It’s boring! Shooting shields, I don’t like it. A full spray and the f**king clip is never enough to knock a guy. Right?”

Dr Disrespect then went on to explain why the high time to kill in Apex Legends is why he believes the battle royale has not risen to be a more popular esports game.

That’s why no one wants to watch this game competitively. Nobody wants to! You can’t create that one shot,” Dr Disrespect continued.

“That’s why it didn’t do good in esports. No one wants to watch it! At the end, everyone is camping out with bubble shields on, camping doors like this: opening and closing, opening and closing. Just to shoot someone’s purple or gold shield twice and then have the gas kill everyone…I Just don’t know, man.”

There is no doubt that Apex Legends has a much higher time to kill than other battle royale games like Warzone, which has been seen as a positive and a negative in the video game community.

However, while Dr Disrespect’s latest remarks focused on why he doesn’t enjoy Apex Legends. he has not been shy about his frustrations with Call of Duty: Warzone and other games in the past.

With Dr Disrespect having explained his optimism for Battlefield 2042 in the past, it looks as though that will be the next game the popular streamer will be trying out with Apex Legends and Warzone not quenching his gaming thirst at this time.
