Playing through “Casual” with the infinite ammo S.T.A.K.E. is hilarious.

Going for the 3 hour run, just did start of game to escaping the castle in about 15 minutes. I think I hit Lady D like 4 times and she died. That’s it.. that’s the whole post.

I was having fun just one shotting lycans in the "survive the attack" segment.

Its all fast and fun, until you reach Donnas House. Hate that Shit.

Really I wasn't even speed running the game and Donna's house took no time at all

ID: h1bjtcm

Very very repetitive

ID: h1bwpjj

It takes me about 20 minutes to get through it but I'm on my 7th playthrough, the lack of any variation even in VoS mode is underwhelming

It goes by so fast on casual you'll likely end up spending more time skipping or watching unskippable cutscenes rather than play the actual game.

Although it's funny how Moreau's death cutscene triggers almost immediately the moment you start to spam a fully upgraded infinite S.T.A.K.E. Makes him look even more pathetic than he already is. Lmao.

I don't find a normal playthrough on casual goes very fast tbh

I'm currently doing village of shadows with the infinite S.T.A.K.E., propeller boy is kicking my ass. Going to try the speed run next.

Tips: when he starts charging you, do a 90-degree turn and run straight forward. He doesn't track you, so he'll blow right past and you should have a good look at his weak spot.

ID: h1abkvf

Appreciate that. This fight is making me dread the Mother Miranda one. I know that bitch is gonna be tough.

ID: h1adz7p

Flashbangs make that fight trivial.

ID: h1aeaec

Good to know. I'll bust out the GL next time I fire up Village.

ID: h1ajaha

Tip, after the you get him to phase two, wait til he charges, shoot then immediately hide behind a wall, he should spray flames at the wall so you shouldn't have to deal with it on the arena floor as much

ID: h1ao3k3

If you have any flash grenade rounds you can blind him and he’ll turn away from you and hit a wall.

I found flashbangs with the grenade launcher worked a treat on the tougher fights in VoS. I did die a few times to Heisenberg and chopper boy but found the Chris section almost obnoxiously difficult. I managed it eventually. Keep at it, it's a great feeling when you finally crack it.

I did the 3 hour run with an infinite ammo WCX and it went by so quick. I was so close to finishing it in 2:00. I managed to be it in 2:02.

ID: h1ahl4q

Do you have any tips for the speed run? I'm already at the two hour mark by the time I get to House Beneviento

ID: h1aj1c1

Yeah… fasted I can do Beneviento is 15:40, from the time you enter the house till the time you leave. I also can’t beat Angie any faster than 1:40, even on casual with NG+ speed buff.

Don't kill anything unless it's blocking your way or obviously it's a boss or something. Just run from objective to objective and if you're not sure, pause the game and think about it. The in game timer doesn't run on pause.

If you have the routing down, you should be done with House Beneviento by 45 minutes or so. If you're using Infinite STAKE there is no reason to stop for anything. You don't need ammo and you don't need treasure or heals.

Don't loot and know where to go. It's fairly easy if you got a good infinite weapon (my Village of Shadows time was 02:15′15″271 according to

Sounds like you were wasting time collecting items/treasures or something which you don't want to do on the speedrun. Forget the money just go go go.

As far as non-obvious tips go, infinite grenade launcher with flashbangs can make some areas go by faster than trying to kill enemies in your way (like the run through the stronghold to get 4th flask).

I was about to say, infinite WCX was the first weapon I got because I knew it’d make the game a joke on every difficulty, and whoo boy was I right

Me: "There's no way I'm gonna beat this game in under 4 hours."

Beats it in well under 3 hours with the above.

ID: h1acpzs

Yeah I beat it in just under 3 hours on my 2nd or 3rd run through the game I think. I remember not really trying to "speed run" it per se, but I was doing it relatively fast just for the sake of getting through it as I was trying to complete some challenges to get enough points to buy some bonus weapons. I got half way through the factory and it dawned on me that I might be able to get the 3 hour challenge if I haul ass the rest of the way and I finished at around 2 hours and 50 something minutes. All this to say, it's surprisingly easier than you would think to complete the game in under 3 hours on normal or casual.

ID: h1agqgq

This speedrun challenge was way easier than the one for re2 remake. I just played the game normally while skipping cutscenes and I had 40 minutes to spare. Only thing I had to be careful about was resisting the urge to loot everything in the village.

I beat VoS under 3 hours with this and I wasn’t even going for a speed run lmao
