Someone beat 12 Assassin’s Creed games without taking damage

By Kyle Campbell

Finishing only one of the immensely-long Assassin’s Creed games is an achievement for most, but a determined fan got through every mainline entry without taking damage.

As Kotaku reports, Hayete Bahadori set out on a rather curious journey last fall — he wanted to beat all 12 mainline entries in the Assassin’s Creed series under specific conditions. Firstly, the health bar couldn’t go below 100 percent, and this had to be done on the highest difficulty setting. If he failed either rule at any point, the run would be over, forcing Bahadori to restart the game. Sometimes the goalposts shifted slightly, but only because the earlier games didn’t have multiple difficultly modes (that option didn’t come along until Assassin’s Creed Origins).

“Coming off of two major No Damage challenges in other [franchises], I was trying to figure out what I wanted to tackle next for my stream,” Bahadori said on Reddit. “At that time, I was casually working my way through [Assassin’s Creed Odyssey] and had a thought. How cool would it be to get through Odyssey without taking any damage! Would it even be possible? After some trial and error, I realized it was possible and started creating strategies and routing out the game off-stream.”

Bahadori’s challenge began on October 16, 2021, with the original Assassin’s Creed and concluded on April 3, 2022. Yes, he even beat the monstrously long Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. There is video proof of the whole shebang as well, which is available on Bahadori’s YouTube channel.

Given how many random elements are in any Assassin’s Creed title, it took many attempts for Bahadori to nail everything. Roughly 100 hours of playtime per series entry, according to Bahadori’s estimations. However, Valhalla took well over 800 hours of practice. Talk about dedication to your craft.
