Popular Twitch streamer Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek might be one of the best players in the world at any game he touches, but that doesn't make him immune from dying in painful ways.
Ever since Black Ops 4 released on October 12, Shroud has been playing nothing Blackout on his stream, having made the switch after being known as a PUBG streamer for most of the last year.
Throughout his time playing Blackout, he’s put on some impressive displays of skill that make it seem as though he’s simply a bot putting on a great impression of a human.
That all changed when he fell victim to one of the most embarrassing and painful deaths that a player in Blackout can experience, however.
Rather than getting taken down by an opponent who managed to outsmart him, Shroud was betrayed by his own ATV while trying to engage with an enemy team.
While driving on his ATV, Shroud catches a pair of players out of the corner of his eye and quickly hops off to park his ATV on a hill and take aim at the unsuspecting players.
Shroud lands a few shots but then starts taking damage and before he even has time to react, he witnesses his character get run over and killed by the vehicle.
“Oh my God, are you kidding me? I was like, 'what the fuck is hitting me?!'” said Shroud of the unfortunate incident. “That’s how I die? I was so confused. I was like ‘why am I glitching around?’”
The worst part of all is that his death came while he and his teammate, recently retired Cloud9 CS:GO player Tyler ‘Skadoodle’ Latham, were battling it out in the top 10 of the match and Skadoodle wasn’t able to survive long enough to overcome Shroud’s untimely demise.
So the next time Shroud does something amazing on stream, just remember this moment and that he, too, is human and has died to vehicle physics at least once in his life.
