Going into a rage fit while gaming is a lost art, and Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has proven that he’s quite the artist.
The 100 Thieves CEO was playing the private beta of CoD’s new Blackout battle royale mode when he was knocked down in-game by an enemy player who had been hiding behind him, who then proceeded to quickly eliminate him thereafter.
This sequence of events was too much for Nadeshot to handle, as he succumbed to a wave of anger and violently threw his headset at a wall, causing it to smash.
It’s hard to blame Nadeshot for having that sort of reaction; anyone who has played a battle royale game can confirm that getting “full killed” is one of the most frustrating things that can happen.
Not only does it not allow teammates the chance to revive the downed player, it also means that he has to spectate from the sidelines while the rest of the match goes on.
Eventually, Nadeshot was able to see the humorous side of the situation, as he tweeted about it a short while later.
“You know you’re having fun when losing hurts this much.”
Despite his frustrations, the former Call of Duty pro player has seemingly found a passion for the game again, as he has been outspokenly positive about the Blackout mode in its early goings.
In fact, in the first two days after the mode’s private beta went live on September 10, Nadeshot streamed a total of 30 hours, which is substantially more than he had streamed in a long time.
