Tips[edit | edit source]
- Hover Boots can prevent any fall damage that could've been fatal. Classes with low mobility such as the Gunner and Driller will find this Perk useful as they have no means of lowering fall damage otherwise.
- By deploying Hover Boots after grappling to a high location, Scouts can much more easily dig out footholds and minerals without the assistance of an Engineer's platforms. If the fall afterward is high enough to be dangerous, the grappling hook will be recharged before the Scout hits the ground if the perk is at the max tier.
- Play more cautiously whenever this perk is not active, as it is unusable while it is on cooldown.
