‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’ Speedrunner Admits Fake Run

At the most recent SGDQ 2022 speedrunning marathon, Russian speedrunner Mekarazium had the chance to compete in Metal Gear Rising Revengeance.

The majority of the speedrunning is done in person at the Minneapolis venue. The run by Mekarazium was one of the event’s uncommon internet runs, nevertheless.

Mekarazium’s run has been removed from the Games Done Quick YouTube account as a result of this admission, however, it is still accessible on the Twitch VOD of the competition.

The Blade Wolf section of the run, by the runner’s own admission, was made up of multiple previously recorded segments that were edited together to make the run appear seamless.

I submitted to the committee have I made any mention of it. The run was going to be in real-time, but after swapping the saves, I changed my mind.
