Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a pretty challenging game, so imagine hearing the news that someone was able to beat its hardest difficulty without taking damage. That’s exactly what happened, as well-known speedrunner Hayate was able to do this incredible feat and has the footage to prove it.
Hayate challenged himself not to take any damage in a playthrough of Survivor. As if that wasn’t interesting enough, he also played the game on Jedi Grandmaster, the hardest difficulty in the game. It almost sounds too impossible to be true but the speedrunner was able to pull it off and it's impressive work.
While Star Wars Jedi: Survivor does give fans an advantage by keeping most of Cal’s abilities from the last game, the devs did make enemies harder as a result. Granted, the game doesn’t appear to be giving Elden Ring a run for its money in terms of difficulty, but it’s no walk in the park either.
Fans in the know are already familiar with Hayate’s work in the speedrunning community, as the player actually broke several records for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. That game also has its fair share of challenging bosses, so it looks like this gamer will be making this series one of his signatures.
Even more amazing is how Hayate was able to do this on the PC version of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Although some patches have been released, this game was a buggy mess at launch and is still giving players problems to this day. More updates will be released soon but that hasn’t stopped fans like Hayate from completing the game.
Those issues ended up being a non-factor in the overall success of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, as the sequel has sold incredibly well and received rave reviews. As long as players aren’t playing the PC version and don’t mind lowering the title to 30 FPS, they will have a pretty good experience.
