There have been several amazing feats by gamers in recent years, but one that goes by the name Rydou has set a new record for completing Fallout: New Vegas that record was 27 minutes.
It is important to note that there were some unique tactics and glitches used in order for Rydou to accomplish this record. He skips the dialogues at the beginning of the game by quick saving and quick loading, and the game is set to very easy mode. Furthermore, he also appears to be using a speed boost glitch in which he outlined in the description of the video.
First, for those who aren’t familiar with the game, I skip dialogues at the beginning by quicksaving/quickloading. Also, I’m playing in very easy, that explain why the damage received are pretty low. Also, at the speed I’m running, I don’t actually receive that many damages anyway.. This is the default difficulty used by the community.
About the new glitch :
It’s a glitch re-discovered recently by 5exual_tyrannosaurus, we heard about it before, but never knew how to trigger it until now.When you cripple your leg, you get slower, and then when you heal it, you’re supposed to get your speed back. By quickloading just before getting crippled, you can confuse the game into giving you the speed back without actually ever losing it ( because we don’t actually really get crippled). So you get a huge speedboost, and walk at 165% of your walking speed.This speedboost can appear in two versions : One which is “breakable”, it will last as long as you don’t quickload again.
The second one is “unbreakable”, you can quickload or load a game without losing it.The glitch is pretty hard to get, because it need a precise timing, which can vary with your configuration, framerate, and other thing that we probably don’t know about yet.
While it was a glitched run the amount of time that was taken to complete it surely was the new record and the gamer Rydou has also a version where he is not using the exploit but clocks in about 32 minutes which is still too long to be considered record breaking.
