If you randomly get a fuzzy hair up your ass, and decide to become the Guinness world record holder for longest gaming session on Call of Duty, you should probably just go ahead and give up now.
That’s because, the current record held by an Australian named Okan Kaya, holds the record for continuously playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for five-and-a-half days at a stretch. FIVE freaking days, man.
This Australian guy absolutely destroyed the previous record, blew it to pieces. The old record stood at 120 hours and seven minutes. His new record stands at 135 hours and 50 minutes. Eat shit, old record guy.
His world record setting gameplay began on a Tuesday. He was only allowed to take a ten minute break every hour. He kept his spirits up by having energy drinks, and light meals frequently.
Here’s what he had to say:
My hands were cramping up and I went through a lot of bandages. I even tried to ‘pad up’ my controller.’
What might have worked to his favor was the fact that Guinness allowed the breaks to be stored. This meant he was able to cash in several of his breaks at once, enabling him to sleep for hours at a stretch.
If you’re still thinking about breaking his record, be warned that a Twitch streamer recently died while doing a 24 hour livestream.
