    While the above solution is excellent advice, I think it is more appropriate for a legendary or LASO speed run. The par time on Keyes can be achieved by just setting the difficulty to easy and running through the level.

    As early as possible, get the shotgun. Speed through the level and don't stop to shoot anyone unless they are actually preventing you from continuing. There are lots of tight hallways crowded with flood - if there are a clump of flood, use a grenade. You should be able to beat this with plenty of breathing room without using any glitches. Remember that once you found Keyes, and you're back in the hangar, you can just drop down levels by falling over the side (fall from 3rd floor to 2nd to 1st) and then immediately get in the banshee.

    Good luck.

    HawaiianrulerThis is so true. I finished in 8 minutes on easy and I even died four times. Be careful in hallways throwing grenades as the ones from dead grunts will go off. Also fun note. If you get to the banshee platform before it registers it as your objective you can get in and fly outside the ship for a few seconds

    GrfxGawdSimilar experience as the person who posted above, died at least three times. 7:56 total time, flew outside the ship for a few seconds before it even registered and the cutscene played. One of the easiest speedruns and used no glitching.

    Since par times are best done on easy and it is much easier to just run through Keyes rather than to attempt the "shield bump" glitch, I wanted to share a video that helped me easily do this is one go in under 10 minutes (par time is 15 minutes).

    This is NOT my video, this is Halo Completionist's video. I don't take any credit for this video; I just wanted to post an easy solution that doesn't rely on difficult exploits and that is much easier for the average player.

    What's also nice is that he notes where health packs and overshields are throughout the level, which is a nice touch typically not talked about in other videos.

    Tired of trying to or simply can't Shield Bump?

    Then try this solution as an alternative method of beating the Par Time of 15:00 for the level Keyes - I would actually highly recommend this method before attempting the Shield Bump method simply because you don't have to be pixel perfect - there is a greater margin for error while still being successful!

    I was getting ready to attempt the Shield Bump method and there are several video tutorials out there but the comments on the videos and here on TA were discouraging until I stumbled upon another glitch - the Flood Bump!

    It took me about 20 minutes of trial and error until I finally got it to work and I managed to finish a Legendary Speedrun in under 3 minutes (2:53 to be exact!)

    A couple things to note:

    1) A fully charged Plasma Pistol shot will down the Flood without killing him (you will know that the Flood is dead and won't come back if the game triggers a Checkpoint - if this happens, press start and restart the mission!) and
    2) I crouched while pushing forward up against the wall as the Flood re-animated.

    Watch the video several times and use the markings on the wall as a point of reference for where the Flood should go down and where you should position yourself. I can't stress this enough, the positioning of both the Flood and your position on him are crucial (again, use the markings on the wall as a point of reference of where to position yourself!)

    The above video doesn't cover an entire playthrough of the level so to finish that off, please refer to the video below and fast forward to 2:15 (after the cut scene) for an effortless way to wrap up the mission!

    Homunculus FurySilverscorpion video does a better job explaining the flood bump, also how to get a reviver flood to spawn 100% of the time. But this is what I did on my legendary run took me 7 minutes.
