Streamer Beats Resident Evil 7 On Hardest Difficulty During Intense Knife-Only Speedrun

by Javy Gwaltney on Feb 06, 2017 at 02:41 PM

Speedruns aren't usually something I care about but even this one made my head spin a bit. YouTuber Quizzle has beaten Resident Evil 7 with only a knife on Madhouse difficulty, which is impressive enough on its own, until you see that he did it in less than four hours, which is just ridiculous.

By sake of comparison, it took me seven hours and the other editors who have played the game in the 7-10 range as well, on normal difficulty with weapons. HLTB (How Long To Beat) has most of the user-submitted times clocking in around 8-9 hours. You can watch the whole thing right here. Spoilers, of course.
