Baldur’s Gate, Some highly inventive strategies are in use. Baldur’s Gate 3 is just another example of how speedrunners constantly push the boundaries of the game they choose to play.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Player Beats Honor Mode In Incredible Record
The two primary categories in Baldur’s Gate 3 are Any% and Any% All Acts. The former is finishing the game as quickly and unrestrictedly as you can. This is achieved by triggering the game’s alternate ending in the second act, the one where Gale explodes himself, destroying the Netherbrain and everyone else.
The second requires you to advance through every act, which means you’ll need to play the game through to the end. Act 3 has some of the run’s more interesting tactics, making this route the more entertaining of the two.
Chronos holds the world record for any % All Acts and has been pushing himself even harder by completing these runs in Honor Mode. Chronos most recently took 22 minutes and 54 seconds to finish Baldur’s Gate 3 Honor Mode. Using a variety of unique tactics and tricks, he was able to pull off this accomplishment.
Make Sure to Run
The key to a successful Baldur’s Gate 3 speedrun is Enhance Leap, a spell that lets the user greatly increase their jumping distance. The majority of the course is hopping between maps; for the most adventurous jumps, Feather Fall may also be used.
The run starts with the customary sequence break when the boss fights on the Nautiloid and is immediately launched. Chronos then uses Shadowboxing, which is arguably the most well-known method of speedrunning Baldur’s Gate 3.
This technique includes shifting a container to an invalid portion of the map, resulting in a ‘node’ that will be used later. God’s favorite princess, Shadowheart, is then slaughtered and thrown into a crate. The box is set on fire and fired towards the new node, propelling Shadowheart into a new location and shattering upon impact.
Chronos then leaps through the Mountain Pass, allowing himself to be imprisoned in Moonrise Tower. When it comes time to confront Ketheric, the recently restored Shadowheart will once again be the run’s hero.
A multiclass Shadowheart becomes a bear and grows in size. She then defeated Ketheric and his altered state by repeatedly jumping on him. Who would have believed that the deity of death could be lowered so low? The deaths of the remaining two chosen are no less heinous.
Using the ‘Improvised Melee Weapon’ and careful avoidance of triggers, you can grab Gortash from his throne room and fling him off a bridge to his death.
That leaves Orin as the most insane of the three. By avoiding a cinematic trigger in the sewers with the Filigreed Feywild Bell, Orin will be trapped in the disguise of whoever she took from the player’s camp. In Chronos’ case, it was Yenna.
You can then enter the Temple of Bhaal via Misty. Stepping to a place past the door that is incorrectly available for clicking. From here, simply approach Yenna (Orin) and one-shot her to quickly conclude the boss fight.
After conquering the three Chosen, one just needs to go to the Morphic Pools to fight the Netherbrain. With some savvy leaping and the Invisibility spell, you may avoid most of the monsters in the last level.
Felogry defeats the Netherbrain with a tremendous fireworks explosion, effectively ending Baldur’s Gate 3 and saving the city. Chronos had a great run, and we’re confident he’ll improve on it in the following weeks.
