While playing the Twitch Rivals Rust event during his latest stream, Twitch star Eric “Erobb221” made a humorous in-game mishap when he unintentionally killed both his teammates and himself. While reloading his rocket launcher and engaging in combat with an enemy, one of his teammates unexpectedly crossed his path, prompting him to accidentally fire the rocket launcher, killing the trio.
Fans were quick to criticize the streamer and question his skills, as they believed that he had sufficient time to react after spotting his teammate in front of him before firing the rocket launcher. One Reddit user noted:
“Immediately tries to blame the team mate who he literally aimed a rocket at for like 3 seconds before shooting lmao. Liability221 strikes again”
