xQc and Sykkuno were duking it out for first place, when a blue shell was headed to take out xQc. He quickly drove right off the map, interrupting the shell’s explosion and allowing him to hop right back on the trail.
Sykkuno was shocked that it worked and shouted, “He just drove off?!”
Later in the race, xQc utilized a short cut by driving directly off the lap which actually landed him much further than the rest of the drivers.
Again, Sykkuno couldn’t believe xQc’s insane ticks: “He just drove off! Wait, is that a skip?! I’ve never seen that.”
xQc finished the race by deflecting one final blue shell by using the Super Horn item, which blocks incoming projectiles.
As xQc won the race, Sykkuno said: “Guys, he’s literally on a different planet. How does he know these tricks?! I’ve never seen that before.”
The streamer explained how he pulled out the victory, “There were three blue shells and none of them hit me. Zero. You go forward, you drive off in a very forward way so you gain distance and dodge the entire shell.”
Turns out that xQc was even impressed by his own ability to dodge all the blue shells, complimenting himself with an emphatic “yeah, it’s pretty crazy.”
Whether it’s skill or sheer luck, we know we won’t be challenging the Canadian streamer to Mario Kart anytime soon.
