Enterprising gamer wants to be your virtual FPS bodyguard

5 gets you 30 minutes of in-game protection.

An entrepreneurial gamer is attempting to sell his services as a virtual bodyguard in various popular Xbox 360 FPS titles.

As posted on Fivesquids and spotted by OXM, Toby Smith's unlikely business proposal offers 30 minutes of his time in return for five of your precious English pounds, during which he'll have your back in either Call of Duty 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Halo Reach, Battlefield 1943 or Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

"I will be by your side the entire time and will fight for you, keeping enemies away from you, protecting you when you snipe, even SACRIFICING MY LIFE to save yours," explains his advertisement.

"This is 1/2 hour of GAME TIME, meaning time taken to join a game won't be included."
