YouTube streamer and mustache expert Dr. Disrespect has revealed that he’s missing Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer after the end of the beta, despite it having a major flaw.
The Modern Warfare 2 beta ended in late September, and despite generally positive player feedback, there were clear areas for Infinity Ward to improve ahead of the full game’s release on October 28.
The Doc himself has put a lot of time into the beta, bringing his signature brand of violence, speed and momentum to the 2022 shooter.
While looking for something to play during an October 7 livestream, he revealed more of his feelings for the upcoming CoD episode and admitted that he misses the game’s multiplayer despite an obvious flaw.

“You know what I kind of feel like playing?” he said to his viewers. “Is Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. Like now would be a good time to just play multiplayer, improve some weapons, improve my man, learn a bit of the cards. Really? Yes. Look, I had no problems – Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer was actually pretty good.”
However, he went on to pinpoint his biggest flaw with the beta, one shared by large sections of the community. “Until SBMM started fucking kicking. Then I’m just fighting – every fight is a [struggle]. I don’t want to be on the edge of my seat all the time.”
Modern Warfare 2’s skill-based matchmaking certainly drew criticism from the player base, with many eager for it to be toned down prior to the full game’s launch.
The Doc discussed his issues with SBMM when the beta was live, describing it as his main concern with the Infinity Ward title.
Another prominent figure who was unimpressed by the level of SBMM was Courage, who described it as “terrible”.
It’s certainly a compliment that the Doc was itching to play MW2 before its release, but it’s clear that more needs to be done by Infinity Ward and Activision to allay his concerns about the controversial matchmaking mechanic.
