One easy tip:
Learn to strafe-jump!
This map is an open area build for strafe-jump, there are basically no corners at all so get jumping.

If you perform a small circle jump, you can jump from the row of armor shards to the invisibility. A quick and useful way to get a hold of it,.

Did you know that the Mega-health is behind the mirror? ;)

This level is filled with neat tricks, it's just a matter of patience to learn how to perform them.

  • Coming from the railgun spawnpoint, running down towards the lava, you can jump between the pillars and avoid the stairs. All it takes is a little circle jump.
  • With the right angle, and speed, you can jump from the plasma gun, directly to the Quad.
  • When coming from railgun, running towards rocketlauncher, there is a button on the wall in the corridor that opens a door to a hidden room. A shot on the button is all it takes.
  • When exiting the hidden room, make a jump just as you are on the edge of the opening to avoid making splashing water sounds that reveal your position.
  • Coming from the rocketlauncher, up through the stairs towards red armor, there is a button on the wall that extracts the floor to allow for passage. Don't press the button, jump around the wall instead not to reveal your location by sound.
  • From the spawnpoint near the rocketlauncher (next to the lava) make a rocketjump through the opening in the wall to get quick access to red armor.

Not exactly sure, but I think this jump can be done only in CPM physics.
We did it on CPM, remember wiz?

Same as above. Its next to impossible to do this jump in standard OA, and a waste of time and score :)

Perhaps make a demo?

Both are perfectly possible in VQ3 physics, it's just harder =)
The later jump is a waste of time since it's ridiculously hard in Open Arena, but still, it's possible ;)

  • Jump across the moving lava platform in one go by simply performing a circlejump across the lava pool.
  • Rocketjump from the spawnpoint below Quad directly to medi-kit.

I just cannot get to quad with a normal or double jump. For the life of me I can't! :(

You probably think about the double jump off the stairs underneath Quad to the ledge where the Quad is. (I remember we spoke about this).
That jump is only possible in CPM physics, not in VQ3.

  • Crouch jump up to the top row of servers/computers in the corridor and then directly to mega-health.
  • In oa_dm3 it's possible to crouch jump up to RA (Red Armor) from the ledge below it.
  • Jump from Quad across the room to invisibility and vice versa.
  • With battlesuit you can rocketjump up through the window with a few rockets against the wall (even w/o suit) :)
  • Plasmaclimb up against the wall where you have the battlesuit through the window.
  • You can rocketjump from the top jump-pad of three,in through the window over the battlesuit.
  • Jump from the bridge (upper) directly through the window to the rocket launcher.
  • Jump out from the window at the rocket launcher straight to the bridge (lower).
  • Rocketjump on the mega-health to reach the higher level quad/invis.

  • Listen carefully to sounds, it reveals all enemy positions during a duel
  • You can make a circle jump from Yellow Armor, across the open area, to the stars near Quad.
  • Use the holes in the floor on the top level to your advantage and shoot rockets down on your opponent.
  • Be random in your timing when exiting portals.
  • Learn how to rocketjump up from lava, it will come in handy.

PostPosted: Sat Sep 29, 2007 5:10 pm    Post subject: kaos2 - tips & tricks Reply with quote

Here is a demo of a few tricks & tips for kaos2. This is not a defrag demo, it is recorded in Open Arena 0.7.1, no server settings and a default q3config.cfg.

This means that you need to place the demo on /baseoa/demos.

I recorded this is because I wanted to show that the tricks you learn on Defrag is also possible to do on 'normal' maps, even if you loose a little health :)
