New world record set for beating Halo on Legendary difficulty

Posted on May 6, 2014 AT 03:31am

Andrew “goatrope” Halabourda has set a new speed run world record for completing Halo: Combat Evolved on Legendary difficulty.

The previous record, held by Halabourda, clocked in at 1:41:15, but he managed to shave two minutes and 18 seconds off his time, finishing the run at 1:38:57. Now there are quicker runs, with the lowest time coming in at 1:20:51, but these are multiple segment runs completed by more than one person. Halabourda’s was a single run, which you can check out above.

The quickest that anyone has ever completed Halo: Combat Evolved is 1:19:55, by LePhoque, but that was on Easy.

If you’re interested, Halabourda has shared a few tips on how to shave time off a run, and when you should fight enemies or avoid them.
