Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek is widely regarded as one of the best first-person shooter players in the world, and the “human aimbot” has given fans a glimpse at the keybinds he thinks are best to give himself an advantage over his enemies while raiding and looting in Escape From Tarkov.

The former CS:GO pro player made a name for himself among the streaming community for his incredible aim and astonishing plays in battle royale games like PUBG and Apex Legends, but for months the 25-year-old has been obsessed with tactical shooter Escape From Tarkov.

The FPS sees players drop into massive maps, hoping to loot the area for weapons and items to improve their base, with the goal to get in, grab gear, and get out before another player on the server can take you down and steal everything you had found. Matches can often last for over 40 minutes, and once you’re killed, you’re out for good, so making sure you give yourself the best chance at succeeding is imperative if you plan on doing well.

Battlestate GamesEscape from Tarkov is a tactical shooter that punishes even the smallest of mistakes.

One way players can give themselves a leg-up on their opponents is through the keybinds they use on their keyboard and mouse, creating easier ways to perform tasks in the heat of battle that may give you an advantage over those who still use the sometimes-clunky default settings. For those looking to make changes, shroud gave his viewers a peek at what he uses while playing the game during his January 8 Mixer stream.

Going down the list, the Canadian explained that he uses single press and double-tap on the same keys for different things, as it’s easier than having to press two separate keys simultaneously. “I have switch scopes as Mouse 4, and change scope zoom is Mouse 4, one’s just press and one’s double-click,” he revealed. “I have the same thing for lasers and tacticals. Checking ammo is T, checking the chamber is T as well. Fire mode is B, just one press. Blind fire overhead is X.”

“The default [for checking chamber] is Alt + T or some sh*t, but instead it’s double-tap T for me. And for [blind overhead firing] it’s Alt + W, but you can’t walk around while doing it, while I can.”

Shroud isn’t the only streamer who has become infatuated with Escape From Tarkov, with Dr Disrespect, xQc and Summit1g all hopping on the game as they try to show off their skills and take down their enemies.

While these keybinds won’t make you the world’s best player overnight, they should give you a slight advantage in gunfights, which can be the difference between victory and failure in a game as punishing as Escape From Tarkov.


Charli D’Amelio under fire for complaining about 95 million followers

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio is known for having the most followers out of any other creator on the viral video app — but it seems that reaching less than 100 million in a year isn’t quite cutting it for the social media star.

2020 has certainly been a wildly successful year for miss D’Amelio; she surpassed longtime TikTok queen Loren Gray in March, becoming the platform’s most popular content creator in the process.

However, her winstreak wasn’t over, by far: Charli skyrocketed from 41 million followers to 99 million by November, marking an unprecedented rise to fame for just about any influencer.

Despite being on the precipice of a TikTok record, it seems that Charli was hoping to score the coveted 100 million follower mark within a year of hitting one million. However, it seems that time has passed on, leaving her craving for more time.

She spoke about the situation during a YouTube video with makeup artist James Charles on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly complain about not reaching the coveted goal.

“I wish I had more time!” she exclaimed. “Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

“Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” Charles joked.

“I was just saying like, even numbers,” Charli laughed, sticking out her tongue in the camera.

Dixie D’Amelio attempted to quickly end the video as if on cue, with Charli following suit, marking for a humorous end to a discussion that not many viewers found all too funny.

“It’s so stuck up to act like 95 million isn’t enough,” one commenter wrote of the conversation. “She should be happy, she has her whole life set for her.”

“She deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her,” another chimed in.

“It’s very obviously a joke on James’s part, but still, she’s more famous at 16-17 than most people will ever be in their lifetimes,” another added. “And being a famous teen can inflate your ego something fierce.”

Charles has since spoken out about the situation and clarified that his question was, indeed, just a joke — but in spite of the obvious humor, Charli’s privileged position and follower comments are leaving more than a few critics a bit burnt.
