IRL streamer’s first trip to the gun range leaves her terrified

IRL streamer KiaraaKitty left viewers in tears of laughter as she went to a shooting range during her visit to Korea but struggled to pull the trigger due to the sound.

Through streaming her global IRL (in-real-life) adventures on both Twitch and YouTube, KiaraaKitty has amassed a worldwide fanbase that follows her everywhere she goes. That even stretches to American police officers who ‘stream sniped’ her during a broadcast.

However, on January 14, she was a guest on Jinnytty’s Twitch stream, as the pair hopped to a gun range in South Korea but struggled to actually fulfill their adventure due to the noise – and seemingly some nerves as well.

Instead of picking up something with a bit more kick, the pair opted for some simple pistols, but after being run through some instructions KiaraaKitty was a bit hesitant to carry on after her first pull of the trigger.

The popular streamer held off for a minute before jumping in terror at the shots that were being taken by other customers. “I’m so sorry, I don’t know why… ow, so loud,” she muttered before grimacing following further shots. 

However, with a bit of a silence in the air, KiaraaKitty finally started pulling the trigger on her pistol – even though she kept closing her eyes as she shot and seemingly bracing from some recoil. “I don’t know how to feel about this,” she said as her magazine was emptied and she could breathe a sigh of relief. 

With her round over and done with, the streamer received her target and took a look at how she’d done. “I don’t know, the gun sound just scared me. Is it normal?” KiaraaKitty asked the chat as she left the range.

As she met back up with Jinnytty, the pair discussed just how “scary” the sound was, and noted that they’d both seen an increase in heart rate. 

Even though they stuck around the range to take a few photos with different weapons, the pair didn’t opt for any further live shots of the guns.

Whether or not either of them decides to head back to a gun range on a further range remains to be seen, but it’s not like they’ll find anything much quieter.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
