Speed and movement

Movement Average Speed
Running 512
Bunny Hopping 576
Slug advancing
Slug hopping

Weapon and damage dealing

Weapon damage
Handgun 1
knife
Heavy machine gun
Fire gun
Bazooka
Missile pipe
Pineapple

Note that you can only have 2 grenades (or bazooka bullets ; 1 missiles shot) on screen, then you need to wait the end of the explosion animation to shot . Maybe to prevent things like this : <blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="MWRTydO"><a href="//imgur.com/MWRTydO">View post on imgur.com</a></blockquote><script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script> (i found a trick that skip this waiting by offscreen the explosion, but uselessl until last boss, and it slower than actual sub).

Route planning

Glitches and tricks

  • Event skipping : By jumping at a certain (tight) X position you can cancel the screen lock that trigger the event. I empty shot in the air to let you guys know when it used.

  • Pineapple cap glitch : in stage 20, jump on the machine gun then rejump (after throwing pine).

  • Instant trolley max speed : press down for two frames before landing in.

Stage by stage comments

Mission 1 The Front Line

Skip a shopfilter. <blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="CZyTsVd"><a href="//imgur.com/CZyTsVd">View post on imgur.com</a></blockquote><script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script> Crash then Drop Pack is faster than complete slugflyer part.

Mission 3 Dire Straits

Sunk the submarine to reach mission 5. There is one specific x/y position to reach in order to get incomplete screen faster (not necessary to say that i found it by pure luck).

Mission 5 Battlefield Bridge

Nothing here, just keep max speed as long as possible.

Mission 6 Turbulent Transmissions

Miss a shot, it just pass near the left ear of a soldier. I don't even try to tasediting it cause all my past try change the behavior somewhere later.
