Challenge Scot End of Year Announcement

Hello everybody! This is just a wee announcement to let you know that Challenge Scot is going on a little hiatus until January. I work a full-time job and make these videos in my free time, but as we race towards Christmas and New Year's I'm finding myself with less free time and even less energy.   more

Crowbar in Half-Life 2: Lost Coast - Challenge Scot

This week's challenge takes place in Half Life 2: Lost Coast, in which I must beat the entire level using nothing but the famous crowbar. Freeman is pretty proficient in crowbar combat, but there are some enemies that even the mighty crowbar cannot defeat...

No weapons in Hotline Miami Part 2 - Challenge Scot

So, last week I may have dropped the ball a little bit. Turns out I got slightly ahead of myself and thought I had completed the challenge when I was only halfway through. Whoops! So this week I'm here to finish what I start...   more

No weapons in Hotline Miami - Challenge Scot

This week's challenge centers on Hotline Miami, in which I have to beat chapter 5 without using any weapons. Even when fully armed, death is mere moments away in Hotline Miami.

Fists only in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare - Challenge Scot

This week's challenge is in Grand Theft Auto V in which I attempt to steal a tank from the military base whilst playing online. You die pretty quickly in GTA V and the military don't take too kindly to people trying to steal...   more

Death from above in Battlefield 3 - Challenge Scot

This week's challenge is in Battlefield 3 in which I attempt to run over an enemy player whilst piloting an air vehicle. With so many other players ready to blow me out of the sky combined with my lack of piloting skills, this might be just beyond my grasp! If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!   more

Joining Modern Warfare's Mile High Club - Challenge Scot!

This week's challenge is in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare in which I must beat the "Mile High Club" scenario on veteran. I've never really been super into the Call of Duty games, so my chances of successfully completing this rather notorious challenge are not high! If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!   more

A Chernarus Sing Along in DayZ - Challenge Scot!

This week's challenge is in the Arma 2 mod DayZ, in which I have to track down another player, hope that they don't shoot me on sight, and then get them to sing me a song. DayZ is notorious for having a very hostil...   more

Challenge Scot: Running solo in Left 4 Dead 2

This week's challenge is in Left 4 Dead 2, in which I was tasked with completing the first chapter of No Mercy on expert and without any bots to help me. There's a whole load of zombies standing between me and the safe room, the odds are not stacked in my favor!

Running the length of Liberty City while most wanted

This weeks challenge is in Grand Theft Auto IV, in which I need to run across all three islands, on foot, to get to the airport, all whilst having a six star wanted rating. Liberty City is a big place and there are many trigger happy cops in my way! If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!   more
