FromSoftware

Streamer defeats all 165 Elden Ring bosses without taking a single hit in a 10-hour session

He had already passed From Software's game fighting only with his fists, and after this last achievement, he already has a bigger challenge in mind.

Of course, there are gifted players. We have seen it many times with From Software's tough games as an example, from those who walk around the Elden Ring like a prodigy fighting the fiercest bosses, to the incredible players who beat the difficulty peaks of Dark Souls with no apparent effort using a dance mat as a controller.

Elder Ring, who said fear

Twitch streamer GinoMachino is one of those top players. In a recent ten-and-a-half-hour continuous game streamed on his channel, he managed to beat no less than 165 Elden Ring bosses without taking a single hit. As you might expect, the level of concentration was at its highest. This is what he told IGN in an interview:

"I was really focused towards the back half of the run, so for like four to five hours I was kind of not really talking. I was just focused on the game, making sure I wasn't going to forget some little enemy or something like that. So it's a lot of relief. I had also been working on the run for quite some time before that. So it's really nice to get that run off my shoulders."

Of course, this comes out of nowhere. GinoMachino spent months preparing for this moment, and it didn't come out the first time either, but after about 100 attempts that added up to 1200 hours of experience with the game. Keep in mind that as soon as he took a hit he had to start all over again. What madness, eh? No wonder the joy he transmitted after finishing his game.

"I can't believe we did it... I came into today not confident at all, dude."

Planning is vital, and it seems that the streamer had it clear from the beginning. As the open world that is Elden Ring, it made sense to go for the hardest bosses first. This allowed him to avoid wasting time with secondary bosses if it turned out that he had to restart the game if he was hit by the hardest and most challenging ones (in his opinion, and you will probably agree, these peaks of difficulty would be in Malenia, the Godskin Duo and Mohg). Even so, he was not spared from a scare by some minor bosses and the game was already very advanced.

His tremendous ability to face the game had been demonstrated before. The guy had finished it not long ago fighting only with his fists. No less than five hours for each powerful boss. With the recent achievement, you'd think he'd finally say goodbye to the game, right? Not really.

"I don't know if I'll be able to do it, but I think my end goal would be to do all bosses, no-hit without leveling or upgrading any weapons… And I did runs like that in Dark Souls 3 and Dark Souls 2… Elden Ring's got so many bosses… That's gonna be a hard run. But I think that's kind of like my end goal. If I can do that, then I'll be pretty satisfied, I think."

Some people are made of different stuff.
