Raids on Twitch: A few bots to watch out for
Are you entirely tired of lurk bots? Hate raids & lurk bots? I have a small list and some resources to go with!
It’s now been nearly two or more weeks since i’d first learned about these types of raids. Hateful, spiteful and basically coded in less than an hour from what people are saying. Are we back to the old IRC days where people just go bonkers at us and blame us for everyone’s issues? I know I am, because it happened to me in full once, and several people in my community have had it twice or more!
I’ll list a few of the lurk bots, and the ones that come in raids that are newer that aren’t on the usual websites. You do know we can’t always prevent these, and we’ll have to continue to use the tools we’ve been given sadly to slap them in the ban bin. Lurk bots DO NOT give you views, and while most are harmless, they do suck your gift subs. Not only that, but they give you anxiety if you’re unsure WHO or what they are.
A good resource beyond my post: (BAN THESE BOTS)
Raid Bots: Hate Raid or Idiot Raid?
For reference, gameover_jane is the twitch account for Dark Star Radio’s owner Jessika Darkstar. I’m a DJ there, and I mod her stream when I can. These are the bots coming off the recent lot of hate raids. Below is a bulleted list of the bots that are related to the hate raids: (There is possibly repeats as I copy resources from reddit and commander root, as well as my own lists)
- JudgeJudySlayer is a new one where it’s misspelled compared to the origin streamer – A LOT OF THESE bots are doxxing and impersonating real users now.

Now, if you’re wondering if there’s a list ton ACTUAL people to ban, aka: witch hunting real people – WE DO NOT do that. This blog is not for that, and witch hunts are extremely dangerous and can get you in more trouble otherwise. If you have an issue with another streamer, and they’ve done something illegal or out of line, ban them – report them and keep a record of what’s going on. You are welcome to privately warn people, but public witch hunts cause more harm than good.
