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.”

With 330 monthly active users and 145 million users daily, Twitter is one of the most popular social media apps out there. Whether you’re a casual user, business or even the US President, nobody can resist the allure of sharing snapshots of our thoughts within 260 characters.

There are many ways to show your personality through your Twitter account. Whether it be through a funny bio, pinned Tweet, interesting profile/cover photo or unique Twitter name, there are plenty of ways that you can make your Twitter account feel more like you.

However, one limitation that a lot of Twitter users note is the lack of fonts available. A lot of users find themselves stuck with Helvetica Neue, or even Arial if they’re really lucky.

The easiest way to get custom fonts on Twitter is through third party websites.

While there is no quick fix within the app to use special fonts on Twitter, it is possible to use special fonts through the use of third-party websites or apps.

What websites are best for using special fonts on Twitter?

As with any third-party website, you should always be careful that the website you’re visiting is safe and isn’t full of malware and other potential risks to your device. Be wary of websites with a lot of pop-ups and redirects.

No third-party website is completely risk-free, but here are some of the most popular ones used by Twitter users to get access to special fonts:

  • LingoJam
  • FontsforTwitter
  • Fontvilla

How to use special fonts on Twitter

While individual third-party font websites vary slightly from one another, they all essentially work the same.

However, for this tutorial, we will specifically focus on LingoJam.

A lot of these third party websites, like LingoJam, can be used on smartphones as well as desktops.
  1. Type the text you want to snazz up into LingoJam’s Fancy Text Generator, specifically in the box on the left-hand side that says ‘normal text goes here’.
  2. On the right hand side of the screen, you should see a box that displays your Tweet in a variety of different fonts. Scroll through this box to find the font you like the best.
  3. Highlight your Tweet in it’s chosen font, and then either click Ctrl/Command + C or simply right-click the text and select ‘copy’.
  4. Open Twitter and log into your account.
  5. Paste the text wherever you want to put it: this can be in your Bio – which you can access by clicking on the ‘Profile’ icon on the left-hand side, clicking the ‘Edit Profile’ button, and then pasting the text into the box that says ‘Bio’ before pressing the ‘Save’ button – or as a Tweet, wherein you can simply paste the text into the ‘What’s happening?’ box on Twitter before pressing the ‘Tweet’ button.

So, there you have it. Now you can give your Tweets that extra edge and be the envy of all your friends!
