Twitch streaming star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has demonstrated his fiery personality once again as he showed a genius way of dealing with Fall Guys stream snipers.

Fall Guys has exploded into popularity, with a host of the world’s biggest content creators and streamers flooding to the game. Developed by Mediatonic, the game is known for its pure simplicity in trying to beat other players over obstacle courses to the finish line.

Everyone’s been playing Fall Guys – but not everyone’s been winning.

One of the few player mechanics in Fall Guys is the ability to grab and hold opponents, in the hope of halting their progress or lining them up for failure.

This mechanic is exactly what xQc used to outwit a stream sniper, who had previously endeavoured to impede his chances of victory.

After being grabbed by the opponent as he made a break for the lead, xQc reached the conclusion his opponent was stream sniping, and so spent the rest of the round ensuring his enemy could not pass him.

He held him in place for some time, allowing a number of other players to pass. Then, in one final moment of karma, the sniper was knocked off the map and plunged into defeat.

This, unsurprisingly, cheered xQc up considerably, shouting: “F**king deserved it! Deserved, f**k you! Absolutely butchered!”

His chat, for their part in the moment, were also delighted to see the suspected stream sniper receive their comeuppance.

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.
