Since times for some misc categories are getting optimised, i think everything should be getting documented better.
If you have any timesaves/potential timesaves, post them here.

Tag 60 & Tag 1 strats are not worth doing imo for now but tag 2 is consistent if you do it like me.

Tag 60 strat is easy, in my video I went a bit to the left, you're not actually supposed to go on that wall, go a bit to the right and it should be 100% consistent

Cool thread, I'm just starting to learn/route all collectibles so this will be helpful. I will try to contribute if I find anything, I'm always trying new things in my horseshoes runs.

I remember trying this exact thing and it didn't work out for me because i was too fast, but sure, someone else could try because i might have done something wrong.

You can switch controls to "classic" or whatever to get auto-aiming. You'll see it, no need for me to look up the name. 😃

I don't think autoaiming would be optimal, as I've tried it before on the XBOX version. Many times the reticle doesn't lock on correctly. There's also a bit of lag turning away from the tag, so i don't think that it would be as short as 29 frames.

This could be fixed by "getting good", but as of right now I believe free aim is vastly superior, as you can decide where the spraying of the tag actually goes.

Also reminder that I tried this on the XBOX version and XBOX 360 port, so it may be different on PC, I don't know whether faster or slower.

For tag 9 i found it better to use the hedge to slow down (rub against it)

For ryder, blowing up the car from the front is some frames faster (don't recommend it) and you also should stand closer to it than you would in any% because you don't need the hp anyways(would recommend it)

In tag 16 i started bringING the bike with me to the tag, that is slightly faster than parking away but it's more complicated to do it in a way which saves time ofc,

Generally you want to keep your bike as close to you as possible when spraying tags, because you can get on as you're about to finish spraying the tag.

Is it possible to configure the autosplitter to split at specific collectibles, e.g. tag 40, oyster 16, etc., not at each or when all of one set are complete. I'm using livesplit.

Finally getting started on all collectibles practice and this would make things easier.

For anyone attempting all horseshoes, first of all God help you, secondly me and tuxxor have both played around with a new strat. You can jump across the river from around Montgomery into LV using an NRG. This can potentially save a decent amount of time, but you will also have to be extra careful with bike health, it seems not riding the PCJ makes them spawn less frequently so if you lose your bike it's pretty much rip. This does nothing to help the hydra situation though so it's still a crapshoot to see if you can finish a run.

Can you explain what you mean, precisely? I feel like I understand but otoh that sounds absurd, so I need to ask.

For the PC atleast IMO autoaim is extremely useful.

By the way,I think these are slightly faster routes for Jizzy.(No promises)

@Patrick tuxxor told me that he didn't see as many PCJs riding around during his NRG attempts so he passed that info to me, usually they are not too hard to find. I don't know if there is any logic behind it or if it's just his perception. I haven't experiment with it enough to say there is a difference one way or the other.
NRG strat overall is awkward, the location you start isn't helpful for doing the news/cop heli strat so I don't think I will use it in the future anyway.
