isn’t the best part of speedrunnung, coming up with the route yourself? not just making minor improvements on the time.

Yes. This series is aimed at people that want to give speedrunning a try. Showing them fairly easy to replicate walkthroughs, with commentary on why this works, aswell as showcasing some of the tricks frequently used by speedrunners.

And will hopefully inspire some people to get them into speedrunning, this being the little nudge they needed because it can be overwhelming/intimidating at first.

I’m encouraging people to come up with their own speedrun strats throughout the whole series.

This is [email protected] I’ve always watched your videos and others speedrun and never played the game this way. This has really helped me understand quite a few things.

I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t even realize you could shoot the doors open. To think I call myself a Hitman fan.

Thanks for putting this together. You’ve inspired me to try a whole new approach.

I don’t think I’ll ever really be up for trying speedrunning seriously because I simply don’t have the fine motor skills required for precise, fast shooting that even the most basic speedrunning strats require (and I don’t have the willingness/patience to improve my shooting either), but regardless I love watching these videos @frote7. :+1:

It’s really interesting watching speedrunners explain the advanced mechanics of the game and why things work, and even if I will never try to speedrun missions myself I am still very grateful for the lessons in game mechanics, a number of which I can use at much lower speed for my own ultra cautious playstyle.

Love this! Thanks @Frote7! I guess I’m just too impatient to speedrun. But already learned a lot by just watching your videos. What I’ve seen a lot in those run (not only your runs) is some kind of inventory-interact-mix. Does this save time? Or is this just an impatient speedrunner? Often see it when a speedrunner exits a mission.

Normally you have to keep on pressing the interact button for things like exits, picking up items, and so on. This takes like 0.3s. But if you enter inventory and exit it with the interact key, you skip that time. It is a tiny but free time bonus.

Remember H2SA, when we skipped lockpick animation by opening and closing the map? :joy: The series is true to its roots!

As I wrote on YouTube: I love such guides to get SASO - simply because the one-save-limit completely destroys the fun for me. I’d rather retry a speedrun ten times than having to wait 7 minutes for a loop to complete again because I could not save in a critical moment. Many thanks to guys like you!
