A clever Dark Souls 3 player is trolling other gamers by dressing up as an NPC, invading their world, and crafting a clever trap along a bridge within the game.
Just like its two predecessors, Dark Souls 3 allows players to join in on other's games. As one would expect with online gamers, many of these players do so with malicious intent. Since Bandai Namco's latest title has smashed sales expectations, it means there's a rapidly rising number of players coming up with clever ways to troll their Dark Souls 3 brethren, and one individual player has come up with the downright best way to do it.
A Dark Souls 3 player named Fu0 has opted to invade the worlds of other players (you know, instead of being helpful), and has dressed his character like Unbreakable Patches, a troublesome hustler from the game. Instead of straight-up attacking enemy players, Fu0 would rest at the end of the bridge by the Catacombs of Carthus, waiting for his prey to draw near. As players went to cross the bridge, well... we'll let gamers look for themselves in the video below:
The character named Unbreakable Patches bears a strong resemblance to a similar-sounding Demon's Souls character named Patches – this was likely an intentional reference from Bandai Namco. In any event, Fu0's behavior is certainly in keeping with what players would expect from the tricky character.
While things evidently didn't end well for Fu0's victims, fans of Dark Souls 3 can find out how to get the the best ending for themselves here. Of course, that's assuming most players can defeat the first boss. There's no doubt that Dark Souls 3 is one of the most difficult games on the market, but part of that is what makes the title so magical.
The game is the final part to the Dark Souls trilogy, and Bandai Namco has done a great job concluding the intellectual property (read our review here). The game adds plenty of new twists to the tried-and-true combat system, though it remains a tough option for those who may not be up to the challenges presented in the infamously-difficult title. Of course, the fact that gamers can come into someone else's game and troll them may not be something that will encourage everyone to pick up a copy of the game.
