Grenade Hop?

#1 Posted by mosespippy (3738 posts) -

Does a grenade hop count as a rocket jump?  I'm thinking specifically of in Marathon (Bungie, 1994, Mac) where grenades are launched from a grenade launcher and are used to hop.  I think it should be counted as a rocket jump, and is most likely the first appearance of the action in video games.

From the looks of the page, rocket jump just refers to any weapon being used to jump higher. Hell, that'd include Rogue Trip using dynamite to jump across the Grand Canyon.

Yeah adding grenade hops should be fine.

unless there is a concept page called gernade jump but seeing is how this page talks about gerande jumping as a form of rocket jumping then it should be considred in the same catagory and rocket jumping is my favorite thing to do in any game that i can.
