Elden Ring – Someone Completed In Just 12 Minutes & 32 Seconds

Yesterday, YouTuber and speedrunner MitChriz beat Elden Ring in simply 12 minutes and 32 seconds, setting what seems to be a new record in the “any% unrestricted” speedrunning category for the game.

To pull this off, you probably already guessed that there were some shenanigans and trickery happening in the run. And you would be correct. MitChriz used an Elden Ring speedrunning trick known as “zipping” to basically teleport around the world. This saves a lot of time compared to running in every single place or even using your trusting, double-jumping horse.

Using this trick, MitChriz was easily able to bypass the Limgrave section of the game and then popped straight over to Liurnia, where they use a now accessible waygate to access a late-game area. Using the zipping trick, they then skip past all but one of the bosses and reach the final boss in record time. Using the zip trick they skip past that boss fight too and finish the game in under 13 minutes.

I remember last month when I thought beating Elden Ring in 37 minutes was fast.

What is Zipping in a Game?

Well, it’s a speedrunning technique that has become more popular recently among runners focused on setting new record times in the any% unrestricted category for Elden Ring. On this specific category, players aren’t required to get all the runes, complete all the steps or do anything else that is usually needed to progress through the game. The main goal in this speedrun is to just reach the end and get to the ending as fast as possible using any tricks or methods you can.

And before someone gets angry at MitChriz for using glitches or tricks to beat the game, remember that this is just one type of speedrun category that exists for Elden Ring and that other players are out there setting times for runs that involve beating every boss or never taking damage, etc.

Let’s wait for someone else to beat Elden Ring in under 10 minutes.
