Lirik’s unfortunate grenade throw in DayZ ends in death

The American streamer's attempt to murder a DayZ bandit doesn't end well


We all know DayZ is a brutal game to play. Depending on what server you play, you generally start off with absolutely nothing to your name. You spend hours working your way to the nearest town to gear up only to be mauled by a wandering or shot in the back by a bandit wearing a clown mask. But that’s part of the experience, right?

Well, after watching some of Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid’s stream from October 14, I’m not sure Lirik enjoyed his rage-inducing experience with Bohemia Interactive’s iconic survival game. After stumbling across a player in a police station in Berezino, Lirik manages to punch him unconscious. But instead of just murdering him in cold blood, the American, who has over 2.4 million followers on Twitch, got a bit too cocky.

Throwing grenades isn’t easy in a game that’s riddled with bugs, and Lirik learned that the hard way – much to the amusement of his chat.

“Sayonara b****”, he shouts as he launches a grenade in the room. But after the explosion kills both him and the stranger, Lirik is thrown back to the dreaded menu screen of the game.

In the world of gaming achievements, this double kill might not be one of Lirik’s favourites, but it certainly provided his chat with something to laugh at during his Sub Sunday marathon.
