AN AUSTRALIAN GAMER has played Activision's Call of Duty for 135 hours.
The chap, who works at a company called 4cabling, played the game for that long, but with allowed breaks, in order to break a record. It might also have improved his kill/death ratio - we don't know.
Okan Kaya started playing the game on 13 November and 4cabling documented his experience on its Facebook page.
The previous record stood at 120 hours and 7 minutes, but Okan smashed that with his routine of standing up and playing, sitting down and playing, and taking regular short naps.
"4Cabling sales manager Okan Kaya has set the new world record for longest online gaming marathon at 135hrs 50mins," says a post on the Australian cabling firm's Facebook page.
"Finishing up with a mad career ranking of 29 of 5 million players. It took 7 DAYS of mental & physical stamina & he crushed it!"
We've contacted Guinness, the self-proclaimed world records calculating organisation about this, and are waiting for its response. 4cabling has a banner on its webpage saying that the Kaya endeavour is a Guinness World Records attempt.
In case you were wondering, 4cabling employees are usually found doing work, but here it hosted the event.
"We don't usually encourage our team to play video games at work, but on this occasion, we were all too happy to set him up at work," it said. µ
