1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Drone Boned", Way to Die #370, is the seventh and final death to be featured in "Death Be a Lady Tonight", which aired on July 25, 2011.


Two terrorists fighting with guns hide in a building. Far away in Nevada, a worker at an army command center named Al, who is also a fellow pro video gamer, releases a drone by a video game joystick. The drone drops a missile that hits the building, and the two terrorists got caught in the resulting explosion and disintegrated instantly, reducing them to dust and ashes, sending them both to Hell. A man walks in and asks Al if he's ready for lunch.

"While the intended targets scramble around in the dirt, Al doesn't even break a sweat. Using satellites, high-speed computers, and the latest in cutting edge technology, all Al has to do is wait for the order... and press a button."
