Competition: Win a Limited Call of Duty 5 Zippo

1 min read


I literally cannot explain exactly how jealous I am that I cannot enter this competition. Reason being that one of our readers is going to get to take home a limited Call of Duty: World at War Zippo, courtesy of Megarom.

Because the prize is so insanely cool, we have decided to make the competition a little interesting. For this competition we have devised an interesting, albeit unlikely scenario involving yourself, a zippo and a really angry Nazi.

The full competition question can be found after the jump. Not entering will be considered an absolute crime.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity.

Ok, here is how it works. We have a rather interesting scenario worked out and you need to tell us how you are going to get out of it. The best and most creative answer will be chosen as the winner, so be sure to get those creative juices flowing.

Here is the scenario:

You are a soldier in World War 2, you are stuck inside a destroyed house that has only one exit. Problem is, you have just run out of ammo and a crazed Nazi is about to bash through the door and introduce you to the business end of his rifle. The only thing that you have left in your possession is your trusty Zippo lighter.

How will you utilise your Zippo to survive this fatal predicament?

That’s it folks. Your answers can be smart, funny or even strangely detailed. Bring forth the inner Macguyver.

Mail your entry to comps@lazygamer.co.za by 5pm on Friday 21st with the subject COD Zippo and you could be the lucky winner of this incredibly cool Zippo.

[Please note that only residents of the SADC are eligible for the competition]

  1. histariously looking around for an escape, I chose the darkest corner of the house ,half of my face was hidden in shade ,and the other half shows in smokey sunlight.Just as the nazi sees me I begin to flip the zippo, open, closed, open, closed, recreating a sene from an old mafia movie.In my head I was assured that, “This sure as hell is gonna freak out this nazzi” as I Try to scare him off. Unfortunately ,as i’d realize soon enough ,Someone who works for a crazy guy with a mustache like that can not get scared any more than they already are. Pointing his gun at my face I knew there was only one thing left to do, one thing taht would save me.I quickly activated my V.A.T.S ,opened the zippo and targeted his head, I had a 95% chace of hitting, like always. The Zippo moved from my hand spinnig ferouciously at the nazzi who had started shooting as well ,but what he didnt know ,is that it was not a normal zippo, it was a call of duty zippo I won in a competition, in mid flight the zippo deflected the bullets re-aiming it at his legs ,hit his head and spilled fluid over zippo him.Unable to walk and totally high from the zippo fluid the nazzi lay there, like so many others ,killed ,by the call of duty

    Desperate times call for desperate measures…

    Using some of the debris inside the destroyed house, I built a semi-decent barricade in order to try and buy me some more time to formulate a plan.

    Having no more ammo I rummaged through my back-pack. As I was packing out the contents, my eye fell on a dented can of good-old army issue spam and beans. Almost all of my ex-platoon members (may they rest in pieces) were aware of the fact that I have a very bad flatulence problem. I would get nothing but complaints about the foul smells that would emanate from my orifice after lunch or supper. To a certain extent my lack of control over my bodily functions caused me much grief. I finally had an opportunity to turn one of my flaws into one of my greatest attributes. Using a broken brick that was lying scattered around, I opened up the can and began eating as fast as I could. In between mouthfuls I would take in an extra breath of air to help fill up my bowels. The crazed soldier was by now making good progress in overcoming my feeble attempt at a barricade.

    He was almost through when the familiar rumbling sound began coursing through my body. “Not yet” I told my self. “Let it simmer a little while longer”. The rumbling was getting stronger with each pound on the door. “He’s almost through” I thought to myself. I pulled down my trousers and readied myself at the entrance/exit. At the same time I whipped out my trusty Zippo. I flicked open the lid and lit it a few times just to get the lighter ready for action. My body was ready to explode but I had to contain myself. My life literally depended on this.

    The barricade came crashing down and the Nazi came storming in. For a brief second his war-face turned into a somewhat curious expression when he saw me bending over with my pants around my ankles. My window of opportunity had opened there and then. I lit my Zippo and with all my might I let out the biggest fart of my life. The fireball that was created engulfed the soldier’s entire body from head to toe in an inferno of hellish proportions. For the next few seconds all I could hear was the screams of one unlucky Nazi as he fell to the ground writhing in agony. A few moments later the flames died down. He was now dead.

    After pulling up my pants I gathered my stuff and began heading for the door. As I neared the door, I could smell the faint whiff of spam and beans amidst the charred flesh of this unlucky Nazi soldier. As I kicked pass his hand I noticed something shiny lying on the floor. It was my Zippo. Through my ordeal I had accidentally dropped it on the floor. I picked it up. Dusted it off. Gave it a small kiss and put it back in my pocket. I then made my way to the exit. My Zippo had saved my life.
