Guards vs Slicers

Post by Slasher_101 » July 2nd, 2016, 6:08 pm

Hey, is there any way to get a guard through a slicer without him dying?
I ask this because I'm trying a new speedrun strategy, and it could help me on level 9.
See, I want to kill the guard on top the gate trigger so that I don't have to make the tile fall on it.

I've never been able to get a guard to survive going through a slicer, but perhaps there is a way to bug the slicer so that it doesn't kill the guard.

Coincidentally there is a way to freeze the slicer later in level 9!

There is.
See the "guard_survives_chomper" video here: viewtopic.php?p=12715#p12715

I guess you mean Trick 21?

I'll add this trick to the overview at popot.org.
