Meet the coolest guy at GamesCom:
One-handed “InhumaX” has mad Battlefield skills

Tag along as we meet the seriosuly skilled one-handed Battlefield 3 player “”InhumaX”. When we saw his video on Battlelog, we knew we had to fly him out to GamesCom to greet him.

– I can’t believe that I’m here. The same evening that I posted my gaming video on Battlelog, friend requests were popping up all the time, and the German Community Manager sent me an invite to GamesCom. I was like: ‘What is going on?!’

InhumaX is from Austria and made the trip to Cologne to hang out with DICE and play Battlefield 3: Armored Kill before it releases in September. After posting his gaming video on Battlelog showing how he plays one-handed, he has received a lot of new friends. Some just want to play, others are handicapped players who want to share their thoughts and tips on how to play with a disability.

"The only thing that's a bit difficult is sniping."

We step outside of the community lounge with InhumaX for a chat. He picks up a cigarette from the pouch at his kilt and lights up in a courtyard that is somehow eerily reminiscent of the plaza in Ziba Tower.

– I’ve been playing consoles with one hand ever since the Nintendo 8-bit era. That’s the easiest console to play since it only has two buttons and the D-pad. But I don’t have any problems with Battlefield 3. The only thing that’s a bit difficult is holding my breath when sniping by clicking down the stick. But I generally play any class.

Yes, yes. Never mind that. What’s up with the kilt? Yep, that’s a proper kilt he’s wearing, and totally pulling it off. He brought two of them to the show, the other one being in a blue/green pattern.

– A friend of mine bought a kilt. I thought it was cool, so I asked my girlfriend’s aunt — she makes clothes for a living — to create them for me.

If you’ve seen his video or his Battlelog stats, you know InhumaX has some serious skill. It’s great to meet a fan who has been an inspiration to other handicapped gamers. As we leave the courtyard for the bustle at the show floor, we think that we must have met one of the coolest guys at GamesCom right there.

    all respect to this man. imagheyman i don’t know if you’re being an ignorant Tw at for the fun of it but u can clearly see this guy has only the use of one hand, so either you’re retarded or just a bigot but lets see how good your stats are compared to this inspirational guy

  • imagheyman 08.23.12 at 14:57

    counts 2 hands? dice you retarded?

    • ZeroToy 08.23.12 at 16:10

      DICE meant one-handed at the fact that he can only use one hand to play. Not that he doesn’t have a two hands. -_-

  • imagheyman 08.23.12 at 14:53

    + console noob has aim assistance.. not playing one handed with built in cheats lol

    • BenXL 08.23.12 at 17:06

  • imagheyman 08.23.12 at 14:51

    i see 2 hands?

  • NICKRPG38 08.23.12 at 03:38

    you know the m18 claymore how a enemy walks over it you get a kill i LOVE it but could you make a detonator like with c4? could you make a detonator m18 claymore like in real life!!!!???? EXAMPLE if your playing close quarters you place a detonator m18 claymore at a flag you wait until the icon starts blinking CLICK BOOM you get a muti-kill so can you guys try to put this idea in the game and i will love DICE for ever!!!!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE its just my thinking so if you put it in the game make it have a GOOD radius and a GOODrange to thank you i LOVE YOUR GAME GO BF3 and GO DETONATOR CLAYMORE BY GO BF#!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • ReconRanger18B 08.23.12 at 13:37

      You must be 1 of those players that puts claymores down facing walls because you don’t see the front & read “Front Toward Enemy”.

    • EliteRifleman 08.28.12 at 19:17

      Well just use c4 then, duh…

  • MICHAELG213 08.21.12 at 08:17

  • XXXX__RICH__XXXX 08.20.12 at 19:04

    How do you do it, do you make a custom button/stick setup or just plays with the standard setup..?

  • swampdonk88 08.19.12 at 00:15

  • Steakman4 08.18.12 at 10:17

    You would be a lot cooler if you didn’t have that nasty cigarette hanging out of your mouth.

    • UnderToker 08.21.12 at 20:20

      Agreed in honesty

    • CrabWalkPileUp 08.22.12 at 19:59

      you’re reading this article and all you can think about is the bonus content drop? people are so self-centered these days. take a time to appreciate others and what they have to go through on a daily basis.

      • PingIsopure 08.20.12 at 09:39

    Kaappi_Jugent Did you even read the story? This guy is a bad ass, if you’re going to harass DICE do it somewhere else and let the people who are actually interested in the story enjoy it.

  • Kaappi_Jugent 08.17.12 at 18:48

    oh camon DICE, from e3 , you made lot more interesting news, now you are just intorducing some random people for us. btw, WHEN the premium vid and bonus content drop comes, i hope you reveal it at gamescom..

  • Eyepox 08.17.12 at 17:46

    InhumanX , you remind me of Team X-T.R.E.M.E – a group of ex-soldiers and citizens helping out handicapped military-men (mostly) to recover and prove that nothing can stop them – NOTHING!, to me you deserve the same respect, Well done and never stop amazing because you sir are an example that no matter how life set it course on you – you can still act normal and even better then many others! GG!

  • Snak3Doct0r 08.17.12 at 17:41

    Inspiring for sure!! Somebody needs to make this guy a custom controller!!

  • Revans310 08.17.12 at 17:10

  • PuppetMaster81 08.17.12 at 16:06

    Why do people just post “first” on comments pages. Who gives a shit? Post something relevant to the story or just don’t bother.

    • skyflyerone013 08.17.12 at 16:07

      indeed man, post something relevant or GTFO

    • Kaappi_Jugent 08.17.12 at 18:51

      Agree with you! those gamers should be banned for like month from FoRuMS…. so they would learn that forums are for feedback, NOT FOR SAYING TO EVERYTHING
