I was wondering if you can get the scarab gun without using anything beside yourself, no banshees, no boxes, no vehicles, no pelican. Just the 2 spartans and the 1 nade spawn.
an yes, it is possible.
Prepare for some intense video of me getting the scarab gun on foot.
(Grumpy pick up your popcorn and take something to drink )
I went from the very bottom to the scarab gun itself.
I used 3 techniques to get there:
1 self partnerbouncing
2 FRAG (read: suck) grenadepiles
3 crazy cornerrides
The partnerbounce thing is pretty insane the way i did it, first i'll explain the partnerbounce for those who dont know: You can bounce on gridlines and edges by doing the following: p1 jumps on p2's head. p1 jump, a certain time later p2 jumps, p1 jumps again, so its a double jump. p1 hold forward and land on the edge. Sounds easy? well if you have a second player to double jump you...
...well I don't need a second player. I can handle both controllers and do the bounce 1 out of 1-2 tries I put the 2nd controller on my stomach, I hold the 1st controller 7 cm above it and with the pink of my right hand i tap the A button of the 2nd controller ^_^ =)
For some parts of the climb I needed grenade piles, when I made one I need a cp so i let p2 cornerride down multiple times for the checkpoint
anyway it is an amazing vid and you should really watch it
