Speeding Bullet Deflected By Elder Scrolls Game

by on May 9, 2017

According to an anonymous witness (whose username on Reddit is “RabbitMix”), he was casually spending the evening at his computer desk playing Prey on his PC when he suddenly heard a loud popping noise, followed by the sound of shattering glass. Having no idea what had just happened, he searched around the room — and that was when he found the stray bullet, and the evidence of its destruction.

“I was at my desk playing Prey last night, [and] soon noticed the cloud of drywall dust in the air and a bullet hole to the left of my monitor. I started looking for where the bullet had ended up and my heart sunk as I saw this hole in my Elder Scrolls Anthology.”

The good news is that he’s lucky to be alive, since the heavy book/DVD case (which contained discs for The Elder Scrolls: Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim, as well as all their expansions) absorbed most of the impact and stopped the bullet from going further. Sucks for his game, though, which was a rare collector’s edition. The Reddit post has since gone viral, and Bethesda has offered to replace the busted copy with a new one.

If this isn’t an argument that physical media shouldn’t die, I don’t know what is.
