Jailed Megaupload King is Still the World No. 1 in Modern Warfare 3

Kim Dotcom is the Internet playboy who made his zillions by founding the now-defunct (and Anonymous cause celebre du jour) Megaupload, and also from the blatant hosting of pirated content there. But he also led a secret life, did you know? He is the deadliest shooter in all of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Really.


Though Modern Warfare 3 was one of 2011's most pirated games—despite being available for about 45 days of the year—Mr. Dotcom at least acquired a legitimate version of the game, otherwise he would have been unable to play online and rack up more than 150,000 kills, in gaming sessions stretching six hours on end, as shown in this video dated Dec. 31.


I just checked the Xbox 360 leaderboards and MEGARACER, Dotcom's gamertag, still is in first place overall with 180,980 kills all time, good for a score of 9.05 million. Further, he's still No. 1 on the weekly leaderboard with 29,129 kills, despite being arrested on Thursday in the safe room of his New Zealand mansion. His kill-to-death ratio is 2.1 lifetime and, needless to say, he's level 80.

Of course, this man also made his fortune in a patently dishonest way, so, judge the authenticity of this performance for yourself.
