DOOM | tricks | E3M3 | elevator trick

Discovered by: Adam Williamson
Demo: e3m3-024.zip (26/10/1999)
Skills needed: quite precise running skills
Difficulty: hard

Description:
This is a pretty hard trick to do, and it roughly saves 2 seconds. As Adam Williamson writes, it consists of three parts which all have to be at least close to perfection otherwise the trick fails. A flying jump off the elevator, a good drop down the stairs, and a fast run back to the elevator. No wonder it's only been done in an UV speedrun as of now. It also helped the DOOM Done Quicker team to beat the original DOOM Done Quick time and even get a BFG on this map.
