Why do u need the 2 frags to carry over? if u have no ammo u start cortana regulary with the rife and shotgun and 2 frags, btw, u shoud carry the hammer from covenant over so u can do hammer jumps in the beginning, theres also a launch u can do

Either wrong thread or wrong link, and I don't know much about speedrunning The Storm.
Didn't know you could carry weapons over from Covenant to Cortana. That's awesome. Chapp, did you see everything that Zealot has been working on for this level? Really impressive stuff. I was going to have a go at it to see what new shortcuts I could find, but he seems to have found everything =D
Also, to touch on that video you posted, Chase. Zealot found a way to skip the scarab via wraith, which is what I'll be doing in my run. Just gotta jack an anti-air wraith first.
Try and catch me

Ya Zealot and I have been coordinating on Cortana. I believe my final run is the run, but we'll see, since he is probably gonna do his own run and we can compare times. Not much more to optimize, since I've added 2 dc launches and a new box launch.
Very nice! The DC's were pretty well placed, and I especially liked the little grenade jump at the first Cortana moment.
Thanks Zanzibar! Hopefully someone will be able to achieve a better time than me. I'm reluctant to redo the last few segments. If only there had been better visibility during that moment, I could have done that a lot faster.
