Can someone explain what slow/fast door skips are? are you supposed to skip certain doors at certain times? does it slow you down if you dont skip at the correct time?


if you skip a ''fast door'' slowly, you lose time.
if you skip a ''slow door'' fastly, you lost time as well.

and trust me, thats a lot of time in a whole run
i'd say if you skip a slow door fastly you lose like 3s and the other way maybe 2s

I understand but sometimes I forget this things ))

Some doors load fast and some load slowly. You know that its a slow door if you skip the door animation quickly and you get a black screen for a bit. (This doesn't happen for fast doors).
- For the fast ones you can skip them instantly.
- For the slow ones it is faster to wait a bit then skip them. (You won't get the black screen) There is a specific timing to it, my advise is to watch top runners skip them. There is many throughout the run that you will learn with time.

Is it consistent run to run? I.E. are the same doors always fast or slow or can it vary?

Some doors change depending on the events. For example, if Nemesis chases after power station then there is 1 door in the save room after that, that becomes slow.


You should use the door skip splits that are in the resources. They helped me a lot. I still use them. The spits helped me get from a 52 to a 48 without any other major adjustments.
