The Jump Pack power-up has been broken since 2012 or before -- need citing.

This Power-Up enables you to perform a special jump that moves farther and faster than a normal jump. This is a very effective tool for flag runners as it provides players with a slight speed advantage over other players in the game. In order to perform this jump, while moving forward you must hold down the crouch key, and quickly press the jump key.

NOTE: The OpFor CTF Jump Pack differs from the Half-Life Jump Pack in that this item (like all other OpFor CTF Power-Up items) can only be carried by one player at a time. However, it still offers great increase in speed and mobility when used properly and can be one of the most effective Power-Up items a flag runner can employ.

I expected this to be long and confusing, but hell no. It's short and beautiful!

Thank you. I am pleased it was a refreshing read. Holding myself from adding too much amidst missing a much anticipated Half-Life III release wasn't the hardest aspect of the project.

Getting Valve to believe the issue exists, care or believe it can be fixed remains years in. I simply got fed up and took care of it.

The unreleased set_user_maxspeed version provisions long jump, speed run, a few Penguins and grappling_hook control to boot.

Hook_grab ruins op4ctf unless it is Tarzan or PitFall style hook. To this generation, "Cheap kids reel from batgirl on shero" Even then, questionable. The backpack controlling grappling power globally with a few penguins in it too with speed hack livened up old game. I had it changing the field of view too so having the pack was like having glasses. If there is demand I can share.
