If you haven't seen this one before, be sure to check the original demo out before reading on the detailed description... This trick is really shocking, and it had a really big impact on me in person. This jump here is really one of *the* jumps (If it's not *the jump* itself.) As it seems this trick is a little hard to understand, I'll have its specifics here (sorry guys who know everything :)
  • First thing is to have the barrels standing before trying :) Don't let the mancubus shoot them.
  • If you take a look at the barrels more closely, you'll notice that there is one row across which has the barrels very close to each other. Remember where it stands.
  • If you're up at the jumping position, just remember the position of the barrels, and imagine there's a wall there instead of barrels. If you practiced wallrunning enough, try to do it here. The barrels speed you up just as a wall does, but here, instead of going fast on the ground, you'll go fast midair... which actually means you're flying. The barrels act like a wall, it's that simple.
  • Oddly enough, the barrels are west-east in direction, not south-north as wallrunning requires. There is an explanation on this which is rather complicated, but if you're interested, send a mail and I'll try to explain.
