YouTube and Twitch streamer Ludwig “Ludwig” Ahgren recently admitted to cheating while playing the hit game Among Us during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last April 28, the streamer uploaded a video to YouTube that contained his startling confession. Ludwig admitted in a recent video that he had previously cheated in a pandemic-affected game. The YouTuber went on to say that he never cheated in any Among Us tournaments, only on his own content for his streaming services channel.

In 2020, Innersloth’s social destruction game became a massively popular gaming title, prompting lockdowns in several countries around the world to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

People were forced to stay at home during that time because vaccines for emergency use had not yet been released to the public. As a result, various governments around the world took drastic measures such as closing businesses and advising citizens to stay at home in order to avoid uncontrolled infections.

While many people were forced to spend the majority of their days inside their homes, some took advantage of the opportunity to socialize and pass the time by playing online games.

As a result, an online game called Among Us, which debuted in 2018, has taken the world by storm, with people at home inviting their friends and family to play it. Popular streamers like Pokimane and Disguised Toast have successfully taken advantage of the massive influx of players on Among Us to create videos featuring the Innersloth game almost every day.

However, Ludwig, a hugely popular streamer, did not want to be left behind. So, in order to compete with other massive content creators, he created compelling videos to increase views.

Ludwig admitted to cheating on Among Us during his Twitch streams. He said he did it for content and that he did it a couple of times.The YouTuber also stated that he did it in order to create juicy content, but that he would never do so during tournaments.
