Weird spot you can hook on to

Postby IJ » Mon May 09, 2011 18:21 UTC

Just discovered this by accident. On q3tourney6 you can hook up on to the air on the side of the map. In the demo I'm able to do it again once but after that I'm not able to repeat it. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like:

It's actually pretty cool and unless you are really lucky I doubt it would affect game play since it seems pretty difficult to actually find it. Demo's attached if anybody's interested.

if you use shotgun spread to paint the box its real easy to find, theres two actually. one under the jump pad too ;) another thing you can play with in the space maps.. if you rocket jump right up to the invisible ceiling and hook right before you hit it, you can hook outside the map and hang in the sky lol

Thanks, it actually only shows up for the first second of the demo though. I think when i hit record somehow I get disconnected for a second. It actually just started happening recently

In Q3 no, some games support this, for example in Team Fortress 2 it's called demo smoothing. YT: TF2 - How to Smooth
