Twitch streamer and Warzone gamer Bobby "OpTic BobbyPoff" has come under fire of late after belittling his opponents during a Warzone match where his opponents were on the hunt for their in-game Champion's Contract, a.k.a. the Nuke contract.

For those unaware, the Nuke contract allows players to detonate a Nuke that obliterates the entire lobby in one go. To procure a Nuke contract, a squad or player has to win five consecutive Warzone matches.

In the viral clip, OpTic BobbyPoff and his teammates were on a winning run. However, they ran into a squad of creators, which included fellow Warzone player Ethan "Stellar." Bobby was seen giving a vitriolic speech against them, resulting in subsequent criticism.

OpTic BobbyPoff is under fire today after a squad of streamers refused to back out on their Nuke contract while his squad was going for the Nuke and he had this to say

What did OpTic BobbyPoff say? Streamer addresses situation following backlash

OpTic BobbyPoff found himself facing heat from the gaming community after a clip of him admonishing his opponents for wiping their squad off went viral. The clip has already been shared by Ethan Stellar and online news reporter Jake Lucky, which has drawn criticism.

After being killed in-game, here's what he said in the clip:

“They use RPKs and Fennecs, and that’s all they can use. They have no skill, no talent, and no entertainment value. We are literally doing a challenge, that’s why people are watching it."

Continuing with his polemical attack, he said:

"Those guys are probably gonna be f**king irrelevant forever."

He also added:

"My stream is probably going to get more views than he has ever had on his f**king channel.”

His rant was quickly made public, resulting in the ensuing criticism. He has, however, responded to Ethan's tweet by replying:

@EthanStellar Stellar.. I’ve known you for 4 years since the blackout days. You could’ve easily dm’d me about this but posted a whole edit on the timeline instead. You were on another account, I never mentioned your name one time bc I didn’t know it was you. So how is this personal at all?

He also added:

@EthanStellar I’ll be the first to admit some of the stuff I said was over the line. Hour 13 of my stream going for a nuke using a pistol so the passion was flowing. That’s not an excuse for offending smaller streamers but the way this whole thing is framed as a personal attack is weird to me.

His initial response ended up provoking further objections. He eventually issued an apology on his stream. He said:

"There's no excuse for my actions. I said some pretty f**ked up sh*t. I said some horrible sh*t which is really unnecessary and not only that, I continue to talk about the fact of the matter for 10, 15 minutes, for long time, that's just a good look, especially when I influence a lot of people."

Fans react to situation

BobbyPoff's apology did not garner much rapport from the streaming community. Following his first rant, fans swarmed in with critical remarks. Here are some of them:

@JakeSucky Streamers when people shoot back O_O
@JakeSucky bro got a one piece villain laugh
@JakeSucky You failed to mention that the other team was also on a 4/5 streak. Report all the details.
@JakeSucky Jeez he gotta go and touch some grass
@JakeSucky So they were doing a pistol challenge for nukes. Because using pistols is a CHALLENGE. But then cry in cringe because another team was playing the game as well? They wanted the meta gun team to LET them have the nuke. Where’s the challenge here?
@JakeSucky This all could have been avoided if there was a ranked WZ playlist because watching ppl get nukes over and over again is not the business
@JakeSucky Am I missing something here or is my man just crying because another team stopped them getting a nuke? Like is that it? If so, the game’s the game, you got beat…this all feels mega cringe
@JakeSucky All I’m hearing in this video is crying. Skill issue.

Responding to his apology, one user said:

@holy_shepard @BobbyPoff @EthanStellar @yeet_FPS LMFAO. Dude doesn't even put it on his own Twitter.Issuing an apology doesn't right the wrongs dude. If anything, it proves how big of a tool he is thinking he is entitled to everything he is "owed".

Despite the controversy, OpTic themselves are yet to comment on the situation. It remains to be seen if the streamer will make further statements regarding the criticism.
