A dedicated player of Dragon’s Dogma 2 achieved an impressive feat by completing an armorless, fists-only challenge run of the game in just one hour, 43 minutes, and 32 seconds. Infected Durian, the content creator, surprised the community with this remarkable achievement. It’s worth noting that the run was performed on a New Game Plus file, giving the player a significant character-level advantage. Despite this, the accomplishment is still very challenging.

As found first by GR, Infected Durian achieved a unique victory by relying solely on their character’s bare fists to deal damage without using any armor for an extra challenge. Their Pawns still had weapons and armor, offering some support during the journey.

The playthrough involved careful planning, including making precise strikes at the enemies’ vulnerable spots and skipping some battles to save time. This thoughtful strategy resulted in a surprisingly quick completion time. Below is a video if you want to watch it.

The armorless, fists-only approach reminds fans of a famous Elden Ring player known as “Let Me Solo Her,” who became well-known for embracing challenging gameplay. Despite Infected Durian’s impressive run, it’s important to note that there are faster ways to complete Dragon’s Dogma 2. Other speed runs, which may involve glitches and advanced techniques, have achieved even quicker times.

According to the speedrunning website Speedrun.com, a player named Damage_Glitch holds the current world record for a New Game Plus Any% run in Dragon’s Dogma 2, with a time of 50 minutes and 8 seconds. This achievement is particularly noteworthy, especially considering the recent release of the game.

Even though this isn’t the fastest time overall, it’s still impressive. This is a case where a player didn’t use any armor or weapons and still managed to beat the whole game. It helps those of us who can barely do it with overpowered weapons because these players find great strategies for bosses.
