Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has explained why he thinks fellow streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar would be better off ditching Halo's The Master Chief Collection for Escape from Tarkov. 

Avid fans of summit1g will have seen his recent frustrations with Halo: Reach, following the release of The Master Chief Collection on PC on December 3. 

The 32-year-old Twitch streamer has been struggling to come to terms with the PC re-skin of Bungie’s futuristic FPS. These struggles culminated in a dramatic deletion of the game from his PC, as he ranted once again about its suitability - or lack thereof - as a mouse and keyboard game.

On December 22, shroud had some words of advice for summit, following on from his unsuccessful grapples with Halo: Reach. 

The Mixer star was playing Escape from Tarkov alongside Klean, a well known Twitch streamer with nearly 150,000 followers.

Battlestate Games’ tactical FPS originally released in the summer of 2016 and has performed well on streaming platforms as giants like shroud promote it to their audiences. It’s a game the pair think summit could excel at. 

“He should come play Tarkov with us,” Klean said. “He uninstalled Halo! He’s been all about Halo and mad about controller players. Like dude, come play Tarkov. He was all about it… and then he just stopped.”

“I’m shocked he’s not [playing Tarkov],” shroud responded. “I’ll be honest… I think he’d have a lot of fun and I think his stream would have a lot of fun too.”

Klean speculated that summit “burnt himself out” on Escape from Tarkov, a game the 32-year-old has flirted with in the past. 

“I think he’s kind of like me sometimes,” shroud concluded. “Where, you just don’t wanna play it, and when you do you it’ll be worth it. But for whatever reason you just don’t wanna open it up. Something like that.”

Summit has played Tarkov in the past, but has stepped away from it recently in favor of Sea of Thieves and Halo, the latter of which he has quit playing. 

Fans would love to see summit team up with shroud on Escape from Tarkov; two of the world’s biggest gamers combining forces on any game would excite avid viewers.
