Twitch streamer pestily was left in hysterics after he called out an Escape from Tarkov stream sniper, only to fall to his death a few seconds later.

When streaming on Twitch, broadcasters really only have to worry about putting on an entertaining show and keep their audience engaged. Sometimes, though, viewers can get involved by stream sniping – which is especially common in streams where multiplayer games are being played.

Sometimes these stream snipers actually play a helping hand, giving a streamer a leg up by handing over loot or weapons, but more often than not, they try to steal the show and ruin things. Other times, though, they can add to the entertainment value by performing a unique skill – be it singing, telling jokes, or playing a hilarious character.

Battlestate Games - Escape from TarkovPestily has made his name on Twitch by grinding through Escape from Tarkov.

During his December 31 stream, Escape from Tarkov streamer pestily ran into one such stream sniper who happened to be shooting their gun in the air and playing the iconic ‘dun dun dun’ segment from the Terminator theme.

As soon as the streamer recognized that, he asked the stream sniper he could hear him. “He’s doing the f*cking Terminator theme. Just fire three bullets if you’re listening – go bang, bang, bang.”

However, as quick as he made the request, the streamer found himself falling victim to another bullet – leaving his character flat on his back, with his raid failed, and needing to respawn elsewhere.

Seeing the funny side of things, the streamer was initially speechless but allowed himself a small chickle in the fallout of things, especially as it made for a great highlight.

It’s not the only brilliant highlight that pestily has had during his mega Escape from Tarkov streaming session though. A day earlier on December 30, he celebrated hitting 30,000 viewers in one of the strangest ways possible.

As he continues to grow, maybe he’ll run into even more entertaining stream snipers that will, hopefully, let him live next time around.


Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
