I've beaten Contra before without dying and it actually started becoming fairly easy if using spreader so I've been trying only using Laser and finally accomplished it last night. Energy Zone and Hanger were always run killers...

Funny story is that a buddy of mine was over and he suggested I use my CIB copy of Contra (that I havent played yet) and I completed the deathless laser only on the first try!

Now what?

I recently did a 1CC with just the peashooter. It was so hard on the thumb that I'm sticking with spread from now on.

The laser is sweet!  
I love using it for low score runs.

We played it on the weekly contest this year and the laser was also my weapon of choice:




No death peashot only is pretty interesting to do, but VERY tiresome.

I've never recorded myself playing video games so that would be something new for me!

I was pretty disappointed I didn't though. Will have to learn how to do it.

Beating Contra without dying only got me sixth place in the weekly contest.

Challenge? Where?
The torch is the best weapon in the game.

The torch is actually a very good weapon, with only the dagger possibly being better.  The Axe is the worst weapon in the game, by far.

To make it a true "laser only" the run is a pacifist until the laser is available towards the end of stage 1

Is that even possible?  I don't recall if the bosses time out or not, never bothered to check on that.  Same with the "gates" on stage 2 & 4.

As pacifist as possible anyway. You still have to kill bosses and in the behind the back screens everyone on screen blows up when you destroy a wall. And when you beat the game the entire island blows up, making your pacifist run worthless.

This years contra contest was no joke.  The competition was super steep.  I tried my darndest to take down our resident cyborg and my inferiority shown through.

Not my fault your Contra skills aren't cybernetic organism, living tissue over metal endoskeleton like.
