Grrrr...

First run... evil. Managed to do it legit five times and I swear to God and all that is holy that I missed it by a fraction of a second. So I said, "what the hell" and did the suicide dive. First try.

Second run... evil to the nth degree, gorramit. Thirty some tries to get it. Second time I made it to the platforms I got it. Word of advice to those trying it... do not keep reloading when you die. Seeing as it takes you back to the checkpoint before the bridge you will spend so much time reloading and doing the lifts over and over. I decided to do this after about 25 tries and got it soon after.

From where you die, go through it to the end then reload. Next time maybe you'll die later, keep going through it to the end again. Reload. Rinse and repeat until you have the timing down and know the traps.

Worked for me... maybe it will work for you.

All I can say about my new achievement... shiny.

Im thinking the game doesnt let you get the achievement if you progress into the story and save after the achievement point.

Because I saved right at the end, went back and tried the second run, I did a flawless run didnt stop for 1 second, every moment I wasnt using shadow i was jumping/rolling.
Everyone says you have plently of time, well I did it as fast as you can imagine and still nothing.


Okay I think I know what the problem is. Im supposed to be doing this on the second run through the refinery.

How to get it...

I used this video for reference and i saved a bit before were lara starts in the video, my purpose was to train cause I've been hearing rumors that if you die in the middle of the trial you had to rerun the hole thing again, but during my training i completed that segment without dying and I got the achievement.

My point is just save a bit further back from were lara in the video starts if you die reload it and you should be just fine.

There's a catch dough you have to be as fast as the guy from the video...

I found the first speed run quite easy and used the suicide trick to get the achievement.

I really struggled with the second run, I died well over 20 times to the pistons, specially the third one which was so fast I couldn't get my timing right. It wasn't until I started jumping to get past it that I was able to eventually finish the run.

I can confirm that you can save the game after the chime you hear upon entering the tunnel. It is marked out by a grey stone outline with lettering on it. If you save there it reloads you into the tunnel when you load the game and it was from here that I was able to finish the run and get the achievement.

Good Luck all, this one was a pain!

Its may 2010 and i can confirm this achievement glitch was not fixed with the updates, just make sure you save at the checkpoint before the two floating platforms you have to jump onto, and remember this is the second time you enter this room.

When I did it I noted there was a checkpoint near the eitr pool on the right, before you hang a left to get to the first set of pistons. I saved there then I did the run and I got the achievement, maybe you can all try form that point and make it?

I finally got them yesterday, first one wasn't bad though I had to do it about 5 times to register....second one was bad, I saved on top of the platform and it took about 10 tries to get through only I didnt get the achievement. Did it 4 more times and still didn't pop.

Luckily I had a save from slightly before at the pillars and got it done finally....I had to do that twice for it to register too.

Yes, it was hard. I made first speedrun with shortcut. But second one was much harder. I had problems with crushing walls and second pair of pistons.
But when I finally passed it without dying I get this achievement.

I'll quite happily stick with 1000 on TRU, the platforming in this game was terrible. Speed running would do my head in.

I can confirm this save point. (at tunnel entrance maked by a gray rock in the floor.) I just got the achievement by saving at the checkpoint right as you enter the tunnel. You dont have to save at the transformer and run through each time.

Ok, this speed runs are really pain in the ass. I'm in the refinery for the 2nd time and I'm trying to get the first speed run achievement.
I know the start point and I tried to jump on the right and die to get it but it still didn't unlock.

Anyone knows how fast you must be?


If I have problems with the 1st achievements I wonder how long I'll do the 2nd.

Never mind. I just got the 1st achievements after I have no idea many tries.

i really don't get why such achievements. the smashing wall is killing me. if i try the smashing wall from a checkpoint just before it i manage to do it. but if i try for achievement i get killed so quickly.

the problem is that i don't know if the achievement is really timed or does it really just mean to finish it without dying. cause it would be really easier if it would be the later. slowly get pasted all the traps

anyone?

Omg. Yes this worked perfectly. I even made a mistake and drop down a vein due to SP being gone, was still able to make it. 2 evenings I spent after kids went to bed on this. Thank you!! ....now on to the last run.

THE best method overall to do it. So a big thank you. I can confirm for today, the achievement still unlocks this way online with update.

Got it on my first visit at the Refinery!
