We all have felt frustraion over getting stuck on cover but do you think that Gears of War should have a jump button? It would be easier to jump over cover instead of climb.

You try jumping with over 100 pounds of armor, weapons, and ammunition when you're just an average strength human being...as for the Locust, they live underground, so they have no need to jump.

You wouldnt jump in a real battle so why the hell will you want to jump in a shooting game. Epic did it just right. Epic just needs us to play with more ppl ..maybe like a 6 on 6 or a 8 on 8. Oh yeah lets not forget some type of solution to fix the Host problem.

1. 4 v 4 is already laggy enough but 8 v 8?
2. host is abesolutely bullsh*t and is a huge part of this games problems
3. you wouldnt even be able to walk with 30,000 pounds of armor
4. what would the need to jump be for?
4. in halo you can jump because your in a special suit, not some huge armor

halo and gears are two different games and by the look of it, Gears is going to be better than Halo

Ofcourse they can make it happen, they just have the excuse of a "tight netcode"

The only future games that have people in heavy armor jumping, is when there is little gravity. Gears has graity like earth (I think) so no1 wud be jumping.

Think about one of the first interviews Cliffy gave about the Gears gameplay. He said by himself (as far as I can remember): "In war you don't jump, you need to keep your head down because you don't want to be an easy target to your enemy". Let this comment of the lead designer himself answer you this question :)

no .. no jump is needed

a KICK button would be awesome though..could you imagine kicking someone off the ledge on tyro station and then they get hit by the train lol..jk

jumping isnt the solution

Fixing the problems with the roadie run and cover acquisition is the solution

I offically change my answer to NO. You all made very good points and I agree. I just thought it would be easier and faster to get over cover and obstacles. But ironically, I've NEVER played Halo before. I played it for about 2 minutes in a gamestop when the original game out.

That would be so stupid and pointless. You already hop-climb over the ledges, and no soldier just leaps over stuff without touching it while holding a gun. Also people would be all over the map with it even easier to glitch. The entire shooting gameplay wouldn't even be the same nature. In head-to-head battles people would be jumping around like idiots.

Nah it would make the game too much like Halo. Besides, there are other things that require attention (glitches).

No, this game does not need a jump button.

Jumping opens the door to more glitching. People would figure out a way to get out of every map.

I tried the Halo 3 beta the day it came out. Never played Halo of any kind. Started to shoot someone and just see the guy jumping. I die of course. I hated seeing people do that in Battlefield and will be annoyed if I continue the Halo 3 beta.

I love how everyone links jumping to halo :D lmao. Anyway, this game would suck if we had the ability to jump, at times perhaps it could be a major advantage but this is a game based on team tactics, if you're a good player the ability to jump wouldn't be needed because cover gives you the...well...cover you need. As for everyone saying it would be too heavy to jump in: They seem to run/slide/dive in it pretty well don't they ;)

There you go, a completely unbiased answer - not something you see everyday.

definitly No! if a jump button was in this game people would find new ways to jump out of lvl and other various exploits

Just go play "that" beta and you'll be so glad to come back to Gears. Big army dudes loaded with armor should NOT be jumping all over the place like they are on pogo sticks. Lame.

Yah I think that people are missing the point that its not that that the characters can't, it's that they shouldn't. A "big army dude" cant jump, but he can run non stop in roadie run, and do ninja rolls across wallz. Not to mention the summer saulting and side rolling.

plus some of there armor might be hard to jumpin all that armor

3. you wouldnt even be able to walk with 30,000 pounds of armor

Metrics my son, metrics.

30k = 30 kilograms. 30 kilograms is about 66 pounds.

NO because this isnt how the game was meant to be!,

and the abreviation for kilograms in Kg, not k, k means thousands.

But, no jump...you go put on 70 lbs of equipment and start jumping around while getting shot at, you won't, you'll be on the ground praying.

Most people are too lazy to put Kg. and, I'm assuming he doesn't actually think that they wear 30,000 pounds of armor... Because that's just retarded >.>.

I could be wrong though; He might have meant 30,000 O_o.

yea but i also thought that no one might not be able to jump straight up without support because we dont know the gravity

05-20-2007, 10:36 PM
why would you jump? in a firefight, the last thing I think I would do is jump in the air randomly.

edit:It's already amazing enough that we can reload while rolling, that's pretty hard.

Realistic? People getting shot in the leg and somehow they end up on the floor and when they see a locust coming up to curb stomp them they can't even fire a few rounds in defence? People rolling down stairs? Rolling itself is a tad bit unrealistic. Try it. Diving, sure, but I dunno... Maybe they're all just really tough.

This game doesn't need jump....Leave that for the kids in halo

What i'd like tho is the ability to crouch when not in cover...strange that you cant.

As annoying and frustrating as it can be to get stuck on the invisible walls ( canals and rooftops come to mind :) ) I wouldnt want to deal with a jump button.

One of the reasons I enjoy playing Gears of War is because it has a more gritty and realistic feel to it. I dont think i want to see players bunny jumping around with the boomshot all the time. Then I might as well go play the most boring, over rated game Halo.

I find it interesting how some people are saying there is no way these guys can jump around with all this equipement weighing them down. If you think about it, they are technically jumping/ lungeing whenever you do a roll. If anything it should be easier to jump across than to do a roll.

When the roll is finishing, they are using an incredible amount of strength from their legs to quickly stand up and balance themselves. I wonder how much they can squat :)

I know im thinking way to much about this :) but I think it would be easier to jump then to constantly do rolls all over the place.

Its also the future as well. Theres nothing saying that all this equipement and weapons they carry are considerably light but still have the durability to stop bullets and so forth.

The main reason why I dont want to see the jumping either is because I think it would bring in that many more exploits and glitches. Since you can use just about anything for cover think about it. You jump off a ledge into a nearby wall. You quickly use the cover button and get sucked into it. The character would probably just sit there floating in mid air or slowly slide down.

Its all about gameplay style. You can't just arbitrarily crouch out in the open any time you want, either. You must be up against cover to do this. Jumping is just stupid and probably the #1 reason why I don't care too much about that "other" game's gameplay.

Glitchs, more ways too have a new glitch, prehaps they can jump and kill us before we know it.
