Gamers don't always communicate strategy with their online team members.

Some of the most bizarre things can be heard in online gaming.


For the uninitiated, online gaming has become a multi-billion dollar industry where the number of enthusiastic players engaging in a virtual community with people from all walks of life has increased.

Voice chat apps like Discord, Overtone, or TeamSpeak3 have become increasingly prevalent due to its preferred method of communication over typing out messages on keyboards.

But the things players say in the heat of the moment can raise eyebrows.

NSFW comments from a sore loser or a disturbing argument heard in the background were some of the examples strangers shared when Redditor SON_MF_GOKU asked:

"Gamers of reddit, what was the most f'ked up thing you heard in a voice chat?"

Fridge On Fire

"While raiding on World of Warcraft our raid leader's fire alarm went off mid boss pull (open mic). He immediately starts yelling and throws his headset down without muting it. In the background all we hear is 'Ohhh f'k no.' and the sound of a door slamming. After a minute we hear weird cracking and groaning noises so I decide to phone him. Turns out his fridge had caught fire and his small flat was already half engulfed by the time the fire alarm had reacted. If he had not got out then then he probably wouldnt have been alive. Guy was literally standing outside of his flat in no shoes and he sadly lost everything including his clothes that day. A few years down the line and he is doing much better now though!"

Sore Loser

"Just the other day in Warzone I heard the funniest death mic after I killed someone. It sounded like some male and he just said, in the most monotone voice, 'You're adopted. You should kill yourself.' Made me laugh because it was so unexpected compared to the normal rage mics and the delivery really sold it."

The Crunching

"I've heard so many f'ked up things over the years, but seeing as how there's a bunch of those, I have a funny moment I won't forget. This guy was crunching very loudly on the mic during a game of Halo. So I decided to grab a soda and chips and crunch back. Then more and more people started chiming in and no joke, half of the team never said a single word to each other. It was just constant crunching and loud sipping. Normally that sh*ts annoying, but half a lobby doing it without any other communication was pretty funny."

The Triumphant Exclamation

"Wasn't the most messed up but it was pretty funny, I was playing overwatch and as we got released to capture the point a dude yelled 'BIG D*CK ENERGY' and then silence ... And then 'SORRY, I guess everyone in my daughter's zoom class heard me' wherever he is now I hope he's doing well"

Auditory Abuse

"A man beating his children, then his wife when she tried to defend them. Police were called and he was arrested. I was on with his 14 yr old son."

The A**hole

"Oh man... MW2 lobby when I was in 8th grade. 2 Dudes getting into it. Guy 1 said 'I hope your mother dies.' Guy 2 is quiet for a second and says, more solemnly 'That's f'ked up... she got cancer and died about a year back.'

CarsenAF

Morbid Recollection

"Some guy I knew got drunk and started talking about how he watched his friend die when they were kids. He was crying telling all of us the story, everybody was silent."

Funknics

Demon Dog & Using Coke

"Overhearing a woman crying in the background because their dog was dead. About 5 minutes later the dog woke up and the guy was trying to convince others that the dog was possessed."

What 'Samantha' Wants

"Playing Black Ops 2 Circa 2013."

"A kid kept dying and he said 'Well Tickle my anus and call me Samantha' and that has stuck with me for about 8 years."

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.

Who doesn't love a good joke?

And one needn't be a professional comedian to always have a joke in their back pocket to make people laugh.

Particularly as there are certain types of jokes which are almost always guaranteed to elicit at least a tiny chuckle.

They could be knock-knock jokes, "little johnny" jokes, and of course the "yo mamma" jokes.

Though always teetering on the boundaries of good taste, the possibilities of jokingly insulting the mother of a friend, or foe, are endless, and more often than not, hilarious.

People Break Down Which TV Shows No One Else Seems To Remember

As a kid, I remember being obsessed (like obsessed) with David the Gnome and his fox Swift. I was tuned in daily to watch the adventures, get all misty eyed for the hurt animals the gnomes saved, and sobbed in abject wonder when the gnomes finally lived all 400 years of their gnome life and transitioned into the trees that make up the woods they live in.

The trees are their ancestors, y'all! The treeees! They protect the trees because they're family. Trees grow intertwined because they were so in love when they were gnomes.

Fam! This show was everything ... except memorable for other people because I was in my 30s talking to someone from another country before I met the first person who remembered this show.

Which, honestly, is kind of insulting to gnomes and trees.
