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.
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.
