1999 Speed Run Guide

Hello everyone! I was bored and decided to run through 1999 mode while I wait for BL2's level cap increase. I figured some may not want to take the slow and steady approach to this difficulty so I figured I would share this. Now at first glance it may seem like you are just praying to not be hit but this is not true. Enemies follow a very predictable pattern that once you learn a route you can manipulate them in your favor.

here ya go guys, my full 1999 run. There are a few edits throughout the video and I will add annotation later explaining them. Also be sure to like/comment, it took quite a bit of time to do this and if you have any questions I will gladly answer them.

Overkill - Entry to Hall of Heros(Wounded Knee side) - You can reload this checkpoint(after finishing Peking side) until you get it.

Winter Shield - Return to the Gondola - You can reload this checkpoint(you need to activate the Gondola before the door will open) until you get the gear you need.

Get this Borderlands shit out of here, there's already a sewer for that awful game somewhere else. That's the last game I want to be reminded of when I think of Bioshock.

Ouch, all he did was show his excitement for another game, dial it down. Breaking Bad is overrated.

Yeah, what were you thinking? Didn't you know some people don't like Borderlands? And that some of those people have such tightly wound panties that they freak out over even mentioning it?

I pretty much only pick up infusions if they are close or on the way and as far as weapons go I run pistol for the first section but swap out for an RPG/whatever. I rely on Elizebeth to restock my RPG. One note is that Medkits, Salt, Infusions, Weapons, and lockpicks are not random and are in set locations. The only random part is scavaging bodies for ammo and stuff however Crows will always have Salt/Medkits. Anyways enjoy the show, I will try and finish this by Tuesday.
Sweet fucking heyzooz thank you Bahroo! This as always will come in handy and as usual, you're bossing a game like a badass. Why am I not surprised. Welcome back dude! Haven't seen you in a while!

1. its called speedrunning, not rushing.
2. why would you want to "rush" through a game as good as this? there is so much to enjoy, what a waste.

Did the guy with the Halo avatar just use the word overrated? I'm laughing too hard to formulate a response.

I've actually never seen the show, just figured I'd get a pissy response from saying it. I'm a regular prophet.

1) A speedrun usually has some type of goal outside of just finishing quickly, like an achievement or leaderboard position. This is just a guide to go through the game without wasting time or getting collectables and possibly avoid some enemies. There is no proper title for something like that. He could have called it the 'supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' run and it wouldn't matter. Who cares.

2) He is clearly aiming this towards those going for a second playthrough. Hence why he specified just 1999 mode. He didn't title it 'rush through every difficulty guide'. Just through the wording of his strategies, you can tell he has played it quite a bit already.

Edit: ninja'd.

Wrong.

Rushing
Quote:
A sudden quick movement toward something, typically by a number of people: "there was a rush for the door".
Speedrunning
Quote:
A speedrun is a play-through, or recording thereof, of a whole video game or a selected part of it (such as a single level) performed with the intent of completing it as fast as possible, optionally under certain prerequisites, mainly for the purposes of entertainment and competition.
If you are any type of a classic FPS gamer you would know rushing is just going through as fast as possible while ignoring most of everything, while speedrunning is a method to meticulously plan out each action in the game resulting in a perfect result. It's a science.

Glad to see you never improved since my time away. Here I thought I could have just had some fun with this community but of course people like you always seem to ruin things.

Anyways my rushspeedmovefastskipstuff 1999 run is going great and 9-11 will be up shortly.

What you are doing is not called a rushspeedmovefastskipstuff run, please get it right. It's a SPEED RUN. :P

I really don't like calling this a speed run. I know that is what I am doing it's just I have done one for Borderlands 2 and those take weeks,months, sometimes even years of preparation. They require full knowledge of every item, every flaw, glitch, every everything. This is something I am putting together to show a simple way to run through the game with the smallest amount of fighting.

I just feel this is not up to the standards I have set for doing a true speedrun. I might do one in the future but for now I just call it rushing even if that is incorrect.

Also iirc you still can't change thread titles, which is annoying.
