When it comes to variety streamers on Twitch, there are not many more popular than LIRIK. The American streamer, who doesn’t use a facecam on his streams, can usually be found playing a number of different titles stemming from battle royales, to story-based games, and even GTA RP.
Recently, though, he’s been playing DayZ – the once-popular survival title that pits players against each other and roaming hordes of zombies – as they try to find food, supplies, and weapons to keep themselves alive. More often than not, player vs player action is where most of the highlights come from, and it was no different for LIRIK.

During his October 14 stream, the popular broadcaster had managed to knock an enemy out and trapped them in a room before trying to finish them off altogether with a frag grenade.
The streamer tossed it against a wall and quickly closed the door, before standing on the other side and waiting for his kill. “Sayonara, b**ch,” he said, before being blown away himself. “Oh, it goes through the door,” LIRIK added before seemingly slapping himself for the embarrassing moment.
“Are you serious? Oh my fu**ing god. Oh my fu**ing god dude, it goes through the door,” he said, before hitting that respawn button and having to start his progress all over again.
While pulling off the kill would have, no doubt, given viewers a manically brilliant highlight to talk about, the fail itself provided more laughter as they filled the chat with spam.
Maybe thanks to this, though, the streamer would consider his distance before lighting the fuse of an explosive next time. It never hurts to stand far away – you’ll still be able to admire your work with the kill feed.
