Gaming addict breaks world record for longest Call of Duty session

 A computer games fanatic battled his way to a new world record by playing ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’ – for more than five-and-a-half days.

Determined Okan Kaya, 28, played the hit game for a total of 135 hours and 50 minutes.

Okan, of Sydney, Australia, smashed the previous record for continuous gaming which stood at 120 hours and seven minutes.

He began his epic session on Tuesday and was allowed to take a ten minute break every hour and kept his energy up with sports drinks and light meals.

Okan, a sales manager for online retailer 4Cabling, said: ‘My hands were cramping up and I went through a lot of bandages. I even tried to ‘pad up’ my controller.’

Guinness allowed the breaks to be stored up and taken at once so Okan was able to sleep for several hours at a time.
