Sykkuno left an entire Valorant lobby speechless after he popped off hard and single-handedly won a team fight, but it’s not the first time he’s impressed others with his mad skills, and it won’t be the last.
Sykkuno isn’t known for his competitive gaming skills. Most people see him as an entertaining variety streamer. However, he does dabble in competitive games like Valorant from time to time. And when he does, he almost always adds something to his highlight reel and reminds everyone that he’s no slouch.
In a recent stream, he popped off hard on Valorant and left an entire lobby stunned. However, it also seemed like he impressed himself. It started with a mistake, but he quickly turned it around into something magical.
At the beginning of the clip, Sykkuno is fumbling around and trying to settle on a strategy. “Alright, I’m going to rush down mid,” he said. “I know how to charge at them like a maniac and hope it works, and usually, I die.”
Once the fight broke out, he managed to get an early pick off. But then he got a bit too keen and made a crucial error. He pushed the wrong button and teleported onto the other side without any cover. “Oh! I pushed the wrong button,” he said.
However, just when it looked like his prediction was about to come true, he got into the zone and popped off hard.

He blindsided two unsuspecting enemies and took them out. “Wait! No, I pushed the right button! I pushed the right button!” Then, he took out a third from long-range and won the round.
It’s not the first time he’s impressed others with his mad skills. Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left speechless after being destroyed by him on the OfflineTV Rust server. “Sykkuno, you killed me. You’re amazing!” he said. “You destroyed me! You’re the better gamer, man.”

Charles ‘Moistcr1tikal’ White also talked about how good Sykkuno is at Valorant.
“He’s got a killer instinct on him,” he said. “He’s got some sharpshooting. I think when the stream’s off, [he goes] around clapping children on these games for some fun. He can get real gross at this game. He was pulling off some nasty clips.”
Sykkuno comes across as humble and reserved, so he’ll probably play down the compliments and deny that he has a killer instinct. It’s one of the things his fans love about him.
However, when push comes to shove, it’s clear he’s got a knack for shooters. Hopefully, it’s something he’ll tap into more on his streams as time goes on.
