Early Level Load Glitch
|This article contains information that is out of date or is missing latest research. You can help by renewing it.|
This is a glitch that breaks some in-game/map mechanics during the level-load.
To achieve this glitch, you have to enter the changelevel trigger and pause the game right after the loading is over - 1 tick in the newly loaded map (also known as 0.0s _2 demo). Once paused, save the game and reload the save. Doing this can break some mechanics in some maps allowing you to complete them faster or softlocking the game.
After loading textures and models, as a final step the engine will start to prepare entities which will apply changes to certain objects in the world. If saved before this step, these changes won't be applied, resulting in some interesting glitches.
