Oz gamer breaks world record with five-and-half day 'Call of Duty' session
A gamer from Sydney has created a new world record after playing 'Call of Duty: Black Ops 2' - for more than five-and-a-half days.
28-year-old Okan Kaya played the super hit game for a total of 135 hours and 50 minutes, in the process smashing the previous record for continuous gaming that stood at 120 hours and seven minutes, the Daily Mail reported.
He began his marathon session on Tuesday and was permitted to take a ten minute break every hour. He kept his energy up with sports drinks and light meals.
"My hands were cramping up and I went through a lot of bandages. I even tried to 'pad up' my controller," the publication quoted Kaya, a sales manager for online retailer 4Cabling, as saying.
Guinness allowed the breaks to be stored up and taken at once, so Kaya was able to sleep for several hours at a time.
