As the two most popular PUBG streamers on Twitch, both Dr DisRespect and shroud suffer more than their fair share of ‘stream snipers’, but recently met a stream sniper with a difference.

If unfamiliar, stream snipers are essentially in-game trolls, who will watch the channel of a popular player in order to target, harass or just generally annoy them.

Dr DisRespect and shroud both regularly attract viewers in the tens of thousands, so there are always people looking to find them in game and get their moment of attention.

With PUBG’s ‘proximity chat’ settings, any player within range of another on the map can hear their microphone, so PUBG stream snipers typically use this to yell expletives etc. while they know they’re on broadcast.

But recently, shroud has been running into a different, more creative breed of stream snipers, who rather than trying their best to be obnoxious, perform songs for him instead.

After this first example at the end of a match, it seems a trend has begun.

Next, shroud and Dr DisRespect were playing together, when another stream sniper wanted to show off his singing skills in the 1v1 vs shroud, instead of actually winning the match.

The Doc explains: “Ladies and gentlemen, this is the difference between shroud’s stream snipers, and the Doctor’s stream snipers.”

The lyric to the song, ‘Wadu hek’, originates from another popular Twitch streamer, Wadu, who was known as a stream sniper himself.

Twitch itself frowns upon stream snipers, and has even been known to hand out bans to users doing it to other partnered streamers on the platform, in an effort to curb the trolling.

But, as shroud shows, maybe not every stream sniper has bad intentions.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch: Pokimane
Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
