The latest world record for Half-Life 2 has been claimed by Twitch streamer Chili_N_Such, beating the game in one hour, 13 minutes and 32 seconds.
This time beats the previous world record by five seconds, though there is still room for improvement that could make the streamer’s time even more impressive. This could be something that other players could indeed take advantage on, as Chili stated that with better execution that players could beat the game in one hour and 12 minutes.
Chili is well known for performing speedruns for Half-Life games, and already holds the world record for Half-Life 2: Episode One. This latest achievement however is his first recorded world record in a main Half-Life game in the space of just over a year. Given his knowledge of how he could improve on his time, then he could be well on course to break the record once again. He lost a lot of time on Highway 17, and only beat the previous time by a mere five seconds in this latest run.
Sure, there were areas that could be improved upon, but overall it was a very strong run from start to finish, and should be highly commended for achieving such heights of a brand new world record.
