Offline TV member Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan expertly trolled Minecraft TNT prank that left her stunned and angry.

The Minecraft hype train is rolling along on Twitch as more and more streamers pick up the game daily due to becoming burnt out on other titles.

Many of the streamers share a server together where they can perform their tasks together while building up a world together. However, the nature of these servers also opens unsuspecting players up to pranks, as we saw happen to Valkyrae.


Deep in the caverns of the world, Valkyrae was digging through a chest and discovering all sorts of loot, not realizing TNT was right beside her waiting to be triggered by a pressure plate.


Fed came down and ignited the TNT, on purpose, causing Valkyrae to panic and throw her pickaxe before succumbing to the massive explosion.

However, it wasn’t as it seemed as she spawned in again with her items in her inventory like nothing happened.

“Why do I have my loot,” she asked, to which Fed replied saying it was just a prank, which must explain how she was able to keep all of her stuff. Her anger quickly died down upon that realization.

What wasn’t a prank though is her Diamond pickaxe was left behind in the caves so she’d have to go down there to get it back. This is a good example of why you shouldn’t panic throw items in high-stress situations.


Minecraft has been experiencing a renaissance in 2019 on Twitch as it seems like every major Fortnite streamer is checking out the game for at least a stream.

Even Tfue, the biggest name on Fortnite, has been dipping into Minecraft, just magnifying the incredible pull the nearly decade-old game has.
