Be it Fortnite, PUBG, Apex Legends, or Call of Duty: Blackout, grabbing that first win in any battle royale title gives you plenty of satisfaction. You’ve managed to outlast a whole lobby of other players in the survival of the fittest.
Alongside their victories, many players opt to try their hand at bagging as many kills as possible too. Fortnite and Apex Legends have world records that are continually monitored and updated, however, while Sideshow’s first victory will go down in history - it won’t find itself breaking any kill records anytime soon.
During a stream on October 3, Sideshow had been playing alongside Brennon ‘Bren’ Hook with the aim of grabbing three consecutive Overwatch wins, an Apex Legends victory, and the top spot in a Fortnite match.
Of course, they managed to tick the Overwatch part of that list off with success, before turning to Apex. Instead of hot dropping on the game’s new map, however, they took it easy - with Sideshow sat around, avoiding contact.
The Overwatch League analyst managed to survive until the final circle without running into any other player at all. As luck had it, he could sit in a corner within a building, prompting his opponent to come at him. Yet, it didn’t work out that way, with the other player falling to the zone and giving Sideshow’s squad the victory – sparking wild celebrations.
"They died to the storm!" screamed Bren after the Apex Champion message had popped up on-screen. As another voice screamed “No way!” the caster slammed his desk before bouncing around in his chair.
Just as everyone else tried to scream and shout over each other in celebration, Bren didn’t know what to do or say. He tried to throw his headphones off before stopping, and even repeatedly asked “what, what” as he searched for something coherent to say.
Bagging a win inside the fast-paced arena of Apex Legends without dealing any sort of damage is clearly a unique feat, but not one that everyone should attempt - there are easier ways to become an Apex Champion.
