Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has stirred up some controversies in OfflineTV’s Rust server since he started playing, and now even his gifted loot drops have kicked up a fuss. 

He’s done everything from win high profile court cases on Rust, to leaving streamers like shroud suggesting he’d kick him from the server due to the Canadian dishing out stream sniping accusations. Though, this time it was actually his kindness that set players down a dark path.

On January 4, the streamer decided to drop a few useful items for fellow streamer MafiaJinx, who was delighted such a high-profile name helped her out. Finding the right loot to protect yourself in-game isn’t always easy and xQc continued his trend of helping out others in-game.

“May the blood God shine blessings upon you,” she said, after he singled her out from a group to hand over some loot. It was a protective helmet and a weapon to boot.

Instead of accepting they were now in her possession, SwaggerSouls took things a step further and decided to hunt her down soon after.

In what didn’t immediately appear to be a standoff, but quickly turned into one, he asked if she would gladly hand the items over. However, ‘no’ wasn’t quite the desired answer, and nobody could have predicted what would happen next.

After being asked about the availability of the items, she said: “I am a sentimental girl and I am touched in the heart by xQc’s kindness, and I would not ever give away the items he gifted to me.”

Soon enough, though, the decision was taken out of her hands. As she turned around to harvest wood from a tree, using an axe, SwaggerSouls hit back: “Well, what if hypothetically, this was a robbery?”

Before she had time to shoot, MafiaJinx was gunned down by the cold-blooded character.

It just goes to show that roleplaying in the Rust server and being kind to people doesn’t always get you what you want.

In a land packed with streamers and competitive players, turning your back on a potential threat might not be the best move. Maybe next time Jinx will take a different course of action, but then again she laughed it off regardless.

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
