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.

Heartbroken gamers react to PS5 destroyed with industrial shredder

A viral clip showing a PlayStation 5 getting minced by an industrial shredder is garnering a ton of reactions among the gaming community who were horrified to watch the prized console getting absolutely destroyed.

It’s been nearly a month since the PS5 was released and it hasn’t gotten any easier to find the console available from brick-and-mortar stores to online marketplaces. The reality is millions of gamers won’t be able to touch Sony’s next-gen console until well after the holiday season is over.

That could explain why some in the community are a bit touchy seeing the hardware being put through a meat grinder, so to speak.

YouTube channel ‘Captain Crunch Experiments’ specializes in putting objects through the high-powered shredder, and it was the PS5’s turn to show us what it’s made of.

The outcome was as you’d expect. The plastic panels of the PS5 were easily devoured into bits, though the full body of the machine took a bit more convincing to get it through to the other end.

As Sony’s metallic behemoth put on one of the most heartbreaking ASMRs to date, the viewers were mixed. Some were impressed that the console put up such a fight, but nearly all PlayStation fans were reeling by the time the video closed.

“What exactly happens here?” one person wrote, before listing out the sins from the production. “Here’s what: Destroying currently out of stock PS5, throwing away rare non-renewable materials, wasting all the electricity that went into producing those PS5s => unnecessary pollution, and producing shit quality unsatisfying videos.”

“This is satisfying but pains me at the same time lol,” another wrote on the YouTube post.

“You need actual help lots of kids want the PS5 For Christmas and you buy one and just shred it like why though a child is now missing out on his PS5 for Christmas that’s because you bought it and shredded it,” someone else said of the clip.

We saw a similar outcry when The Mob’s Classify pranked Froste by slamming a brand new PS5 console to the ground and finishing the job with a sledgehammer.

Gamers will all feel that disturbing knot in the pit of their stomachs watching the video, and the sentiment around the PS5’s destruction won’t ease up until there’s vastly more stock for eager customers.
