Rest In Peace BORG

Danijel Jagodic, more commonly known as Borg, took his life today.

Borg was world famous for his youtube videos, which were often humorous, clever and very affordable homemade modifications to paintball gear. Everything from how to make your own magazine and repair gear to headcam footage of various events. Borg's reputation and quality videos generated worldwide viewership and support. Eventually, these supporters even generated enough funds to fly Borg from his home in Croatia to the Living Legends events at CPX in Chicago, USA.

He was a dedicated paintball enthusiast and inventor. He will be missed.

Rest in Peace, Borg.

My prayers are with his family and friends.

Loved his videos and what he dedicated to the

I hate to be the one to ask how he committed suicide.

Borg was a huge inspiration to all of us at SPbTv and it's really sad to see that he saw no other choice to deal with things other than ending his life. He will be missed, and any information we find I'll update you guys.

Man what a tragedy. I wish he would have just reached out for help.

Heres his post from Facebook:

This is the end for me. I'm sorry, i can't live like this any more. I'm just not strong enough. I'm broke, my fiance left me. I apologize to all of my subscribers. Sorry guys, no new vids any more. I WAS BORG! Remember me.
