Twitch star Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar is becoming somewhat of an Escape from Tarkov expert and has explained why sprinting in the game is a bad idea. 

Summit1g has been playing Escape from Tarkov almost exclusively on stream and has mastered the game thanks to his commitment to it.

He’s often heard giving out tips to his viewers and returned with another one during his Feb 28 broadcast, where he warned Twitch chat against sprinting in the game – something that almost every player does constantly.

Escape from Tarkov has quickly become one of the most popular games on Twitch.

The American stopped to chat in between Tarkov runs and noticed one viewer complaining about Tarkov’s characters, claiming they have “lead boots” which makes them incredibly loud. Summit agreed with the statement, and explained why sprinting specifically is affected by this.

“What I came to learn is that sprinting is loud as f**k. If you’re going to do it you should do it because you need to or to be aggressive on somebody. Randomly sprinting around is never good because someone will hear that and find out where you’re going, putting you in a lot of trouble.”

This no doubt surprised many viewers as sprinting it’s a basic idea for many players to sprint around to get to places faster, especially if there’s no one nearby. With the final minutes of the game requiring players to head to an extraction point, running there sounds like the most logical way to do it to make sure you get there in time, but as Summit points out you may just be alerting enemies to your position, and costing yourself loot in the long run.

However, Summit’s tip does make sense. Tarkov is largely a game of patience and positioning and sprinting does reveal your position very easily.

It’s always hard to tell when someone is lying in wait, so at the very least not sprinting will give you a chance to get where you’re going without drawing too much attention to yourself.

Of course, if you need to get away from a fight or want to close in on your opponent then sprint away – at that point, they most likely know where you are anyway.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
