For everybody who does the mackerel run, how long on average does it take to catch the mackerel? I just did two runs, one was 18.25, the other was 37.43. Am I just really unlucky? Or does everyone have a lot of runs like that?


Sometimes you can get them first try but catching them in general is only just above 4% chance:

Also, most of our runners are very active on the NieR: Automata speedrun discord, which you can find by going to or clicking the "Discord" link in the sidebar to the left of this writing.
