3. following the video you can do a lot faster, at point 1:06, you can jump holding B from the middle platform directly to the save point ground, do a wall jump then wall jump again and you should be near top, saving seconds.

2. At the beginning just half second before the "Immediately" word appears, jump as the video, if you time right you can exit this area with 3'00'00 timer.1. At the pipes section, just hold L, B to run, and shoot just after the screen fade out.

0. At point 0.27 at the video, I found very easier to jump to left, above the door, then wall jump and stand on the middle ground, so jump right and follow the video.

Final Tip: To control the shinespark without making mistakes, just let go of all buttons, hold R and jump.

Consegui. Sinceramente, foi mais facil do que aparentou ser. Uma dica: treinem os pulos um pouco e criem um padrao para a ultima parte que nao tem erro.

fuck this cheevo, its bullshit, the time is way too tight, im never doing this in hardcore.

Took me over 50 tries and 3 days to get this. Theres a reason this achievement is rarer than even the barebones one. The key was mastering the final cave room, don't underestimate the amount of time you can save by not missing any jump and by optimizing your path. It can also make up for any other mistake you make along the way.

Essa foi difcil

After like 80 tries I finally did it with 2:00:01 .. hardest achievement I had to get to date.. this was a good set. Made me look up speed run strats for some of them
18 Sep 2021
is that not a little bit TOO close? Making an only mistake and you can begin again from the last save point^^ but this video is nice <3 professional speedrunner

this achievement is a pain. I hate getting into the ship.
24 Sep 2021
too specific dude, this kind of achievement should be on a bonus set or something

Raw brain output after 30 hours of: Bonking my head in the last climb room, not jumping through the door after the first shinespark, forgetting to jump when you see the 'I' of immediately in the escape message, failing a million billion wall jumps on possible winning paces, missing it by a third of a second, missing because I can't get into the ship, getting trolled by steam, bumping into those insect bastards, have to wait for mother brain kill that stupid Metroid. Yeah, I use to feel bad for that thing, now I can't wait for it to just die already. TLDR: The trial and error required to pull this off is a little too insane and I did not have fun getting this OR the Ceres Escape. I don't feel good about myself after getting this, I feel ashamed.

This achievement really should be in a bonus set lol, don't expect every player to be a speedrunner please.

The unskippable cutscenes is what really kills this, it would actually fun to try it otherwise
28 Oct 2021
2:00.64! This was way too close! And I agree, the worst part of this one is having to replay the final boss (and all the long cutscenes with it) every time you fail, it was fun to do but I wouldn't mind if this was moved to a bonus set

Esta conquista definitivamente eh mais facil que a "Quick Escape", pois os movimentos nao sao muito complexos e principalmente a RNG aqui eh bem menos perigosa! Apenas use um save state para treinar pelo tempo necessario, a estrategia do video eh totalmente acessivel a jogadores casuais (como eu mesmo) tenha todos os E-Tanks e mate a Mother Brain rapidamente numa estrategia kamikase apenas atirando sem se importar com seus danos!

Bruh, I had to practice this for like 2 hours. This was insane. There is definately no room for error here!
