Apparently, an opponent did not die even after xQc bombed them. True to his nature, the streamer complained about it.

“How does it make any sense? Okay? In a real life scenario. This guy gets bombed, right there, and doesn’t die.” said xQc.

In any other game, xQc’s teammates might have agreed with him. Unfortunately, it was a classic Call of Duty lobby and his teammates outright told him to stop complaining and just play the game.

Even xQc didn’t resist, and told his teammates that they were terrible. This was enough to start a verbal battle where everyone started abusing and insulting each other. Moreover, xQc’s teammates mocked him by laughing.

A post on r/LivestreamFail described the aforementioned incident as xQc having a ‘true COD experience’:

Did the Black Ops Cold War players cross the line?

It is worth noting that Twitch does not tolerate any sort of racial slurs and offensive words on livestreams. Unfortunately, such language is very common in multiplayer lobbies, and especially in Call of Duty multiplayer.

Some of the most prominent Call of Duty streamers often mute their teammates who use offensive slurs and language. This not only keeps their content family-friendly, but saves their channels from Twitch’s suspension.
