Pro Tips[]

  • Always try to run and jump! You move faster this way. Integrating it into your speedrun is a crucial skill that we call sequencing. If you watch any speedrun closely, the runner is always running and jumping, occasionally missing steps or taking standing jumps. This is all to line Lara up good for bigger/more difficult jumps.
  • Pushing blocks is preferable to pulling, Its marginally faster
  • Where a block is one "tile" high and you need to get up there, try to hop back and jump up as opposed to climbing up on the block.
  • Turning with guns is slightly faster than rolling and should be done where possible
