The Jetpack is a Tools Gadget introduced in the 9.0.0 update. It enables players to fly around anywhere inside the map for a limited amount of time.

Appearance

The Jetpack is a jetpack depicted in most sci-fi movies, white a white coloring, with a black outline and a yellow warning symbol on the body of the Jetpack, some red and light blue stripes on the wings of the Jetpack, and black jet exhaust. On the back of the Jetpack, the word "FUEL" is written on it.

Performance

The Jetpack enables players to fly around using the Jump button once activated. Upon activation, the Jetpack starts to drain fuel for its duration, it can even drain more fuel once the Jump button (being a fly button) is used.

You need to hold the jump so it's hard to shoot for newer players.

Strategy

Tips

  • The Jetpack is quite useful for getting around high areas quickly.
    • The Jetpack also serves as a faster method to move around the map.
    • If you are using this gadget in Battle Royale, make sure to be closer to the ground when the gadget runs out, as you may take significant damage and/or die if you are too high up in the air.
  • This tool is pretty efficient when it comes to Flag Capture. It is because you can capture flags with ease while flying, and other players will experience difficulties in killing you due to you flying.
  • Be careful about where you're going to land. If the duration is about to expire in a few seconds, be sure you are flying above the ground, as you may fall into places where you die instantly, such as the floor in Ant's Life or the gaps between the structures in Parkour City.
  • A combination of the Jetpack and an area damage weapon could be useful to pick down opponents on the ground surface.
  • This gadget has been proven very effective against the Evil Bug and Slender Man bosses.
  • Light usage of the Jetpack is advised to keep its duration as long as possible.
  • Using the Jetpack will make you vulnerable and an easy target for players. Mainly snipers. So be mindful of that.
  • Try to strafe and use irregular movement patterns as the enemy will have less of a chance of hitting you.

Counters

  • It is difficult to shoot with an automatic weapon while using the Jetpack in the air, but that can lead to full Jetpack battles. Players are also vulnerable in the air, as it is easy to snipe on the ground at right angles.
  • Use a weapon or a gadget with the Manual Guidance attribute, since their projectiles will be able to follow users and damage them. However, it is best not to shoot them from very far away, since these projectiles won't be able to reach the targeted player.
  • Use a high-ammunition minigun, as you will miss quite a few shots trying to hit the user.
  • If the user is close by or has just activated the Jetpack, you can shoot them with a powerful weapon such as a shotgun or rocket launcher.
  • If you are able to kill the player while they are using the Jetpack you will receive the Duck Hunt achievement that´ll offer you 20 extra points.
