Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar resorted to extreme measures in order to save Kyle ‘minikerr’ Kerr during a recent ESEA match on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The 30 year old is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch and built a large portion of his fan base while playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The former semi-professional player eventually moved on to newer games like the popular battle royale titles of PUBG and Fortnite, or even games like Sea of Thieves, but he always seems to come back to his CS:GO roots after a while.
After a short break from the stresses and strains of being an online Twitch personality, summit returned to streaming on April 26th and has been playing a great deal of CS:GO with other former pros and semi-pros.
During one ESEA match, along with the likles of minikerr and Mythic’s Erik ‘fl0m’ Flom, summit realised that minikerr was about to be shot from behind but wasn’t in Discord to hear the callout.
ESEA’s service does not allow dead players to communicate with their alive teammates during rounds so summit couldn’t make the callout in-game either. However, minikerr lives in the same house as summit so there was one more option available, as can be seen in the following clip:
Not only does summit’s scream from elsewhere in the house help minikerr to avoid dying, it gives him the chance to clutch up the rest of the round and secure the ace.
