A Twitch streamer has publically stated that he does not use cheats while playing Escape from Tarkov, but viewers remain convinced he does after he revealed some precise knowledge about the cheats in question.

The streamer, who goes by the name Kablamo, was first accused of cheating on Wednesday, June 5, when a six-minute video of his Escape from Tarkov gameplay was posted on the /r/LivestreamFail subreddit.

In the clips, collected by /u/haha-lol-xd, the streamer’s crosshairs can be seen speeding across the screen in less than one frame, as it locks on to the position of an enemy player who is behind a wall.

An Escape from Tarkov was accused of cheating on June 5.

Throughout the video, Kablamo snaps onto enemy players, hitting headshot after headshot with his rifle as he takes down opponents.

The streamer speaks the whole way through his killing spree, insinuating that he can hear players before he destroys them – including one instance where he claims to have heard footsteps from an enemy who appears to be away from their keyboard when he eventually finds them.

Many who saw the clip on Reddit called Kablamo out, prompting him to respond on his stream by claiming he wasn’t cheating, before revealing some oddly specific information about the cheats people use in Escape from Tarkov.

“Of course I’m not cheating,” the streamer told his viewers. “Tarkov has an anti-cheat, don’t get me wrong, it’s a good anti-cheat. People use Chod’s heats and AimJunkies, they get banned real fucking fast. I’m pretty sure the new cheat that people are using is MaverickCheats, and it’s $5 for a month.”

Kablamo’s knowledge of Escape from Tarkov cheats immediately raised even more suspicion, with some going as far as to find his Steam account, which has a number of VAC bans – although he has now made his profile private.

Of course, just because he has knowledge of cheats doesn’t specifically mean he was cheating, as some have pointed out that cheats are a hot topic among Escape from Tarkov fans, so it’s possible he was aware of the cheats without using them.

TikTok in shock as Quenlin Blackwell reveals she’s living with Diplo

Popular TikToker and former vine star Quenlin Blackwell has bemused fans after revealing that she’s currently living with world-famous DJ Diplo.

Quenlin Blackwell first rose to fame on Vine, earning more than half a billion loops and half a million followers, and has now amassed more than 4 million followers on TikTok.

Diplo, 41, is an American DJ known for tracks like “Be Right There” and “Revolution,” and has released music with artists including Dua Lipa and Justin Bieber. He is also a founding member of electronic supergroup Major Lazer.

The DJ’s global fame is partly a reason why TikTok was so bemused when 19-year-old Quenlin revealed to her followers that she lives with him. In one video, responding to fans who asked her about noise complaints, she very casually said “I live with Diplo right now and he fully supports my endeavors.”

TikTokers immediately asked questions about how the pair ended up living together and expressed their surprise. Quen responded to a comment that said “What! Tell us how this happened. We need the story,” and filmed herself asking Diplo why she lives with him, to which he responded, “Because I have no other friends.”

This offered fans little in the way of explanation and even rapper Lil Yachty responded with cry-laughing emojis.

One user wrote: “This is the oddest duo but like I’m not mad.” Another wrote: “I’m sorry I’m having a hard time processing this,” while someone else added “Who is writing the 2020 script?? I just wanna know.”

Since the bizarre reveal, Quenlin has begun a TikTok series documenting her living situation with one of the world’s biggest musicians. So far Quenlin has filmed Diplo struggling to tie his shoelaces, bopping to music in the car, and behind the scenes at a live-stream concert for Major Lazer’s new album launch.

Meanwhile, Diplo has featured Quenlin on his own TikTok including a video of him checking to see if she has swollen glands in her neck and a sneaky video of a photoshoot with the caption “The time when @quenblackwell called the paparazzi on herself in my backyard smh.”

No one was ready for such a bizarre collaboration, but TikTok is here for it and excited to see the next few installments of Quenlin’s “Living with Diplo” series.
