The fastest Any% completion of Elden Ring (Bandai Namco, 2022) on the PC is 19 minutes 49 seconds by "FirstTwoWeeks" (USA) on 17 Sep 2022. The attempt was verified by Speedrun.com. FirstTwoWeeks made use of Elden Ring's infamous "Chainsaw Glitch", which uses a macro to turn a weapon into a wildly powerful "machine gun" that destroys bosses in seconds. The critically acclaimed action-RPG was helmed by videogame director Hidetaka Miyazaki, with best-selling Game of Thrones author George R R Martin contributing to world-building.
This category of Elden Ring speedrun bans the use of the "zip glitch", which is used in the "unrestricted Any%" category instead.
