After almost six years of planning and practice, and after almost nine months of attempts, I’ve finally finished my no death single segment run through Halo: Combat Evolved, on Legendary skill. For those that may be unfamiliar with speedrunning or Halo, to sum this run up simply, I ran through the entire campaign, on the highest difficulty, in one sitting, and didn’t die once. Cody Miller was the first to do this in Halo 2, and for the longest time people have been asking about a no death run of Halo CE. Well, here it is! I’m very proud to have finished it, and to have the run clock under 2 hours is a huge milestone for me. Especially after the massive fail at the end of The Maw. That was brutal, but the recovery was nice!
Originally my route through the game was very safe, and over the years as I’ve gotten better at Halo, I’ve made hundreds of adjustments to this route, getting more and more aggressive. As such, this route is a lot more risky than you would think. There’s still a fair number of safe strategies used, but the combat and the tricks utilized should be very surprising and entertaining to watch. Enjoy!
I also have a commentary track for the run, for those that are interested!
