Twitch star Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar completely lost his cool after being eliminated in Escape from Tarkov and called on the devs to fix a frustrating issue. 

Many Twitch streamers have fallen in love with Escape from Tarkov in recent months, and summit is no exception as he’s been playing the game almost every day since the start of 2020.

Of course, the game doesn’t come without its issues, as other content creators like Michael 'shroud' Grzesiek and Dr Disrespect have voiced their concerns. Even the leader of the 1G Squad is now less than pleased with the game as he tore into an annoying problem.

Escape from Tarkov has stormed into mainstream gaming in the past few months.


The American streamer was eliminated during a run on Feb 10, after a tense standoff saw him stuck in a room with a grenade. He was desperately trying to pry the door open as fast as possible, but it took way too long.

“Listen… let me explain to you how Tarkov and door opening works. Your guy, when he closes the door he doesn’t grab the knob and close it” summit began, before diving into a full-on rant on the subject.

“[He] slowly just gives it a little nudge, and then, when you’re done and it closes, he just throws his arms up, does the motherf**king Macarena or something, and [finally] he’s like, I can open the door now.”


It didn’t end there though, as Lazar continued to tear into his character’s poor skills with doors. “I’m sitting there staring at [the door] as it's closing in my face slowly and I’m just like, please! Please! Can you just open it? Just open the door!”

Summit then broke into a rage as he screamed at his computer. “[My character’s] a military expert Nikita, tell him to take his f**cking hand off of his rifle and open the f**cking door!”


He then took a deep breath and apologized to his viewers for the outburst, before quickly getting back into the game.

For those who have played the game, you may have noticed doors tend to be a bit sluggish and unresponsive, so it’s easy to understand summit’s frustrations.

He even went as far as to call out Nikita Buyanov, the COO of BattleState Games, during his rant, so perhaps this may get his attention and we will soon see an update to the game’s doors.
