Special maneuvers

-

- This page contains some special maneuvers that can be done in AssaultCube to further your fragging abilities, including: -

- -

Strafe running

-

- Strafe running is a technique that allows you to run about 40% faster when you move. It occurs because the game adds the speed - you get from moving forwards or backwards, with the speed you get from strafing left or right. -

-

- How to strafe run: While moving forwards (or backwards), strafe left (A) or right (D) at the same time. -

-

Rifle jump

-

- Rifle Jumping allows you to be able to jump higher. You can use this move - to jump onto things you just couldn't normally jump upon. Rifle jumping can even be used for surprising an enemy by popping - up where they don't expect you to be! -

-

- Rifle jumping uses the recoil of the weapon you are using to push you up into the air. The assault rifle is the best weapon to - rifle jump with, because it has the greatest amount of recoil, where the other weapons have far less and won't yeild the same results - as the assault rifle can. -

-

- How to rifle jump: When in midair while jumping, fire your weapon at the ground. You should get propelled further upwards and get more airtime - than a normal jump would give you. -

-

Rifle sprint

-

- Rifle Sprinting can get you you in and out of places, or away from things very quickly, because it allows you to travel at great speeds. -

-

- However, it can be dangerous because: -

- -

- When using Rifle Sprint, make sure you aren't accidentally shooting at your allies. Rifle sprint uses the same concept as rifle jump, since - it is using the recoil from your weapon to propel you backwards. -

-

- How to rifle sprint: You MUST use the assault rifle (as this move is ineffective with any other weapon). - You will need to shoot away from team mates (i.e. at walls, it's best to aim downward) but in the opposite - direction of where you want to go - (your back should face the direction of where you want to go). Then, walk backwards and jump continuously as you fire your weapon. -

-

- Tip: If you are using rifle sprint to get away from an enemy quickly, you might be able to aim your weapon at the enemy as you rifle sprint - and frag them as you sprint to safety. -

-

Stalling grenades

-
(AKA: "Cooking off" nades)
-

- Grenades are timed and whenever you throw one, you must wait 3 seconds for them to blow up, which makes it hard to be accurate with them. -

-

- However, if you stall a grenade, you can be more accurate with them. To do this, select your grenades as the weapon you are using, then - press AND hold the fire button. Hold it for nearly 3 seconds, then let go of the fire button to throw the grenade. If you throw it too - quickly, the grenade will still have to wait before exploding. If you don't throw it quick enough the grenade will blow YOU up, resulting in suicide. -

-

- Disadvantages of stalling grenades: -

- -

Grenade jumping

-

- Grenade jumping is simple, but deadly, so be careful. Because of its deadlyness, its not a very useful move. -

-

- To grenade jump, you will need some grenades... and possibly a lot of armour to protect you from the blast. -

-

- Firstly, throw a grenade at the ground and make sure you are close to it. Just before the grenade explodes (grenades have a 3 second timer) - jump away from the grenade. You should be able to use the impact from the blast to jump quite high, if it doesn't kill you. -

Strafe running

+
+ strafe run +
+

+ Strafe running is the most important technique to learn, because it allows you to move about 41% faster than normal. + This occurs because the game adds the speed you get from moving forwards or backwards, to the speed you get + from strafing left or right. More information can be + found here. +

+

+ Strafe running is simple: while you're moving forwards (or backwards), strafe left (A) or right (D) at the same time. + See the diagram to the right for an example. +

+
+ rifle jump +
+

Rifle Jump

+

+ Rifle Jumping allows you to be able to jump higher than normal. You can use this move + to jump onto things you just couldn't normally get on top of. Rifle jumping can even be + used for surprising an enemy by popping up where they don't expect you to be! +

+

+ This move uses the recoil of the weapon you are using to push you up into the air. The assault + rifle is the best weapon to use with rifle jump, because it has the greatest amount of recoil, + where the other weapons have far less and won't be able to yield the same results as the assault rifle can. +

+

+ How to rifle jump: after jumping, fire your weapon at the ground while still in mid-air. You should get propelled + further upwards and get more air-time than a normal jump would give you. See the diagram to the left. +

+

Rifle sprint

+

+ Rifle sprinting is very similar to rifle jumping. It allows you to travel at great speeds by using the + rifle's recoil in your hasty escape. It is especially useful in capture-the-flag modes or avoiding shotgun players. +

+

+ To rifle sprint: You MUST use the assault rifle. You will need to be careful that you are shooting away from team mates; + it's best to aim toward walls and slightly downward. Your back should be facing the direction you wish to go. + Then, walk backwards and jump continuously as you fire your weapon. +

+

+ If you're able to, aim your weapon at the enemy while making this move to get some frags at the same time. +

+

+ It should be noted however, using rifle sprint poses the following dangers: +

+ +

+ Stalling grenades +

+

+ Grenades have a 3 second timer before they blow up. This can make it difficult to be accurate with them, but it's + a necessary evil to ensure you don't blow yourself up in the process. +

+
+ Grenades +
+

+ However, you can become more accurate with grenades if you stall them. To do this, select your grenades + as the weapon you are using, then press and HOLD the fire button. Hold it for nearly 3 seconds, then + let go of the fire button to release the grenade. If you throw it too quickly, the grenade will still have to + wait before exploding. If you don't throw it quickly enough the grenade will blow YOU up, resulting in suicide. +

+

Grenade jumping

+

+ Grenade jumping is simple, but deadly, so be careful. Because of its deadliness, it's not a very useful move. + To grenade jump, you will need some grenades... and a lot of armour to protect you from the blast. +

+

+ Firstly, throw a grenade at the ground and make sure you are close to it. Just before the grenade explodes + (grenades have a 3 second timer) jump away from the grenade. + You should be able to use the impact from the blast to jump quite high. +

+

+ Disadvantages of grenade jumping: +

+ +
+ Crouch Jump +
A player crouch jumping to clear a large gap. +
+

Crouch jumping

+
+ Teabag +
A player tea-bagging an enemy corpse. +
+

+ Crouch jumping can be useful to give you just a little bit of extra air-time during your jump, which can be helpful + to get up onto ledges, windows, etc. or to jump across larger gaps than can be managed normally. It's quite simple; + after you jump, press and hold the crouch key (left shift, by default). +

+
+

Tea bagging

+

+ Perhaps the most immature part of gameplay, tea bagging is a maneuver that offers no advantages + at all, except that of humiliating your enemy. Many people have their own views on tea bagging, + some believing you look like a silly immature n00b for trying it. +

+

+ How to tea bag: after fragging a player, stand over that player and repeatedly crouch up and down. + The humiliating part of doing this is that by effectively sitting on top of their dead corpse, + you remove any respect you may have had towards them. Of course, any respect they had towards you + also disappears. +
