Some of the tricks employed by this demonically swift n speedy gamer to achieve the new record:
- Breaking his own legs to gain speed. This works by saving and quickloading just before crippling your character; if done correctly the game grants you a 152% speedboost.
- Playing the game in Italian, as it is quicker than the English voice acting.
- Skipping NPC dialogue via quicksaves.
- Clipping through walls using quicksaves—Kungkobra notes that “wall collision is kinda dodgy in this game.”
- Freezing enemies. As Kungkobra explains it, if you bring up the map screen and then place a custom marker fast enough, the process will halt enemies around you. This is how he blazes past difficult enemies—the speedrun is a lot of literal running through the wasteland.
