Casual vs Speedrun in GTAV didn't cover ever single strat - some of them are too dangerous to use in the run. A "strat" is shorthand for strategy, like a specific route or action we take within the speedrun.

Some of these strats are new, and some have been known for a long time, like the Shootout with Franklin in Paleto Score, but we haven't needed to push hard to try them yet. Now that the speedrun is getting more optimized (meaning that the times are getting closer and closer together as people max out the game), all the little strats really add up. 2 seconds here 3 seconds there seems small for a 6 hour run, but this video alone has almost a minute of strats - it adds up.

Some of these strats like the ladder glitch came from viewers of my youtube or twitch. It's super awesome how we're saving time from the community, literally. Really enjoy trying stuff out, even when it means I'm jumping out of a blimp or flying into a house at 100mph during the speedrun.

San Andreas Speedruns are a work in progress still, i wanna do Casual VS Speedrun just right for that game. As of this upload I still have world record in the Classic% category, and am trying to improve it before burhac catches up :)

im really happy with how this video turned out, i've been wanting to make it for awhile but that whole "getting world record" thing delayed me a bit. if you like twitch things i do that here: https://www.twitch.tv/friendlybaron if you like twitter things i do them here: https://twitter.com/FriendlyBaron if you like youtube things, you are already here.

(if you reply to this comment i will read it but youtube makes it hard to reply to, if you want a reply then add a new comment to the video, not to this pin, thanks!)

I have no interest in actual speedrunning but God I love seeing people methodically abuse physics engines

Imagine if some absolute madman did all these time saving tricks successfully in one single run. It’s never going to happen but it would be absolutely glorious if it did

What if speedrunners use speedrun terms in their real lives?
"So, I decided to buy a meal from McDonald's instead of cooking at my house, it saves around half an hour. Also, you could skip eating for a whole day, it saves like 2 hours but it's risky and you may end up passing out"
