An Apex Legends player was seemingly nearly shot in real life while playing the game recently.

The apparent near-death experience was reported by sneakerhead content creator, "hard stuck Diamond" Apex Legends player and Georgia resident YTMikeCheck. He shared his experience, complete with photos showing the aftermath of the stray bullet's travel path, on his Twitter account Thursday.

Thankfully, it appears no one was injured in the incident.

"A stray shot from someone yesterday almost hit my head while I was playing apex," YTMikeCheck tweeted Thursday morning. "At most missed me by 3 inches and hit my left monitor. Wtf is life."

In the thread, the photos appear to show that the bullet went straight through their wall, monitor and acoustic panels before exiting out of another wall.

As is the nature of the internet, it appears YTMikeCheck received several replies claiming that they made the whole thing up and shot their own setup for clout.

After posting photos of the entry holes and explaining the costs of the things they need to repair, YTMikeCheck tweeted that they're still trying to process the situation, let alone set up any sort of GoFundMe.

"I want to move. I’m still processing it all. I didn’t do a go fund me because I never thought this would go viral and I don’t like the idea of taking sympathy money from people," he wrote. "I wasn’t gunna even post til a friend said to. I love my set up. Would never do this to myself…"

"I told myself this whole time that I’m fine. I’m happy and grateful I’m still here. But it’s crazy how the feelings and emotions from trauma kick in days later. Not feeling safe in your own home is something I don’t wish on anyone."
