Challenges themselves are nothing new to the speedrunning scene – but our developers have been hard at work recently building out a feature to officially support Challenges on! Currently, these challenges are created internally, but our long-term aim is to enable users to create their challenges, with or without prize pools. A Challenge leaderboard functions similarly to the regular leaderboards you’re already familiar with. However, we’ve made a few layout adjustments to cater to the time-sensitive nature of challenges and the inclusion of prize pools.

We are aiming to avoid any undue pressure on the Ghostrunner 2 moderation team – so to ensure a smooth process, all runs submitted to the challenge leaderboard will be screened and verified by either SRC staff or Ghostrunner 2 moderation team members volunteering for the challenge specifically. After the challenge concludes, SRC staff will collaborate with the Ghostrunner 2 moderation team to discuss the potential merging of challenge runs into the regular leaderboard once the moratorium period expires, respecting the mod team’s preferences

Preparation Suggestions:
To follow the challenge and find tips & tricks for the speedrun, visit the Ghostrunner 2 Challenge leaderboard right here on and the GRSR Discord server.

Some Advice:
The challenge lasts for two weeks, which may sound short, but it’s ample time. I recommend taking your time for your first playthrough, focusing on learning the game’s movement and practicing sections before diving into full runs. The fiercest competition for the top three spots typically emerges in the final week or even the last few days of the challenge, so there’s really no need to rush through your initial playthrough.

Good luck, and have fun Ghostrunners!️

10 Interesting Things to Know About Ghostrunner 2

Greetings, Ghostrunners! With the buzzing anticipation around Ghostrunner 2, we wanted to give you a sneak peek into some fascinating insights about the game. Whether you’re a returning fan or new to the series, these tidbits will surely pique your interest and prepare you for the thrilling adventure ahead!

1) Augmented Abilities: While the foundational skills remain, Ghostrunner 2 introduces an array of new abilities for players to harness. These can be mixed and matched, allowing for a tailored gameplay style. From cloaking techniques to devastating ultimate attacks, mastering these new powers can be the difference between survival and defeat.

2) Deflection over Defense: Your blocking is only as good as the direction you’re facing and it consumes stamina. However, deflections, when timed precisely, not only save stamina but can turn the tide in heated confrontations, especially against certain foes. Precisely-timed attacks allow you to deflect bullets, sparing your stamina while ensuring your safety.

3) Master the Parry: Those menacing enemies with AoE attacks aren’t as intimidating as they seem! Sharpen your reflexes, and you can parry their lunges. It’s all about mastering that timing.

4) Stay Agile, Stay Alive: Your movements can be your best defense. Enemies aim at your last location. Use slides, dashes, and jumps creatively. For example, mech waves can be manipulated based on your movement patterns.

5) Versatile Combat Approaches: Every battle offers multiple strategies to reach victory. Experiment with various approaches, abilities, and angles. The game rewards creativity and resilience, so if one tactic doesn’t work, another just might.

6) Dive into the Lore: Ghostrunner 2 expands on its rich backstory. Take your time to delve deeper into its universe; it’s an enthralling journey. The world of Ghostrunner 2 is vast and ripe for exploration. Players will find themselves traversing not just horizontally but also vertically, uncovering hidden areas, shortcuts, and lore-filled pockets. Each corner holds potential secrets, making exploration as rewarding as it is challenging.

7) In-Game Navigation Assist: Struggling to locate adversaries? Your HUD is your guide, pointing you towards remaining enemies and alerting you with bright red indicators during incoming attacks.

8) Admire Your Achievements: After conquering a mission, your armory and unique collectibles can be showcased, reflecting your progress and accomplishments. This is also an opportunity to adjust your upgrades in our new progression system.

9) Shurikens, Your Lethal Ally: More than just a ranged weapon, shurikens can disrupt shields and incapacitate stronger adversaries. Use them wisely to tilt battles in your favor.

10) Community Challenges: Tapping into the competitive spirit, Ghostrunner 2 introduces periodic community challenges where players worldwide can participate and showcase their skills to win prizes. Whether it’s speedrunning or creating Ghostrunner 2 art, these events bring the community together and offer exclusive rewards for top performers.

Ghostrunner 2 Details & Trailer – Wishlist now!

Jacks back! Ghostrunner 2 has been officially revealed! The sequel to the IGN nomination Action Game of the Year has been shrouded in secrecy until now, but we have some exciting details to share with you that are sure to get your adrenaline pumping.

Watch the Ghostrunner 2 announce trailer now!

Ghostrunner 2 explores the world of Ghostrunner, with the player visiting more places, not only Dharma Tower. The game’s story takes place one year after the events of the first game. The people of Dharma Tower are rebuilding, commerce begins to flow, and there is hope for the future. However, with the Keymaster dead, a power vacuum develops with deadlier enemies looking to conquer Dharma tower.

Ghostrunner 2 offers everything you loved about the original, but with even more exciting features. While the first game certainly had some challenging bosses, the sequel takes it to the next level. Get ready to face off against some of the toughest opponents you’ve ever encountered.

The new dialog system allows diving deeper into the lore and plot of GR2. Jack can interact with NPCs that are his friends from the Climbers faction. Plus, there is now a central HQ base of operations where Jack can take a break from missions.

With enhanced gameplay mechanics, more levels to explore, and epic boss fights, Ghostrunner 2 promises to be an exciting and thrilling adventure. With the new skills and powerful Ultimate abilities, players can be more creative during encounters and make the most demanding encounters more accessible. For instance, players can now block projectiles and attacks using the block feature, with each attack having its own cost in stamina. Additionally, there are new skills, such as Shadow, which allows Jack to trick enemies by leaving his copy on the casting spot and entering cloak mode.

Level Design is more versatile, and most of the arenas have multiple ways that can be played. There are many new enemy types, some of the old ones are also redone to fit the new gameplay better, giving players more freedom in choosing how to defeat the most challenging foes.

Cybervoids are utilized better, with the player having more freedom and fun time playing those sections, as the movement is non-limited as it was in Ghostrunner, and there are sometimes combat sections to provide a good intermission from regular levels.

One of the most exciting new features of Ghostrunner 2 is the addition of the motorbike! Some levels that feature the motorbike are far more complex and open world than typical Ghostrunner levels. This means that you’ll have to use your wits and your skills to navigate through these levels, and you’ll have to be on your toes at all times.

The game progression system has been completely redone, allowing players to experiment in various ways. The interactive environment also includes exploding barrels, destructible walls, and more, which can be used by the player. The game now offers more ways to play, not just the campaign. This means that you can climb on the leaderboards and compete against your friends in new and exciting ways.
