Halo 2 was released in 2004 for the first console Xbox and it is, for many fans of the saga, one of the best titles of it. A youtuber is offering a succulent reward for playing this title again, with certain conditions.
Charlie “Cr1tikal” White is an active YouTube streamer and user who has challenged his followers and those who want to accept a challenge for 20 thousand dollars.
What do you have to do? Complete Halo 2 on max difficulty without dying. It sounds logical, but this Xbox title has the peculiarity that its most complicated mode makes the video game one almost impossible to pass without dying trying.
This level of difficulty, as the website of Gizmodo in his report, he was baptized as Legendary All Skulls Onbetter known as LASO for its acronym in English.
The Skulls or Skulls are a set of modifiers that can be applied if the gamer is passing Halo 2 at the Legendary level. Modifiers include giving enemies more health or reducing the ammo their clips have. Crazy.
The rules of the challenge: broadcast the game live, on Twitch or YouTube, play on Legendary difficulty with 13 active skulls but with the “Envy” one deactivated”.
This last rule originated after a gamer claimed to have achieved the challenge in the past, but used this Skull to replace Master Chief’s flashlight with the ability to turn invisible in a few seconds.
Initially, Cr1itikal offered $5,000, but gradually increased the prize to offer $20,000, since the challenge is, from their perspective, “the most difficult challenge that currently exists in the gaming world”.
To get an idea of the magnitude of this mission, after 18 years of Halo 2’s release, no player in the entire world could finish it in LASO mode without dying.
The youtuber claimed that 99 percent of the players who tried it in the last three weeks were not able to pass the first videl of the title, and most, including himself, could not make it through the first couple of levels.
