Popular Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek proves that he is still a PUBG master by securing a victory with no gunplay involved.

Even with the release of Apex Legends, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds remains one of the most popular games in the battle royale genre, with top streamers still giving it a ton of playtime.

Shroud is no exception to this and showed viewers that he’s still harboring some serious PUBG skills in a video of his May 20 stream, by teaming up with Jake ‘chocoTaco’ Throop to obliterate the final duo with melee attacks.

Shroud/TwitchThe final two duos battled it out melee-style for the winning position.

The two teams agreed to discard their body armor and weapons in favor of PUBG’s famous pan, which was placed on a rock in the middle of the arena.

Both duos then stood an equal distance away from the pan before rushing in to grab it, with ChocoTaco reigning victorious.

With no choice but to use his fists, shroud managed to down one member of the opposing duo with several punches before finally knocking them out with a strike to the head. 

ChocoTaco then killed the surviving member with the pan, securing the match win.

The clip is just as hilarious as it sounds, with both teams jumping around like headless chickens trying to whack each other in the head.

Shroud confronts Apex Legends hacker

Apex Legends is another one of shroud’s go-to games and he recently confronted a hacker to find out the reason behind their cheating.

While playing a match on May 19, shroud found himself being unfairly crushed by an opponent and upon complaining to his audience, discovered that the cheater was watching his stream.

This prompted the former CS:GO pro to ask the hacker a series of questions, telling him to carve his answer into the rock face with bullets.

“The sad part isn’t that he’s cheating, the sad part is that he’s actually not bad at the game, and he’s cheating,” shroud said. “His movement’s pretty fucking good – if he just played normally he could do pretty well.”

Apex Legends streamer Dizzy returns from hiatus to play Valorant

Coby ‘Dizzy’ Meadows practically took over Apex Legends esports before moving to streaming, and then leaving social media entirely in July. Now he’s back, and ready to take on a whole new challenge: Valorant.

Dizzy was known for his stellar Apex Legends play, with thousands of viewers heading to his stream or whatever pro event he was playing in to watch him put on a show. He swept through basically everyone he came across in matches, leaving no doubt he was one of the best players around

Then, in July 2020 he disappeared from the internet entirely, after stepping back from Apex esports in 2019 to focus on streaming the game. Now, after roughly six months, Dizzy has announced his return and the latest game he’ll attempt to master.

EXP Pro-Am Apex Legends ExhibitionDizzy was one of the most well-known Apex pros since release, even winning the very first Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge.

In a Twitlonger announcing his return on January 18, dizzy said he was ready to get back to streaming and would be playing mostly Valorant this time around instead of Apex. Meadows also revealed that the passing of well-known WoW streamer and good friend Byron ‘reckful’ Bernstein in July, 2020, was one of the big reasons he took his break.

“I felt like I wasn’t performing and felt like I just let everyone down with my constant breaks and inconsistent play. I felt I had just burnt myself out,” the streamer said in a Twitlonger. “Around the time of Byron’s passing I was thinking about him the night before and waking up the next morning to the news, I was heartbroken. I fell into a depressed state and just needed some time to myself. I needed a hiatus for my mental health.”

“I’ve been slowly recovering and I feel like I’m ready to come back to streaming and plan on playing mainly Valorant,” dizzy continued. “I’ve also decided I’m going to start streaming on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. I look forward to being back. I missed you guys.”

If you want to catch dizzy in person, head over to his Twitch channel at 4 PM EST on Monday, January 18, where he’ll be streaming for the first time in over half a year, and welcome him back.

The loss of Reckful was definitely a hard time, not just for the WoW community but for Twitch as whole, and just add on the kind of year that 2020 seemed to be for everyone else, and we can understand why dizzy took some time off. It’s good to have him back though, and we can’t wait to see him pick up where he left off.
