Thread title: 
Im new to low percents, and i was wondering what all items i get for 9% on easy. Also, is it the same for normal?
always move fast
morph ball, missiles, bombs, varia (if you choose not to get it, it gets added anyway when you get the fully upgraded suit), powergrip, ice beam, 3 unknown items.

and its the same for normal.

note: make sure to activate the ziplines in kraid, because you cannot get out otherwise without a spineshark, which you cannot do.

missiles


Just the first tank and thats all?
everybody knows it's true
That's what makes low percents hard.
One shall stand, one shall ball.
Personally, the lack of missiles isn't what makes low% hard, it's the lack of E-Tanks that gets me....

missiles make up for lack of energy. if I were to cut any items out of my run, it would be the energy tanks.

Heh. Other way entirely for me. I love using the beam, and against bosses, Id much rather be able to take a few hits than lower him to half health in 3 seconds and then die.
I definitly go for missiles, all you have to do is avoid getting hit. Mecha Ridley my only problem, cause its hard to kill him fast enough, though on 9% (or 10% on Hard) youve no choice, but its not to hard.

BTW, dont do low% on easy, because the endings always the same, and not to many people are impressed by it.
Since he's* new to low%, perhaps he wants to try on Easy first?  No one says he has to do that every time, or even that he has to try and impress people.  Seems more of a personal goal.

*or appropriate pronoun
I was just letting him* know that there wasnt much of a point, and anyways i did my first low% with 12% on normal.

*or appropriate pronoun, sry had to do it. Laughing

I was thinking more in terms of 9-10% since in that case you can't take many hits and you have a max of five missiles. In that context my earlier post probably makes more sense.

In most runs I agree that E-Tanks are expendable, I don't grab a whole lot of them in my runs.

Very nice. Its almost like you know me. ^^

I did 1% on Fusion and i know how hard it is. Im just being careful here because I can.
(user is banned)
im doing a only-morph ball playthrough in ZM (unmorphing for unpassable blocks), and im after you get your suit back. I go through the area in morph ball, then get owned by pie-rates.

How do i bomb them enough so that i dont die? :P

it takes practice and skill. lure them to a place where they have to crawl to get to you. from there you can bomb the hell out of them.

I still don't think a morph ball run is possible on normal thanks to the beam dudes, but I suppose if you're lucky you can pull it off. be sure to save at every save point.
Not exactly a question about the game.

What all do I need to make videos, and how much would that stuff cost?

Any tips for lowering you time on Hard 100%? I can only manage 2:02. I know close but still.
everybody knows it's true
better boss fights

practice collecting crap

follow DD/RS/aj's route.
What are three unknown items?  It's been a year (or so) since I have played this game on my emu, and I still had my old file from it (that's how I got my ZM time on the TMTSB) and what suits you need for each?
everybody knows it's true
jumpy, gravity, and plazma
Time bomb set get out fast!
...all of which can be obtained with the Power Suit alone.  "Jumpy" means Space Jump.
The unknown item in Crateria said that is wasn't compatible with my current power suit.  What's that mean?
everybody knows it's true
That means you need the upgrading in Chozodia.

I got the unknown item in Crateria and right after I got the Power Grip, but of course, it seems that is what you needed to get in order to get the ice beam.
