Battlefield 2042 Player Snipes Enemies With The Weirdest Controller Ever

A gamer is only as good as their controller. You can be the best player in the world, but you're out of luck if your left analog stick is drifting and one of your triggers jams every time you apply even the smallest amount of pressure. This is the reason why gamers will pay a pretty penny for an upgraded controller that is both responsive and durable. But every now and then, gamers will purposefully use "unconventional" controllers, just to flex on 'em.

Last week, publishers EA gave players the opportunity to get a taste of what's to come with an open beta of the upcoming "Battlefield 2042". While players have definitely expressed concerns regarding the game's bugs (as noted by Ars Technica), the beta did little to quell the massive amount of hype behind it. Players have flocked to the beta, with some recording their biggest achievements — or wild occurrences — for public consumption.

Out of all the clips that have emerged from the beta period, none are perhaps more impressive (and hilarious) than a clip shared to TikTok by Twitch streamer DeanoBeano, who made an odd choice of controller for his exploits.

This Battlefield 2042 player sniped an enemy with a recorder

TikTok user xDeanoBeano recently posted a video on his page of him sniping an opponent from impossible range in "Battlefield 2042", using a recorder. In what could be considered one of the biggest gaming flexes of all time, Deano has somehow rigged up a recorder as a usable controller. 

In the clip, Deano uses different notes on the woodwind instrument to adjust the pitch of his aim, before using another note to take his shot. The first shot misses the target, but his second is on the money and eliminates the long-distance threat. In a rather tame reaction to such an accomplishment, Deano expresses some reserved excitement in reaction to his shot's effectiveness, ending the clip.

While this seems like a once-in-a-lifetime feat in regards to streaming greatness, this isn't the first time Deano has impressed onlookers with his use of unconventional controllers. As a matter of fact, this seems to be recurring theme for him, with previous exploits — such as using an electronic drum kit in "Call of Duty: Warzone" — also garnering massive attention on social media.

That's right. While most gamers struggle to adapt to games using a conventional controller, in comes people like Deano who are so good, they're out here getting kills with musical instruments.
