Watch an Xbox One get blown up by both a .50 cal bullet and det cord

Earlier this month, Richard Ryan of the RatedRR YouTube channel decided to destroy a new PlayStation 4 with a .50 cal rifle. So naturally when he got his hands on Microsoft's Xbox One he had to see how it would hold up against a high caliber bullet and film the process.

However, to his credit, he didn't just shoot the Xbox One. His latest video shows how Ryan decided to make it a "drag race" between firing at the console while also using detonation cord. He wanted to see which method reached the Xbox One first.

The video goes over how he set up his drag race so that the det cord could be ignited just as the bullet reaches the Xbox One. He ended up having 16 feet of det cord and then set it up so that when the bullet reaches the cord ignition target, it lights it up so that it reaches the Xbox One at around the same time as the bullet enters the case.

Again, the final process is shown in super slow motion and it's really hard to figure out if the bullet or the det cord hit the Xbox One first. However, Ryan decided to take what was left of the console and blew it up completely with even more det cord designed in an "X" pattern. Nice touch.

Not objecting to any of this. But I do wanna know if this guy's just made out of money. That's $900 in destroyed consoles in under a month.

1 Xbox One down, another million to go (excluding all those failed ones with broken disc drives, of course).

Seriously though, cool video.

I have a friend that could have put that Xbox to better uses and I know that bullet could have been used to rid the world of some online trash.

having used det chord in the Army, he should have wrapped it around the Xboxone a few times. that would cut the machine in half and obliterate it

wow I am not sure why, but when I watched PS4 video I felt bad. But for some reason I just found this one amazing. Especially the X in the end.
P.S. I am Xbox fan.

Hello,

I didnt hear audio but did that bullet go thru and after the explosion it still (more or less) stayed intact??? I thought that was amazing!

So where are all of the people crying that this could have been given to less fortunate people like when the PS4 was blown up? I am a Xbox person but this is awesome lol.

I was just thinking the same thing. When they posted the PS4 being blown up everybody started bitching about how wasteful it was, but when the XBone gets owned they are totally silent.

Not at all, it was dumb before and it is dumb now IMO. Well I am not a fanboy though.....

Steven is a PS4 fan (he posted the thread). John posted this one.

Thats why

I may have read that title as "Watch an Xbox One AND get blown up by both a .50 cal bullet and det cord"...thought something was odd
