NSFW: Can Trashtalking Rattle A Real Soldier?

Morons yammering away in your headset can be off-putting to the average gamer toiling through a round of Call of Duty online, but how does it affect the combat capacity of an actual, trained soldier in the field?

Machinima specialist Rooster Teeth's new series Immersion seeks to find out, having US Special Forces veteran "Shane" fire 20 rounds down a firing range with an M4 carbine. His first 10 shots are in sweet, blissful silence.

His second 10 shots are with the comedy crew from Mega 64 giving him shit through his headpiece. Will he buckle under questionable statements about his junk? Under offensively homophobic slurs? What about racial shit inside his brain right now?

    Hahaha "Do not try this at home or serious injury may occur" ie. Don't trashtalk a guy with a genuine, loaded M4 in his hands.

    That picture of him flipping off the guys is awesome.

    Trashtalking can distract players, and when they are, that is your opportunity to take them out.
    Which is why things like censorship in mature rated games, such as BFBC2 is ridiculous.

    Think of it as psychological warfare

    YAY Rooster Teeth!
