The same basic run as my last; just a bit faster. It bugged me that I knew I could do better then what was on there. So here it is, Exodus Legendary in 12:59.
Wow. I knew I’d get a Normal run to go with my Easy run at some point, but I didn’t expect it to be the next day. On my first try of the night, I dropped 23 seconds from my previous record, matching my Easy time of 10:02. The first half of the run actually goes quicker in this version, offset by what seemed to be a little more waiting between waves in the Glacier fight (I’m not entirely clear on the triggers). Like the Easy run, this can definitely go under 10. I also forgot to thank Dark Devastation in the last run for revealing the use of the Revenant in “taking out those guns”.
As a long time speedrun watcher/lurker, I’ve always been interested in trying it myself, but never really buckled down and got anything done. Finally, after months of off and on attempts of The Package on both Normal and Easy, I managed to put something together I thought would be worth submitting. It’s not perfect (my Ghost gets flipped by an Elite made of concrete), but I think the path is pretty solid. I think the time could easily go as low as 9:45-9:50. Special thanks to the recently posted Heroic run by Ringtext showing off an easier version of the statue jump. I hope to have a slightly slower Normal run fairly soon.
