Time will be counted even in cutscenes, so remember to skip them all. Based on our testing, you save around 6 minutes if you skip all cinematics.

Stop Time By Opening Options Or Map

Time will not pass if you open the map or options menu. Open the map if you feel lost or want to take a break.

Stop Time By Opening Options Or Map

Keep Exploration & Shopping to A Minimum

Unless it's an item essential for the story or something needed for boss fights, keep exploration & shopping to a minimum. Focus only on beating the game and not much else.

Never Stop Moving

Never stop moving, even when attacking enemies. If a target requires you to stand still, it's best to bypass it. It's also important to have infinite ammo available so you don't need to scrounge around for ammo.
