Call of Duty: Warzone can now add being a game featured in the Guinness Book of World Record to its list of accolades, as Grant Taylor has broken the longest videogame marathon playing a battle-royale game, playing the title for upwards of 38 consecutive hours.

The feat, which was streamed partially through Grant's YouTube channel, Loot Before You Leap, was officially recognized by Guinness World Records on the 29th of January, with Taylor sharing the news via social media. 

"Last year, I attempted to set a @GWR (Guinness World Record) for the longest battle-royale marathon... I did it! 38 hours later and I'm the first person in history to set the record, using #Warzone as my game," Taylor wrote.

The marathon happened back in September of last year. Taylor's initial goal was to stream at least 36 hours, but he pushed it even further, finishing with an official time of 38 hours and 17 minutes.             

Making it into the Guinness World Records wasn't all that Taylor had in mind, as the entire stream was a charity event for SpecialEffect, an organization that aids those with disabilities to get into gaming.

Warzone players have been chasing the "most kills in a single-game" record for a while and can now set their sights on breaking Grant's extended battle-royale session. Hopefully, doing so for a great cause at the same time.
