One unfortunate gamer had to pause his Twitch stream after getting a little too panicked during a virtual reality game and accidentally slamming his mouth against his mantelpiece.
Twitch is a hive of all sorts of unexpected content. From streamers blowing up cars to mark the end of the celebrations, to cats nearly setting fire to their owners’ homes, the purple platform has something for everyone.
Unfortunately, Twitch is also prone to catching the odd accident while it’s happening live… which happened to an unfortunate streamer during a VR gaming session.
‘Mekise’ is an Italian FPS streamer with a love for all things Apex Legends. However, he decided to change his usual repertoire with a heavily involved VR game.
In the game, Mekise was placed in some sort of escape room where he had to find a key to escape from a robotic nemesis bent on destroying himself and all of humanity.
Trying to find the key, Mekise bent down to pick it up – and ended up banging his mouth on his mantelpiece.
Despite his best attempts to throw the key where he wanted it before being spotted, he was eventually spotted by the robot overlord. Oh, and he also “broke his mouth” in the process.
The streamer left his office to tend to his wounds before getting back in front of the camera, making sure viewers know he was fine but that he had definitely been beaten.
“It’s crazy! I destroyed myself!” he joked. “I’m fine, I’m just bleeding.”
“Oh my god! It hurts. ‘…it’s actually dangerous?'” he said, reading a concerned comment from his chat. “Because I’m an idiot. I should have just slowed down a bit, but I wanted to get there Out!”
This is far from the first time VR gaming has had an impact on the real world — in 2019, a streamer ran headfirst into a brick wall while trying to run away from a live grenade in-game.
