Most recently, xQc was playing Valorant and was talking about stream snipers with his teammates.

“Don’t you have other things to do other than stream sniping? I don’t get it, I really don’t get it,” asked the streamer.

To everyone’s surprise, one of xQc’s teammates recognized his voice, and claimed that he loves stream sniping.

This player said, “Is that xQc? I love stream sniping bro! xQc! I’m your biggest fan.”

As expected, this was enough to trigger the former Overwatch pro. He not only bashed his teammate, but started a heated verbal battle with them. Apparently, this teammate was also a subscriber of xQc.

“Shut up! Shut up! I don’t give a f**k.” said xQc while trolling the person for subscribing to him.

Valorant instantly bans the cheater in the middle of the game

After getting bashed by xQc, it seems like the player activated some third-party software to cheat. This could have been an attempt to overshadow the streamer during the game, and create a good impression.

However, Valorant instantly detected the cheater and ended the match. Naturally, this was a huge relief for xQc.

“This f*****g guy! This guy f*****g cheated, and sniped, and just got banned in the middle of the game.”

Here’s xQc’s reaction to the aforementioned incident, covered by PepegaWarlord – xQc Clips.
