Bizzare news about players breaking the speedrun record of Elden Ring has been flooding in ever since the players got a good hold of the game. And this time is no different. Now a speedrunner has broken the Elden Ring record in under 9 minutes.
Distortion2 the YouTuber has slashed his time to only 8 minutes and 56 seconds by largely employing the Zip glitch, which lets players teleport between different regions of the map.
Since making the very first under-30 minute speedrun a month ago, Distortion2 has shaved minutes off his time day after day, thanks to various flaws that allow the majority of the game to be bypassed.
There are a variety of speedrun types available, including runs that do not take damage, runs that do not cause damage, and more comprehensive playtests in which players defeat all of Elden Ring’s key bosses.
Players will undoubtedly develop new techniques to play and hack Elden Ring for foreseeable future, culminating in even more absurd speedruns down the road, similar to Dark Souls and Bloodborne.
Players found a method to make the iconic boss Starscourge Radahn destroy himself just last week, for example, by enticing him to the water’s edge, where he splashes in and drowns.
A pair of fine underwear hidden in the game files and a Secret Wall that only opens after 50 hits are among Elden Ring’s other strange secrets revealed thus far.
Looking at how players have been successful in finding these different methods and breaking Elden Ring speedrun records, we can surely vouch that the unique world of Elden Ring sure has much more to offer.
Happy Gaming! 🙂
