Paralyzed Apex Legends Streamer Reaches Diamond Using Only His Mouth
In the Apex Legends community, reaching Diamond tier in rank is the standard for being considered "good" at the Battle Royale game. Despite being only the third-highest rank in Apex Legends, it's pretty tough to achieve in the already intense game. However, there was something significant about one content creator reaching this milestone recently - doing it with no hands.
Paralyzed Luminosity streamer Rocky ‘RockyNoHands’ Stoutenburgh has managed to reach Diamond rank in Apex Legends using his mouth only. On March 17, the streamer took to Twitter to reveal that he had finally hit the Diamond III rank.
Playing Apex Legends competitively with your mouth may sound extremely difficult, and that's because it is. Using a quadstick controller, which allows RockyNoHands to control all input for the game using his mouth, took hours of practice almost every day for years, but the streamer stayed consistent, amassing a large fanbase along the way.
Rocky became a quadriplegic after an accident back in 2006 and was left paralyzed from the neck down. Although certain activities became impossible, Rocky quickly realized he had a talent for gaming and began honing his skills.
After years of experience and countless hours of practice, Rocky has mastered playing games using only his mouth and even holds two world records.
With Master and even Predator in his sights, we’ll have to keep an eye on RockyNoHands' stream to see if he can continue to progress up the ladder and reach the ultimate Predator rank.
