Twitch streamer and Overwatch player Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has been hopping on the Blackout train – with some pretty hilarious hijinks along the way.
More than a few of these debacles are caught during his broadcasts. He suffered a pretty grueling defeat at the hand of a cluster grenade during one of his recent streams of the game, after his teammate stuck one to the body of a fallen player.
Although his teammate made sure to warn him in advance, it looks as if xQc didn’t see the body until he was already on top of it. The weapon exploded, killing both xQc and his teammate instantly.
xQc wasn’t too happy about this development, and took out his frustrations on his keyboard – as is tradition.
“You can’t be [serious],” he shouted. “You stuck him. Pogchamp.”
“What?” his teammate responded. “I did. I killed him.”
The streamer is known for his hilarious and over-the-top reactions during his broadcasts, which can stem from both rage-inducing moments and elation alike. It looks as if this instance marked one of the former scenarios, which his audience found especially entertaining.
Blackout is Call of Duty’s first-ever take on the battle royale genre. It released worldwide on October 12th alongside Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and is available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Although xQc is primarily an Overwatch player, he and other players from different scenes are having fun in Blackout mode – even if they suffer a few mishaps along the way.
