This tutorial shows how to set up and perform the bugger skip launch in Data Hive from Halo ODST.

Originally discovered by B5Dredbulltsff, it skips the trigger for the buggers on the top floor and allows you walk to the end in Legendary and SLASO speed runs.

Practice Makes Perfect.
Enjoy!

This run of Data Hive on Normal in 11 minutes and 36 seconds is.. interesting. I managed to get a very good time despite not having a gravity hammer for the fight in chapter 3 (after meeting Vergil). There were also quite a lot of movement optimizations that adds up to at least 5 seconds or more lost. Sub 11:30 is possible.

This coop speedrun of Oni Alpha Site on normal, despite having a few deaths, is actually a pretty good time. There are things in the fighting that could be done better, plus a one second optimization at the bridge that might help, but I’m happy with this time. 8:30 is possible however.

This heroic run takes another 2 seconds off my previous record, which is pretty good. The thing about prepare to drop on high difficulties is that legendary requires 3 nades on the first fight instead of 2 like how easy normal and heroic do, so that means that the last fight is hindered because of the first fight.

This run beats the previous record by a little less than 10 seconds, which isn’t bad. The fighting and movement in the area prior to meeting Dare was pretty good, the fight after meeting up with Buck went by well too, but not being at the door when it opened probably lost a significant amount of time, so this can be pushed down lower, maybe to sub 11:50.
