Legendary Goldeneye record destroyed by a legendary player!

June 24th, 2012 at 12:30am by Jimbo

June 20, 2012 – One of the most historic days in the history of the elite. It was just a few short days ago that former Goldeneye champion Bryan Bosshardt finally shattered the longest standing world record in the history of the elite. Runway Secret Agent 0:22 was achieved 4 years after Bryan’s first few serious attempts began in 2008.

Some facts about the history of Runway Secret Agent:

1. Karl Jobst got 0:23 on November 9, 2001. Since then it became the longest standing non-Duel record in the history of the Elite. The record stood for 3,876 days. 2nd in line is Dam Agent 0:53, achieved just under a year later.

2. 52 people in total lost a record – there are now only 42 total players with a Goldeneye world record.

3. David Monteith was the last player to get 0:23 as a record, Luke Pettit is the first player to get 0:23 as a regular personal record.

4. Often considered the token “easiest record” in the game, that title likely now belongs to Archives Agent 0:16 or Streets Agent 1:13 … depending on whom you ask.

5. 0:23 was achieved with the 1.2 control style with an original N64 controller, 0:22 was achieved with the dual-controller 2.x setup with a Superpad controller.

    You may have deleted my comment, thinking it redundant after adding the bit about the 2.x/superpad. However, you’ll find that I’m not the only one who thinks that this world record is completely retarded.

    I’m not disagreeing with you, I’ve lost 2 records thanks to 2.x and have always been against it since day 1. Notice why I don’t have Streets 1:13 :(

    Vintage post, Jimbo!

    Great job, Bryan – I don’t think 2.x takes away from this. I never was patient enough to even adjust to 1.2, so there’s credit due for adapting to the point where you can get WRs.

    Amazing. Hard to believe it was that long ago that Karl got 23. I remember that being big news :S Man, how old am I? is the home of the world's fastest GoldenEye and Perfect Dark speedruns.
