: Maybe I just suck at the game, but judging from my initial experimentation
: even a normal TC run will be full of entertaining ways to fail. I think M1
: on TC is significantly harder than the sequels, especially because the
: first few levels are much more brutal.

Absolutely. Even the very first encounter is harder than most of M2. And it's all because the magnum doesn't stop the Fighters from smacking the player.

The end of Bigger Guns Nearby is very annoying as it is best to trigger the Compilers and then run back out and take them down with fists, but occasionally there is a Fighter that spawns way back and comes all the way down there to screw you up. And then the start of Never Burn Money is horrible with all those Wasps. The secret recharger comes in very handy.

Defend THIS isn't too bad and you get a lot of ammo on it. The start of Couch Fishing is awful with very few safe places to run. Then of course there's the pit on Cool Fusion, which is totally crazy on TC - recommend getting the TOZT on Napalm Chicken.

I thought I was going to say it's not too bad after that, but it just isn't true! The arena with the crazy slow door on Blasphemy, most of Bob-B-Q, the traps in Shake Before Using..., the lava run or grenade jump on Fire Fire..., the corridor run of Habe Quiddam plus the exploding BoBs, most of Pfhor Your Eyes Only, in fact most things with Enforcers lol.

Yeah, a speedrun would be quite a thing to see even with just those examples of incredibly hard encounters. And of course an all terminal run would be stuffed up by the pit one on Napalm Chicken and the secret one on Welcome to the Revolution, if not others as well. Good luck!
