Call of Duty is a modern gaming phenomenon and is one of the top esports to watch live on Twitch.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the latest title in the long-running, top-selling series and it made more than $600 million in just a few days after its release last year.
But who are some of the best Call of Duty streamers to watch on Twitch? We have picked out five to get you started.
One of the most famous Twitch users is DrDisrespect, who is without a doubt among the best Call of Duty streamers to watch on Twitch.
With 4.4 million Twitch followers, DrDisrespect can usually be found playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare though he has been trying out the Valorant closed beta in the last couple of months too, though he deleted the game from his PC after losing a bet to a fellow streamer.
PUBG and Overwatch are among the other top esports he often plays on his Twitch streams. DrDisrespect – whose real name is Herschel “Guy” Beahm – is not a professional gamer, with his streams more aimed at being entertaining than educational for his many viewers.
Nevertheless, he describes himself as “the most ruthless competitor in video game history” on his Twitch profile. Thought to be worth millions of dollars, DrDisrespect is known in the esports community for his criticism of other top streamers.
Some four million Twitch followers cannot be wrong – DrLupo is among the top Call of Duty streamers on the platform. While he has been trying out games such as Crucible, Fortnite and Minecraft Dungeons of late, DrLupo is still best known for playing Call of Duty online.
While many know him for being friends with Ninja, DrLupo – real name Benjamin Lupo – is an excellent streamer in his own right too.
Like many top streamers on Twitch, DrLupo has engaged his followers in fundraising activities with huge sums handed over to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as a result of his efforts.
While Ninja became one of the highest profile gamers to join Mixer, DrLupo has confirmed he will be staying put on Twitch rather than switching platforms.
No list of the best Call of Duty streamers to watch on Twitch could be complete without summit1g, who has 5.3 million followers on the platform.
A former top Counter-Strike Global Offensive player for A51 and Team Mythic, summit1g is now focused on streaming and his schedule is very regular.
While summit1g – real name Jaryd Lazar – has become known for streaming the Valorant closed beta this year, it is still when he goes live on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare that he tends to be particularly popular on Twitch.
For a time in 2018, summit1g was the most followed user on Twitch, so his streams are certainly well worth checking out regardless of which game he is opting to play.
Anyone hoping to pick up some tips on how to win at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has to consider tuning into FormaL’s streams.
Part of the OpTic Gaming team that triumphed at the Call of Duty Championship 2017, FormaL has almost half a million followers on Twitch.
The streamer, whose real name is Matthew Piper, also sometimes plays Counter-Strike Global Offensive and Halo on his Twitch site, but it is usually CoD that he has loaded up.
FormaL’s ability in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is absolutely incredible, but his streams are known for his dry sense of humour too.
Our last recommendation is Nadeshot, a former Call of Duty professional gamer whose Twitch site has almost 1.5 million followers.
The 2014 Esports Player of the Year is the co-owner of esports team 100 Thieves, which competes in various games including Fortnite, League of Legends and Counter-Strike Global Offensive.
While Nadeshot’s 100 Thieves commitments mean he does not stream as often as some of the other top Call of Duty streamers to watch on Twitch, he is unmissable when he does find time to go live on the platform.
