=== Rotational Jumps ===
 
=== Rotational Jumps ===
A common tactic against tanks that are on boxes a jumpable distance above you, is to drive parallel to the block and then jump while turning slowly towards your opponent. If you time it right, your barrel will track him as you fly past. You can then fairly easily shoot the tank, whereas he will have a harder time targeting you. This is also frequently referred to as a "Strafe Jump", even though it has nothing to do with strafing.

=== Oscillation Overthruster ===
With Oscillation Overthruster, you cannot jump while sealed, and you cannot drive backwards into a block. However, you can jump backwards onto a block, and fall through the floor. This is a common means of OO camping, especially on ''Overlord''. You can also jump from one building to another, which is another good way to limit exposure.

=== Reversing ===
If a newbie is chasing you, you can sometimes kill them by throwing your tank into reverse and jumping straight backwards. You land behind them, and can then kill them with ease. This sort of behavior is often completely unexpected. Similarly, you can fire off a ricochet, and then jump over your own shot.

=== Dropping Flags ===
 
=== Dropping Flags ===
 
Often referred to as "[[Jargon#Jargon|passing]]." If you drop a team flag while jumping over a pyramid, slanted surface, an object with death [[physics]], or an opponent's team base, it counts as an "illegal location". That is, the game will prevent the flag from landing there. Instead, it will send the flag to some designated location. By default, it will fly to the middle of the map. If the middle is somehow blocked, it will sent the flag to that team's base. It is possible to define "flag safe zones." When these are defined, the flag will fly to these "safety zones."

=== The Mofo Trick ===
[[Category:Server]]
+
Want to jump from one platform to a platform directly above? To do this trick, it helps to zoom in the radar until you tank clearly appears as a rectangle. Then, drive your tank until it is just perched on the edge. Jump straight up, while turning slowly. If everything is done right, your tank will not hit the upper platform, and will instead pass it sideways. Your tank will then be one level higher. Keep in mind that you are very vulnerable if you are not paying attention while doing this.
