Ex CS:GO Pro Shroud ran into a fellow PUBG player in a humorous turn of events.

Streaming presents an array of opportunities for broadcasters to meet new players and viewers. Little did Shroud know – he’d be going on a shopping trip during one of his own streaming excursions.


Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek once played professional CS:GO for team Cloud9. Now, he is a full-time streamer – and that means getting into some hijinks every now and then.

During one of his runs in PUBG, Shroud was confronted with a another player who wasn’t necessarily looking for a kill.


Upon entering a hut, Shroud was met with an array of items, set up in what the player called, ‘the shop.’ Shroud played along, asking for the ‘seller’s’ best items.

“May I get you something?”

“Okay, what do I need for that level 3 helmet? I have no support in here.”

Shroud had to trade a pan he’d recently copped from another player in exchange for the goods.

“The pan gets you all the level 3 gear.”

“The pan?”

“That is a nice-looking pan, son.”

“That’s a deal. Take the pan of judgement.”

Shroud sealed the deal and walked away with a new slew of gear. Their interaction ended with an exchange of polite ‘thank-you’s,’ proving that not all stream snipers are out for clout – sometimes, they just want to make a sweet deal.

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.
