Here it is folks, the run I have been working on for years.
Originally started this mission back in ’09 with the intention on beating Pahis.
Many controllers later, I’m extremely overjoyed about this, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
I had almost given up with this run, but it wasnt untill I re-watched H1DS w/ Commentary that it had inspired me to give it one more last shot.

The run itself is pretty flawless, however, not completely. It pains me to say this, but it could go faster. The Wraith part in the first lakebed, taking out the Ghosts dragged on far too long. I could’ve saved a good 5-10 seconds there, had I landed the mortar shots quicker. I’m extremely happy with the rest of the mission though, it went exactly how I had planned.

You’ll see my excitement in the run itself, when I clear the final group of enemies and its a clear run to the finish line.

(in case you were wondering 1 over 31,536,000 is 2 seconds over 2 years – nok)

N8ked Eli conquers another Halo 3 level, this time improving The Storm No-shot run by an astounding 9 minutes and 40 seconds! He throws caution to the wind and barrels past the first set of enemies, leaving his turret gunner to take care of any stragglers. He even ditches his warthog to reach the first Cortana transmission faster. If you weren’t watching too closely, you would think this was a shooting speedrun of The Storm, as N8ked Eli takes out the Scarab much the same way similar runs have done so, beating towards distruction with just a pistol. He goes onto to use a route first used by slYnki to skip the final waves of enemies, destroying the AA-gun when trigger the checkpoint. Very impressive work.

Halo 3 The Storm Legendary Difficulty Zero Shots in 9:55 by N8ked Eli

From the original High Speed Halo News Post:

The Halo 3 Zero Shots page goes live today. These unique runs are only different from regular runs in that you must not fire any ranged weapons. This usually means that you must find clever alternate methods to proceed through the Mission. For Halo 3 the strategies have greatly changed from Halo CE (boarding vehicles, exchanging weapons etc.) and from Halo 2 (equipment, smarter AI etc.) and you now have the Arbiter to help you along the way.

The first two runs are very good examples of the new techniques Halo 3 offers. XBmaster strolls through Floodgate, in 4:22, as if he were invisible. Proving that sometimes it is best not to shoot and attract enemies. LegacyXI demonstrates that The Storm is a Mission taylor-made for a Zero Shot run with his 19:35 romp through the warehouse district. It’s almost as if Bungie watched all the Halo CE and Halo 2 Zero Shots and decided to gift us with the perfect Zero Shot Mission. Yes, there are still challenges, but the first two thirds can be spent driving gunners from enemy to enemy. Thank you Bungie.

Now onto the main course, the duo Cheeserliker92 & Rorcin co-op Legendary runs. They revisit the Ark, following Maluu’s run to a T. It’s pretty entertaining to watch both runs at the same time and point out the similarities. They even kill the brute Chieftain before he reaches the platform. Their second co-op run on the Storm improves the previous run by nearly a minute, incorporating a fancy ghost maneuver to get to the missile pod in record time, as well as firing off 2 sets of plasma pistols to kill the anti-air gun in one blow.

Psychophan7 & SimpsonRule have submitted four awesome runs, a Legendary run of Crow’s Nest, and three runs of The Storm. The Legendary run is a sight to see, incorporating all the tricks from their previous runs, but they throw in a couple tricks on the spur of the moment that make the run a joy to watch. That runs also brings Crow’s Nest to Full House Status.
The other 3 Storm run demonstrate a neat trick about taking out the AA gun. I won’t spoil it for you, it’s worth seeing for yourself.
