T Ronix has managed to complete Fallout: New Vegas — and the game’s DLC — without taking a single hit, all the while playing on Very Hard difficulty.
The whole run took around six-and-a-half hours, and included some basic ground rules. T Ronix couldn’t:
- Take a hit from an enemy, whether it be melee or projectile.
- Take a direct damage hit from a trap (some environmental damage, such as from radiation, is unavoidable).
- Use a companion (except for when the game makes you use one).
Unavoidable cutscene hits don’t count, obviously.
You might remember T Ronix from doing pretty much the same thing with Fallout 4; he’s now working on completing a run where he finishes Fallout 3, New Vegas and 4 in one sitting, all without taking any damage.
Pretty funny that this has landed so soon after somebody beat Fallout: New Vegas without killing anyone.
There are self-imposed challenges, and then there’s gleeful masochism. This Fallout. New Vegas run looks like the latter.
