MoistCr1TiKaL Will Give $20k To The First Halo Player To Do This

"Halo" is one of the most beloved video game series of all time, but one "Halo" game stands above the rest for many: "Halo 2." Upon release in 2004, "Halo 2" exceeded expectations with its impressive graphics and gameplay. However, one of the biggest changes to "Halo 2" compared to the original "Halo" was its campaign difficulty. Anyone who has played "Halo 2" will tell you that the game is incredibly hard, and it even features gameplay modifiers players can turn on to make it even harder.


Now 18 years after the release of "Halo 2," YouTuber and Twitch streamer MoistCr1TiKal is putting a spotlight back on its challenging campaign. Specifically, the popular content creator is challenging gamers to pull off something that has never been done before in "Halo 2." Aside from bragging rights, MoistCr1TiKal said they would reward the first person who completes the challenge with a massive load of cash. Although the race has already begun, it may be a long while until someone claims the hefty reward.

Can you beat Halo 2 with these settings?

On July 16, MoistCr1TiKal announced that he would give away $20,000 to anyone that could complete what he calls "perhaps the hardest challenge that currently exists in all of gaming." The YouTuber issued the same challenge three weeks earlier with a much smaller bounty. However, he said he decided to increase the prize money upon seeing how much players struggled with it.


The challenge in question is beating "Halo 2" on Legendary difficulty solo, with 13 out of the 14 Skulls on without dying. For the unfamiliar, Skulls are gameplay modifiers that increase the game's difficulty. For example, one Skull makes enemies more observant, while another completely turns the player's HUD off. The only Skull excluded from this challenge is Envy, a Skull that gives Master Chief the power of invisibility.

MoistCr1TiKal noted that this feat has never been accomplished before and is nothing short of a near-impossible challenge. He added that in the weeks after announcing the first challenge, he checked out some streams and said, "99% of every single runner couldn't get past level 1," and even he underestimated the challenge.


MoistCr1TiKal also reiterated that anyone crazy enough to attempt the challenge must stream it on Twitch or YouTube to prove its authenticity. Anyone thinking of attempting the challenge should know that the clock is ticking, as MoistCr1TiKal has already shouted out two streamers who are making significant process on the challenge.
