Season Episode of Death Cause of Death Remaining Players Other notes Last words
Minecraft #1 15 A single Enderman McJones, Dean, Barry, Jon While fighting the Enderman, he is seen switching from his diamond sword to his bow. Had he not done this, he may have been able to live.

The group had just decided to look for him seconds before his death.

I'm gonna die!
DayZ 1 Falls off a balcony while fleeing from a zombie Jon, Barry, Dean, Ross, Jared There's two- OH I FELL!

Diablo 2 12 Gets stuck and is swarmed by enemies McJones, Paul, Jirard While in the middle of the fight, PBG was locked in place due to the Zeal ability. Earlier in the series, PBG accidentally chose the Zeal ability when upgrading. I can't get out! I can't get out!
Minecraft #3 11 Burns to death after escaping lava Shane, Smooth McGroove While trying to build a base, he and McJones dig into lava. PBG escapes, but burns to his death. I have two hearts! A heart and a half, a heart- (McJones burns to death) oh and I'm gonna die, too!
MineZ 16 Falls off a balcony while fleeing from a zombie Jeff, Brutalmoose, Barry Austin was actually the last to die, but his death is shown fourth and his face is x'ed out while the other three remaining people are fighting the giant. This was done as he felt it would be anti-clamatic with the series ending by him fleeing from a zombie compared to fighting the giant.[citation needed]

The way Austin dies in MineZ is identical to the way he died in DayZ. Both feature him falling off platforms trying to escape zombies.

He hears me! He hears me! Okay, okay, he hears-
