Summit1g’s return to Halo on PC fails miserably with comedy of errors

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.

YouTubers & influencers congratulate Halsey on pregnancy announcement

Singer-songwriter Halsey is pregnant – and social media, from influencers and YouTubers to countless fans, has lit up with congratulations for the beloved cultural sensation.

Ashley ‘Halsey’ Nicolette Frangipane is an American singer-songwriter with Grammy nominations, Billboard accolades and, above all else, a feverish social media following. Known for her activism and eclecticism, the musician has become a cultural icon with fans across the world.

That variety of fans is not restrained to just social media stans, either, as the singer has apparently amassed a ton of appreciation from fellow influencers. Some of the biggest names from YouTube and social media have popped up congratulating her, nestled between messages from the 36.9 million followers Halsey boasts throughout Instagram and Twitter. 

Posting a “surprise” Instagram carousel of baby bump pictures, the 26-year-old’s comment section is filled with verified check marks sending their love and joy. From established models (and fellow activists) like Emily Ratajkowski to YouTube superstars like James Charles, the support has been nothing short of overflowing.

In the replies to Halsey’s viral IG post, influencer Gabbie Hanna was joined by TikTok legend Addison Rae by sending an ecstatic “congratulations” message. Singer Olivia Rodrigo, whose “Drivers License” track has gone viral on TikTok, joined in too, but wasn’t satisfied with just one message.

In all caps (the pinnacle of excitement), Rodrigo sent a “YESSSS” before following up with a “SENDING U SO MUCH LOVE.”

Similarly uppercased, Charles chimed in with a reply that seems to concisely echo the sentiments shared by all of Halsey’s fans and friends: “CONGRATULATIONS AHHH.”

Aside from being happy about the idea of a mini version of Halsey entering the world, close fans are likely well-aware of how meaningful the moment is for her. The singer has been candid about her past with infertility and her desire for a child, as a 2015 miscarriage prompted the song “More” on her Manic album.

In the wake of such a harrowing history with the desire to bear a child, the news of Halsey’s pregnancy is certainly cause for celebration. Caps-locked congratulations are most certainly in order and few, influencers and fans alike, have held back in rejoicing with the singer and her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin.

“More,” too, can now be played with added joy. Some of its more expressive lyrics take on a new dimension, as a foreseeing welcome to her baby: “And when you decide it’s your time to arrive, I’ve loved you for all of my life.”
