The event was held at a 30-acre sports park just south of Los Angeles. Participants included some of the top global YouTube stars. MrBeast, a popular content creator in his own right, came up with the idea. The YouTubers formed 12 teams of three. There were two games played, with the trio of Jaiden Animations, AnthonyPadilla, and TheOdd1sOut winning game one and Typical Gamer, Preston, and UnspeakableGaming winning game two. Each three-man team won a $100,000 prize.
The invite-only competition took place on the fields of the Hollywood Sports Park, billed as the No. 1 paintball and airsoft park in the world. The official video of MrBeast’s 2019 Apex Legends Battle Royale event was released on March 12. In just 12 hours, the video has been viewed almost 7 million times. The $200,000 YouTuber Airsoft Battle Royale video is available here.
Apex Legends is a free-to-play video game where up to 60+ other gaming competitors are dropped onto a grid and fight one another to the last man standing. The free-to-play game is becoming a serious competitor to Fortnite, with over 25 million downloads in the first week of its release last month.
“As a YouTuber, I’ve talked with so many great creators on the platform but getting together in person is challenging due to our dispersed locations,” said MrBeast. “This is how the Battle Royale idea started – a brainstorming session on a way to interact in person with some of the platform’s greats. Additionally, my subscribers receive an awesome video, thus allowing them to be part of the experience. Also, special thanks to Reed Duchscher, my team and the Night Media team for pulling this off in under three weeks.”
