Jaryd 'summit1g' Lazar decided to finally make his return to Halo: The Master Chief Collection, but it's fair to say that many things didn't turn out as planned during the broadcast. 

The popular Twitch star has been mixing up the games he plays on the platform during the course of 2019, giving the likes of GTA RP, Sea of Thieves, and many other titles some air time, although on December 3 he gave them something a little different.

Microsoft's Master Chief Collection is one of the franchise's most popular games and the streamer, in some instances, looked like he was taking to it like a duck to water. In others, he had a bit of a nightmare.

Summit certainly looked like he was enjoying streaming Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

One of the funniest fails in his broadcast came when he tried to throw a grenade over a wall by bouncing it off another. It was difficult to tell what he was going for when he first threw the grenade, though.

The trick could have paid dividends if it was executed correctly, but just like his molotov fail in CS:GO all those years ago it left him a little embarrassed. "I was like, it's going to go over the wall. We're fine," he said after exploding his own character.

If you thought that was good then brace yourself for the next clip. Summit appeared to completely forget that there was fall damage on the game and, as you can imagine, things didn't turn out too well.

The former CS:GO player lined up what was always going to be an ambitious stunt to pull off, throwing himself off a structure and intending to land on a small piece of metal. He did land where he wanted, but obviously fell to his death in the process! He couldn't believe it.

"Hey, there's fall damage," he said as the 'you committed suicide' note appeared on screen. "There's fall damage. I figured that out now, thank you."

Aside from that comedy of errors, it's worth noting that Summit1g was particularly successful when he had a sniper in-hand, ripping off shots to take out a number of enemy players in quick succession on a number of occasions – leaving his fans in the chat stunned in the process.

Either way, there's no doubt that next time he plays Halo that he won't make some of the same mistakes. In the case of eliminating himself with a grenade or something like a Molotov, though, you just can't write that one off in any game with summit.
