Last time I checked:

NORMAL run: Worldrank #25 with 03:46'37''
NORMAL run: Worldrank #77 with 02:26'26'' (NEW GAME+)
PRO run: Worldrank #321 with 09:12'22'' (no Speedrun!)
Seperate Ways: Worldrank #80 with 01:30'22'' (was more a Semi-Speedrun)
Seperate Ways: Worldrank #53 with 00:46'22'' (NEW GAME+)

What I did (NORMAL):

-Collected treasures that were right on the way/path.
-At the house ambush I chose Gate #2 with El Gigante.
-For the puzzles, I memorized them all.
-Used the Rocket Launcher for every boss-fight (mandatory).
-For Krauser I used Knife only.
-Avoided fights with Ganados/Las Plagas wherever I can.
-Used Flash Grenades when I got overrun and rushed to the next area.
-Used Special Costume #2 for Ashley's Knight armor.

Oh btw if everyone thought I had no more items in the end, on the contrary (right before Saddler):

-31.100 PTAS
-Blacktail (50% upgraded)
-Striker (no upgrades)
-Rifle (semi-auto) (50% upgraded)
-Rocket Launcher 1x
-Incendiary Grenade 3x
-Flash Grenade 2x
-Hand Grenade 4x
-Green Herbs 5x
-Mixed Herbs 4x
-First Aid Spray 5x

No offense but I don't think many will post in here since 95% of the users in here are in for completion not speedruns. :)

I would like to attempt a speedrun at some point. I've played through the game quite a few times, I think I can get a decent time on it.

I'm going to make a habit of playing through at least once a year, more than likely more. So I'm sure I'll go for the speedrun at some point.

Your speedruns don't count after a new game. I completed it 4 hrs and 14 mins and it didn't register. Still says 13 hrs for my first run. Save your time.

So does your speedrun not get recorded on a New Game+? Because it would seem obvious to just speedrun with the P.R.L.

Haha I should have told you this before. I've noticed so after I tried my Semi-Speedrun with Ada in Separate Ways with 59 minutes, fail cause it was a New Game+.

NOPE, no New Game+. This makes things a lot more interesting. Yo everybody in here take a good look at the TOP OF THE LEADERBOARDS it says

LEADERBOARD "NEW GAME ONLY"

My times still count though. :p

Um.. I didn't look at the top right before I done a new game + the first time and after I got all happy and it said "Upload Data to leaderbaords?" I exited to the boards menu and seen my time was still 13hrs.

Yeah weird, why they even asking "UPLOAD TO LEADERBOARD" if you're on a New Game+.

What are you guys talking about there is a leader board for new game+. I believe you hit the Y button or something when your on the leader board and it switches over.

I got a time of 3:41 something on Pro New Game. Was Rank 15 the last time i looked. About 3:30 on Normal. But 3 hrs is possible for me i think. Going to give it a try in the future.

Some things I did: When you first come to Pueblo try to kill as many Ganados as possible. This will save time because otherwise you would have to wait 7 minutes for the bell to ring. At the end of Chapter 2-2 where you have to survive the ganado assault shoot the windows open so luis can start killing ganados. Take the items and position yourself at the top of the stairs killing everything coming up. After some time Luis comes running up the stairs. Go down the stairs about half way and keep killing everything. Luis can take care of the ganados using the Ladders all by himself if you manage to let no one coming up the stairs.

Using a Rocket for all the Bosses except for Krauser saves a lot of Time too :)

Beheaded Dragon use the EDIT button on the lower right corner of your post next time to edit your post instead of a tripple post, that's against the forum rules.

Oh btw WELCOME TO THIS SITE & nice time with your pro run though!

@JuSt BLaZe

I did a speed run. 2 hr 59 minutes. Uploaded it. Should be #13 worldwide. I'm not on the leaderboard anywhere.

A hint for speedruns:: DO NOT waste time killing enemies if you aren't required to. There are plenty that you can run from to lower your completion time

#82 | Siefors | 3:09:58 I'm in the best 0,38% YAY

Leaderboards - All

Leaderboards - All

#101 | Siefors | 2:06:28

I've learned a lot from gamefaqs, video walkthroughs and experience. :)
First speedrun I did on Main Game - New Game only was 6 hours, second speedrun 4:30:~~, third 3:40:~~ and at last I came close to 3 hours. Don't pick up unneccesary amounts of ammo, pick up plenty grenades and flash grenades and treasures as long as you don't deviate from your goal too much. It's wise to use typewriters.
