Legend Of Zelda series has a very interesting player base, and with Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild, players are challenging themselves with self-imposed tasks. Just recently, one player defeated two of the hardest bosses without taking any damage in Legend Of Zelda Breath Of the Wild.

Lynel is a centaur-like creature that rivals any Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild boss as the game’s hardest challenge. However, one player has managed to defeat two Lynels at the same time and without taking damage. Also, the player did not use any cheats to achieve it.

However, this is not the only example players completing self-imposed tasks, as one player completed a speedrun of the game in just 45 minutes. The player completed the game in record time through one newly discovered trick which is using the German language. Using the German language gets players out of the opening sequence much faster.
