A Twitch streamer recently made Elden Ring history after successfully defeating every boss in the game without getting hit a single time over the course of the entire run. After months of planning and effort, the Elden Ring streamer claimed victory at the end of a nearly 9-hour long stream.


FromSoftware’s boss fights have earned a reputation for their unforgiving difficulty, and the satisfying process of failing, improving, and finally beating each of them is one of the key reasons why games like Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Elden Ring have attracted so many players. While the encounters in FromSoftware’s games are difficult by design, practice and determination will see most players through to the end. Once players have mastered these games, it’s common to try pushing the game even further by imposing difficult restrictions such as never leveling up, not wearing any equipment, or not using healing items. One of the most punishing ways to approach a souls-like game is to strive for the elusive no-hit run.

Twitch streamer GinoMachino vowed back in March that he would complete Elden Ring while taking no hits, and after 7 months, he has followed through on his promise. His no-hit run ended after a 9-hour stream with the final boss of the run being the Soldier of Godrick, interestingly the first optional boss that players encounter very early in the game. It’s important to note that this was a “true” no-hit run, meaning that GinoMachino must restart his run from the very beginning if he takes damage at any point. Many players opt for a more forgiving variant of the no-hit run where they instead retry bosses until defeating them without taking damage.

GinoMachino has also successfully undertaken other challenges, for example becoming the first person to beat Elden Ring with no weapons earlier this month. The no-weapons run took 58 hours to complete, although it’s unknown how many optional bosses were tackled along the way. Regardless, these are serious accomplishments for an Elden Ring player, and there are few challenges in gaming as rewarding as a successful FromSoftware challenge run.

Elden Ring, like its predecessors, is just as much about its players as it is about the characters in the game. Legendary Elden Ring players like Let Me Solo Her have taken on lives of their own, inspiring fan art, copycats, cosplays, and mods that add the player into the game as an NPC. As time goes on, it will be interesting to see what other incredible feats Elden Ring players achieve as they ramp up the difficulty.

Elden Ring is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
