In Response To: Re: Banshee Launch Funtage (PerseusSpartacus)

: Intriguing. I may have to try this for myself. Indeed, I may try this soon.
: I've already done the Bridge Descent, and I believe I grabbed a checkpoint
: with the Twin Bridges Banshee, so I should be ready to try this. In fact,
: I may even do that as soon as I'm done writing this message!

Okay, I tried it. Didn't work out as well as I had hoped, but I can definitely get the idea. It certainly bounces you quite far, the real question is how carefully can you dictate the terms of the bounce. In other words, how accurate can one be with the time and place of the bounce such that you can consistently get it to launch you hard upwards instead of getting a mix of clean upwards hits and dull sideways bounces? I have a little trouble with this, but I'm sure that with work, you can make it more consistent.

Part of it is probably getting a good checkpoint. My checkpoint starts me off in mid-air a ways away from the bridge, forcing me to fly up to the ledge and hope to get a good starting point. With effort and a bit of checkpoint delay, you could probably get a checkpoint on the ledge, such that you can manage your positioning and timing over and over, getting a feel of where and when to drop. In other words, after several tries, you could probably get an idea of "Okay, if I inch slightly to the left of where I am at the start of the checkpoint, and then drop right as the dropship turns upwards, I can consistently get good, clean hits." That's my hope, anyways.
