So, I've been working on a Metropolis Legendary run and ran into a neat little glitch that gave me the sweet beautiful time of...

get ready for it...

1:07!

If anybody even bothers to care, I will explain this glitch.

I would be also, that's a hell of a timesaver on a level that's already so short (comparatively speaking).

How I got it so quickly:

1) Hop in hog and drive until the banshees start appearing
2) Jack a banshee and boost until you get to the barrier
3) I DON'T KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED, but I was hit by a wraith blast, the game lagged quickly and I was shot through the elastic barrier and I was stuck in boost

I flew all the way to the end of the level where, for some reason, the scarab was there, so I got in, killed the enemies that were frozen, and the level finished.

Okay, not denying that you didn't do this, but I think the time is just a bit off. It takes me exactly 1:07 to simply enter the tunnel when driving the warthog across the bridge. I'm thinking you possibly meant 2:07 because 1:07 is just not possible.

Do you have this run on tape?


And the current time is 4:33 I believe. I know it's very close ot my time of 4:25 for Normal.

is this something like your Gravemind/High Charity find from October - what ever became of that amazing discovery - we're still waiting for the tape to arrive - sorry, this time we're going to need ocular confirmation

Getting past that elastic barrier barrier is like.... impossible.
It's stretches back 'till the end of that first map.

How was the scarab there? I thought you had to load it somewhere...and I think the enemies in it are also loaded, not frozen.
