Smoke mines and Throwing knives.

Post by Scortch » Fri Jul 16, 2010 7:22 am

So, rather than scratching my head until I wear a hole in my skull, I though I would ask a couple of questions here. Any help would be appreciated.

I've noticed that some players are able to throw knives. I can't.

I've noticed that some players can plant Smoke mines. I can't.

Are these things based on experience? If so, what level needs to be achieved to gain these abilities?

Also, The Panzer...

When I fire a Panzer, it fires. I cannot stop it from firing once I've hit the fire button, yet I hear other people hit the fire button on their panzers and then abort the shot before it fires. That's a neat trick. What am I doing wrong? Why can't I abort a Panzer shot?


Cheers.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Ok, let me help here. Take one thing at a time.

This is because a "new" second attack had to be scripted in jaymod to allow it to happen.
To throw knives, Press "Esc >> Jaymod >> Controls" and bind "Throwing knives" to your right mouse. Don't worry, all other types of alternate fire like granade loading and scoping continue to work as normal.

S-Mines and Poison mines are an experience given thing. You need Engineer LvL 5 to able to plant, S-Mines and Poison mines.

This could be considered an exploit technically as it wasn't intended for gameplay, but it is an invaluable trick. You use a selection of keys at the same time. If I remember correctly, during the launch, press 'D' (walk right) and 'Q' (lean left) together without any other button. I hear some people have even scripted this together to make a 'cancel key'.

If you need more detail, let me know.

Thanks for the info. I don't see how this is invaluable. I always thought of it as an after-a-while-irritating habit, like popping your knuckles.

Lean right or left to disarm a panzer shot.
