LazarBeam hilariously wins Fortnite match without ever moving

Australian Fortnite YouTuber Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott showed that it’s actually possible to win a match without ever moving, at all.

After a few attempts, LazarBeam developed his do-nothing strategy of sitting on flagpoles and hoping he doesn’t get spotted by opposing players.

While his first try was going decently well, he got unlucky with the zones, and found himself in a situation where the storm would eliminate him.

LazarBeam is one of the top Fortnite YouTubers.

In his second attempt, the YouTuber fell victim to a helicopter, causing him to place at a less-than-stellar 73.

Eventually, the entertainer came up with a big-brain plan to ensure he’d win without moving – but it would take a bit of luck to make work.

“The problem is, you have to get a perfect circle in this, it takes hours,” he stated, not referencing the American rock band of the same name. “Even if I get a perfect circle, people die too slowly. There’s too many alive.”

As part of LazarBeam’s epiphany, he realized that he could use his friend ‘mrfreshasian’ to do all the heavy lifting for him.

“My friend Fresh is one of the best players in the world,” he said. “I’ll stream snipe him without him knowing and he’s going to kill the entire lobby so quick that it’s going to be just me and him left, and then I’m going to run into his room and unplug his PC.”

LazarBeam’s stationary attempts weren’t working at first.

And with that, the Australian basically became Tom Cruise – because he was embarking on a near-impossible mission.

His final attempt went pretty smoothly at first, with the entertainer hiding in a tree while his friend went ahead to kill the entire lobby.

After lucking out on zones and making it to the top 10, Fresh continued to rack up kills keeping the dream alive, much to the delight of LazarBeam who cheered “like a parent at a soccer game.”

LazarBeam had to hijack Fresh’s computer.

Once Fresh managed to kill the third remaining player, it was the YouTuber’s time to strike as he ran into his friend’s room and executed the last step of his master plan by taking control of his PC and exiting Fortnite earning the victory royale.

“Holy sh*t!” he cried in glee at the outcome. “I sat all game and I got the victory royale.”

So, while Eacott proved it was possible to win at Fortnite without moving, it’s not something that’s super feasible for those at home – unless you happen to live with a God-tier gamer and get insanely lucky.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
