CE Multiplayer Tricks and Tips

  • High jumping (Two players required). One person stands still, the other tries to jump onto the still guys head (dead centre if possible), the instant he is in position the bottom guy holds down jump. If you are lucky both players shoot upwards. The height you achieve is unlimited but it depends on how centered the top player is.
  • Wing walking. Slow down the plane before getting out. You can refuel/repair a plane by wing walking.
  • Plane pickups. (Good for getting a flag carrier out of danger, fast). Best technique is to hold down right click to avoid being accidentally squished.
  • Surviving freefall without a parachute. Track into a vehicle (hold down right click just before you hit).
  • It is possible to capture a flag by skydiving onto your home flag. You die, but you capture the flag and it’s harder to be killed in free-fall.
  • Most vehicles do not have to be exited in order to capture the flag. But you do have to exit all vehicles to steal the flag in the first place.
  • On the fly repair / refuel. E.g. refuel and repair a plane by doing a touch n go over a repair kit or fuel can (don’t have to slow down either). Similarly with choppers. Shells can also be picked up in this fashion
  • Killing a player with a flag at their base.
  • Making vehicles jump (especially the truck) using turrets is fun.
  • Running on water. Need a machine gun & the parachute. When stopped in the water select and open the parachute. While it is opening press and hold the ‘5’ key. Press forward and you will be moving a run speed over the water.
  • Running under land. At certain points on a map with water, it is possible at a land water junction to get under the land/water.
  • It’s possible to gain altitude very quickly using a chopper by carefully edging up to the Bermuda triangle in “No Mans Land”. Hard to do.
  • Need to land a plane in a short space and time? Then land the plane on its wing tip while braking.

Other tips:

  • Always coordinate attacks with teammates. Don’t attack alone.
  • Staying alive. Find and use the 200 armor. With it you can survive very nasty near direct explosions on foot, where as if a vehicle dies while you are in it, it is certain death.
  • You get 60 points (instead of 20) for capturing the flag with your bases motorcycle.
  • You get 40 points (instead of 20) for capturing the flag with your enemies’ bases motorcycle. (These are bugs)
  • In a bomber, quickly swap to the gun turret to take out an enemy plane coming from behind.
  • Always fly using the mouse for much better maneuverability.
  • Guarding a flag. Drop some det-packs and go hide (learn to use the F4 drop camera to keep your view on the det-packs).
