PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is enjoyed by millions of players, but not many of them get to taste the Chicken Dinner often, or ever.
Winning is satisfying in Battlegrounds, even if it was earned as a result an opponent’s silly mistake or some lucky circle placement. Nothing, though, demands more respect than watching a disabled player claim his Dinner.
RockyNoHands is a disabled Twitch streamer that recently got into PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Being the ultra-competitive game that it is, it’s hard to imagine anyone but good, fully-able players being decent at it.
But not RockyNoHands, who was dedicated enough to get better and eventually get the win. The 30 year-old streamer mentions in his bio that he’s been disabled for 11 years. He uses a special controller called QuadStick. This controller is operated with a player’s mouth, instead of hands.
It has pressure sensors that emulate traditional controller inputs when the player sips from and/or puff into it. There’s an analogue stick on the side that you can control by moving your face the same way you would a controller’s right stick with your thumb. Although it may sound complicated, RockyNoHands makes it look effortless.
The video above is captured from a recent stream where he managed to get the tasty Chicken Dinner. This is not his first, either, here’s a full round of him doing a great job surviving and only engaging when needs to – something all players of Battlegrounds can learn from.
This is obviously even more impressive when you consider the disadvantages he has to live with, but it’s also why it’s so heartwarming to see him surmount it and best others like a champ.
