Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek got the ultimate revenge against numerous stream snipers with an insane PUBG killing spree.

As one of the most popular streamers on the planet, shroud encounters more than his fair share of stream snipers; players that watch his stream and try to follow or kill him in any game that he plays.

Usually he tries to ignore them but during a recent stream he decided to embrace it, saying “let’s have a party” and choosing a small island for all players to land on. There was just one stipulation: no guns allowed.

An astonishing number of opponents ended up landing with the former CS:GO pro and, predictably, one picked up an S12K semi-automatic shotgun.

That opponent didn’t last long, though, as shroud dropped him with punches before picking up the weapon and going to town on the rest of the stream snipers.

Shroud went on an incredible 18 kill streak before finally running out of ammunition and being dropped by one of the stream snipers.

While getting some revenge on stream snipers is sure to feel good, dealing with the constant onslaught of them is becoming more of an issue for high profile streamers than ever before.

One of the only ways to combat them is to impose a stream delay, but most content creators try to avoid doing that as it makes interacting with viewers and their chat significantly more difficult.

The Indian government has banned PUBG Mobile, one of the most popular mobile games in the country, along with over 100 more apps with links to Chinese publishers.

PUBG Mobile has a touchy history in India specifically. Countless news reports of teens becoming incredibly addicted to the game have filled Indian media for over two year. The game has been blamed for bad exam results, and in some extreme stories, death.

The controversy around PUBG Mobile in India has prompted calls for the government to ban it in the past, by a student association worried about its effect on education.

On September 2, India’s Interior Ministry banned the game, along with 118 other apps, citing concerns around cybersecurity, as tensions with China rise.

PUBG Mobile was one of the most popular games on iOS and Android in India.

They said the apps were “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, Defence of India, Security of State and Public Order.”

The move follows India’s previous bans of other Chinese social media apps, including TikTok.

In a statement, the Indian government said: “The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside of India. There has been a strong chorus in the public space to take strict action against apps that harm India’s sovereignty as well as the privacy of our citizens.”

Other banned apps, via TechCrunch, include Baidu, WeChat Work, Tencent Weiyun, Rise of Kingdoms, APUS Launcher, Tencent Weiyun, VPN for TikTok, Mobile Taobao, Youko, Sina News and CamCard.

PUBG Mobile is notable though, because of how wildly popular it was in the country. In March 2019, police actually arrested ten students who were playing the game because the game had been banned in that specific region.

“Our team caught these youths red-handed. They were taken into custody after they were found playing the PUBG game,” said Police inspector Rohit Raval at the time.
