YouTuber proves you can beat Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice using only Prosthetic Tools

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice's Prosthetic Tools can be used for more than just distraction, if you're willing to bend a couple of rules.

Souls YouTuber Iron Pineapple has posted a new challenge run of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The goal is simple: defeat all bosses using nothing but Prosthetic Tools.

Though some of them deal damage, Prosthetic Tools are typically not strong enough to whittle down a boss' entire health bar. For this reason, Iron Pineapple decided to use an infinite Spirit Emblems cheat, because the run would otherwise be impossible. And, since you need to use your sword for the deathblow in Sekiro, the YouTuber will only do so to finish off bosses.

For the rest of the run, though, they're never going to use the sword to attack an enemy in any way. The full run can be seen below, and it's an interesting mix of spam and precision. Some Sekiro bosses are weaker to certain Prosthetic Tools, which ends up being their downfall thanks to having infinite Emblems.
