Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left absolutely speechless while playing Escape from Tarkov with Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar, after the streamer’s disastrous curse with grenades rubbed off on him.
January 22 was certainly a day of crossovers for some of the top streamers around, as not just these two but the likes of Dr Disrespect, xQc and others to play with each other, although it was a devastating mishap from shroud that stole the limelight.
The former CSGO pro player was running around, trying to track down opponents, and could be seen in the background of summit’s stream on Twitch. Moments later, though, a huge explosion went off and things didn’t look great.
There was a moment of confusion before summit appeared to have grasped what had happened to his teammate, as he’s been in the same position time and time again.
For those who don’t know, he was once eliminated from a CS:GO tournament for burning himself alive with a Molotov Cocktail – later voted as the worst play of the decade.
Although, this time, it was an issue that the Escape from Tarkov development team might want to take a look at, rather than human error, which cost the leader of the 1G squad dearly in the past.
“Ooo! Did you just nade yourself?” summit asked, prompting a quick response from shroud, who said: “I saw it go in.”
Summit1g quickly realized what had happened to his fellow streamer and started to explain. He added: “Oh I saw that glitch the other day. You see [the grenade] physically go in but it doesn’t actually.”
The grenade appeared to enter the room shroud wanted to throw it in, at least on his screen, although it turns out that it just exploded near his location instead – taking him down in the process.
Shroud claimed to have never seen the bug before, but after this, hopefully he doesn’t get himself in a situation to let it happen again in the future. It did give viewers a laugh or two in the process at his expense, though, and he saw the funny side himself too.
Whether or not these two streamers will work together for another Escape from Tarkov stream in the future remains to be seen, but it’s something fans will no doubt be crossing their fingers for.
