I found this new skip that lets you get over the gate without using the 2 levers to activate the power to open it.

Currently it's inconsistent and isn't viable in full game runs. However, if a consistent setup would be found it should save a decent amount of time since you don't have to kill the enemies and unlock the gate.

I finally found a way to skip the Ramon boss! It's actually not too hard, and should be consistent enough to use in full game runs.

If you get first try, and compare it to an ideal boss fight, it saves ~1 minute and 40 seconds. The drawback is that you don't get an upgrade, since the boss fight is skipped, though that shouldn't matter too much.

Ramon boss fight skip. Nice one, man! Slowly this run stops sucking.

Thanks! I'm going to try find some more skips, so if you want me to look into something just let me know.

Found a small new skip at the beginning of Aspari Extraction. It is hard, so I don't think it's viable in a full game run. It saves ~5 seconds, so it's definitely worth using in an IL run.

I thought there were no more skips to discover, but thankfully I tried a little more and found this! It saves ~9 seconds and skips all enemy triggers, except the last one. Unless it can become consistent, it will only be used in IL runs.

I found a way to do an earlier "Ramon Boss Skip". You can do the skip much earlier with this method and it's also much easier to fall right onto the cutscene trigger. It saves quite a decent amount of time.

It might be a bit harder to get this one but I'm not sure.

Around two months ago I had theorized about a potential skip to get on top of the roof, skipping having to zig zag through the level normally, but I never found anything that worked. Now that I came back to the game do some IL's I decided to try again, and found this! It saves ~35 seconds and should be viable in full game runs, with a little practice.

I've theorized about this skip a long while ago, but couldn't find any way to make it work. After seeing SuicideMachine trying to find new skips on his stream, I decided to try this one again and it didn't take long before it worked! It saves ~17 seconds and might be even consistent enough to do in full-game runs.

I decided to try look for some more skips on this level and thought that the best spot to do so is after the roof skip. Once up there I tried out a lot of different things and eventually found a way to skip the slow vent section! It saves ~12 seconds and isn't hard to do, but since there's a risk of dying it's probably only viable for IL runs.

I was thinking that maybe you could get out of bounds from the stairs at the start and eventually found this slightly faster event skip. It saves ~0.7 seconds, but is much harder than the normal way, so it's only viable for IL runs.

I found an elevator skip on Burning Tower. This saves ~26,7s! Super easy and free!
