DOOM | tricks | E2M7 | yellow key grab

Post by fx » 31.12.2014 12:28

Discovered by: Ilya Britvich
Demo: e2m7-046.zip (10/08/1997)
Skills needed: strafing and "luck"
Difficulty: medium, however it's very annoying, sometimes you get it on your first try, sometimes after 20 tries

Description:
A trick from the Ilya Britvich collection... a really cool and hard one. Normally you can't grab objects from much higher (compare: on MAP16 you cannot grab the red key like this), but on this map it's possible for some reason. The real difficulty here is that you don't have too much place to move, and meanwhile you're trying, imps and spectres are going to be in your way...
In DOOM Done Quick, Yonatan Donner showed a variation of this trick with a cool invul'd rocket jump.
