YouTuber Tyrannicon has been trying to beat the bosses in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice by throwing money at them, literally giving the phrase “shut up and take my money” a whole new twist.
Now, as shallow, underhanded, and materialistic as this challenge may seem, it is by no means an easy feat. In the game, with the help of the Sen Throw prosthetic, players can throw all of that hard-earned moola and cause some mediocre financial damage. The prosthetic is generally suited for defence and isn’t for offensive gameplay – but trust that a stubborn gamer with a hell of a lot of time on their hands can change that.
For the sake of reference, it costs 1255 Sen to beat the boss Genichiro and 640 Sen to beat Lady Butterfly. One thing’s for sure, the wealthier you are in-game, the higher your chances are at success, kind of like real life. If you’d like to take on the challenge, I’d recommend you get the mod that removes the need for spirit emblems – without it, the challenge isn’t possible to complete.
What is it with gamers and painfully near impossible, self-inflicted challenges in video games anyway? Masochistic tendencies aside, if you can beat this challenge, you can do virtually anything. So the moral of the story today is that sometimes, money can solve all of your problems, even in a game as challenging as Sekiro.
