I had a guard throw 9 grenades in a row at me in Aztec. It's captured and floating around in getfiles with the phrase "Grenade Obsession" in the filename.

7 bad cutscenes on Dam A in a row, followed by two good ones (one of which I got a 54) followed by 4 bad ones, then one good one, then 3 bad ones.  Fun times.

Also on streets I had valentin say that gay message that he's trying to help you, before he started saying any other message.  It was pretty much instant.

Oh I forgot, and this is probly the most obscure thing ive ever seen:

Once on S2 00 , the guard pulled a nade so Im like "Yes, finally!", I go to kill him and i get this insanely rare klobb boost, so i get boosted past the nade guard and absolutely @#%$.

Another time i had a insane first cam (like 5 bullets, but i didnt have a nade so i was continuing for the heck of it), and Im going to the 2nd cam, when suddenly I see this guard. To my disbelief he actually pulls a nade right in front of me so Im like "holy @#%$ @#%$", I try to kill him but the shots are laggy as @#%$ and i only get limb shots, so i cant even cash in on this insane luck. That really sucked.

I've had that instant "I'm trying to help you" message from Val when u first get there a ton of times, if you hit a certain spot on the wall. Then I fooled around with it to see if maybe he'd skip right to the last message becuz of just saying that, or to see if anything else could happen, but nothing would.

Anyways, THIS happened to me yesterday, I don't remember it ever happening before, and of course it was on a run where I took out all first 3 cams lol

Ok, I was on an egypt run, and the 3rd Baron froze up on me. ( vid is in my getfile)

I once got 3 straight grenades on cradle only to screw up every one of them.
Embrace the grind.

I know this might not be very rare, but the first Baron doesn't laugh if you shoot at the perfect time, I think it's kinda funny.

Bunker 1 A - When going for my 18, I Shot boris in the head nearly  perfectly, again, maybe it's not so weird, but it was a funny time for me.

7 Times in a row for the bad cinema on B2. XD

I know I have some others, meh.

This one is sort of a heartbreaker.  I suppose the rarity happens to be how I somehow didn't die to the first grenade, tantalizing my thoughts of 1:56, then shattering them with the second :/

Here's the vid!

I'm generally the king of obscure, so I'll have to dick around on other levels to make my magic happen ;)

I find it hard to beleive you got boosted in depot agent(im gunna assume you mean before the first gate) cause ive played that level many many times on all difficulties and did not get a boost, but ill take your word for it I guess.

Also dave about your surface 2 incident it gave me an idea, I get the feeling the first camera is considered hard for you guys(ive never speedran this level so I wouldnt know, but I do know when I play i gotta get within 10 feet of it just to see it to have a chance at hitting it lol) but why not try to get that guard to pull another grenade, cause it would let you do the first camera without all the nervousness since you skipped the first guard and go right to the camera and it would enable you to get a really good time if you take out the first camera pyscho style.

Unless of course its just something that will NEVER happen again, ie the guard wont be there, in which case im sorry for wasting everyones time with reading this but i am just trying to help out.

it's easy to get boosted in depot agent before the gate. I could make a video in 1 minute of playing which shows that.

Too many to remember but off the top of my head back in 98 or so, I shoot a grenade launcher that bounces off a wall and kills number 2 in the next hall, the others get so scared and are confused enough to both run into that hall into the explosion and die giving me 10 points and the game. lo.

See, now that @#%$ pisses me off. This run was 2002 or so and I had a horrible strafe line. Not like it was a potential 26 run or anything.

Facility
---
You know the first mine you throw to get a boost? The one you throw into the fast-opening door and blow as you get past the door and you get a boost - that mine.
I threw that mine but instead of landing on the door or on the wall it goes THROUGH THE ONE PIXEL between the door and the wall and lands on the other wall in the hallway. Now because of my instinct to delay the explosion I did and because of the distance of the mine throw itself I ended up blowing the mine when I was right beside it and I killed myself.


If I can find this on tape I will, it's really an amazing thing to see  :lol

I got boosted on Depot 00A once at the start with a good line.

Other then that, I've got nothing.

Trev blowing himself up was considered obscure back in the day.

It's wierd for me to see all the guys in a level to the same rollipoly like they're in a circus.

If you put too many devices on that dam cosole, a guy will come out of the first or second room without a weapon.

I threw a mine afar and it landed in midair because it landed on a black corner of some crate or chair that had blown up a little while sooner.

I've lived 5 times running the drones sub 1:50 on caverns 00A.  This is pretty obscure.  It hasn't happened to me in the last 25 hours of play I think.

In the archives I'm shooting in hallway left and right at guards with the pp7, I get the bunch of them pretty well.  After the smoke has cleared the crate blows up and kills me as if it's taunting me, but I'm sure someone dropped a grenade.

Died at the bottom of the ladder of the dam to one of the towers, and the guard looked like he was coming up and down really fast stomping on me.

in one of my many caverns agent runs i had a guard do something he has never done before. it was one of the guards at the first cat-walk who sometimes boosts you, and this time he ran straight into my line and pushed me down the stairs. i was so pissed off i threw the controller and just left bond cruising until he died.

A weird glitch:

I was just playing some Aztec when all of a sudden the music  change to something that sounded like an old weird 8-bit song. I tried moving Bond but it was like he was floating.
I looked at an enemy, who was just standing there, and his legs and arms started to go all over the place! I laughed and after a few seconds the game froze.

I know this is a 4 page bump, but I belive this is worth it. Also I didn't have a clue where else to post it...

It's the wierdest thing i've ever seen on Goldeneye. A mate of mine found it by chance, just playing around with cheats...

Anyway stick a remote mine on all monitors in the large room and 1 on each stem in the middle (Bunker 1 or 2). And detonate them. When thats done, fire a few rockets, grenade launchers, grenades, all mines everything. They just hover in thin air, and never explode! Crazy! :eek

A small glitch i noticed while TAS'ing:

After beating Surface 2 and got 49 i zapped through the time screen and sure there it was, Level: Surface Time: 0:49, Then for 1 frame that view changed to Bunker 2! It said Time: 0:49, Target: 1:30 :D

Don't think i've seen that on any other level so far.

Twice now, the second Baron has died so slowly, that lackadaisically going to the final room and then starting to run down the stairs, I've heard the explosion behind me. 1:05 A and 1:07 SA.

Since we're on the subject.  I should have saved that DLTK run where I shot into the large room first then went to the GG like in my recent run.  But that time the guard came up to the armor and scared the &*&^ out of me and killed me.  :eek

Vid wouldn't upload well so delete.
