Arrow Thames Wharf In 17 Seconds (Glitchless Speedrun World Record, Performed By Me)



Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87osFujfMhg

Despite the fact that I'm not known for speedrunning, I have managed to produce a world record speedrun for Thames Wharf, Tomb Raider 3.

The glitchless speedrun world record for this level was 19 seconds. Quite a lot of people have successfully completed this level in 19 seconds, and I believe that they all used the same route. From observing the level it occurred to me that there might be an alternative route which would save time if you were to pull it off quickly enough.

I did experiment with the route and my findings were that the route is available to you and is faster than the route that all of the speedrunners have been using. From using the route I managed to glitchlessly complete Thames Wharf in 17 seconds, which is an improvement of 2 seconds from the previous world records of 19 seconds.

Given that I'm not a speedrunner, I suspect that known speedrunners will use this route and improve on my time by a small margin. Even though I did very well in this level by my standards, I doubt that I achieved perfection with speed, timing and positioning. Known speedrunners will likely be more optimal when speedrunning this level using the route that I used.

I don't expect this speedrun to hold down as the world record for long, but I'm confident that it will result in speedrunners completing this level even more quickly once they are aware of the route that gets used in this video. This is something that will be highly satisfying for me; it would be satisfying to see speedrunners take inspiration from this video, and it would be satisfying to see this level get completed even more quickly than 17 seconds. I am genuinely intrigued as to how quickly this level can be completed by using the route demonstrated in this video.

An alternative route I made, 38 seconds to finish. I always like this route.

I'm sorry that my video didn't go down well for you. I'm sorry and disappointed.

The hospital network that I'm using wouldn't allow me to follow that link.
