when you run and jump in air, is that speed obtained while in air, faster than just running? if yes, by how much?

when you run and jump forward, is that speed obtained while in air, faster than just running? if yes, by how much?

If not, why does it seem to happen much quicker?

say you are behind a wall, and the enemy comes through door, if he just runs in, you can track, if he runs and jump slides in (run, jump, let go of all motion keys, slide) my perception is that it happens faster.

jumping isn't any faster than running, not in a perceivable way at least, although it is faster than running trough water, and the hitbox it's somewhat weird when jumping, especially if you do a crouch jump or similar.

In BF3 jumping with 1-2 steps in between was faster than normal running by about 0.4 m/s full sprint (no perk)

Early BF4 it was still faster to jump but the landings slowed you down and you needed several steps to "recharge", making the bunny jump sprinting fairly redundant and only slightly faster than normal running over long distances...

No clue how it is now after all the changes back and forth...

running is not faster with jumping, but I was wondering if just the jump itself might be faster, and then when you hit the ground you slow down a bit, to make it on average, balance out to same speed as running.

Its just when someone corner jumps, they seem to be going so fast that you cannot follow them nearly as well as if they just ran out from the corner........

is it just glitching the animation or something?

like say i run jump, if I do it right, I can end up BEHIND the guy, that basically never happens with just running thru a doorway....

there has to be something going on with run jumping(+-sliding) thru doorways versus just running????

As in the video KDNS linked (which you should totally watch—the guy in charge of that channel has very good information), some things on jumping:

1) It makes you a lot harder to hit. You're not much faster (and you can be slower if you do it too much), but it makes it difficult to anyone get a quick 100% acc burst out on you with the crappy MV most guns have

2) Jumping before cornering can cause the "ZouZou jump" glitch, which makes you very difficult to hit as you corner. It can be used behind a head glitch to achieve a guaranteed kill on someone on the other side of the cover, as it causes a periscope effect where your collision box is way beneath the cover you can shoot over

3) Jump+Crouch slide is a very reliable method of peeking that is utilized extensively in the competitive environment (and probably will be again in BF1). It causes a sliding effect while crouched, and gives you a very small target profile while facilitating fast peeks.

4) You can't shoot while jumping. Timing is of the essence with jump peeks.

"you obviously don't know what an argument is as there is only one person battling. Do you really fucking think I want subs? You think you can act all big and powerful just because you sit on a computer at least 6 hours a day like the probably nerdy unwanted retard you are with 4.3k subs? You think 4.3k subs is a lot? LOL you need medicine man. I don't want any subs as i just have a google account for other media and writing comments. Think twice before you act. You even said in your video you aren't that great of a player, and the comments agree you aren't. Maybe you should once again think twice before you act, stop being such an annoying, ignorant bastard that everyone wants to shut up, and god, literally, just shut up. Your voice gave me a headache :s"

"The more you watch his vid the dumber he gets I swear he's borderline autistic look I got shot behind cover beacuase thin sheets metal are unpenetrable. Bf4 is just as quiet and tactical as bf3 random explosion in the background . Player has dissconected from chat
You started playing bf3 and never touched bfc1/2. Please do yourself a favor and shutdown your generic cod channel down"

"I don't see why he [MarbleDuck] always tries to shit on levelcap he is better and has a million more subs...and also "there isnt a best gun in she game there are guns that are better that others at different engagement distances" yes thats true and whichever is the best/most average at all of them is the "best gun""

"Marbleduck you don't know shit lol levelcap knows more than you do you cant talk about how someone puts up garbage when you do yourself your a newcomer to YouTube acting like you know shit step up in the food chain first then you have the right to talk otherwise your just a fish trying to compete with sharks"

"fuck you asshole, dont talk shit about total"

"Wtf is your problem? You have no subs and he has millions, yet you pick on him like some kind of stubborn, ignorant, rude child born with a silver spoon is his mouth. It's easy to do that, for example... You said there was no background noise yet there is. You say you're a fairly good player, you're not."
