Watch as speedrunner Kungkobra demolishes Fallout: New Vegas in a ridiculous 19:52. Damn.
Some of the tricks used in this playthrough include:
Much of that might sound familiar if you’ve been keeping up with previous New Vegas world records, but what’s new here is the usage of what Kungkobra calls the “McCarran skip.” You can see it pretty early in this run, as it is a method that allows the player to enter the strip fast.
My favorite part, however, is watching Kungkobra murder both Benny and Mr. House within the first ten minutes of the run. It normally takes me that long just to decide my SPECIAL stats! Nevermind that the game keeps trying to remind Kungkobra to go talk to Sunny Smiles when he’s clearly nearing the end game, heh.
