DOOM | tricks | E4M1 | red key grab

Post by fx » 31.12.2014 12:38

Discovered by: Istvan Pataki
Demo: u4m1-055.zip (27/09/1996)
Skills needed: Having a long hand :) also you gotta experiment and understand it
Difficulty: easy

Description:
One of the best and most important key grabs in DOOM... this one made this level possible on NightMare! skill and made the speedrun much easier. Without this trick, E4M1 would be the bitchiest level of the whole game. (it still is...)
The working of this key grab is different from the others... running against the bars won't help... you gotta press yourself to the bars hard to get the key... It really feels as if you would reach through the bars with your hand, trying for the key (as in some old jail movies ;)
