Resident Evil 7 Speedrunner Beats the Game on Madhouse Difficulty with Only a Knife

A Speedy Family Reunion…

Resident Evil 7 is terrifying enough without any more imposed constraints… but naturally, that is not the nature of the speedrunner.

How does running through the game on the hardest difficulty without dying sound? Oh yeah, and you have no ranged weapons. In fact, all you have is a knife.

As you can see in the video above, a brave soul who goes by the name of Quizzle was up for the challenge, and he managed to complete the run in under three hours. Whilst the concept of it is already fascinating, it’s a great watch from start to finish, and shows you all of the tricks of the speedrunning trade.

There are some extremely tenuous moments, and his ability to escape almost certain death is something to behold. It gets even better when you consider the fact that on this certain difficulty the family patriarch Jack is actually faster than the main character, and that your saving is restricted and items like bullets are much harder to find. This just goes to show how much of a momentous achievement this particular speedrun is. Well done, Quizzle!
