All SOLO Speed Runs completed!
"You can't do this on Easy. Switch to normal noob" .... ach SHUT UP! :-P

Every Speed Run achievement is possible to get in Easy Mode. You can do it on Normal or any other difficulty you like.

I got all Speed Run achievements solo without help. See my Easy Mission Times.
Residential seems to be impossible, because you can't split yourself in half. -.-

I didn't use any mod, cheat or console command, just the "asw_ignore_need_two_player_requirement 1" to be able to start the mission.

SOLO Speedrun Landing Bay!

Problem? =D Here have a

A video would be nice

Also, I wonder what strategy you used. I'm still lacking the achievement myself.

Well I jumped down one level on the map. With the help of a barrel, someone can jump over the fence after the first hack and run under the map. Tricky, but this video is close to what I did.

aka "exploit usage".
Social Commander Feb 5 @ 3:47pm 
yeah, because Speed Runs are all about legit playstyle ;-D

asaik, they r... all speedruns can b done with legit playstyle. maybe no soloing... but legit.
Social Commander Feb 5 @ 5:18pm 
Soloing Landing Bay the legit way (and of course Residential) is impossible. The doors I blasted with hornet barages, grenade launcher and chainsaw combo. Tried to weld the damn 2nd door. Tried to hack the first door.... but to no avail. I'm 6 or so seconds too slow and I was getting lucky instant hacks.

I'm new to this game, but I think, doing speed runs the legit way is the hardest way. They give the player blink packs and jump boots, which are always used to exploit shortcuts. :D

blink packs and jump boots r legit, as long as u don't use them to jump, for example, over blastdoors in reactor map. and no, u can't speedrun whole jacob on solo, unless u do exploits, as i said.

How did you manage to throw yourself over the railing?
