Bonkers Call of Duty video sees YouTuber playing online with a PIANO using genius hack
A MUSICIAN has struck a chord with Call of Duty fans after posting videos of him playing the game by using a PIANO as a controller.
Reddit user grooviehoovie hooked up his PC to an electric keyboard, mapping the keys to the moves of his in-game character.

Clips shared to the popular website on Tuesday show the tech whizz racking up kills on battle royale shooter Warzone using the bizarre setup, Eurogamer reports.
Grooviehoovie says he trained with the clunky system for a month before he was able to play the game properly.
"It was a terrible idea, but I did learn a lot and improve a decent amount from it lmao," the pianist said.
Unsurprisingly, some of his adversaries look surprised at his jolty movements, which make it look as though the gamer is cheating.
Writing in the comments under one post, grooviehoovie admitted that it looks as though he's using a piece of software known as an aimbot.
Aimbots aim for the player to make them better at the game using artificial intelligence.
"It looks like aimbot because I'm using button presses to aim, and my program doesn't have an option for smoother mouse movement," he said.
"If u look at my right hand, I'm using D to look left, F to look right, G to look up and B to look down, along with C# and F# added to look left and right more quickly."
Having now mastered the technique (sort of), grooviehoovie has a few tips for anyone wanting to try an unusual aiming system.
"The best tip I can give is to make a routine, stick to it, and push through the training regardless of whether it is enjoyable or not," he said.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War – what is it?
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is the latest game in the hugely popular war sim series.
It hit shelves in November and plays out at the height of nuclear tensions between the US and Soviet Russia.
The storyline follows the real-world events of the Cold War – such as the Vietnam War – but will dramatise some elements.
An early teaser trailer revealed has that the game will include a hunt for Perseus – a spy working against the US for Russia.
The Cold War was a period of major tension between the USA and Soviet Union, but wasn't an outright war in the conventional sense.
Instead, both nations supported "proxy wars" – regional conflicts used to gain global influence.
And the fact that both nations controlled nuclear weaponry meant that neither side was willing to risk a war proper.
The period is generally said to have run from 1947 through to 1991 – when the Soviet Union was dissolved.
Cold War dropped November 19, 2020, and starts at £59.99 for a standard copy rising all the way to £89.99 for the Ultimate Edition.
"It is very monotonous and annoying to aim train, but if you want the full benefits of it, it is best to do short focused sessions and really commit to them, rather than non-routine unfocused sessions.
"Sleep also plays a huge role in improvement (with anything for that matter, you don't really improve throughout the day at anything)."
It's not the first time a musician has hooked up their instrument to the first-person shooter.
In January, musical virtuoso DeanoBean linked his PC to a recorder and mapped the moves of his in-game character to notes on his tooter.
The kooky Canadian was able to play Warzone simply by blowing a tune.
And in a display of sheer skill and determination, he even managed to register a kill while live streaming his efforts to his 4,000 Twitch followers.
