Default Rocket Jumps FTW !!!!!!

I was in the nostalgia zone for a few moments and was looking at some old game suntil i ran to this game and was like... how are the noobs of today reacting to when they say the rockets insta kills them ? those noobs have no idea why rockets do this today.

first and foremost, it was to make it more realistic then it was back then. but back in the old days, back int h days of the very first thru polygonal 3D game ever, which was Quake. you could actually see the problems of such weapons.

heres examples and i can tell you again, ROCKET JUMPS, FTW !!!!!!!

you guys haven't seen him throw nades, or shoots roclkets for himself to get higher reaches ?
relook at the video and spot them people.

because doing levels in 10 seconds top, is totally impossible without the rocket jumps or the single jump boost the guy gets. At one point, i dont know if its in this video though, he simply rocket jumps the whole level off directly to the exit. and i swear he's not using any cheats !

rocket jumps : the art of firing your rocket launcher at your feets to propel yourself to grounds that usually aren't attainables by regular means.

these were shut off in most games after that by making the rocket insta kill the guy if he is anywhere near it. but in the first few shooters of old. rockets were simply the best weapons, but weren't insta kills. thus people were using them to speed jump to places which led to people farming bullets of the said gun before any other could get there.

it also led to the creation of levels that were officially played to the vertical instead of horizontal.
aka, all space levels you've seen in unreal tournaments or the quake 3 arena games !

you can still do rocket jumps in the "more realistic" games (like Halo 2); you just need precise timing

back in doom and quake, you only died in one hit from a rocket if it hit you directly, so rocket jumps were easier to perform

Iplay, worse then you think, rockets were never one shotting you at all.
even a direct hit wasn't enough !


as for todays games...
i have seen none, including HALO which enable such a move.
rockets of todays standards have a lot longer reach then they used to.
explosions coverts much more packs and that explosion even if not a direct hit can still one shot you. same with grenades.
in halo there are many guns, the strongest rocket propably cannot do this. i tryed them often in halo 1 and 2.
dont know about 3 and 4 though. but in 1 and 2, rocket jumps are impossible.

as for games like call of duty, their goal is to be realistic enough. and realism means blowing up if a rocket is shot at your feets. in real life shooting a rocket at your feet will probably kill you, not shoot you flying to the second floor of a building !

thats why i liked games of old better, not having realism made it a bit better and funnier to play !

Exclamation ....

There are still a few games that still allow rocket jumping, including halo 2 if you do not aim directly at your feet, otherwise if you accidently it yourself you are dead.

Not really, what you are thinking of are super jumps in halo 2. Its a flaw in Halo 2's havok engine that (if timed correctly) can allow the player to jump SUPPPPPPPPPPER high. Youtube it.

As for rocket jumping, i have fond memories attempting to rocket jump in doom 2 online with dial-up ... Not the smartest of ideas.

I never was man e nough to perform a rocket jump in any game. I always stuck to grenade jumping.

Also Karma, you're too old fashioned. Even I know TF2 isn't a Half Life mod. It's a "new" game that has rocket jumping in one of their classes (The Soldier). Hell, they even went and added an item that reduces damage from your rocket jump.
