CS:GO Twitch streamer forgets to disable weapon and bomb cheats

A Twitch streamer was caught red-handed after forgetting to turn off cheats while streaming CS:GO.

While watching Twitch streamer Geezoria playing CS:GO, viewers noticed something wasn’t quite right about his game.

Specifically, weapons on the ground and the bomb appeared to be glowing, with a coloured outline indicating where they were that could be seen through the walls on Cache.

While it may not be quite so severe as some of the hacks and cheats that can be used in CS:GO, such as aim-bots or outright wallhacks that allow you to see enemies through the walls, but nevertheless it does definitely appear to be a use of third-party software to gain an unfair advantage in the game.

This isn’t the only time Geezoria has been connected to cheats, however, as his YouTube channel also features videos of him trying out more powerful hacks in CS:GO, which allowed him to see enemy outlines, health, and other information through walls.

If you’re streaming a multiplayer game on Twitch, the broadcasting platform’s community guidelines state that you have to conform to the game’s rules. As a result, getting caught using a cheat or hack like this in a competitive game can have consequences for your Twitch channel even if you manage to get away with it in the game itself.

So far, Geezoria doesn’t seem to have suffered any punishment on his Twitch account, which at the time of writing remains active. The clips have been deleted from his channel, but not before they were saved by viewers on alternative platforms.

This certainly isn’t the first time that a player has been caught using hacks in CS:GO while streaming. In May, another streamer was banned on Twitch after bringing up a cheat menu in-game, and perhaps the most notorious incident occurred in June 2017 when a streamer was caught using cheats and blamed it on her friend ‘Clara’.

While Geezoria seems to have evaded punishment so far, it remains to be seen whether his Twitch account will survive for much longer.


YNk steps down as FaZe Clan CSGO coach following NiKo’s exit

Janko ‘YNk’ Paunović has stepped down as the head coach of FaZe Clan’s CSGO team following the transfer of Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač to G2 Esports.

YNk cited issues within the team and wanted to step aside as FaZe will be looking to build up their lineup again, which still features highly-talented players even with the exit of their Bosnian star.

“For a while now the team has been struggling with some recurring issues in and out of the game which I’ve done my best to try and amend but unfortunately without much success,” YNk said. “I feel that the best way to move forward is for the team and myself to part ways and, with NiKo going to G2, give the players and the organization the opportunity to get a new coach and IGL who can work on taking the team forward.”

The former MiBR and FaZe coach also indicated that he’s going to break from coaching CSGO for the rest of 2020, and left the next year open-ended.

YNk has stepped down from FaZe after joining in early 2019.

A player and broadcaster before his coaching career, YNk leaves the org in the same month his team beat OG Esports 3-0 in the EU Intel Extreme Masters New York Online grand finals. Last week, they placed 9th at the DreamHack Open Fall 2020.

YNk has been with the team since the beginning of 2019. While they managed to put good results together at various BLAST events and some online tourneys in 2020, FaZe struggled to put up consistent performances against top teams.

YNk is stepping aside in a pivotal moment for FaZe Clan’s roster. Longtime face of the org’s CSGO team, Niko, has moved on from FaZe, and the coach will stand down to let them make something out of the stars still on roster like Marcelo ‘coldzera’ David, Håvard ‘rain’ Nygaard, Markus ‘Kjaerbye’ Kjærbye, and rising talent Helvijs ‘broky’ Saukants.

YNk and NiKo both parted ways with FaZe Clan.

As more CSGO events and competitors continue to either migrate or revolve around EU, YNk could still have prospects in the competitive or broadcasting sides of the scene.

Once a team with superstar players in every role, FaZe is now on the market to fill up their roster to standard capacity, as the latest shakeups leave them without a fifth member and a head coach to take the reigns.
