Summit1g’s Sea of Thieves tactic backfires incredibly in hilarious moment

Finally somebody was a step ahead of Jaryd ‘Summit1g‘ Lazar on Sea of Thieves as one of his most trusty hiding tactics backfired in spectacular fashion. 

The popular streamer, who recently reached the 40,000 Twitch subscriber milestone, looked to be up to his old tricks again as he hopped aboard another crew’s Galleon in search of some more valued loot. 

However, having presumed that it was only him on the hunt, Summit was left utterly shocked when he noticed what was happening in the background. 

Microsoft StudiosSummit1g has stolen so many Athena Chests on Sea of Thieves, but this sailor hit him where it hurts.

Initially, he’d thought it was a good idea to lower the anchor of his ship and sneak up on some players they spotted on a nearby island. From there, he decided to swim over to their boat and find a hiding spot. 

Having figured that there was no loot on board this time, Summit and his teammate shot at some skeletons on the beach before laying down next to one of the cannons, waiting for players to return so they could take them out. 

Little did he know, though, that it was him that was about to be tricked. 

“What the fuck? Someone got our boat!” Summit yelled. “Our boat is driving by right now. What the fuck? Hey man, get off our boat.” 

The player rammed their boat right into the island, causing major damage and it started to sink. 

After admitting that they had been “bamboozled” and outplayed, Summit set his sights on revenge. He said: “I don’t appreciate you sinking my boat, motherfucker” before eliminating the crafty pirate underwater after the ship had fallen to the depths.

Stormzy drops ‘Rainfall’ music video in Watch Dogs, and it actually slaps

Stormzy has officially made his Watch Dogs Legion debut with the release of his ‘Rainfall’ music video, which was filmed entirely inside Ubisoft’s upcoming trilogy sequel and if we’re being honest, the whole thing is kind of awesome.

Every day another celebrity seems to find their way into the digital world. This year, Ninja and Aussie Twitch streamer Loserfruit were both added to Fortnite. Then, just last month, Dr Disrespect had a unique variant skin and themed ‘Arena’ map he designed released in Rogue Company.

Now it’s British grime rapper Stormzy’s turn, in Watch Dogs: Legion.

The rapper, 27, released a music video for his new single “Rainfall” on Thursday, Oct. 22, with a bit of a twist ⁠— the entire clip was filmed in Ubisoft’s upcoming sequel.

A digital Stormzy first appeared in a virtual studio, singing his new single. The scenery soon changed, however, and he was transported ⁠— all in-game ⁠— to the rooftops of London, where the new Watch Dogs sequel will mainly be taking place.

Here’s the new music video, featuring Tiana Major9, in all its glory.

This isn’t the only time Stormzy will be appearing in Watch Dogs Legion either. When the full Legion title drops on Oct. 29, players will get the chance to team-up with the grime rapper, or at least a virtual version of him, for an exclusive side-quest.

The mission, “Fall on My Enemies,” is a reference to Stomrzy’s lyrics in ‘Rainfall.’ 

When accepted, players will be tasked with “protecting the broadcast of the music video across the entire city.” Ubisoft has yet to confirm how long the mission will be, or whether it has any major bearing on the main Watch Dogs storyline.

Stormzy first revealed his collaboration back in September. He said, “You lot are about to have your minds blown. What [Ubisoft] have done in terms of recreating London is one of the most insane, epic, incredible things I’ve ever seen.”

Stormzy 'filmed' his entire Rainfall music video inside Watch Dogs: Legion.

The Watch Dogs devs said they were “thrilled” to have Stormzy onboard. “His music and what he speaks to as an artist is extremely relevant for our London setting, and for the larger themes of our game. He lit up the room… it was a career highlight for us to get to work with him.”

Ubisoft has confirmed the exclusive Stormzy Rainfall mission will be available from day one in Watch Dogs Legion, and will require no additional DLC patches to play.

The Watch Dogs trilogy sequel will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on Thursday, October 29. The title will also be ported to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 when the next-gen consoles are released in late 2020.
