Summit1g roasts “rat” Escape from Tarkov players who use Thermal Scopes

Twitch star Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar lost it at Escape from Tarkov players that use Thermal Scopes, dubbing them as “rats” in a harsh roast on stream. 

Summit has been playing Tarkov almost non-stop since the start of 2020 and has never been afraid to call out other players or problems with the game.


It seems that another pet peeve has popped up as the American took the time to call out players who use Thermal Scopes and even went as far as calling them “rats” in a rather lengthy rant.

Battlestate Games
Escape from Tarkov is an ultra-realistic first-person shooter, focusing on survival and looting.

During a broadcast on March 9, Summit1g was eliminated seemingly out of nowhere after a solid start to his run and immediately went on to slam the player who killed him.


“F**king thermal bitches dude, nothing but a bunch of b**ches and rats. Not moving, both your teammates got killed and you don’t move a muscle, you let both of them get looted… that’s the type of player who uses thermals – too scared to save their boy’s loot.”

He clearly wasn’t impressed with the player who decided to lay in wait and ambush him when he least expected it, rather than taking a head-on fight.


It’s easy to understand Summit’s frustration, as Thermal Scopes are incredibly powerful in Tarkov and give players using them a huge vision advantage. If you get attacked by someone using a Thermal and you don’t have one, most of the time you’ll die before you can even figure out where they are.

However, the player did use his weapon to his advantage, so it’s hard to blame him, even if it is a frustrating way to go.

In the end, the death didn’t seem to affect the streamer much anyway and he jumped right back into the game not long after – this time not running into any more Thermal Scope users and actually having some successful runs.


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
