A tribute to slide launching

When 343i decided to patch my favorite ‘feature’, I decided to make a tribute to this short lived yet amazing exploit.
A few words from Skulk, who’s part of the community that first found out about this glitch:
'I heard from JT Tactical (jump theory from back in the day) that the exploit was first discussed on a forum, sort of as a “check out this bug” post, likely on teambeyond. […]Tactical and myself, just sort of going on the knowledge that it exists, went and figured our way of doing it, mostly credited to Tactical on that front. I spent ages looking for a way to turn it into vertical speed, hence the doing it on a ramp leading into another upward ramp. That’s where this video (New Halo 5 jump technique) came from. I was in the middle of creating a tutorial when I noticed several larger channels/forums talking about the exploit, and figured it was too easy to not get patched, so I delayed the video. Good thing I did :confused:
My theory is that it can still be done. Almost always, when Bungee or 343 patch anything outside of weapons, they just do a quick fix that ends up making it harder, but not impossible, ie. super bouncing, h3 hiding spots, etc.’
So I guess there is still a glimmer of hope for the super slide, but for now we’ll just have to enjoy the memory of it, and I hope this video can help with that.
