Minecraft players are some of the most creative gamers out there, presumably because the game they play is all about creativity. We see magnificent creations on an almost daily basis and they even find creative ways to actually finish the game. One such example is Minecraft YouTuber SwitchBackMongo who recently shared their attempt at finishing the game on hardcore difficulty without killing anything, which is a lot tougher than it sounds.
First shared by PCGamesN, SwitchBackMongo's recently uploaded YouTube video details all the trials and challenges that players will have to overcome if they want to finish hardcore Minecraft as a pacifist. If you've never experienced Minecraft on hardcore difficulty before, it essentially locks the game to the Hard Mode difficulty setting and also stops players from respawning. Once you're dead, that's it.
Most Minecraft players will know that in order to actually finish the game you need to collect Blaze Rods. These rods are turned into powder which is used to make Eyes of Ender, but you can only obtain them by killing Blazes. SwitchBackMongo's rather humorous solution was to tame and breed an army of dogs to fight on their behalf, swarming the poor Blazes as they spawn.
The full video is packed with ingenious workarounds to gather the required ingredients to beat the game, with a couple of tense moments sprinkled throughout. There's also a bunch of other challenge runs attempted by SwitchBackMongo – including an attempt to earn every advancement in just 100 days – so make sure to check out their YouTube channel if you're interested in that kind of thing.
If you're more into the speedrunning side of Minecraft, we've got you covered there as well. A group of minecraft players recently set a new world record for the fastest co-op completion of the game, coming in at 1 minute and 56 seconds, around about the same amount of time it takes for me to pick out a place for my house to go. Speedrunners never cease to amaze.
