Factorio Speedrun Video Guide - Steelaxe%

By CobaiCobai Last updated

This guide will help you understand some of the fundamentals of Factorio speed runs and walk you through one of the quickest speed run categories in the game.
The Steelaxe% speed run is good way to introduce yourself to speed running without worrying too much about committing to long games and months of planning and running.

This is my first attempt at a Speedrun guide.
I created this guide because the most up to date video guide I could find is now over 2 years old!
I really hope it helps players new to speed running achieve their first time to submit to speedrun.com!

This video was recorded in March 2021 and uses the latest version at the time - 1.1.26

For a more in depth dive into this Speedrun and layout, I recommend reading the guide created by the current world record holder (lhaxq) which can be found at https://www.speedrun.com/factorio/guide/kczn3
