Popular Overwatch, Apex Legends, or even ‘rigged’ levels of Crash Bandicoot.

xQc regularly finds ways to entertain fans with these rages and he took it up a notch during a session of Fortnite Battle Royale.

Robert Paul for Blizzard EntertainmentxQc has become one of the most popular Twitch channels around since retiring from professional Overwatch.

xQc tries his hand at Battle Royale games

The former Dallas Fuel pro has taken to Fortnite Arena Mode in recent days, streaming it on a regular basis – even if it does cause him to flip out. It happened again on April 18 as the streamer was ripped apart by an enemy player who was quicker on the draw than he was.

After being killed inside of Dusty Divot, xQc freaked out in his typically hilarious fashion. He took off his headphones, rolled his chair back, and jumped up before slamming his feet down onto his desk.

“Ah, Dude!” he screamed after realizing what he had just done. “How does that not hit? It was perfect. It was perfect!” It took a few moments for xQc to gather himself as the streamer just looked directly down his camera with a blank stare on his face, bamboozled by what had just occurred.

xQc’s not-so ‘perfect’ shot

However, on review, it’s quite clear to see that xQc’s ‘perfect’ shot wasn’t even close as he thought – as his Shotgun’s crosshair didn’t even line-up with the enemy player.

Fortunately, considering the time he has put into Epic Games’ popular title in recent days, xQc might learn from this mistake and use it to improve his game moving forward. 

Doing so might just save him a little time, and possibly money, instead of finding creative new ways to slam his desk in anger.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
