Popular Battalion 1944 players as he bids to ‘keep the game alive’ following its full release on May 23.

The former CS:GO professional has been dabbling in Bulkhead Interactive’s title since it dropped on Steam – adding the newly updated shooter to his rotating cast of games.

However, the game isn’t completely new to shroud – as he played the early access version of the game back in 2018. The full release has taken his fancy, with the game replacing his usual battle royale titles on stream. However, the Candian harbors concerns about the game ‘dying’ if players don’t support it in the long-term.

Shroud TwitchShroud has become one of the most popular streamers on Twitch thanks to his superb skills.

“That game is so fun,” said shroud, after finishing up an eight-hour long session during his May 27 stream. “I really hope it doesn’t die again. I really hope it actually goes somewhere bro.” After complimenting the game even further, the streamer had an almost teary plea – hoping to keep it alive.

He added: “Please, Please don’t die,” before snapping back into his usual, serious self. Despite the fake tears, some fans pointed out that shroud might be able to ‘save’ the game by himself – believing that as long as he’s playing and streaming, there will be interest.

However, shroud quickly dismissed that belief, stating: “That’s not true – I don’t know why you’d believe that. That’s just not true, it’s really not.”

Despite that, the streamer has been able to transition his god-like shooting skills into Battalion 1944, wrecking enemies with that same aimbot-like ability. He made the game look oh so simple when he picked up a double kill during his May 29 stream – including an incredible jumping headshot.

The game has proven to be a popular title on Twitch since becoming available on Steam and shroud isn’t the only big streamer to try their hand at it. Dr Disrespect, who also gave the game a go in its previous state, partied up with shroud for a few games.

He was able to translate that trademark violence, speed, and momentum into another FPS title – taking down two players with a sneaky backstab play.

Bulkhead Interactive has supported their full release with regular updates, including the recent 22676 patch – which addressed weapon balancing, the addition of challenges, and a new ‘rifle-only’ mode.  

Yet, despite cultivating a stable player base and impressing some of Twitch’s top names, it remains to be seen if the game kicks on and creates a strong footing for itself. However, if it doesn’t, shroud might break out the actual waterworks and properly tear up.

FPS legend Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek is a dominant force in Battalion 1944, and he further proved it by hitting a sequence of shots that very few players can dream of pulling off.

Over the past couple of weeks, Battalion 1944 has become the talk of the town in the online gaming community, with many top streamers binge-playing the game since its release.

Shroud, in particular, has developed quite a fondness for the new first-person-shooter, and, much to the surprise of no one, is already considered to be one of the best players in the game. 

His latest exploit came during a match in which his team was trailing seven rounds to 10, with both teams racing to be the first to win 13 rounds to clinch the match victory.

It was during this 18th round in which he put his full arsenal of skills on display, piling up four eliminations and nearly pulling off what would have been a very tasty clutch.

Bulkhead InteractiveBattalion 1944 has become a sensation on Twitch, with many top streamers enjoying the new FPS game.

The round started with shroud running both the STG rifle and a shotgun, giving him the ability to confidently take on enemies both at close and far range. 

His sequence of kills began with a shotgun pump to the head of an enemy crouch-walking through the smoke, after which he hit some impressively accurate shots to beam an opponent that was sitting on A-bomb.

However, the gem of the clip came after that, when the former CS:GO pro was stuck in a 1v3 situation. Knowing he had to play aggressively because the enemy team had planted the bomb, he pushed out and used elite movement and incredible accuracy to delete one player while rapidly recovering to shotgun another out of the air. 

Unfortunately, he was unable to kill the final player, who was guarding the bomb, although shroud immediately remarked that the final opponent “teleported in front of him.”

What shroud thinks of Battalion 1944

Considering his legendary status among numerous FPS games, it’s not surprising that shroud has fallen in love with Battalion 1944, claiming that it’s the “best FPS out right now.”

He’s called the game a combination of Call of Duty and CS:GO, in that it fuses the fundamental mechanics of CoD with the popular economy and round system of competitive CS:GO matches.

Seeing as how he’s currently one of the best players in the world, and that there isn’t really any other game out there that he’s fond of as much, fans can expect the star streamer to continue playing Battalion 1944 for the foreseeable future.
