Cathedral of Truth

01.11.2013 - 01.17.2013

Aim for the fastest time in chapter 2 of Leon's scenario! Nothing will be revealed unless you make it to the cathedral...at least it's hard to miss.

How to participate
Players who beat their personal highscore during the event period

Rule details
- Speedrun for the lowest time in Leon chapter 2
- No difficulty setting limits.
- No single / multiplayer limits.
- Chapter clear time is taken from the RECORDS menu
- In the event of a tie down to the closest hundredth of a second, the player with the highest number of [Zombie] kills wins.
I'm a fan of speedrunning so I took special interest to Cathedral of Truth, doing a moderately paced run a bit ago. Clocked in at 43:08. Lots of room for improvement though, doesn't help that I did it with an AI either

After I finalize the route I'll be looking for a partner to really optimize it, so if you're interested just post below! I only ask that you have infinite ammo of some kind because it's sooo useful.

Looking forward to seeing everyone else's times.

EDIT: New time of 35:03 now. Pretty good run, especially the boss fight, but it could still be improved because the AI was slow and I had some issues with the bells. Still looking for a partner to trim this more.

EDIT 2: Holy crap, just had what I thought was a terrible run as Helena and still beat my previous time with 34:20. Leon drags his ass more than Helena, I got trolled during the Lepotitsa fight and even died during the minecart section (granted it was right after a checkpoint, so I didn't have to redo anything), but despite that I somehow beat my previous time. I originally thought playing as Helena would save some time because she can get a head start on the Cathedral and lever puzzles, but I think you end up losing more time in the Ada crossover.

EDIT 3: Alright, last edit/run until I get a partner. Did another run as Leon, very few mistakes and timed in at 32:29! This would be very hard to beat with an AI so I'm not going to bother, but still if anybody wants to tackle this co-op let me know.

I still have to do this. I am going to wait until after I have completed Jake's campaign (so as to not interrupt the story, since this is my first time through his). Only 2 chapters left. We'll see how this rolls.

I would be up for teaming up with people for this, however I haven't yet finished Ada's campaign, so I'm without Infinite ammo (you DO need to finish all four, right?).

I played this chapter quite casually the other night, with quite a few mistakes and I came in at 51 minutes, so I'm amazed at how quick it can be done judging by your time Veedrock, and the other times on the RE.NET leaderboards...

So I will try a bit later tonight to see what I can do to shave off those precious minutes and seconds. Any tips?

Good times, by the way!

Those previous practice runs paid off, I just clocked 26'10 by teaming up with one of the top 3 on the leaderboard (his best being 24'04). Damn near flawless run, he said the only way to cut off significant time would be to play split-screen. I'm plenty satisfied with this time though

I'm still game to help out though, even without infinite ammo and such. I'm thinking that Top 100 will be a little more competitive come the next leaderboard update, but Top 1000 still isn't hard to accomplish.

26 minutes is crazy! Wow. Well done!
I'd be happy with top 100, I'm currently 901! :/
I'd begrateful if you wouldn't mind running through one with me, I'm sure I won't be good enough to get those crazy times, but better than what I'm doing now!
My GT is A Taste Of Zen if anyone wants to go for a run.

I was actually wondering this too. Do you need to complete Ada's as well or is Leon/Chris/Jake enough for that?

I'm sure that it's all four...
I've been playing the whole game co-op with a buddy, so only really playing the story when we can both get on. I've only got two more chapters to go but I'd feel bad if I did them solo after all this time!

Even without Infi Ammo I'm slowly getting better in terms of time. My latest solo run (Helena) is 37 minutes. Still not great compared to the scores I'm seeing, but getting there.

Doing this Co-op will DEFINITELY improve your time. The both of you knowing what to do will make a whole lot of difference.
