Jumping sideways?

Recommended Posts

OK, so something completely bizarre happened last night. I think I might have discovered a new/beta feature or animation. Prove me wrong.

 

OK, so I was playing the game on my PS2; I saved and just before switching it off decided to run around for a minute. So I left the Portland hideout and turned left. I was running in the second lane of the road towards the traffic. A car was approaching (can't remember which one). I thought of jumping on it, but at a very last minute thought "Actually, I don't want to jump on it". So I wanted to quickly turn right and run around its bonnet.

 

Instead, Claude did something that I have never seen in all of the years of playing GTAs on various platforms. So I am pressing square and X (so X first, then square, then changed my mind and X again), and pushing the left stick to the right (well, away and then right).

 

Claude turns, but not turns as if he was running to the right: he sort of turns his upper body without moving his feet and then leaps to the right and sort of rolls/slides. Think of a goalkeeper jumping to catch a ball high above and to the side in football; that's the sort of thing he did, as if he was trying to avoid being hit by a car. Once on the group he quickly stood up (I can't remember how it happened, I think it was a standard animation).

 

Anyway, is this an old news, glitch or a new find? To say I was stunned at Claude leaping to the side is an understatement.

 

Cheers.

It's an actual feature, I'm surprised you haven't seen it before. You must not like trying to jump over police cars when they're flying at you. :p

It's a normal feature which always happens when you jump towards a moving car :D

Well, I'll be damned. We all learn something every day. And there I was, thinking of myself as a GTA 3 expert.

And this is exactly why GTA Wikia is full of sh*t.
