Summit1g and xQc’s Escape From Tarkov scavenger hunt ends in disaster

Jaryd ‘Summit1g‘ Lazar and Felix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel are two of the biggest Escape From Tarkov streamers in the world, but when the pair teamed up in the tactical first-person shooter, things couldn’t have gone any worse when they tried to take on an enemy.

Escape From Tarkov is widely regarded as one of the most difficult FPS titles in the world, punishing players for the smallest mistakes as they attempt to escape a number of different scenarios with all the loot they have collected throughout their scavenging spree, which can often last for close to an hour.

Playing by yourself can be tough, especially considering that if you die you lose all your gear, so having a teammate can be a handy way to ensure that at least some of your loot makes it back. Unfortunately for Summit though, it was his own teammate who cost him everything he had found, leaving the pair scratching their heads at how badly things had just gone wrong.

While streaming Battlestate Games‘ popular title together late on January 19, the pair headed into a building after hearing noises inside, and while searching for their adversary, Summit decided to check out some rooms. Sneaking in to take a look, Summit immediately started to yell as his screen faded to grey, immediately find himself eliminated at the hands of his own teammate.

“Wow, that’s me!” he shouted, but it was already too late, looking glumly at his screen as the fact he had died sunk in. “Don’t worry about it, it’s all good, loot that fool and see what he had. Just toss my loot into a room so I can get it back. Don’t tell me you died? Was there another guy?”

Apologizing profusely, xQc replied: “There was another guy at the back left. I feel so bad, I don’t know what to say! My headphones made me feel like someone was on my right, I [spun around] and you were on my right!”

With both xQc and Summit meeting their doom, neither streamer could do anything about all their gear, which was lost to the enemy who took down the former Overwatch pro just seconds after he managed to drop his own teammate.

Of course, Summit is well accustomed to errors on Escape From Tarkov, sprinting away from his setup after throwing the worst grenade ever and taking himself out in true ‘1G’ fashion on January 13.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
