The Sliding Down Ladders wiki last edited by Kaigan_sake on 08/23/13 07:48AM View full history

Overview

Sliding down a ladder is a fast and productive way to make your way down a ladder. Most modern games have this feature (except for Duke Nukem Forever) and this allows the action to be uninterrupted even when climbing down a ladder.

Usually your game character slides down a ladder by putting both hand and feet on the outside of the ladder and letting himself smoothly slide down it. This is realistic when the character is wearing gloves, however, it can seem ridiculous when said character is not wearing gloves. In real life, the metal from the ladder would heat up very quickly due to friction caused by the hand sliding on the metal. The character's skin would start burning, inflicting extreme pain to whomever thought it was a good idea to slide without gloves.
