    I take that back. The only reason it was so much easier is because the RNG was the same. This is still absolute anus. It amazes me how sets for such amazing games can be ruined like this. Hey uh isn't there such a thing as bonus sets? Maybe we should start using them so normies can "master" games.

    You'll need luck with the gas jets, especially in the great central hall. If you reach the final room within 48 seconds, it is possible to make a more cautious climb: >>https://youtu.be/8EImL40u2ws

    Do it after beating the game. That way it took me only 3 tries to get it since i was already familiar with the controls. Just start a new game after you beat the game.
    To make this less annoying: don't "finish" (meaning don't jump on the elevator) if you know you wouldn't make it in time. That way you can reload your save and pretty much try again (otherwise you will have to re-watch the intro again). For the Steam Jets.. taking it "slowly" is the better approach.

    it's the second achievement in the game because that's the chronological order, it is not that hard of an achievement if you refer to the video
    atma505 3 Feb 2023 15:57
    I did it without the fling, the main thing to keep in mind is the location of the steam so you're not running into them blindly. Try it outside of Hardcore mode with save states first to get a hang for each room

    this is purely based on luck and is not an achievement. really bad.

    Just cause people were wondering about the bug he does in one room in the video.

    This is insanely hard and makes me curse the game devs lmao

    "it is not that hard of an achievement if you refer to the video", oh yeah, I referred to the video and immediately got magically perfect luck, I had no idea that's how that works.

    Here you go, this video just took me about 10 minutes to make. This was my ninth try; I get hit by a couple things but the most important part is maneuvering the last room. You don't have to do any fancy tricks. https://drive.google.com/file/d/12GuPbIr37zKuu6PVF8nk8VJ-EGeeG7nt/view?usp=sharing

    What I like about this achievement is how it teaches me no useful skills, shows me nothing new in the game, and doesn't set me up with any advantages once I do pull it off. I love achievements that I would never want to achieve again - when they aren't impressive, fun or enriching, that's when you know they're good.

    Sabe a pior parte dessa conquista, é o fator RNG porque o resto é só correr, eu peguei a conquista rapidinho tanto que eu fiquei surpreso dela valer tanto ponto, dito isso eu não tiro a razão de quem não gosta dela até porque eu também não gosto de nada que envolva timer mas acho que não é tão ruim assim.

    this achievement sucks. only got it after getting some of the best smoke rng after maybe 2-3 hours of attempting this.

    Speedrun cheevos should be ilegal on regular sets.
    Totalaerus 22 Feb 2024 10:43
    I really hate this. I have to reconfigure my controls every single reset for some reason. Without savestates, this gets really tedious fast. I can't get the muscle memory down to run through the station. It takes too long to reset everything. The RNG of the steam and falling crap make this a nightmare. Why do I have to do this to prove I know this game? I don't want to do this. This sucks.
    marshallward 27 Feb 2024 18:58
    I finally got this, and without any speedrunning tricks, but it was rather unfun. Recommend either lowering the number (35 or 30 sec) or just removing it entirely.
