    Sliding: Dive or baseball-style? (Random midnight thought)

    Do you dive headfirst into a bunker or slide baseball style? I would think with a regular baseball slide the pack owuld get in the way if you went too low. I guess it would depend on terrain and bunker size mostly but what do you do most often?

    I stay kind of upright while sliding on my right leg, so that when I come to rest I am ready to shot, and I can also shoot while sliding using this method if im really forced to.

    i remember when...

    my teammate did a head first rolling dive over a small air bunker...

    yup

    stats:
    Injuries = minor bruises/scratches
    Impulse = nearly destroyed (needed a few parts)
    Pack = Status: OK
    Hopper = Fell off
    Pods = broken with soupy paint in them
    CO2 tank = needed a new guage

    I guess he's alright but he hasn't done it since

    Kinda baseball come knee slide, so that when i slide in to the bunker i can continue firing straight away without needing to reposition myself. However needless to say it is not always the case, i sometimes end up goin REMOVED NO CURSING -cphilipwitrh the momentum of the of the run

    I mostly do baseball style slides. I wear my pack pretty high, so it's not in the way. I have done the superman slide, but mostly because I tripped first.
