Right, I'm fairly average at most games but HL is one I consider myself mildly good at. I have a question for the HL experts. When I'm playing HL DM online I see people jumping around further and faster than usually...

Are they cheating?

Or is there some way to do this without cheating?

If its only in Half-Life Death-Match, then they probably have the jumppack powerup. Its a little jetpack-like thing that lets you perform 'long-jumps'. Go through the Hazard Course for more info.

If its in any other gametype (TFC etc), then is pure and simple cheating. :angryfire

Cheers - I'll check it out, I'd win a lot of the time if I could jump around like they do... :laugh:

Could it have been the conc grenade jump? I've seen folks do it, but I was never able to master the move myself.

definitely the jump pack power-up, nuthin like jumping all-round the map with that thing, most annoying part is just getting it, and then gettin fragged :D

all you have to do is find the jet/jump-pack in most maps

for example datacore, you go into that room where there is a sort of tower thing, and up the back theres that hole u crawl through to get the snarks, and near the other side is that ladder that goes up to the main room where u get tripmines, and it connects to the room with the MP5...

anyway back to that room up the top, theres a metal walkway, and there is a jetpack there..

usually u get that jump-pack and race around to the area where the cross bow is and then u go up on the little box and super-jump accross to get the rocket-launcher


another thing u might see people doing is gauss jumping, where u charge the gauss gun and shoot it at the ground and it propels u fast and far...or it kills u :)

OK it's crouch + jump which enables the jump pack... :)
