Someone Beat Dark Souls III Without Taking a Single Hit, Using No Shield and No Ranged Combat


Dark Souls is notorious for its harsh difficulty, but that hasn’t stopped the most extreme players from running head-on into challenge before. Just last February, one player beat the first game in the series without taking any damage, a feat which its Director couldn’t even believe. But now someone has accomplished something similar in Dark Souls III.

Faraaz Khan took on
Dark Souls III with several self-imposed limitations, including no shield and no ranged combat. His goal was to beat the game without taking a single hit, which he accomplished in two hours and 27 minutes, leading to some of the most clever combat techniques you’ll see in the series. To make his way past various enemies, he’ll run or sneak by, throw an Alluring Skull to distract them, and of course dodge and roll to avoid damage.

Another challenge Khan says he might face in the future is a run where he takes down every single boss in the game without taking any damage.

If you’d like to see his impressive feat, be sure to check out the full run, embedded below. You can also
follow him on Twitch to stay up-to-date with his accomplishments in Dark Souls and any other games he may try to master in the future.

Our Verdict


Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
