Jaryd ‘Summit1g‘ Lazar was blown away watching fellow Twitch streamer Saqib ‘LIRIK‘ Zahid’s insane 3-on-1 play in Escape from Tarkov.

On January 13, LIRIK was playing the Battlestate Games hit when he was ambushed by three enemies, shortly after sniping a foe off in the distance.

A firefight began with the three exchanging gunfire. LIRIK wisely went for cover behind a tree before ducking into the grass and going prone as the squad approached him. One enemy came charging in guns-a-blazing, but was swiftly dropped by the streaming team, leaving two remaining.

The second foe was close by to the left, and took one shot at Zahid before being forced to run for cover himself – but was fragged by the Twitch star, who’d spotted his prone body.

“What the f**k?” the shocked LIRIK shouted. “Oh my God, he ran out of f**king ammo.”

After healing up, their final enemy came creeping up behind the bushes, but the streamer was ready for him with the two getting hit. LIRIK, needing a big play, promptly switched to his sniper rifle and no-scoped the final adversary to clutch out the 3v1 in style.

The whole encounter was so impressive, even fellow streamer Summit1g had to see it for himself.

“Dude, PogChamp,” Summit1g said as he watched LIRIK get his second kill on the group. Nothing could prepare the streamer for what was about to come next, though.

“Does anything else happen?” he wondered as he continued watching. After seeing LIRIK land the no-scope to end the battle, he was absolutely speechless.

Escape from Tarkov has been dominating Twitch viewership.

“What?!” he screamed in disbelief. “Dude, the ending of that video. Holy sh*t, dude. That is unreal.”

For his part, LIRIK has improved and come a long way since he first started playing Tarkov earlier in January – but he may simply be a prodigy. After all, he did score his first kill mere seconds into his first game with his first shot.

With Escape from Tarkov dominating Twitch viewership, it will be fun to see how the game develops, especially with big-name streamers frequently playing it.


Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
