Backseating has been a thing however long livestreaming has been well known

 While having a talk can be an aid in certain situations, backseating takes it an additional mile and can disturb decorations who are attempting to sort out the game for themselves

In  God of War Ragnarok, sidekicks will frequently ring in to give the player hints toward what they need to do straightaway, or something they might be absent to advance.

But, for Twitch streamer Elajjaz, in-game backseating went too far – with the Streamer threatening to mute voice volume to avoid the combat chatter.

However, Elajjaz was furious at the backseating of Freya, his in-game companion during a boss fight

She was constantly pestering Kratos (and, by extension, the streamer) to parry attacks and dodge properly

The clip shows his first attempt at the boss fight – one where he died shortly after. Frustration would only build as more and more of Freya’s voice lines taunted him into action

Freya would say a line like, “Is that what Sparta taught you? Close your ground!” at points where he physically couldn’t get close to the boss

Ela’s chat got in on it, comparing Freya to backseaters that would be in his chat. Except she’s in game and can’t be avoided

While he said he liked the fight by the time he bested Nidhogg, Freya’s commentary was certainly not appreciated by the streamer.
