E3M1: shotgun trick

Fastest demo by:

e3m1-030 (25/10/1999)

Skills needed:
fast movement and turning, "luck"
Difficulty:
medium, however luck is the main factor
Description:
As we all know, a shotgun really helps when running this (and E3M9 also, mind you) level. Baum implemented a very interesting way to get the weapon as fast as possible (sparing 3 seconds roughly). The trick itself involves a DOOM bug (and it's not possible without it). Sometimes when you cross lines which trigger actions, the lines don't work properly and the trigger refuses to work (best examples are teleporters). Baum used this bug intentionally to be able to get the shotgun and go back the way he came.
This trick has been implemented in both E3M1 and E3M9, UV and NM speed.
