An Elden Ring player has finished the entire game using only a torch. The player, who goes by the name BartSimBro on Reddit, took over a year to complete the challenge, facing challenges like the Fire Giant and Godskin Duo, which were particularly tough for this type of run.
In a video BartSimBro shared on Reddit, they can be seen taking on the final boss, Radagon of the Golden Order, with only a torch. The fight is long and difficult, but BartSimBro eventually emerges victorious.
This is not the first time an Elden Ring player has completed the game with a self-imposed challenge. Other players have beaten the game without leveling up, without dying, or using only a specific weapon or spell. These challenges are a testament to the game’s depth and replayability.
It is unclear what BartSimBro’s next challenge will be, but they have certainly set a high bar for other Elden Ring players. Only time will tell if anyone can top their achievement.
Here are some of the strategies BartSimBro used to complete the game with only a torch:
- They used the torch’s light to their advantage, using it to blind enemies and create openings for attacks.
- They focused on upgrading their stamina and health, as these would be the most important stats for a torch-only run.
- They used a variety of weapons and spells, even though they did not deal as much damage as a regular weapon would.
- They were patient and persistent, knowing that it would take a long time to complete the game with such a difficult challenge.
BartSimBro’s achievement is truly impressive, and it is a testament to their skill and determination. They have set a new standard for Elden Ring challenge runs, and it will be interesting to see if anyone can top their accomplishment.
