The Witcher 3's Olgierd Fight Is a Struggle In Bath Towel-Only Run

Fighting Olgierd von Everec in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is already quite challenging; he proved especially formidable for a player who tried beating New Game+ in a bath towel-only playthrough. Olgierd debuted in the 2015 release of The Witcher 3's Hearts of Stone DLC, which saw Geralt face off against all manner of otherworldly threats.

The action role-playing title sometimes requires players to dig deep into the White Wolf's bag of tricks, as potions, oils, and different bomb types come in handy more often than not. On Normal, the overall experience is pretty tame, barring a fair few trying boss fights, of course. But things can get grueling once New Game+ and harder difficulty settings such as Death March enter the mix. Equipping Geralt with the best possible gear and diligently upgrading it usually constitutes the ideal way of navigating The Witcher 3's higher-level sections. On occasion, though, players like to deliberately up the ante and ignore certain precautions.

Placing Geralt in a bathtub or bath towel is an instant way of attracting eyeballs. Is a bath towel the best way to navigate the dangers of The Witcher 3's open world, though? Reddit user bassdrums_and_bears tried it out for themselves and, evidently, made it pretty far. However, their Level 100 bath towel-only run in New Game+ came to a screeching halt once they reached Hearts of Stone's Olgierd von Everec fight. The battle against the master swordsman culminated in Geralt falling to Olgierd's blade a grand total of 34 times. Wanting to share Geralt's defeat with the world, bassdrums_and_bears uploaded a compilation video to Reddit. The Witcher 3's Olgierd Fight Is a Struggle In Bath Towel-Only Run

Geralt wears the bath towel well, but it's clearly not the clothing item to don while taking on someone of Olgierd's skill. And by the looks of his many deaths in the video, not even Geralt's magical Signs were of much help at effectively blocking incoming blows.

The bath towel is somewhat unique in that Geralt only has access to it a couple of times in The Witcher 3. One such instance occurs when he visits Dijkstra at a bathhouse in the Get Junior quest line. On both occasions, the towel is wiped from the player's inventory when no longer in use. Yet, the franchise's Wiki page notes that users can keep the item by simply dropping the towel before its automatic removal.
