It didn’t take long for Kyle 'Bugha' Giersdor to run into stream snipers after winning the Fortnite World Cup on July 28.
Bugha’s World Cup championship made him a household name in the Fortnite world and even got him an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
It’s also apparently drawn the attention of Fortnite stream snipers, who have begun to make a hobby out of interrupting the player’s stream.
The Fortnite World Cup was watched by over 2 million people, which makes it one of the biggest esports events, in terms of viewers, of all time.
After winning it all in front of that many people it’s no surprise Bugha has begun to run into stream snipers, something that longtime Fortnite celebrities like Ninja already have plenty of experience with.
The champion has seen a massive spike in his popularity on Twitch following his World Cup win, so it's no surprise the snipers are starting to come out of the woodwork.
During a recent stream bugha entered a game and was immediately flooded with stream snipers so badly it made it seem like he wasn’t even playing Fortnite anymore.
After dropping in with what seemed like half the lobby on top of him, Bugha instantly began mowing down the horde, but more just kept coming.
“Guys, do not kill me please,” the champ begged as he built to get away from the crowd. “What am I playing? This is not good, I’m playing Zombies.”
Besides appearing on Jimmy Fallon, Bugha also has to figure out what to do with the $3 million he won from the World Cup.
In total, the battle royale star has to deduct $1,446,600 from his total earnings, leaving him with a touch over $1,500,000 to do with as he pleases.
No doubt $1.5 million is still a good chunk of change, but whether it’s enough to make up for the legions of stream snipers all over Bugha is another question.
