Death comes to all of us in Elden Ring. The booming “YOU DIED” game-over-screen imperative is a core part of the Souls genre. Wait to wake up at the final checkpoint and hit your head against the brick wall you’re fighting once more.
flat “Let her go solo”an Elden Ring player who has helped hundreds of players defeat the game’s toughest boss, died over 200 times trying to defeat Malenia for the first time. But what if I told you not to take a single hit from any of The Lands Between’s 165 bosses?
That’s exactly what GinoMachino did last week when the Twitch streamer was completed Elden Ring’s first all-boss, no-hit runNot only did GinoMachino beat every boss without a scratch, he accomplished it all in a ten and a half hour run. convulsionsIGN spoke to GinoMachino about the run, and the sigh of relief he breathed out when he defeated the final boss and closed the deal.
“Obviously there is a lot of relief,” says GinoMachino. “I was focused on the second half of the run, so I didn’t talk much for four or five hours. I was just trying to focus on the game and make sure I didn’t forget the little enemies or something.” In. So that’s such a relief. I had been working on running for quite some time before that too. So I’m really happy to have it off my shoulder.
Did it. Cleared the world’s first Elden Ring All Boss Snow Hit Run.

You wouldn’t believe me if I put as much time into this challenge as GinoMachino did. From the planning stage to an estimated 80-100 no-hit runs, months of build-up paid off last week.
The challenge was a true no-hitter. So if Gino Machino got hit once, he would have had to start the game all over again. It doesn’t matter if he hits for 1 hour or 5 hours for him. The run is immediately trashed along with the rest of the failed attempts. Sure to rack up 80 to 100 runs every few hours, he’s definitely one of GinoMachino’s biggest contributors to his 1200 hours recorded at the Elden Ring.
perfect running structure
GinoMachino told me that creating routes is one of the hardest parts of tackling a task like this. You want to fight the toughest bosses first in a challenge run, as they are most likely to get hit in hard fights. Why waste time plowing through easy bosses just to lose a run later?
Instead, once you’ve beaten the toughest fights in the game, leave the easy ones for later in the run (he said the three toughest bosses in Challenge Runs are Malenia, Godskin Duo, and Moog). GinoMachino says that despite this plan, he was immersed in something unplanned for over five hours, such as bosses behaving a bit strangely or taking too many steps into the boss arena. I say that there are certain things.
Planning your ideal path through the game world of Elden Ring not only takes into account routing the order of the best bosses, but also stops to level up items, weapons, and runes. It took at least two months to plan the golden path before GinoMachino actually started running. The plan was always in flux, but Gino Macino said, “But up until the moment I started running, I was changing things, improving some strategies and getting through the area.”

one of many honors
So when GinoMachino logged into Elden Ring on October 25th, he may have jumped into another forgotten and failed attempt. But that’s what characterizes these challenges his run and the Game of Souls in general. I don’t know when the next run will be. of Run. For Ginomachino, when the run passed the six-hour mark, he realized it was really happening.
All bosses, no-hit runs are another accolade to add to GinoMachino’s impressive resume of completed challenges.recent streamers Completed Elden Ring using only bare hands, some bosses took more than 5 hours per person. He also achieved various types of no-hitter his runs in his other FromSoftware games such as Dark Souls 2 and Dark Souls 3. Funny enough, GinoMachino said the FromSoftware formula didn’t suit him for a long time.
I’m the first to complete an Elden Ring with my bare hands.
It took me 58 hours in total, but I had a lot of fun doing it, so I’m a little upset that it’s over. Maybe in the future we can try more bosses like this 👀👀 pic.twitter.com/LMDmRfk4Xb

“I started my no-hit run five years ago with Dark Souls 3, and interestingly enough, I didn’t really like the game when I first played it, and I actually quit halfway through,” he said. He said. “But I saw a no-hit run on YouTube and thought, ‘Wow, this is crazy compared to me, like everyone else, fighting my first boss and dying hundreds of times…’ So when I actually tried it a little bit more, the game became fun, and I think I haven’t been able to put it down ever since.
And he shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. In the wake of a no-hitter run and a bare-handed run, GinoMachino has already gone beyond Sight of Grace and is working on a run against Elden in his ring. Once that is done, he also has his ultimate goal in mind.
“I don’t know if I can do that, but I think my end goal is to beat all the bosses no-hits, without leveling or upgrading weapons…and I’ve seen that in Dark Souls 3. Dark Souls 2…Elden Ring has too many bosses…it’s tough, but I think that’s kind of the end goal.
