Battlefield 2142

The Pod Long Jump

Set-up:
Unlike the real sport of long jumping, players pile into an APC and launch themselves as far as possible using the vehicle's launch pods. While this might be a massive waste of military resources, it's great fun and a clear indicator as to who's the coolest. Bonus points for killing the guy who went before you.

Outcome:
Our first jump sucked - a bit like thinking you can jump for eight miles and demonstrating it by leaping out your front door, only to turn around and see your house still just a few feet away. Once we parked the APC under a Titan to activate the super-jump mode though, our long jumps were far more spectacular.

We think:
The pods in Battlefield 2142 are more than just a way of getting to a Titan, but they're horrible when they don't go far. Actually telling who went furthest can be tricky too, although this can be settled with a knife fight.

We recommend
