Team ChickenWheat FTW!

Basically the same principals as before, but we improved every area possible, and finally managed to hit sub 12 minutes. We didn’t realize just how fast the run was until we killed the final ultra elite. We can safely say, we never have to hear ‘we have bogies inbound’ ever again!

Karima’s had enough speedrun records, I wanted to give an opportunity to my good friend, F1amin Chicken. We used the plasma pistol from the first jackals to kill the elite drop pod before he starts walking, which triggers the door to open before killing all the enemies. During the first space fight, we go all out killing. For the second space fight, Chicken starts tearing the Seraphs apart, while I kill the banshees under the corvette and the engines. When we get onto the corvette, Chicken works his magic with the sword and saves me a few times. We pretty much spawnkill the Covenant to speed up the spawning sequences.

We got this run on roughly our third attempt, which is pretty good considering Hybrid hadn’t played reach in over 6 months prior to this speedrun! This seemed a rather unpopular mission for people to attempt to speedrun, so I thought there’d be no competition to try and beat the current record time. The run can be made quicker by at least killing the ultra drop pod elite outside the entrance doors before he sets foot on the ground, which I can’t seem to master for the life of me. Anyway, enjoy this 2 player speedrun and message me if you’re interested in running any missions with me! :)

Good beach fight. The space fight is where the most time can be lost or gained and my fight was good but not perfect. The Corvette section had some annoying mistakes, but they didn’t lose me more than a few seconds. Improvable if you’re good at the sabre fight.

This speed run is also available for viewing on Backflip‘s YouTube channel.

Although completed, on 9th August 2011, RC Master wasn’t completely happy with this 32:09 epic through the Long Night of Solace on Legendary All Skulls On – so it wasn’t submitted. But a record is a record, and no-one had come close to beating it in more than a year (the next two fastest runs were both RC’s as well) so finally he submitted it. Now, we have assured that he won’t hold-out on us on such interesting runs in the future. Isn’t that right RC?

I promise not to hold-off on submitting runs in the future.

Good. ;)

To celebrate Bungie Day (July 7th) 2012, RC Master decided to run through the whole of Reach on Legendary with 11 Skulls on (No Iron or Blind)! Game time is exactly 3 hours 33 minutes!

As he describes in the intro to the video, this is roughly equivalent to the difficulty you are required to play on for the LASO Weekly Challenges. The video comes in at just under 4 hours (including loading and cutscenes) and you can see him doing it live with a little picture-in-picture view of him – which he uses to provide commentary on the run as he does it.

There are a few deaths during the run (8 in all) but only one costs him any real time and most are just unlucky. None of the individual levels are as fast as the single-level LASO speed runs he and others have done – but these are all back-to-back on the day!

The gameplay on the first level, Winter Contingency, starts 6 1/2 minutes in.

If you don’t feel like watching the whole thing in one go, the timestamps for the various levels are in the YouTube description.

Enjoy! And Happy Bungie Day!

EDIT: Bungie actually left a comment on this video using their YouTube account:

You look spry, my man, and focused. Thanks for playing. You make it look easy.

Beaches, flying, space combat, covenant craft assaults – this level has it all, and it’s all done in just 18:24 by yours truly: RC Master.

During the middle of a Legendary Single Segment run, I managed a 21:21 run. Since it was deathless, and the fastest I had managed to do it, I submitted it to HSH. Inspired by my success during the SS, I revisited Long Night of Solace as a single level speed run, getting better at the tricks, getter more aggressive on the fighting. The result, shortly thereafter, was the 18:24 run you see today. It’s faster than I expected to get when I first started running LNoS (sub 20 mins) so I’m quite pleased with it.

Also available is a version with RC Master’s own commentary on his YouTube.

Insetik 47 skips past the beach, launches into space, and guts a Corvette on Normal in 15:09.

In his own words:

I’m sending this run really late considering when I did it (6 months!), but I’m obviously not beating this or anything. I can say that I was inspired by SlYnki’s easy run where he skipped the beach firefight, so credit to him for the next day or two that followed.

BEACH/FACILITY: I need to get up to the facility as fast as I can, getting a plasma pistol along the way. I had a bit of trouble getting the plasma pistol, but didn’t fall behind enough to miss the battle skip. How this works is that the trigger for starting the ‘unskippable’ battle in front of the facility is the white elite from the drop pod existing for a second or so. Existing, bad word, but if I kill the elite fast enough, the battle is skipped and the door just opens to let you in. I grab the sword in the launch base and get into the Sabre.

SABRE STUFF:lalalalala, get through controls ASAP, then line the banshees up for a multi… I messed this up, you can pretty much get them all in a row at the right angle. Other than that, it’s all you basically. For the phantoms, take them from left to right (of Anchor 9).

IN THE SHIP: Just watch my amazing thinking on the fly during this part. When charging the bridge, I, uh, completely forgot how to fight good and put some elites on my tail. Then, the bridge went pretty bad. On the way back, I ran into those elites again and apparently forgot I had a DMR. I don’t know how much time i lost per se, but I should learn to fight better. Last battle went amazingly, though. Clear everyone, rocket the jackals, grenade the second wave, rocket the third wave, run up, rocket the elites, then send a rocket across to the last elites and cleanup the survivors.

In the end, no one knows how perfectly the Sabre fights can go, so I’m just going with my gut that these seemed fast. This will give Long Night a legendary run and a normal run, so you can see both speed and persistence.
