Using the Jumper in Missile War 2.3

Post by kazbachris » Wed Jun 25, 2008 10:32 pm

How do I use the jumper to land near the SB box where the flag is usually placed? I can land on their pad and a few other places, but can never get to this spot but have seen other people do it.

I think the launching is random, or I have never figured it out either. You can always just go along the side wall and jump in through the opening on the SB tower too.

The jumping is not random, it launches you differently from different spots.

You need to get close to the outside wall and drive at an angle towards the outside wall at between 50 & 75% power. It should get you close to the sb place on the oposite side of the map from where you are jumping, but takes some practice.

Yep, it's just a matter of adding velocity vectors. I have found that using roughly %75 full speed will launch you right next to the flag. If you use about %80 to %85 full speed, you can land on the wall above the SB flags.
