      curious hunter run play the game sticking to every new piece of equipment you find ( for exsmple if you find a new weapon while exploring you have to instantly switch to that weapon and stick to it, untill you find another weapon or complete the game, the same goes for armour and items) and purchasing items allowed.

          No HUD run? Play the entire game without having active knowledge of blood vials, quicksilver bullets, health or stamina, and no way of knowing the enemy's health. Surely it's possible, but it can be hard to tell when you need to use blood vials or how far into a boss fight you are. Could be fun.

            Just something I thought up for fun ^_^ Use only the Cainhurst Knight armor, the plank shield and Ludwig's Holy Blade for the whole game. It shouldn't prove to be too challenging but could serve as a fun little starting point to help get used to item limitations in other runs.

                True waste of skin run05 Jul 2016 14:47  

                No lvl up of course, no weapon upgrades (results in no gems), no buff papers, no pellets, no flamethrowers and no molotovs. Just this: choose a weapon from start and a gun. Parries acceptable.

                  Knowledge of a madman run05 Jul 2016 14:47  

                  Start a new game offline. After beating Cleric beast and father Gascoigne, accumulate 15 insight before beating the blood starved beast and the remaining bosses. Complete the game (including DLC, excluding Chalice Dungeon) with a maximum of 15 vitality and a maximum of 80 blood level. Any knowledge of a madman must be consumed immediately unless your insight is 90. Any insight accumulated must not be used for purchasing items unless you have enough knowledge of a madman to accumulate 90 insight after purchases. Avoid losing insight from enemies.

                      No primary05 Jul 2016 14:47  

                      Just finished a run with no primary weapon. Took it a step further and killed all the optional bosses for *****s and giggles. Ebertias is surprisingly easy to kill with the flamethrower.

                        VA only?05 Jul 2016 14:47  

                        Is it possible to do a visceral attack only speed run? Say, with only a pistol in the left hand and bare-handed for the right, where almost all damage comes from VA?

                            A true Belmont run.05 Jul 2016 14:47  

                            This is essentially a run with only the use of the cane whip with nothing in your left hand and only using items such as the throwing knives, molotoves, rocks and such. If you really want to change the feel of the game I highly recommend you try this.
