PostPosted: Mon May 19, 2008 10:21    Post subject:  Grav Jumping
Subject description: FLY LIKE A MOTHER FRAKING EAGLE!!!!!!!
 

For a little something that hasn't been discussed on TSGK forums I would like to open a little discussion about grav jumping. The act of jumping (or standing) on a phys object and hitting it with the grav gun's primary fire so that you may fly like a bird (or try to at any rate)!!!!!!!!!

My interest in this technique started when .conflict (now of $W) released a short frag vid in which he grav jumped from the ground level of lockdown to that area by the charger with the two explosive barrels and a health pack, picked up one of said barrels, and killed some dude with it. (vid can be found here)

Personally, grav jumping is my current love in hl2dm....Ghost knows the appeal and anyone who sees me looking at the ground and trying to hit a phys with me grav gun should know as well (especially when it works Very Happy ).

In all honesty, it does depend on rates quite a bit. If you have cl_updaterate and cl_cmdrate at 50 you should be good (I'm sure other folks can give rate advice......as I'm pretty retarded when it comes to rates).

Grav jumping...How to do it effectively (in my experience):

If you know how to strafe jump....get yourself in front of a prop (radiators work the best) do a strafe jump, and really quick face straight down and hit the prop with your grav gun. If you're lucky you'll fly far (either vertically or horizontally), if not you'll slowly go 30 feet in the air and get shot in the face by someone who knows how to aim. Grav jumping can be quite random.

If you know how to bunnyhop it's a bit easier (or so I think). Set yourself up to have at least one hop before hitting the phys. After that first hop, look straight down at the object and smack it like it owes you money. You should get a good deal of height regardless of what velocity you have on your bhop (practice on a listen server).

The ramblings of a drunk man cannot adequately explain grav jumping (it really helps if you see it), but hopefully this garners some interest in the technique (random though it may be). And some discussion as to its relevance in the game.

And for some anecdotal evidence of it's awesomeness. Just yesterday in killbox_BS I had an awesome grav jump that sent me from the ground floor to hitting my head hard against the ceiling up by the charger. True, those are rare jumps, but oh so awesome when they happen!!!!!


This is not to be mistaken for the glitch jumping that involves bashing an object into a wall or floor, letting go, and jumping at just the right moment to send you flying through the air (that's another beast all together).

It's a really useful trick, but I can only do it while moving slowly.

Mastering the grav jump has made killbox gameplay totally different for me, done properly you can use most physics as you would an elevator ramp.

I love grav jumping Very Happy

I don't play much killbox but can often be found flying off cars in particular in other maps Cool

Can at times be slightly random as you say. Imo it works better if you strafe jump into it. I also don't half down rather than full as you tend to get more forward movement.

Funny when it can go wrong though (I've tried to go off a car as few times now only to have it land on my head and kill me) Laughing

The 'rates trick' annoys me though, we ban peeps off our server for that Shocked

So I consumed teh blue cheese lake burger. While it was initially delicious....thanks Ghosty and Lake Michigan.....I soon developed a reaction that was not unlike what would happen upon someone simultaneously consuming ipecac and picolax.

Twas most unpleasant. I fear that the simultaneous expulsion of watery solids at both ends has lead to a great negative pressure in my core. A pressure so great that I am currently waiting for one of my testicles to once again descend......
