Currently, he is in a love affair with Valorant but has played other games from time to time. Apex Legends is one of them. Before the launch of Season 5, Shroud revealed his plans for a brief return to Respawn’s battle royale. Eventually, after the release, he came back to check out the additions and changes entailed, as he does for each new season in the game.

Recently, in a stream sponsored by Electronic Arts, Shroud took us back to 2019, when much of his content was based on Apex Legends. He would go on owning players and making insane plays without breaking a sweat. His latest sponsored stream gave his fans as well as Apex fans the content they had been waiting for.

Shroud plays Apex Legends Season 5

The Mixer star teamed up with Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham (IGN- Skadewdie) and Timothy “sYnceDez” Putrow (IGN- xWingManLord69x), showcasing their synergy en route to multiple wins.

The majority of Shroud’s gameplay centered on Loba, obviously, as she is the new legend. But, he also picked Revenant, to check out the innovative voice lines added with the Season 5 update. However, Shroud was done with the Simulacrum soon and switched back to Loba. At times, he used Loba’s bracelet too precisely to teleport to enemies’ locations and catch them by surprise.

Although the trio prevailed in most gunfights and kept making silky smooth plays, there were a few bumps along the ride. Sometimes Shroud would get knocked; other times, it would be Skadoodle or sYnceDez. But, when a team features three extremely skilled gamers, a few knocks here and there isn’t a worry. Even if both teammates are downed, the third is more than capable of clutching it out and saving them. In another instance, Shroud accidentally threw a thermite grenade on himself, which shows that even he makes a few mistakes at times.

All those minor bumps aside, the terrific trio was crowned “Champion” multiple times. They kept outdoing opponents with their flawless synergy and brilliant plays. Check out the highlight video of the sponsored stream uploaded by Shroud and enjoy the top-notch gameplay.
