Hi, I've got a question, will I come across the final gun easily because I'm almost at it and don't want to pick up by accident because of autosave so can someone tell me how to avoid?

You don't actually need to go into the room where the gun is, keep an eye on the map when making your way towards it and then follow the bath to the <!> below the gun.

Yeah, because all achievements should be easy so that no one feels left out they don't have 100% without really working hard at something. Get real.

thanks for the guide.
If you point me in the right direction, I'm down to the part where I want to get into the exploding room and the map blue lines me to the gun. I can't get across the large gap just above where the blue line starts.
I have 11%.
I've wasted 40mins at this and I have already done 100% complete, you'd think I'd know how to do it :P

update:
I had to get Thrust II to get past the jumps I was stuck on. I'd still love to know how to do it with just 11%.

I could well be clumsy or unlucky, but how the hell do people get to the exclamation mark (when it wants you to get the KEY COMPONENTS) without having either the hookshot or the tripple jump ability?

I can't for the life of me get there at the moment...

Edit:
In case it is unclear, this is after Claire heads off in the jeep and I have 11% as per the guide...

Final Edit:
GRRRR, just after I make this post I see where I am going wrong... A completely different route (via the inside) seems to work

Try taking a big run from the room on the right, then double jump the gap.

Start a new game and follow the guide. You probably cant get it under 13% now.

I just followed the story and made sure not to pick up and upgrades that werent required, got 11% but couldn't get up to the top (was on right side outside) so instead of going through the complex I went back and got the hookshot, got up there went and finished game with 12%

just did my 3% run also, have to say it was pretty easy

Just got the achievement and that makes them all.

I ended with 12%. There was one platform I could not get on without the triple jump. When I got back with it, I realized I could of done some stuff with foam maybe. Oh well, I got it done and I'm happy.

yeah i just wanted to say that i cannot get to the exploding room second play through right after clare runs off says to get remaining components. i am guessing you need the hookshot or triple jump to even get up there i have 11% there is like a big wooden dock and no way to get around with out on of them upgrades also if i had unlimited foam that would solve my problem but only at level 27.

person with wind tunnel problem go back up elevator to top floor and blow up fan power supply with missles the come back it will be off.

just got acheivment 1hour 45min 11% items one thing is golden guns are pretty much a must i say the inertia element gun kills everything so fast even bosses and to have no pick ups like health and armor that gun makes it much easier even on casual with 200 health sometimes you get overwelmed so many enemy on screen. hope my posts help.....

I got a problem. I got the missiles wich put me at exactly 13%
I thought i was good, but now im stuck. I saved the girl and now it tells me to go to the big dome thing, where the bad guy activates the explosion, BUT, i cant get there. All the ways leading there require either double jump or hook shot, so i cant get there, and if i pick anything up, it puts me at 14%

Am i missing something, or is there an error in the guide?

Just got my Minimilast achievement and i was so lucky, my mistake i managed to pick up two collectables, so i was only able to get the Scuba mask, armour, boost pack, and the friction damperner, it was so hard to get to the big compute place because i hadn't got enough boost to manage to make it from one gap to another, at the end, i managed to use all the foam i had, (4), make a little bridge connected to the one end of the place i need to jump, and from the other side, i just managed to grab onto the foam before it disappeared, so yes, it proves you can complete with game with about 10 % or less of the items..

You probably did it wrong, I got 12% by following the blue line and only getting those, then when it came to getting the upgrades I only got the hookshot which brought me from 11 to 12% and that allowed me to get to the exploding room

A simple way of explaining/doing Minimalist:

1.) Follow the blue line until you save Claire from the 2 guards after getting the missile upgrade.

2.) While following the blue line, do not pick up anything other than what the blue line is leading you to, with the exception of 1 health upgrade and 1 gold bar that will be unavoidable since they are directly in your path.

3.) After you have saved Claire (see #1), ignore the blue line and go straight to the blue exclamation mark where the room that self-destructs is. Do not pick up any of the remaining suit pieces or the last gun.

This will complete the game with 12%. It is recommended that you do this after reaching level 20 and have completed the game at least once so that you are more familiar with where everything is and have more experience with scaling walls and reaching high-up places using nothing more than double-jump. It will also help if you have collected all the gold in previous run through so that you can grab the gold shotty at the beginning of the game.

If you cannot figure out how to get to the blue exclamation mark after saving Claire, you either suck or need to reach level 20 and look closer at the map for an alternate route then what you are trying. You do not need triple-jump or the hook-shot to get there.

"Minimilast"???

This one was actually really easy, I finished on 11% for items in about 2 hours.

To anyone that hasn't realised yet (although you should've, it's been mentioned enough times in this thread), you don't need the hook-shot or the triple-jump.

I have a feeling that the two speedrun "achievements" won't be so easy...

Just restarted the game and hoping to get this achievement. One quick question though, when do you get the full map? I'm level 20 and the map is not fully revealed to me.

Are you on a higher difficulty? I'm pretty sure "insane" hides the map sections... not sure about the difficulty below that.

I just finished the game with 10%. I avoided picking up the pistol (just took the Golden Intertial Element). So if you're having troubles with this, that's a way of leaving a percent more to pick up Health upgrades (or any upgrade off course).

I didn't pick up any upgrades (except for the unavoidable Golden Bar), or any of the last Suit Upgrades.

So, if I use my Golden Intertia Element to wreck havoc on everything that attacks me ever, it won't count towards my minimalist?

And what happens if I pick up the real Inertia Element on accident, will that add towards the percent in a way that prevents me from getting this?

Picking up anything except golden guns will add to your percentage, even if it doesn't seem to. This is because there are about 130 items scattered about.

From what I could see, you could also skip the gun before the Inertial Element but after the Carbine, but my dumbass walked over and picked it up, so I'm not sure. I finished the whole run with about 11% or so, skipping the pistol was a help, and the only thing I died on was attempting the huge shortcut under the water. I figured, hell with it, and went on ahead with the game, wondering how tough it would be to get to the end. In reality it was so much easier because I wasn't exploring and trying some of those freaky jumps or blowing everything up to get all the gear.

Getting level 30 helps a bunch too, a few times I cheated and made a foam bridge or pillar to stand on. Infinite grenades and rockets was not needed with that golden shotgun. Kinda regret grabbing the golden shotgun, I might of thought about doing it with a weaker gun. Now I need to go through again getting 100% stuff and working level 50 and I can chalk this up to another complete game. This guide helped out a lot, thanks.
