Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov, the current defending world champion for Team Envy, had a genius level IQ play in scrims against Luminosity Gaming.
While trying to throw a stun grenade into the Hardpoint, where he had just been killed, the sliding doors on Arsenal had a mind of their own.
While having quick, motion-activated doors in such a hectic game mode may pose some issues down the line, Apathy wasn’t complaining as the doors saved him from almost certain death this time.
The flash ricocheted off the doors going directly behind Apathy where it landed with a hit marker.
He turned around to find Josiah ‘Slacked’ Berry, who was right behind Apathy and only seconds away from securing the kill on the unaware World Champ.
If nothing changes on the map, expect to see many more grenades bounce off those doors because they represent the entrance to a Hardpoint, and they go from wide open to closed in the time it takes a grenade to fly towards them.
Luckily for Apathy, this moment actually helped him secure a kill, but in the future, those doors could pose a headache for pros and casual players alike.
