DOOM 2 | tricks | MAP09 | switch trick

Post by fx » 31.12.2014 11:24

Discovered by: Andreas "Anthe" Kren
Demo: lv09-121.zip (09/01/1997)
Skills needed: coordination between switch/running
Difficulty: easy

Description:
An easy and reliable trick which saves around 5 seconds. It involves switching and catching a rising platform (compare E1M4 and MAP11). Since Anthe's demo, it has been widely used in UV and NM speedruns, as well as longer UV and NM runs. One trick which is easy to learn and easy to execute.
