Chatty Twitch Highlights 4: Payday 2 Shack heist, Wargame ShackBattle, and more

This week's Chatty Twitch Highlights emphasize teamwork, as nyranger66 leads a hardened Chatty crew through a Payday 2 heist, Squid Division tries to bleed Los Santos dry in Grand Theft Auto Online, and Hemtroll leads his PACT team of Shackers against MercFox1's NATO scum in Wargame: Airland Battle.


The theme for this edition of Chatty Twitch Highlights is teamwork. Teamwork is important in all aspects of life, especially if you're trying to rob people. Escaping with gobs of loot is a lot easier when you're a well-oiled machine, as we learn with some Twitch highlights of Shackers running through Payday 2 and Grand Theft Auto 5. And then there's the competitive aspect of teamwork, as we sit at the of our seats over which Chatty team reigns supreme in Wargame: Airland Battle.

Here's a compilation of some of the best Shacknews Twitch highlights for the week of February 8, 2014.

Payday 2

While it's fun to watch Shackers compete in deathmatches and the like, the Chatty community is ultimately at its best when it's cooperating for a common cause. That brings me to Payday 2, where nyranger66 has taken fellow Chatty members sigpro, timaste, and JT out for a heist. With snipers lurking about on nearby rooftops and police special forces closing in quickly, our capable crew of Shack thieves must be perfectly coordinated at all times in order to escape with their loot. Check out the video below and see if they're up to the task.

Wargame: Airland Battle

Once Shackers put their heads together to cooperate, it's quite a sight. That's especially true if they cooperate in an effort to pummel other Shackers. That takes us to this week's Shackbattle, hitting the RTS wonderland known as Wargame: Airland Battle. Watch as Hemtroll teams up with ArcKnight, timaste, and nyranger66 to fill the PACT ranks to take on the NATO scum comprised of MercFox1, Eqves, thane, and JozhGoober.

Grand Theft Auto 5

Let's bring the heisting idea full circle by ending this week's highlights with some Grand Theft Auto Online action. Squid Division ventures around the online world of Los Santos with his trusty partner in tow, flying around in a helicopter and shopping for short shorts. That's followed up by a whole lot of armed robberies, which is made a lot easier by their helpful helicopter. Then it's time to race!
