Dark Souls 3 Player Beats Game Without A Single Roll

An exceptionally talented Dark Souls 3 player has beaten the entire game without using a single roll. Which is far easier said than done.

The player in question is YouTuber Tye Taylor and he managed to not perform a single roll throughout his entire playthrough. As any Soulsborne player will know, it’s pretty much second nature to hit that roll button to evade enemy attacks. Heck, most of us will hit the roll button at the sight of a single vase.

As reported by TheGamer, subscribers of Tye Taylor have seemingly been asking for a no-roll playthrough for quite some time, and now he’s delivered on that request.

You guys actually thought this was gonna be hard, didn’t you?” Said Taylor following the results of a community poll. “You guys could have made me beat Demon Souls with my bare freaking fists, and you chose this instead.

As I mentioned earlier, rolling in the Soulsborne series is second nature and this is what Taylor highlighted when encountering the first boss fight. “The hardest part of [the first boss fight] wasn’t that I couldn’t roll, it was just fighting my natural instinct to want to roll.

I think Taylor deserves a round of applause!
