This strategy was BANNED by speedrunners for being too game-breaking, once it came to light in September 2012... this story tells the tale of an incredible discovery in GoldenEye 007 speedrunning for the Nintendo 64, which altered the game so severely, that it could not be allowed.

Is this tactic cheating? Or should this technique be allowed in speedruns?
