1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Gang Banged", Way to Die #412, is the third death to be featured in "Today's Special: Death", which aired on August 1, 2011.


After a long day of whacking, Silvio and Big Tony liked to unwind with a little steam. Little do they know, Niccolo, the son of a black market booze dealer, is on a quest for revenge after Silvio shot his father in the head. With his gun in hand and hidden under a towel, Niccolo enters and waits for the right moment. Tony and Silvio seem to recognize him. When Silvio asks who he is, Niccolo reveals himself and prepares to fire, but slips on the seat causing him to slip and misfire the gun into a steam pipe. As Silvio and Big Tony run out in time, Niccolo falls in front of the leaking steam pipe, which sends steam heated to 350 °F (177 °C) onto him. The steam melts half of his face, and he dies within minutes if not seconds.

"My name is Niccolo. I believe you know my father!"
