Popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson hosted an insane, real-life battle royale in a format styled after Apex Legends featuring the likes of Jaiden Animation, Valkyrae, Alex Wasabi and so much more.

MrBeast brought together 39 YouTubers from all walks of entertainment to compete in two games with $100,000 going to the winning team.


YouTubers were split into 13 teams, while each member had three balloons tied to their helmet. Once all balloons were popped, that person was eliminated. Last team standing would take the prize.

The only thing more impressive than MrBeast’s party planning was the insanely huge arena where 250 Airsoft weapons were scattered throughout for players to find.


MrBeast had equipped each of their helmets with a GoPro to capture riveting moments as Airsoft pellets whizzed across the battlefield.

All of the teams were instantly feeling the pressure of a live battle royale as the action got more intense from the a makeshift zone of caution tape closing in.

The games featured all the drama ranging from teams not being able to find any weapons, balloons being caught by the closing zone, weapons being fought over upon pick-up, ambushes, multi-kills, teaming, flanks, big plays, etc.

After the dust settled, the Green Team made up of YouTubers Anythony Padilla, ‘Odd1sout’ and Jaiden Animation claimed victory in the first match. The second game was taken by the Dark Green team composed of Prestonplayz, Unspeakable and Typical Gamer.

Teams were left tattered and fatigued, but the event was an incredible adaptation of the action seen in a battle royale translated to real life.


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
