Twitch streamer and Warzone player Bobby “OpTic BobbyPoff” has come under fire lately after belittling his opponents during a Warzone match that saw his opponents chasing their in-game champions contract, also known as the Nuke Contract.
For those who don’t know, the Nuke Contract allows players to detonate a nuclear bomb that will wipe out the entire lobby at once. To earn a Nuke Contract, a team or player must win five consecutive Warzone matches.
In the viral clip, OpTic BobbyPoff and his teammates were on course for victory. However, they ran into a group of creators that included Warzone player Ethan “Stellar”. Bobby was seen making a scathing speech against her, leading to subsequent criticism.
