A Fortnite Troll Massacred A Party To Set The World Record For Kills
With all its dancing, crafting, and bouncy house concerts, it's easy to forget that Fortnite is all about killing your competition in a brutal battle for points. But one troll didn't forget. So when all the other players were gathered together for a lovely night of nonviolence, he literally pulled the rug out from under their feet.
In the summer of 2018, Fortnite devs hyped a mysterious event that would occur on June 30 at 1:30 p.m. EST. Right before the countdown ended, tens of thousands of players logged on, not to bash in each others' skulls, but merely to watch as some weird rocket ripped into the skies. And in the spirit of the unofficial ceasefire, some even decided to work together to build massive towers, giving everyone a front-row seat.
But while all eyes were aimed at the sky, 48 players suddenly plummeted to their deaths. Their observation tower had collapsed, presumably due to those notoriously lax in-game building codes. Then they were informed they had in fact been killed by someone called Elemental_Ray. Instead of enjoying the spectacle, he'd kept his eyes on the prize: winning the battle royale. So when he saw a group of players build a tower and then leave its base unguarded, he knew a sure way to get 48 kills with one swing of a pickax.
But Elemental_Ray got a bit more infamy than he bargained for when it turned out he'd griefed his way into the Fortnite world record for most kills in a single game. The community got as angry as it could, going as far as to call Elemental_Ray "the kind of person who pours milk before the cereal." To this, the world record holder replied, "Even Jesus had haters."
