Not much can be said about it, maybe just that speedruns are totally the opposite of my play style:
- ITYTD, which I usually do not touch;
- Time under 30 mins, while I usually play for hours;
- Not killing everything :P ;
- Skipping special levels (maybe I should just consider going into Chained Court for 5 Berserks);
- Skipping some of levels when there were stairs nearby;
- Ignoring uniques;

And I actually got Untouchable Badge, it was not that bad :) .

I like the ballistic shield. First time it was used against Cybie (while I was killing it with a mere shotgun), then Spider Mommy. I was literally spamming F button and watching my armor / HP go down. Not possible to repair, but definitely worth using.

A question to all speedrunners: what are your tactics to have a successful speedrun? I am looking at Silver and Gold Badge and it I think I will have to have a good plan before that...

 153 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 131 of those were killed.
 And 5 couldn't handle the stress and committed a stupid suicide.

 17 souls destroyed the Mastermind...
 1 sacrificed itself for the good of mankind.
 14 killed the bitch and survived.
 2 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

I appreciate everyone has different playstyles, but why didn't you go Scout for speedruns? Stairsense is almost a necessity for speedrunning.
In terms of tips, I play melee for speedruns, because melee avoids spending time aiming/thinking and allows a little leeway in going fast.
The Anomaly is pretty much asking for a phase device to be used.
Homing phases are for mazes/when you're going to die.
CC is a necessity (if you're following my melee idea, because a zerker is nothing without his chainsaw).
Special levels where the exit is next to the entrance are always nice, but only if their stairs spawn closer to you than the actual next-level stairs.
Not sure if partial wins count for speedrun badges, but if they do, as soon as you enter Dis, just use that nuke and hold down .

You've got the general idea down, not killing everything and ignoring the RNG's inevitable ten-uniques-a-game behaviour when you want to speedrun.
Hope this helps :)

I wanted to get MAc and a bit of powerups' duration :) .

And I calculated that I will be able to finish it without sensing stairs, which proved to be true :P .

The first game I did for speed was a scout with I think hellrunner, brute, brute, zerker, then more hellrunner. Get chainsaw and stack those berserk packs. Final time was 8:04 i believe.

Ye my best speedrun was like ~6:40. I was a scout and had brutes, berserker, hellrunners. Just run towards the stairs ignoring most but the inevitable things and youre done. Oh and always do chained court and without hell arena. youll have more berserker packs and you also have the chainsaw. also if you come across a bulk mod apply it to your chainsaw. its always nice to have a bit more dmg.

As far as I can understand this, it depends mostly on Berserker, which is what I tried to avoid.
However, I guess in future I will have to stick to it :| .
