Of all the weird and quirky moments that PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS players experience, there are some that can scare one to the core. Getting scared by suddenly getting sprayed is one thing, getting scared by a clown is another.
U/ClappinCheeks120 was looting all by themselves after securing an easy kill with a teammate when they "nearly had a heart attack." After picking up an M416 and casually reloading looking off the side of the building, all of the sudden a player runs at u/ClappinCheeks120 with a scythe.
At second glance however, it isn't just any normal player, it is a player dressed as a clown with a scythe. U/ClappinCheeks120 easily dispatches the clown as the clown only had a scythe but perhaps if they turned around five seconds later, it may have been too late.
If there are any lessons to take from this experience, it is to always watch your back and maybe check corners or behind doors, just in case a clown is waiting for you.
