FaZe Cizzorz’s famous ‘Death Run’ obstacle course in Fortnite Battle Royale has driven many to the brink of insanity, and its latest victim is popular Twitch streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop.
With so many prominent Fortnite pro players and content creators trying their hand at the impossibly difficult course, CouRage felt that the time was right for him to attempt to conquer the challenge.
The experience began comfortably for the streamer, who began boasting about how easy the course was for him after he quickly completed the first of nine levels.
However, “easy” turned to “hard” then to “dumb” in a matter of moments as he realized just how difficult the course actually became once he passed the early stages.
As he repeatedly failed to make routine jumps and got caught in trap after trap, the frustration began to build and his reactions became more and more desperate and ridiculous.
Of course, from a viewer’s perspective, the whole ordeal was very much hilarious, especially when certain events took place during the stream that provoked CouRage into further levels of irritation.
For example, there was a moment when his father came into the room and, upon seeing his son’s failures, comically remarked “it’s almost as bad as 0-15,” alluding to CouRage’s infamous 0-15 performance during a wager match in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
Others present in the chat at the time included the course’s creator Cizzorz, as well as Ninja, who kept donating bits and poking fun at CouRage’s struggles.
While watching someone struggle on that course may be funny, actually trying to beat it can be a horrible experience, especially because the levels get progressively harder and to the point where it almost seems impossible.
The course is not impossible, however, as two players have managed to beat it at incredible speeds, including the current record holder who completed it in under five minutes.
With so many in the community trying their hand at the Death Run, Cizzorz has given players until the start of the new year to try and beat the current time, and the one who holds the fastest completion time will win a cash prize.
