After a long wait that seemed endless, fans were finally able to enjoy the campaign of Halo Infinite and explore all the secrets hidden in the new Master Chief adventure. As expected, the speedrunning community got down to work to discover the best routes and strategies to finish the title as quickly as possible.
Previously we saw how some players managed to complete the shooter’s campaign in less than an hour. While that’s an impressive achievement when you consider that the duration of the adventure ranges from 10 hours, there was clearly still room for improvement. So one highly skilled fan put the bar to another level when he saw the final credits in record time.

Specifically, the user SasquatchSensei surprised locals and strangers when he finished Halo Infinite in 29 minutes and 49 seconds, which beats the previous record of 30 minutes and 31 seconds that belonged to the Cryphon player. As we can see, the distance between the times is miniscule, which shows that, in the world of speedrun, any mistake can make a difference.
This is how this new Halo Infinite record was achieved
Gamer SasquatchSensei shared the race on his YouTube channel, so we can analyze the routes and strategies he followed to consummate his record.
It stands out that the user knew how to take advantage of the retractable hook to cover great distances quickly and, in the same way, avoid the enemy forces that prowl the open world of Halo Infinite. He also decided to make a few saves to get the Spartan Cores, which allowed him to improve his hook.
SasquatchSensei took advantage of a series of glitches in the game to speed up his pace and skip entire sections of the campaign. Naturally, this allowed him to get to the final stages of the adventure much faster than normal. Of course, it is important to note that the speedrunner completed the game on the easiest difficulty, but that does not detract from his feat.
But tell us, do you think you could break this fan’s record? Let us read you in the comments.
