Apex Legends streamer iiTzTimmy set himself out for a goal, and there was no stopping him. In a record-setting non-stop grind that consumed 54 hours, the pro gamer effectively jumped from the Bronze rank to Predator.
iiTzTimmy is no stranger to high intensity gaming and devastating ranked matches, but fans were surprised by his announcement at the start of his stream on Saturday that he would be aiming for Predator rank within the next 54 hours.
According to Game Rant, the streamer also said that he will be livestreaming the entire affair for the benefit of his viewers, who settled in to watch the player do his usual content of decimating match after match.
For the remainder of Saturday, iiTzTimmy took on various teams and matches in the Season 10 Ranked lobbies and steadily climbed in rank towards his stated goal of Predator.
When Sunday arrived, netizens following his stream watched in disbelief as iiTzTimmy continued grinding without even taking a moment’s rest. Throughout Sunday and until early Monday, the Apex Legends streamer continued to climb in ranks until he finally reached the Predator rank.
The non-stop grind, Game Rant said, saw viewership stats in his channel reach an average of 106,951 in the last few hours of the stream.
Many fans immediately jumped to Twitter to congratulate the Apex Legends streamer and to tell him to finally take his rest. Among these is the official Twitter of the game, who urged him not to try playing 54 hours straight again.
Apex Legends is developed by Respawn Entertainment, who fired the game’s lead game designer Daniel Zenon Klein last week over offensive content published more than a decade ago.
