Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando Forum  /  Crane Skip Explanation/Tutorial?
  EP1C_EP1C_

I've been wanting to get into speedrunning RAC2 any%, but I've pretty much hit a road block on this one. I've done the skip a few times before, but it's very inconsistent and I think that I'm clearly not doing something right. If anybody can explain in-depth how this skip works, I would really appreciate it. Making the jump after the wrench swing isn't an issue. The problem is that I often hyperstrike and kill the enemies rather than do the regular swing 9 times out of 10. FYI I'm playing on PS2 Greatest Hits.

Hi.

I've found that the wrench swing really depends on how you approach the corner and when you jump. How I do it is best shown with video reference.
I really just get into the right corner, and then as soon as the bots are close enough I'll do a single jump while holding up/upright. From there I do the wrench-swing while continuing to hold upwards on the analog and then I just do the jump. If it's a sloppy explanation I'm sorry but really it's something you get a feel for after doing it a few times correctly. The main point is to make sure you're not neutral when trying the wrench swing though, and try and find a timing to jump that is consistent.

Thanks. I've been getting the swing a lot more consistently as of late. I'm not really sure what my problem was before but it's a lot better now. I'm beginning to realize that a big amount of this run is just tricks that you get a feel for, haha. Thanks again for the help.

i have found it helps a ton if you hold back when you do the first jump, stops you wall bouncing
