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, 2014 @ 3:47pm 
yeah, because Speed Runs are all about legit playstyle ;-D
goodone Feb 5, 2014 @ 5:02pm 
asaik, they r... all speedruns can b done with legit playstyle. maybe no soloing... but legit.
Social Commander Feb 5, 2014 @ 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?

this video is unavailable anymore, could you give us another one (i couldn't find one on my own) that shows what have you done to get out of the map's bounds? or at least explain which exactly railing you got over? i tried few times, but barrels just went through a railing and fell down >:I
