Call of Duty player uses musical instruments as a controller

A Call of Duty player has discovered how to use musical instruments as a controller and has even killed enemy players with an assortment of different instruments.

Call of Duty is a game traditionally played with a mouse and keyboard or controller, but not for player DeanoBeano. Deano instead opts to play his Call of Duty games with musical instruments, such as drums, a recorder, and even bongos.

He posts these hilarious highlights to his Reddit and Twitter pages, going viral each time he posts his impressive clips.

You can see one of his most popular clips below, where he manages to snipe a player in Modern Warfare, while using the drums.

DeanoBeano is clearly a one of a kind player, so we managed to get in contact with him and sit him down for a Q&A, where he details how he’s able to play the game with instruments, how he started, and more.

Q: How do you manage to get instruments to work as remotes?

Deano: I use instruments that I plug in to convert midi signals to keyboard commands, and acoustic instruments I control using pitch to midi, then midi to keyboard commands. The bongos were actually a controller from the GameCube games Donkey Konga and Donkey Kong Bongo Bash. (referring to the above clip)

CI: Can you explain Midi to our readers?

Deano: Midi is a signal that electric instruments send to computers and other instruments and devices that control sound to connect with each other.

Q: What originally gave you the idea to play Call of Duty with instruments?

Deano: I started drumming to gaming montages live on twitch about a year ago, so there was always an ongoing joke that I actually hit the clips with my drums.

Eventually, in August I figured out how to hook up my drums as a controller and after I started doing that, I figured it would be fun to try other instruments and odd controllers too.

Q: What are your future plans? Any new instruments you want to try?

Deano: My plan is to keep making Cold War multiplayer as fun as I can. Playing with a normal controller (especially solo) can be really tiring because of SBMM. I’m always looking at finding new ways to play the game, and I plan on bringing this to other games too. I’ll be using some new instruments and controllers soon.

Q: What’s your favorite instrument to play in games?

Deano: The recorder is my favorite instrument to play with at the moment. It makes the game pretty challenging but every kill and clip I get with it feels so rewarding.

Q: Do you actually play any musical instruments?

Deano: I do! I started with piano when I was a kid and later on picked up drums and got a Bachelor’s degree in music on drums. I play a little bit of trumpet (and recorder I guess haha) but not much.

That’s the end of our interview with Deano. To see more of his content, you can follow him on Twitter and watch his Twitch streams, where he appears to be most active. He also occasionally posts highlights of his streams to his YouTube channel.

How to use Modern Warfare XP Tokens in Black Ops Cold War

Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War have separate XP Tokens so there have been some doubts over whether or not these could transfer over, but they absolutely can, and here’s how you can use your MW XP Tokens in BOCW.

If you purchased and leveled up the Battle Pass in previous seasons of Modern Warfare and Warzone, it’s likely you have a ton of Double XP Tokens saved up. When integration between the games occurred in December, you couldn’t use the MW Tokens in Warzone. This has since been fixed, but players are now asking for Tokens to be changed because they count down even when you’re in the lobby.

Both MW and BOCW Tokens can be used in Warzone, but they can’t be shared across the two main Call of Duty titles. At least, they shouldn’t.

By following this trick, you can use all your saved up Modern Warfare XP Tokens in Black Ops Cold War.

How to use MW XP Tokens in BOCW

Here’s how to use MW Double XP and Double Weapon XP Tokens in BOCW.

You can use these Tokens to quickly level up your weapons and become Prestige Master.

Double XP location in the Warzone menu
  1. Launch Warzone
  2. Select an XP Token
  3. Back out to the game-select menu
  4. Select Black Ops Cold War multiplayer
  5. Enjoy your Double XP!

This will apply the Token to your Call of Duty account, and it will remain active no matter what game you play.

It’s unlikely this is working as intended, so you should try and do this quickly before it’s addressed in an official patch.

However, there’s a Double XP weekend from December 31 through to January 4, so it’s best to wait until this event has concluded before using this trick.
