Yet, sometimes, the former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional opts to try his hand at a less-challenging game like The Sims or, more recently, Minecraft. Of course, he can’t use his human aim-bot abilities to wow fans in those titles and instead has to find something else to entertain them with. That’s where his comedic side is on full show.
TWITCH:SHROUDShroud is usually stoic on-stream, but can pull out jokes.
During his August 3 stream, shroud had been playing some Minecraft VR with Hannah ‘Bnans’ Kennedy when the pair found themselves stuck in a cave and searching for a way out. With Bnans’ health running low, shroud tossed over a cooked porkchop in a bid to give her a boost.
Of course, immediately after she had done so, Bnans was set upon by a fast-moving baby zombie, who began whittling away her health. “You got Tyler1 behind you, you got Tyler 1,” called out shroud once he realized what was happening.
“I got him, I got him, come here Tyler,” the former CS:GO pro added, as he poked the tiny zombie to death with a sword. “Don’t fucking hit my girlfriend like that.”
Yet, it wasn’t just Tyler1 who caused disruption during the couples stream. In fact, shroud himself did damage to Bnans – completely by accident – with a hilarious outcome.
The Canadian had been gifting his girlfriend some armor and tools before he started dancing, clearly happy with his work. Yet, he left his sword equipped and he swung his arms in the air, the game decided to attack Bnans and take some health away.
Recognizing his mistake, shroud immediately ran and hit in a corner, going completely silent and looking pretty solemn – despite his viewers laughing about the whole exchange.
If the couple decide to keep up their Minecraft adventures moving forward, shroud might just need to be aware of friendly fire.
Who knows, he might even run into a spider that he can mock for being a Dr Disrespect look-a-like.
