Battlefield 1 has been doing impressively well for EA since its release well over a month ago, and finally, the game is getting its due in the one place it deserves – Clueless Gamer!

Conan O’Brien introduced the latest segment for his gaming show, indicating that he was ready to play alongside another PC-building gamer – Brooklyn Nine Nine alum Terry Crews.

The segment began with Crews explaining how he built a PC for his son (Conan replied, “You just blew me out of the water!”), and then Conan looking for flaws within the game. (Terry indicated that the game has very few flaws to track down.)

“The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen!” said Crews. “…and you have a son,” Conan replied. The host also couldn’t help but take a jab at Trump, explaining that the game’s opening stage looked like what the world would look like at the start of a Trump presidency.

Oh, and for some reason dysentery was brought up.

In the middle of the segment, Conan opted to take a “Bunny Break” in the midst of the game, in an effort to cheer both him and Terry up. “Of course, the game is going to tell us how many bunnies died,” Conan explains, right before blasting tanks into oblivion into the game.

And then came a great segment where the players blew apart a zeppelin with help from gunfire via a biplane. They compared it to how quickly a balloon would burst, even though it didn’t explode.

The segment can be found below, and it’s quite hilarious, watching the two of these guys go back and forth as they blast everyone to bits. And it just goes to show that Crews is more than ready to voice a character in Overwatch. “EXPLOSION!”

Battlefield 1 is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
