1. Halo 2 Jumping > 1. Add Height to All Your Jumps

Add Height to All Your Jumps

Use the crouch technique to add height and distance to your jumps.

Every multiplayer Halo level provides numerous opportunities to use the crouch technique. Players who do not use this jump will simply not have as many options (see Figure 1-1) as the ones who are crouch jumping all over the map.

Of all the Halo 2 jumping tricks, the crouch jump is the most useful. Not only are there plenty of chances to use this skill, but it’s also easy enough that anyone can use it in the heat of combat. To perform a crouch jump, you simply crouch when you reach the apex of your jumping arc. By crouching at the top of your jump, your feet will be slightly higher than normal. The effect of raising your feet is twofold: you will be able to clear objects that are slightly higher than normal and you will be able to jump slightly farther (since your feet won’t hit the landing point as quickly). To illustrate this point, take a look at this jump on the Lockout map (see Figure 1-2).
