Twitch streamer DarkViperAU completed one of the most bizarre yet impressive Grand Theft Auto 5 challenges, completing a mission in the game’s story mode without firing a single bullet himself.

When you think of GTA, you think of high-speed car chases, crazy moments, and of course, lots of guns, so completing one of the game’s most challenging missions without pulling the trigger once is certainly a difficult, and perhaps slightly insane, task to set yourself.

For streamer DarkViperAU though, it was a challenge he was prepared to sink many hours into, and after 32 grueling hours, the content creator finally accomplished his goal, taking another massive step forward in his quest to complete the entire game without killing a single person.

Rockstar GamesDarkViperAU is trying to complete GTA V without killing a single person.

DarkViperAU was attempting to complete Blitz Play, the game’s third Heist mission which sees all three main characters team up to rob a security truck which is hauling large sums of money around Los Santos. The set-up for this challenge is easy, with Michael parking a garbage truck across the road to block it, and Franklin ramming the security van with a tow truck of his own, before blowing the doors off and grabbing the cash inside.

Of course, this alerts the local law enforcement, who arrive with a ton of artillery ready to blast you and your team into oblivion. Usually, it’s time to pull out your weapon and start firing at anything that moves, but for the Australian, he had to rely on his teammates to do the dirty work for him. After 32 hours, Trevor finally blew up the people he needed to take out, meaning Franklin could escape, and DarkViperAU had marked off another mission.

“They’re moving up, three guys don’t move but if he can kill these four…” he said, with baited breath, before bursting into high-pitched screams of delight. “That’s two! We succeeded! We can’t lose. That’s the checkpoint, there’s nothing we can do now to fail! I’m so happy!”

While the streamer originally believed it had taken him 33 hours of attempting this mission to finally finish it, he confirmed on Twitter that the actual time was 32 hours, still an incredibly long period to spend in a game, especially when you’re relying on computer-controlled teammates to carry you through.

The Twitch streamer is currently working through the GTA V storyline doing what is known as a “pacifist run,” which means he is attempting not to kill anyone in-game himself, but AI-controlled characters can do as they please.

IRL drive-by stream sniper stuns Twitch streamer with expensive necklace

A Twitch streamer was given an over-the-top birthday gift from a stream sniping fan when he pulled up to her in his car.

IRL Twitch streamer ‘sushipotatoo’ was celebrating her birthday in Japan and everything seemed to be going great until a fan showed up with the intent to make it even better.

Stream sniping is normally associated with online games where viewers would find out what lobby the streamer they’re watching was in and try to queue into it themselves to interact with them.

However, with the popularity of IRL streams, this is sometimes taken to the next level with fans showing up in real world locations to say ‘hi’ or in sushipotatoo’s case, give away expensive gifts.

On February 24, the streamer was hanging out on the street when suddenly a fan pulled up in his car to talk to her.

“I watch your page!” he said, doing his best to speak English despite it clearly not being his first language. “It’s your birthday today!”

“Yea!” sushipotatoo blushed, but nothing could prepare her for what was going to happen next.

Out of nowhere, the viewer handed her a Tiffany necklace. These necklaces are not cheap and can cost anywhere from a few hundred to thousands of dollars.

“It’s so nice to meet you, thank you so much!” she exclaimed and proceeded to shake hands with the viewer, who, as it turns out, was watching her stream in his car.

The ecstatic streamer could hardly contain herself and eventually asked the fan if she could go into his car to open up the expensive gift.

sushipotatoo and her stream sniper hung out for a long time.

While getting into a car with a complete stranger may seem dangerous, the two ended up hugging and the generous donor even helped put the necklace around her.

If things weren’t already crazy enough, the two went for a drive and hung out until the morning where they went to get breakfast sushi.

As of the time of this posting the two are still hanging out, a clear sign that they are getting along and could very well become good friends. A happy ending to one of the craziest stream sniping stories in recent memory.
