A paralyzed player from China passed the Elden Ring – he controlled the character’s breathing through the tubes

Due to the injury, the former firefighter lost the ability to move his limbs, but continues to play.

After numerous attempts, Zhu defeats the Tree Guardian

Chinese streamer Zhu Mingjun, who can only move his head and slightly his torso, completed the Elden Ring live on Bilibili. It took him about three weeks to defeat all the bosses. He dealt with most of the enemies himself, asking his brother to help only a few opponents. In this case, the final boss Zhu killed alone.

Because the streamer is paralyzed, it plays using a special system with multiple tubes. The actions in the game are performed when Zhu blows into one of them, as well as when the controller moves to the side. A fan of FromSoftware games showed in detail the configuration process of the utility for your system on the stream.

After setting up, Zhu got used to driving for several hours. However, it didn’t take long, because he used to play Dark Souls games, which he really likes. During the streamer, the spectators actively helped, suggesting the optimal equipment. Interestingly, the player repeatedly refused to accept advice because he wanted to figure it out himself.

Like many other players, Zhu immediately tried to kill the Tree Guard from the first location. After several dozen attempts, he still managed to do it.

How much time the player spent on the passage is unknown. Judging by the latest videos on his channel, he finished the game by completing the chain of tasks of the witch Ranni. During the passage, he defeated, among other things, Malania, Michella’s Blade, which is considered one of the most difficult action RPG bosses.

In 2013, while working as a firefighter, Zhu Mingjun was seriously injured in an accident at work. He could not speak for three years after the incident. Even after almost ten years, he still needs a ventilator to breathe. Zhu has been battling mental disorders for many years, including trying to commit suicide.

In 2018, he began to hold back on Bilibili. In an interview, he admitted that he was very worried at first, but when he saw how he was supported by strangers, he began to behave more relaxed and found many friends. Moreover, Zhu began to help others struggling with mental illness.
