A Twitch Streamer Played PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Using a Blender

And they got to the top ten multiple times!

Twitch has been no stranger for being home to weird game streams with impractical controllers over the years. Dark Souls, a game ubiquitous with difficulty, is one commonly played through all sorts of oddities and knick knacks, from Donkey Kong bongos to a Wii racing wheel. But a new game's joining the ranks: the Twitch sensation PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

New Zealand-based Twitch streamer Rudeism is tackling the Battlegrounds silly stream idea full force: by playing the game using an actual blender. A blender, likely Arduino powered, was shown on stream with wires taped all around it.

Rudeism's been known for his creative streams in the past, usually under the banner "Rude Plays Games Wrong. His streams vary from modding a microwave in order to play as Symmetra in Overwatch, to playing as Winston in Overwatch using only actual bananas. For the Blender-powered Battlegrounds, Rudeism streamed the game using the alternative way to play for well over two hours, lightly twisting and turning knobs all along the way. Eventually, though, he managed to get to the top three.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has showed no signs of slowing down since its surprise smash release on Steam Early Access a couple months ago. Recently, the game implemented a new hefty monthly update, which added a new gun and motorcycle physics to the game (where essentially, motorbike flips are possible now).
