Minecart Skip

Discovered by JM-MorenoMS (around April 2016)

Skip Minecart works on all 30 or 60 FPS versions, BUT there is another method of doing it only that it works ONLY on the Steam PC version (so it will not be shown in this guide).

1 - It can be done WITH or WITHOUT the Ditman Glitch as shown in the videos.

2 - You can do it on the second or third cart, because the scheme is the same.

3 - There are 3 images that give you an idea of ​​how to do it at first, using a reference point.

4 - The reference point is the position of the strollers, second or third, it is noticed that when the stroller starts to move and goes diagonally to the right and you notice the affection making a V shape as shown in image 1 .

5 - When he makes this turn, the "Jump Over" disappears (this is the moment you have to prepare yourself for the inputs)

6 - Take a step back (this step will make the "Jump Over" appear again in the middle of the turn) and keep pressing the button to jump to another cart.

7 - When Leon is doing the jump animation to another cart you have to drop the D-pad and the Analog until it will clip to the floor and you can run on the tracks.

8 - Doing the skip without the Ditman Glitch is recommending doing it on the second cart, because you have more time to position yourself and it seems to be easier.

9 - There is an RNG that can happen in the third cart, that when the cattle are run over by the cart they can drop some item and you accidentally collect it at the same time you try to skip, if anything appears just collect and jump to the other cart simultaneously.

3 - Run towards the pillar, turn 180° and take a few steps back;

4 - Aim and move left (no quickturn);

OoB Easy Method (Krauser Skip NG/NG+)

This OoB can happen three things: it falls to the bottom floor, it falls but deep, or it falls forever (which is a softlock). But I have discovered a new method using the knife.
