How long is Chained Together?

Chained Together supports local co-op too.

So far, streamers have reported completion times ranging from 3 to 8 hours. Chained Together’s length is largely based on you and your team’s ability to coordinate and climb up the unusual surfaces of hell. Of course, the difficulty level as well as the setting to keep the chains Opened or Locked also play a huge role in determining these numbers.

So, with a well coordinated squad, you can aim to complete Chained Together in between 3-5 hours. Reaching the Summit in Lava mode will naturally be quicker because you’ll always have to be above the lava but the mode gives no room for making errors.
