When I play Unreal or UT GOTY online, I notice that some other players do a fancy forward flip while running about. It seems to be really effective because it's sodding hard to shoot them. Does anyone know how to do the forward flip?

I've tried double-pressing Forward but that just makes your man bound forward quickly.

Is done when you dodge forward. Bots sometimes flip with a normal jump.

What he said. The flip is just an animation.

A foward flip does not make the bots harder to hit, the hitbox is still WAY bigger than the flipping bot so just shoot like the bot is running. The only thing flipping does is confusing the attacker, but you'll get used to it.

Yeah, I think that's what it boils down to. Good little addition, I thought.

So from now on I'll just shoot the bots as normal. It matters little what I do, mind - me being as bad as I am at DM, I'll still end up with a Flak Shell in my face or in several gibbed pieces after being targeted with the-much-favoured-by-UT-veterans ASMD combo. Ah well. :lol:
