5 Most Amazing FPS Kills You've Ever Seen
Posted on Tuesday, March 5 @ 11:00:00 Eastern by GR_StaffThere are lots of ways to rack up a ton of kills and wipe the enemy team from your favorite map, but these killcams have documented some of the most extreme kills you can get in your favorite online shooter. Let's start our countdown with...
Battlefield 3 - Wha--?
Battlefield 3 doesn't actually feature killcams. Instead, you just get to see the smug satisfaction on your attacker's face after he's emptied your brains with a sniper rifle or blown you to pieces with an M1 Abrams Tank. That doesn't stop Youtube user shosho10199 from recording his own killcam... and the maniacal laughter to boot.
Here, shosho blatantly ignores the out-of-bounds warning to load an enemy vehicle up with explosive C4. It's not enough to get someone in their own spawn though. Shosho smartly waits for them to get in the helicopter and fly towards an objective. Yes, that's it, let them think they're safe... then, BOOM!
Call of Duty: Black Ops - Finish Him!
Obviously Black Ops is known for its Cold War narrative and tight map design, but Youtube user DjCliff86 will probably remember it for it's testicle-hit boxes. Hit boxes are the areas in which an enemy can be damaged. Apparently, "that guy's nuts" are also a very specific kind of hit-box.
Yes, this poor soul not only had his body ridden with bullets (which he survives), but he also had his genitalia blown up. I can't imagine the pain he must have not felt because this is a video game, and NOT REAL. Got it Fox News? I don't want to see any reports about teenagers being trained to attack the enemy's family jewels by video games.
Call of Duty (series) - Trickshots
This killcam doesn't really pertain to one game or another, as many entries in the Call of Duty series allow for Quick-Scoping, an act that lets snipers fire off one round, while apparently spinning in a circle, and still have the accuracy and stopping power of a headshot or otherwise fatal blow.
Honestly, I hate this stuff so much. It's one of the worst "things" in modern gaming, but maybe it's because I'm just not good enough to pull this off on my own. Regardless, here's 48 minutes of these "trickshots" so you can be as sick of them as I am.
Call of Duty: Black Ops - Chimney Sweep
This isn't necessarily a kill that someone else got on an unwitting player. Really, this player should stop trying to spam grenades and focus on the hazards around him. I mean, if he'd focused on pushing forward, through the house and not just camping a safe zone, maybe he wouldn't have been the victim of... himself.
I love the confused state this player is left in when he respawns. A slight turn left, a slight turn right... you know he's going to the in-game theater right after this match to see what went wrong with his strategy of nonchalantly throwing grenades.
Battlefield 1942 - LoopSnipe
This final killcam is now one of the all-time classics. Originally performed in 1942, the LoopSnipe has been performed in many ways across many different games since, but nothing will beat the way this player risks his vehicle and his life, all to take out one of the AA gunners who's preventing his team from making it ashore in Wake Island.
The death-defying attitude and grace of this killcam transcends gaming. This is like running a kickoff back for a touchdown to win the game in the final seconds. This is like a half-cout shot at the buzzer with a game-winning three. This is... well, there's really nothing else like it outside of video games is there?
