Over the weekend, Twitch streamer Boba streamed herself playing Solid metal gear for the first time ever, and after being attacked by some guards, she turned to fight them. At that moment she was accidentally pushed back through a locked door and discovered a new bug that could and has saved a lot of time MGS Speed runners let off steam with the time-saving options.
In Solid metal gear, you will eventually reach a section where you will have to climb and descend some communication towers, fight a helicopter, climb a series of stairs, and even abseil on a rope. That is much
In an interview with YouTuber Drakon Astron, Boba explained that she didn’t think much of it at the time. “I thought it was something someone probably did by mistake before.”
However, this was a big moment. Nobody had ever seen or documented this bug before and it seemed to allow Boba to skip a good chunk of the gameplay. Quickly, when the footage of the bug spread via Twitter and Reddit, the collective became Solid metal gear Speed running community lost their shit. It has been estimated by some that if this bug could be reliably replicated, It could save up to two or three minutes. And, Within a few hoursPeople had started replicating the bug some refer to as “Boba Skip”, even though Boba himself wishes his name was “Kevin”.
Now that the bug has been replicated, players have started hard theories and exploring how this bug works, what it means to the game, and whether it is workable elsewhere. Player in the MGS speedrunning Discord servers are testing other locked doors and inaccessible areas of the game where this “Boba / Kevin Skip” could be used to save even more time. If some of these areas are skipped by this bug, it is possible that Boba found not only a nice trick that will save you a few minutes, but a brand new strategy that could completely change the way people work Solid metal gear
Not bad for someone who doesn’t obsess over speed runs with the game every day and has actually never played it Solid metal gear In front. According to Boba, one speedrunner said she loved that she found the bug because instead of a longtime speedrunner, it was someone who was just having a good time MGS.
“The best part is that it’s not just any nerd who’s been into speed running Metal gears for about a hundred years, ”the speedrunner told her. “I just enjoy playing a video game and accidentally discovering this crazy thing.”
