DOOM 2 | tricks | MAP09 | switch trick

Post by fx »

Discovered by: Andreas "Anthe" Kren
Demo: (09/01/1997)
Faster demo: (06/01/2000) by Vaclav "Bolton" Kunes
Skills needed: coordination between switch/running
Difficulty: easy

An easy and reliable trick which saves around 5 seconds. It involves switching and catching a rising platform (compare E1M4 and MAP11). Since Anthe's demo, it has been widely used in UV and NM speedruns, as well as longer UV and NM runs. One trick which is easy to learn and easy to execute.
