Sekela and I run the existing path in an effort to get a Normal co-op run that is close to the existing Easy co-op run.
I think we succeeded.
This speed run is also available for viewing on TermaciousTrickocity‘s YouTube channel.

This mission is all about risk vs. reward. It’s easy if you take it slow, but there are many dangerous ways to speed things up. I opted for risk, and it paid off with this run.
Scorpion section is standard. You could probably save about 30 seconds with faster driving. In the base, I go straight up the middle, killing key enemies quickly. As for the Elites, I found that firing a couple needles and throwing a grenade usually makes enough of a window for you to sprint jump to the button.
At this point, the hard part is done. After using a Banshee for the first wave, I decided to play it safe and use the Wraith for the rest of the fight. If used correctly, it can be just as fast. In the final wave, I was lucky to have the Phantom despawn instead of flying off. This ends the level earlier. As far as I know, this occurrence is random.
Improvements can be made everywhere. You can be much more aggressive with the Scorpion and save up to 30 seconds. If you can use the Banshee all the way, you can definitely speed up the final fight.
Time is 13:06. There isn’t such a large gap between Heroic and Legendary now!

Wow. I knew I’d get a Normal run to go with my Easy run at some point, but I didn’t expect it to be the next day. On my first try of the night, I dropped 23 seconds from my previous record, matching my Easy time of 10:02. The first half of the run actually goes quicker in this version, offset by what seemed to be a little more waiting between waves in the Glacier fight (I’m not entirely clear on the triggers). Like the Easy run, this can definitely go under 10. I also forgot to thank Dark Devastation in the last run for revealing the use of the Revenant in “taking out those guns”.
