    Maybe it's my low framerate, but I can not climb walls. I've tried every combination I could think of, looked in every direction and moved in every direction, only to steadily descend.
    I remember a long time ago, maybe a year, when simply drifting into the wall would allow you to slowly ascend :oops:
  4. DrBash00

    It still works, just LOOK UPWARD and press w + a and move sideward up the wall.

    It works not on every wall! There are some walls where you bug down, all the time....
    So if it doesent work, maby you just try to climb some "bugged" wall.

    Before you start losing steam and slowing down, turn and face the opposite direction. Again keep holding 'w' and tapping 'space' like before. You will continue at full speed for the entire duration of your jets if you alternate directions like this (provided your original jumppad launched you more horizontal than vertical).

    Don't know if you knew because you seemed to fizzle out towards the end on each jump before you got to your destination. You can jump 2 hexes this way easy. Biolabs and Amp stations best for this (outside of a few unique pads).

    On the video the Base was the target, i actually never tryed how far i can go with it....

    But 2 bases should be possible, with a good platform.

    You can easily do this with regular jump jets. Though Drifters give you more range, jump jets give you altitude control, and the ability to keep on moving freely after you land and lose the jump pad's speed and altitude bonus.
    It's called the slingshot maneuver, or arcing, and has been known for a long time.

    I use the drifter for jumping off bases to attack enemy tanks.

    And with this technique you can jump over 1 - 2 bases and blast up tanks, far far away ^^

    But i also love to troll by putting a spawn beacon up on the top of a hill... and drop as Drifter LA, go rage mode, and drop again ;-)
