ShivFPS is a popular Apex Legends streamer over on Twitch, known for his outrageous and volatile content. Fans of his love watching his over-the-top reactions and, at times, rudeness towards opponents.

Like many other streamers, Shiv has also experienced hardships against hackers and cheaters. It must take a toll on you when you’re constantly being locked out of the game, receiving hateful messages, and being a target of hackers to ruin your experience.

In one of Shiv’s recent streams, he gained some revenge over a hacker who has previously been making his life a living hell, locking him out of the game preventing him from not only playing but receiving income as this is ultimately a streamer’s job, to play the game.

Shiv’s reaction was, of course, extreme and pretty shocking. However, if you know the context and how much this hacker has been tormenting his experience, the reaction could be seen as more understanding.
