After a month of Elden Ring speedruns that sees players zipping in and out of locations to beat the game in record time, one player has managed to beat the game with no-hit/no damage, seemingly the first to do so.
A Twitch streamer by the name of Seki has completed a very impressive feat over the weekend, finishing Elden Ring with a no-hit/no damage run. Essentially, what this means is that Seki finished the game taking zero damage from enemies and from other environmental hazards.
Speaking to Kotaku, Seki explains that “No-Hit/No Damage is harder than a regular no-hit run as the player cannot take [any] environmental damage such as fall damage/poison etc. This adds difficulty to the run as I don’t have access to buffs such as Red-Feathered Branchsword which could potentially increase my damage output if I had low health.”
An earlier run by GinoMachino was a no-hit run too, but this is different due to the fact that the player must not take any environmental damage as well. Whatever the case may be, beating Elden Ring taking no damage is a feat to be celebrated.
Seki does use some glitches, especially when he faces Radagon towards the end, but that doesn’t make the run less impressive. His weapon of choice is the Moonveil Katana, which is highly considered to be one of the best weapons in the game.
Seki mentions that his next feat is an “All Remembrance” No-Hit run, another grueling test of patience and skill.
