I saved time here using a number of tricks.
First, at the first tyrant gun, I used the same tactic as in my Legendary run: block the door with the warthog and grenade the core from the outside. Then, I grab the ghost and gun it to the BXR Facility, where I perform the skip. But wait, I didn’t grab a concussion rifle! That’s right, it isn’t necessary to have it in order to take the shortcut. Instead of losing time trying to obtain the concussion rifle at the beginning or even the first tyrant gun, you can use a single frag grenade to jump to the roof. If you’re fast enough, you can even get by without killing the grunt in the turret. After that, I used the wraith to clear out the enemies quickly at the second tyrant gun, rode the falcon, ran to the spire, and finished the level with an exceptional time of 6:50.
I now know how Pahis feels, having a run beaten by one second. I wasn’t planning on getting this record back. But when I saw HSH was uploading speedruns again, I wanted to have another go.
I managed to improve the old record by 7 seconds. A few small mistakes in this run cost it from going close to 7:00.
Anyone want to bring this closer to 7:00 and maybe even knock it sub 7?
