Hi DeniedBerry2211. Let's see if we can put your mind at rest.

Having an IP address does not mean they have your actual home address. Unless you pay for a static (fixed) IP address, most internet service providers use dynamic IP addresses, which means they can change at any point. The only people who can link an IP address at any specific point in time, is your ISP and this usually requires a court order to obtain. The closes they could possibly get to your real location is the town or city. When I look at the location of my IP address, it doesn't even show to be the same town!

A lot of gamers get threats like this, but I would just report / block them and carry-on having fun gaming.

Hope that helps.

I wouldn't call someone who did that a "close friend".

 If i was you i'd block this person & never have anything to do with them again.

I guess it kinda helps but this person has gone through a lot but I feel like if I block them that they will find me because they have also said that they can steal people accounts and all this stuff so if I did block them what do you think would happen?

If you still have the emails or whatever method they used to contact you with threats then report them to police.   Idiots should be locked up.  Second, report it to Microsoft to have their account removed.  If you are a kid living at home, tell your parents as well.
