SBMM is one of the most controversial issues in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at the moment but in the latest video over at Reddit, you can see that the game actually has much bigger problems than that.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players have been voicing their discontent with the game's skill-based matchmaking (SBMM) ever since the game released two months ago. Many prefer other types of matchmaking such as ping-based matchmaking and feel that SBMM is punishing for players who just want to enjoy the game and improve their skills.

Other Modern Warfare issues are a bit overshadowed by SBMM but luckily, the latest video over at the game's subreddit shows an equally important feature that needs to be improved as soon as possible. Redditor instinxx uploaded a video where the popular streamer Shroud executes a perfect headshot with his Desert Eagle in an almost impossible situation.

However, Shroud's precision and skills are not the point of the video. The scene after the awesome kills shows the duel from the victim's perspective. Another popular streamer, Tim The Tatman was on the receiving end and as you can see the video, something is awfully off here.

In Shroud's stream, Tim The Tatman is just showing up from the lane while in Tim's stream, he's almost all the way behind Shroud's back. Once he gets killed by Shroud, his reaction says it all really. In the image below, on the left side, you can see the exact moment when he's killed by Shroud while on the right side you're looking at Tim's perspective just milliseconds before he dies.

It's looking pretty crazy and to be honest, it happens in the game all the time. Just don't trust anything you see on your screen as it will probably give you false information on how exactly you got killed. Especially in these super close-quarters combat duels.
