    Sky High Scorpion

    Fed up of driving across Suspense and getting all shot-up along the way? Fear not, for a solution is at hand!

    Simply move your Scorpion alongside the cables and steer into them to cause it to tilt onto two wheels, thusly:

    You may find it helpful to use the boost to flip you fully onto the cable. Once there, you can safely drive up over the map:

    You can surprise Raptors from up there (unfortunately the projectiles don't reach the ground, or you could suppress Hoverboard use over the whole map), or jump off the end to land directly in the enemy flag room, or drop down in the middle of the map in order to wtfpwn the enemy by getting Juggernaut.

    It's also possible to get a Hellbender up there for sniping goodness, but it's rather hard to do, unless someone has found an easier way.

    EDIT: You can place the Goliath onto the cables by using a smaller vehicle as a "step", but you can't move once there because the Goliath's tracks are too wide.

    Looks fun, you can also line yourself up on the platform near the keg'o'health and hit turbo. If you get it right the scropion looses about 10 health but you are on the far side of the river ready to surprise people coming out of the enemy base.

        We -ut2k4 clan players- call this an exploit my friend.

        nothing to be proud of, plain exploid. get it fixed before launch.

            How is this an exploit ? It's not a bug in the map, and your Goliath is plain useless there.

              Actually, I think the first person to think of an exploit has some right to be proud.

              But then I fail to see how you can call this an exploit. The cables are clearly meant to take you to the top of the bridge.

                Ooooh, the superior players who call everything that isn't common an exploit. It's hard to see how a scorpion at the top of the bridge can be used to gain an unfair advantage over other players - just think before you call something an exploit

                  Getting a tank up there is,

                  BECAUSE

                  we had this bug in 2k4 that you could get a tank on top of a raptop (even a leviathan) & fly it around. And thats an exploid so they fixed it

                  thats all, it reminded me of that thingy dint want to insult anybody.

                        What a pompous douche. . .

                        An exploit?

                        Yeah, there's real strategic value and an unfair advantage in having a goliath stuck at the bottom of a bridge. Fix it before the goliaths take over the skies!

                          That about sums it up.

                            Not very useful if the tank is stuck at the bottom of the cables. Just cannon fodder there
