As with most traditional RPGs, before stepping foot into the dark and foreboding streets of Yharnam, budding Bloodborne players will be asked to select and mould their protagonist from a selection of options, one of which includes the class type of your demon-slaying hunter. With a handful of selections available, the Waste of Skin class is undoubtedly the most difficult, leaving explorers with little to be proud of in terms of character stats. Imagine, then, not only beating the game using this class but not levelling up a single time.
Such a remarkable feat was achieved by YouTube user BOYvsVIDEOGAME, who posted a playlist of videos that documents his eye-catching playthrough. What makes this all the more impressive is the fact that, unlike the video that showcases one player completing the game in a record 44 minutes, he didn’t use any glitches or game exploits to do so. Instead, he was armed with only his wit and will.
Mind you, if you want to retain the magic of seeing a lot of Bloodborne‘s boss battles for yourself, we would advise against watching the video above, as BOYvsVIDEOGAME even showcases how to beat the game’s final boss without using the ever-handy gun.
Despite their defining difficulty curve, throughout the Souls series many users were lauded for their in-game feats, and it looks to be the case that From Software has another community hit on its hands with Bloodborne. The only question is, do you have what it takes to beat the game using the painstaking Waste of Skin archetype?
