Elden Ring Speedrun ran through in less than seven minutes
Yesterday we reported on the productive SoulSborne Speedrunner, Distortion2 ‘, which has set up the Speedrun record from Elden Ring under ten minutes for the first time. We wondered how many days it would take until the 8: 56-run would be further reduced, and now yes, it did not take long. Distortion2 is back and has now posted a breathtaking any% unrestricted run from only 6:59. Yes, you read it right.
To achieve this remarkable time, Distortion2 led almost error-free 13 frame perfection glitches known as “zippers”. As the Speedrun Maestro of Elden Ring explains in a comment to the YouTube video embedded below, this error not only requires a precise timing, but also a perfect hardware setup to create the required FPS and frametimes for the job. Math also belongs to this.
“This zip-glitch allows us to teleport a variety of distances by blocking a combination, keeping and pressing w to move forward with a combination of 139 frames,” says Distortion2. “If the two actions add to 139, you teleport, and this distance may vary depending on the combination. The longer you w down, the further you come.
“I’m not even finished because we have made a new discovery, which is why we no longer have to fight against bosses. This is due to the Speedrunner “Seekertv”, known as “Megazip”. This is done by executing a normal zipper and pressing W to return to the initial zipper within a 12-14 frame window. This almost quads their momentum and brings them well. “
While neither we nor the runner itself understands what’s going on behind the scenes, which enables speedrunners to kill bosses without putting a finger on them, Distortion2 notes that the current theory turns that boss platforms Unload as soon as the runners are far enough away from them. This leads to the boss falls and dies.
However, there is a problem. Elden Ring has its own standard fall time limit for players set to 13 seconds. Normally, this means that Runner would die from the bosses, which would lead to a failed attempt. However, if you run an attack in the air, the timer is reset so that runners like Distortion2 have enough broadcasting time to outsource the bosses.
With the run you see in front of you, many more mechanics are involved, so please click through and see Distortion2s full summary of this Speedrunning Wunder. After the runner has now carried out at the 3-20 mark in the video in the video of himself as a “crazy-difficult” performance, Distortion2 depends in this category keyboard and mouse on the nail, “until new things are found” – that’s what it is said The description of the video. After we did that, what Distortion2 has done, we would honestly do the same.
