Sykkuno Is Overjoyed With Lobster Spray in Valorant After Riot Recognizes Funny Mistake

Published 04/30/2021, 2:19 PM EDT


Riot Games might have done the most heartwarming gesture ever seen in Valorant. In one of his streams, Twitch streamer, Sykkuno, joked about a graffiti on Ascent, painted on the B-site wall. He called what looked like a four-legged animal a ‘lobster’. Very soon the internet was pouring with memes about the incident. However, Riot Games took the incident to another level with its new battle pass for Episode 2 Act 3.

Sykkuno saw the spray for the first time live on stream, and he was very confused at first.

“Wait a minute. Wait guys, I used to call this… Why did they call this a lobster? Is this because of me?”

However, as soon as he understood the situation, Sykkuno covered his face in disbelief. He could not seem to stop gushing about the gesture from Riot.

“Really? They actually did it for me? That is actually super cool. [….] That is the coolest thing ever. I gotta buy the battle pass now. They got me guys.”

While the battle pass went live on April 27, Riot has still not confirmed that the story behind naming this spray has anything to do with Sykkuno. Nonetheless, the question mark and the timing make it absolutely clear that the Twitch streamer has fans in Riot’s offices.
