Teenage girl teaches pwning

6:05 PM on 12.28.2006 // Faith

It's hard to believe that a 15-year-old girl plays Halo, let alone the fact that she could teach you how to pwn. Bonnie "Xena" Burton, a member of the PMS Clan, has traded babysitting jobs for teaching new gamers how to rule on Halo 2 and she has a lot of skills to pass on.

Xena joined the other underage-looking gaming teachers at Gaming Lessons.com -- which teaches gaming to celebs like NBA players Luke Walton and Richard Jefferson, and rappers Lil Dru and Moka Blast. When she isn't teaching, Xena also plays in tournaments with her fellow PMS clan girls.

Xena must love her job for all the male gamers that not only hate the fact they're getting tips from a 15 year old, but a 15-year-old girl at that. How high is the humiliation factor of getting humped in-game by a teenage girl?

James Lee, a writer for Wired.com, recently played this amazing gamer online and this is some of what he had to say:

Fifteen minutes ago, I thought I was good at video games. I spent an entire summer in college playing Halo like it was my job. But right now, my opponent is blasting me to shreds again and again, knocking me and my big rocket launcher to oblivion with a peashooter -- and a snicker. Bonnie "Xena" Burton, a 15-year-old professional gamer, is whupping my ass online at Microsoft's Xbox Live site.

Bonnie was an early member of the PMS Clan, an all-girl gaming club of more than 250 members. Their motto: "We may have boobs, but that doesn't make us nØØbs." I glance at the scoreboard and feel sorry for any gamer who takes her on without taking her seriously. Our current score: 25 to -2. Translation: She's killed me 25 times, and I've landed on my own grenade twice. When I look back at the main screen, I'm dead again.
