This is a similar run to my last one with a couple major improvements. The initial ghost section actually doesn’t require you to kill any ghosts. More than half of the time the ghosts back off after passing through the first door. I was also more aggressive in the final section.

I lost some time with the Hunters and when the Oliphant got stuck near the end of the highway. Otherwise I would have been under 30 minutes.

Regardless, I feel like I can finally move on to something else!

I never considered speed running this mission until I realized my first successful LASO run was only a few minutes off the current record. I knew a few places I had been overly patient, so I decided to give it a shot.

There are a few places that could definitely be improved upon; the first ghost section, and the last round of brutes in the final section just to name a couple.

Most of what I have to add didn’t work out in this run. I’m going back to try to beat my time and add in these parts. Hopefully I’ll have a new post soon!

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.

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.
