After more than 1,000 attempts, an Elden Ring streamer has beaten the game without taking a single hit and using a randomizer mod to change every enemy.
The achievement belongs to streamer LilAggy, who's been trying their darndest to beat Elden Ring with every enemy changed thanks to a randomizer mod, and has been going at it for around 11 months now. This could leave them facing dozens of Malenia's throughout the game, or, as the clip below shows, taking on an Erdtree Avatar instead of the Elden Beast as the final boss of the game.
