Stream sniper who tries to kill shroud fails miserably on Blackout

A stream sniper who tried to kill Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek during a game of Blackout found out the hard way that you have to be extremely clever to outplay the former CS:GO pro player.

Shroud had momentarily left his setup, leaving his character hidden in the bathroom of a house in the hopes that nobody would check it and kill him.


Unfortunately, it became clear as soon as Grzesiek left that someone who was in his game was also watching his stream, as an enemy player could be heard opening a door in the house and settling in to wait on the popular streamer to come back and begin searching the house.

Unfortunately for the stream sniper, shroud actually heard the noise from another room, and rushed back to his set up. “I swear I just heard someone open a door,” commented the Canadian, “I swear.”


Shroud wasted little time hunting down his opponent, checking the main living area of the house, before rounding on the bedroom where the stream sniper lay in wait. Grzesiek quickly checked the room, spotted the enemy and placed down a barricade, blocking him into the room.

The former Cloud9 member then quickly rushed out of the house, running around the side to jump through the bedroom window and eliminate his opponent. Unfortunately, he didn’t get the satisfaction, as his barricade had already killed the sniper.

Shroud was pleased with his kill, laughing and telling his stream: “I heard a door open, I ran back to my computer when I heard a door open. I’m just glad that guy was clueless.”


This clip is just the latest in a long line of amazing Blackout plays Grzesiek has made since the release of Blackout in October. Recently, shroud killed six enemies to win the game without even aiming down the sights of his weapon, and also managed to solo win a Code Red tournament match with a massive 20 kills.

Team Summertime’s Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards is hosting another huge Call of Duty tournament and this time, Warzone is in focus as the best players will be coming together in an entirely new format.

From Black Ops 4 to Ghosts and even Modern Warfare 2, Hitch has been hosting an assortment of throwback CoD events throughout the offseason. However, his sights are now set on Warzone as the next competition is on the horizon.


Call of Duty’s best pro players will be joining the top Warzone challengers and some of the biggest streamers in the ‘Cracked Creators’ event. 16 “cracked” players will be thrown into the mix alongside 16 content creators with $10,000 on the line.

The format is something completely new so expect every competitor to be tested like never before. From where you can watch to every player lined up, here’s what you need to know about the Cracked Creators Warzone tournament.


How to watch the Cracked Creators Warzone Tournament

While no specific start time has been made public just yet, we know when the next big Warzone event will be kicking off. Expect to see your favorite personalities competing on Wednesday, October 21.

Given the unique format with this event, there’s a good chance it runs for quite a while. So expect a good few hours of action once it gets going. We’ve embedded the BoomTV stream below so you can catch the event as it goes live.


Cracked Creators Warzone Tournament format

Rather than having players form their own teams for this event, things will be a little different. 16 “cracked” players will each be picked by 16 content creators to form every duo for the tournament.

This means that almost every duo could be playing together for the very first time as streamers choose their partners from the list of professionals. Once all duos are together, they’ll be paired up to square off in typical Quads action.

The exact point system is yet to be revealed, though the event will likely follow a familiar structure; eliminations will rack up points as will overall wins. The duo with more points at the end of each round will move on in the tournament bracket.
