DrLupo shows off ridiculous Escape from Tarkov skills in epic 1v3

Twitch star Benjamin ‘DrLupo’ Lupo showed off his incredible Escape from Tarkov abilities by clutching a massive 1v3 by the skin of his teeth.

Lupo, who has stated in the past that he has an “absolute blast” streaming Tarkov, found himself in quite the precarious position during a January 14 broadcast.

With three enemies hot on his trail from two sides, the streamer was in quite a bind and took refuge behind some cover. After listening closely to the footsteps behind him, the streamer turned around and sprayed his target with a wave of bullets.

However, two more were still creeping up on the Rogue star, who had to keep his wits about him. Running to one side of the room and back, Lupo found himself engaged in two separate firefights with oncoming adversaries peeking in through each door.

Finally, after playing his cards right and biding his time, the Twitch streamer got the better of the two as they each came in through entrances on opposite ends of the hallway.

“Get the f**k off me!” he yelled victoriously. “Let’s go!”

After healing up, the streamer discussed his incredible clutch. “I used every godd**n bullet I had. I don’t care if I die in this raid anymore. It doesn’t matter. Holy sh*t, I just smoked all three of these players. My blood is f**king pumping!”

Unfortunately for Lupo, he may have ended up jinxing himself. After he looted and teabagged the three players he had just killed, he got one-tapped by an enemy in the distance, ironically ending his impressive run.

“F**k! I knew it!” he screamed, but still stood by his early comments. “That’s the run, baby. I don’t even care. Got cracked right in the head. The clip was the payoff.”

The Rogue player isn’t the only Twitch streamer to pull off a sick 1v3 clutch recently: Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid also managed to emerge victorious in a one-on-three situation, where he ended up winning with a brilliant no-scope sniper shot.

As Escape from Tarkov continues to dominate in popularity on Twitch, it will be fun to see what other crazy highlights emerge – especially with some of the best in the business battling it out.

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.
