Fastest Dark Souls II speedrun (utilizing a glitch) clocks in at under an hour and a half.
Gamers who speedrun games, especially with a game as new as Dark Souls II, are constantly either breaking records or having theirs broken. That said, many other gamers still like to watch these runs, so we thought we’d share some runs with you.
Note: Spoilers ahead. Do not read past this point if you wish to avoid them.
First up we have a gamer going by the name of Noobest. He has managed to beat the game in a mere 1 hour, 21 minutes (game time). Of course he utilized a glitch that is only accessible in version 1.00 of the game which allows you to skip the Shrine of Water and a huge portion of the game entirely.
The fastest non-glitched run, according to Reddit user KantiDono, belongs to somebody named Mechzeoro. He managed to beat the game without using the aforementioned skip in 1 hour, 32 minutes (game time). You can see his run on his Twitch channel.
Finally we have Elajjaz, who decided to speed through the game while fighting every boss in it. He managed to complete the game in 2 hours, 46 minutes (game time), and you can watch his run on his channel.
How soon will these gamers have their records crushed?
