Twitch streamer JerValiN beats Halo 2 LASO without dying, making history

What you need to know

  • Twitch streamer and Halo 2 speedrunner JerValiN has managed to accomplish something that was once believed to be impossible: a deathless run of Halo 2 on Legendary difficulty, with all Skulls on (other than Envy, which gives players an advantage).
  • By successfully finishing this challenge, JerValiN has completed the $20,000 bounty issued by popular Twitch streamer MoistCr1TiKaL to beat Halo 2 LASO without dying.
  • The run took six hours, 29 minutes, and 44.17 seconds, and involved masterful and methodical gameplay and the incredibly skillful use of skips and glitches.

After weeks of grinding the Halo 2 campaign, Twitch streamer and Halo speedrunner JerValiN has finally managed to achieve something the internet once thought was impossible: a completed run of the game on Legendary difficulty with all Skulls on (except the Envy Skull, which provides Master Chief with an invisibility cloak) without any deaths. No other player has managed to achieve this feat, meaning that JerValiN has officially made gaming history.

The community-wide race to beat Halo 2 LASO without dying began when the popular Twitch streamer MoistCr1TiKaL issued a $5,000 bounty to complete the challenge in late June, which was then raised to $20,000 in July. After attempting the challenge dozens of times, JerValiN finally managed to finish it with expert knowledge of Halo 2’s campaign systems, clever use of glitches and skips, skillful and methodical play, and a touch of luck.
