What should the words “invincible Sergeant Johnson” and “Legendary” remind you of? Well, a zero-shot speed run, of course! Ferlodergarnil has submitted a zero-shot run of Cairo Station, making full use of the fact that Sergeant Johnson is invincible. While this may sound like a easy thing to do, the run shows it is far from it. There are many close calls (check out the bomb room!), and lots of hide-and-go-seek. Go check out the 35:54 run!
With the flood of runs that been sent in these last few months, it seems that two have fallen through the cracks in my hard drive. If it weren’t for themann1086 & IrishMann313 submitting a new Cairo run (and a PM from Cody) I would have entirely missed them.
The first is from Ic1cLe who charges through Heroic in 7:18.
The next two are from The Brothers Mann. They attain the fastest time on the Level with an Easy run in 4:32, and refine their Legendary run to a near perfect 8:07.
The Mann brothers, themann1086 and IrishMann313 are well known here. They hold more than 30 co-op records and prove they totally dominate Cairo Station by lowering the time, yet again, to 7:31. They also have a knack for filling Legendary blanks with the recent Oracle in 22:12, and Sacred Icon in 21:23.
The Tan brothers, Cold-PhuRy and Asniper are Chinese and hail from Singapore. They have filled the Arbiter Heroic blank with a 6:10 run and improved the Arbiter Normal time by 13 seconds to 4:12.
Brother Cloud and Brother Sephiroth are from England, while not technically brothers (they are friends), seem to run as if they were. The runs they have provided are two levels extracted from an impressive 2:10 Full Game Legendary run of Halo CE, which is why they did not revert after dying in the first minute of TB. The Library clocks in at19:19, and Two Betrayals at 25:26.
