Twitch star Jaryd 'Summit1g' Lazar might not be a full-time Counter-Strike: Global Offensive streamer anymore, but that might change after he finally squashed his Molotov demons.

Summit, who has over 3.8 million followers on Twitch, can usually be found dabbling in GTA RP, World of Warcraft, and even PUBG, but when he isn’t, fans are begging him to go back to his roots and play CS:GO.

Sometimes, he gives in to their wishes and showcases why he tried to go pro, yet whenever he does, the streamer can’t avoid the jokes about his infamous molly incident at DreamHack Austin 2016 where he embarrassingly died to his own flames, costing his team the game.

Compared to his past streams, it's rare that Summit treats his Twitch viewers to a CS:GO stream.

It's been a curse of sorts since, repeating his self-inflicted molotov deaths in other games, but Summit has finally managed to harness the power of the molly for his own gain.

During his August 9 stream, the Twitch star had been playing FACEIT Pro League matches alongside fellow streamers and current professionals when he was left in a one-on-one clutch situation. 

Summit traded shots with his counter-terrorist counterpart before tossing a Molotov all the way down Inferno’s mid-map and scoring a kill with a hilarious direct hit. “Oh, I hit him with it!” the streamer called out, before bursting into laughter. 

“That’s a new 1G moment,” added summit, as the game’s next round started and his team took up their positions. “I’ve mastered it dude.”

His teammates backed him up on those claims too. “Yo, that’s the new 1G dude!” called out Team Liquid’s Jake ‘Stewie2k’ Yip while Mohamad ‘m0E’ Assad added: “Wait, you’ve actually moved the 1G to him now.”

Of course, one kill isn’t going to stop his chat spamming their favorite 1G emotes and joking about the infamous incident anytime Summit goes near a fire in any other title.

Yet, at least he’s gone some way in trying to prove that his interactions with the flames are more than a long-standing joke.
