Okan Kaya, a gaming addict, has set a new record for the longest marathon first-person shooter gaming session.

Kaya, of Sydney, Australia, took seven days to beat the previous record for continuous gaming, which stood at 120 hours 7 minutes. Kaya’s record was 135 hour 50 minutes.

Kaya played Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for the record, finishing it with a career ranking of 29 among 5 million players. He works as a sales manager for a computer cable company called 4Cabling. The company documented his progress on its website and its Facebook page.

“It took seven DAYS of mental and physical stamina & he crushed it!” wrote Kaya’s co-workers on the Facebook page.

He was allowed to take a ten-minute break every hour, eating light and drinking energy drinks.

“My hands were cramping up and I went through a lot of bandages. I even tried to ‘pad up’ my controller,”

There have been tragedies when gaming marathons go unsupervised. A Taiwanese man collapsed and died following a 40-hour Diablo 3 marathon at an Internet cafe. An American gamer suffered pulmonary embolism during his 20-hour Xbox session last year, Yahoo.com reported.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 sold eight million units on its launch day. The game holds a record for the most money generated in a day for entertainment release.

Kaya, however, said he is unlikely to try breaking a record any time soon.

“This is it for the moment,” he said.

“If I told the wife I had to go away for a week again and smash another record, she’d probably file for divorce.

“It was a lot of fun, but I’m glad it’s over,” he said, according to News.com.
