Battlestate Games is not a publisher known for having scandalous or questionable content reveals. But the one time they did, it stuck around it resurfaces almost yearly to remind everyone of what happened.
During the gun reveal live stream a few years ago, one of the participants of the stream pointed an empty 1911 handgun at another streamer's head and pulled the trigger which left everyone involved, including Nikita Buyanov, in clear shock.
The act was labelled as ‘self-destructive behaviour’ in the Twitch Community Guidelines, and the official ruling stated that “Any activity that may endanger your life or lead to your physical harm is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: suicide threats”.
Now, due to the new Twitch Drops event starting, this incident has resurfaced again and we can confirm that the official Battlestate Games Twitch account has not been banned again and the Twitch Drops event will be running according to the schedule.
Ever since the incident Battlestate Games have been very careful as to how they reveal the upcoming content for Escape from Tarkov and where they reveal it.
