Taktikal Zef (Player 1, left side)
Ozu (Player 2, right side)

This run is executed in an offline session of the unpatched Xbox 360 version of the game. The unpatched 360 version allows the shield glitch which is essential to the run.

-Type05 (ACOG and rifle scope)
-Desert Eagle (extended clip)
-Incendiary Grenade
-Flashbang Grenade (Ozu uses Smoke Grenades instead in Act I)

-Shield Glitch: Attempt to go into cover on a wall while changing to the shield weapon. Then move to another position, equip another weapon and press the cover button. This will cause you to warp to a spot that has the same horizontal position as the first position, with the vertical position and player orientation as the second position.
The reason this works is because the game has no animation for going into cover while equipping the shield.
-Iframes: Whenever a player spawns in after a death, he is invulnerable for a few seconds. In this time he is immune to bullets and grenades.
-Momentum: Continuing through a checkpoint area without stopping can result in certain enemies not spawning or behaving properly, often causing them to disappear as one approaches their trigger. Reloading from the checkpoint will cause all of the triggers to function normally and cause more enemies to spawn.
-Mike-Jung Warps: Bishop tells Mike and Jung to hold at the beginning of an area and then goes sufficiently far, then orders them to perform an action (diffusing a bomb, lining up on a door), causing them to warp to P1's location.
-Cutscene Invincibility: Self-explanatory
-Shoulder Bump: Both players line up on an outward-facing corner. One player peeks out from the corner in a crouched position, the other player peeks out from the corner in a standing position, then releases the cover button. This moves the second player onto the first player's shoulder.

-Timing begins when the message
appears on the screen and ends the instant Nowak is shot and killed.
-Splits are divided when the screen fades to black/white at the end of each act.

-Player 1 must be alive for a checkpoint to actually be triggered (even though the message will display if Player 2 reaches it first).
-Holstered weapons don't affect movement speed/ sprint capacity.
-If sprint is depleted, actions such as throwing grenades/reloading/opening doors do not lose time.
-Turret enemies, shield enemies, and rappelling and fast roping enemies can't be flashed.
-The best way to use the Desert Eagle is to briefly stand still right before shooting an enemy (stutter stepping).
-Opening the Loadout menu in the chopper switches the player's weapon to their primary weapon.
-Each enemy spawns with the same weapon every time.
-Enemies can shoot and kill the player even if their animation does not show them pointing the weapon at the player.
-Flashbangs blind players for much less time than they blind the enemy. An enemy will always be fully flashed if at all affected by a flash bang.
-Enemies can cause other enemies to become aggroed.


Nothing to do in the briefing room except position Zef so Monroe walks towards him, shortening the distance between him and the trigger which causes Nowak to move.

Zef switches to incendiary grenade. Ozu kills two enemies to allow Zef to set up first sheild glitch of the game. This allows the players to skip the hostage room into the beginning of 1-2, and this prevents many enemies from spawning.

Because the hostage room was skipped, there are no enemies in this scene until the very end.

Team fights their way through the next area so Zef can tell Mike and Jung to look at the security monitors. Zef uses a shield glitch that teleports him behind doors that only open after the cutscene.
