Shroud wipes entire PUBG team after leaping over an oncoming car

Mike ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek can add another absurd clip to his highlight reel in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds after he pulled off another yet unlikely sequence in-game.

When you tune into a Shroud stream, you can expect to see mind-blowing plays every once in a while that insane enough to convince you that he is cheating, or that he’s some sort of superhuman cyborg. 

Playing on the newest PUBG map, Vikendi, alongside former Cloud9 teammate Tyler ‘Skadoodle’ Latham and fellow streamer Chad, Shroud had to perform some evasive maneuvers while being hunted down by an enemy-filled vehicle. What followed, blew the collective mind of his Twitch chat.

ELEAGUEShroud has become of the most notable names on Twitch.

With a car full of enemies bearing down on him, Shroud took one leap over the oncoming vehicle before landing back on his feet and unleashing rounds of bullets into the car. The former Counter-Strike professional claimed one kill with his method of spraying bullets before he switched weapons and pounded the outside of the car with another barrage of bullets.

After a few direct hits, the already smoking car soon turned to dust as it exploded, handing Shroud the kills, via vehicle explosion, he sought out after leaping over the car moments prior.

It should come as no surprise to viewers that Shroud is capable of ridiculous highlight plays such as this.

During his January 19 stream, Shroud pulled off a kill in Rainbow Six Siege that had his chat convinced he had to be cheating because it looked like he had simply locked on to the enemy who happened to be behind a wall. 

When the Candian Twitch Streamer pulls off clips like this, it should come as no surprise to anyone. The former CS:GO pro is simply THAT good at FPS games.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
