Citadel Hops is a skip performed at the very end of Lava Tube while on the zoomer. By collecting enough blue eco in the lava falls shortcut portion of Lava Tube, the zoomer can gain enough speed to jump and hop over the Citadel entrance door at the end of Lava Tube. This skips having to collect the power cell at the end of Lava Tube and having to talk to Keira at the teleport gate.
Citadel Hops was discovered by Dass on September 20, 2021. Soon after, Aslov would be the first one to perform the trick on console (PS2).
