The official Apex Legends Twitter account and Respawn employees acknowledged Timmy’s feat on social media. This is not the first time that Timmy has done a solo bronze-to-predator stream, but was his most successful one till date. Following his stream, Timmy was also trending on Twitter's Video games section.
He managed to get to Master in under 50 hours but he had to play additional games for several hours, to be a part of the top 750 players and achieve the rank of Apex Predator. His fans and Respawn asked him on social media to not do another 50+ hour stream for the sake of his health.
Timmy is known for his impressive feats in Apex Legends, with the player setting a damage record of 9,069 in a single match. While his record was broken in May 2021, Timmy achieved the feat solo without any teammates, compared to Japanese YouTuber, RakyThought pulling off over 10,000 damage in a three-stack. RakyThought acknowledged that Timmy is a better player and his feat deserves more recognition. While Timmy has tried to break the 10,000 damage record in the past, he has been unsuccessful so far.
Apex Legends is experiencing a surge in popularity with multiple Warzone streamers shifting to the game. Timmy’s latest stream definitely did its part to bolster the game’s growth on Twitch and give him more prominence in the Apex Legends community as one of the best players in the game.
