Twitch streamer Jesse ‘MOONMOON’ was left stunned after failing a flawless 12-hour DOOM Eternal speedrun attempt on the final boss.

MOONMOON has built an audience of over 800,000 followers on Twitch, known for broadcasting a wide variety of games on his channel.

During his March 28 broadcast, he was set to prove his worth on yet another game and set himself the challenge of attempting an Ultra-Nightmare Permadeath speedrun on the recently released DOOM Eternal.

MOONMOON’s speedrun attempt was stopped short during the final boss fight in DOOM Eternal.

Although speedrun attempts in other titles sometimes allow players to make small slip-ups here and there, DOOM’s permadeath mode gives players only one life and requires a lot of focus.

Having had multiple playthroughs of id Software’s new title since its release, MOONMOON was much more confident the third time around on March 28.

The streamer demonstrated his skills by flying through the game’s early stages, making it look easy leaving many viewers impressed with how his attempt was going.

Unfortunately, while taking on the final boss, the giant Icon of Sin, he was cut down by one of the Baron’s that spawned after making one brutal error.

By this point, MOONMOON had put in over 12 hours of flawless gameplay and was left devastated after realizing what had happened. “I was mid-swing… dude I’m done we almost did it,” he said, disappointed with how close he was, “oh my god that hurts.”

MOONMOON was then interrupted with a supportive bit donation from one of his viewers that had come in at the worst time, cheering the streamer on in his attempt with a simple “you got this.”

Despite his disappointment, MOONMOON immediately saw the funny side in the situation, replying, “No I don’t,” before bursting into laughter and ending his stream shortly after.

He later revealed that he was unlikely to attempt that ridiculous speedrun again but was still proud that he came so close this early into the game’s release.

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
