View Full Version : JK's Legacy: Elevator Frag

Doom introduced the world to the "telefrag," while JK had the memorable "elevator frag."

Nothing was more amusing than shoving somebody (often with the force, or during a saber duel) into the space where a lift or elevator had gone up, and then have the platform come down and slowly crush them to death. ; )

The way they struggled as their body was pressed to the ground, and hearing the elevator straining, just made you feel so sorry for them, and try to finish them off before they got smooshed.

I will post some screenshots later of some of my favorite "squarshings" in JK. I hope that for old time's sake, this feature is included in JK2!

Perhaps there will be a new type of embarassing way to frag people? I can imagine that killing someone with a stun baton would be humiliating enough.

But the elevator frag is still the best!

Those deaths were so embarassing, yet comical.

Who can forget those tense moments, jumping into the elevator shaft to grab some health or bacta tanks. Knowing that the elevator is on its way down. Then trying to jump out but you keep bonking your head on the door frame as the elevator starts down... closer and closer it gets until... you finally jump through the door only moments before the elevator settles to the bottom of the shaft.

Force Pushing someone under elevators or into elevator shafts and watching them fall was very enjoyable. Man I can't wait to play multiplayer.

The Bespin multiplayer level in Jedi Knight had this one elevator that, you could 'fall through' or something... dunno if this was a bug or what, but you would fall through and usually be crushed to death, now that I think of it it only happened during really bad lag situations.

I almost elevator fragged Maw
He was pushed against the floor for a long time, but he managed to escape. After that I killed him quickly, the elevator damaged him a lot
Anyone else has done this?

I like the pit drowning type deaths.

this map i made so people can get pushed off the catwalk and fall into a lava pit, it decreases 16 of their health every 4 seconds, so u can look down and laugh at them.

Yeah, I drowned the clone Mara in MoTS, I just lured her to the water and pushed her in... quite hilarious. Took her forever to die though.

I did that too! :D
It takes her a loooong time to die that way

....you accidently try to force jump out and bonk your head on the incoming lift, only to have no time for escape by the time you come back down. You are crushed to death by an elevator and anyone that saw laughs really, really hard.

Happened occasionally, and not too many things were more embarrasing mind you than getting stuck and being squished to your death under a turbolift.

That was one of the best things to do (on levels like Bespin), send an elevator up/down with a stack of mines on the platform.

; )

I wonder if JK2 will have any traps? I loved the various traps in JK/MotS.. ex: the "force field + vacuum" trap in Bespin Mining Station, the TD dropping traps in Nar Shaddaa Loading Terminal (and Hutt Palace, Cargo Ship, etc in MotS).

I wonder also, if it will be like in MotS, how you could shoot ammo/explosive pickups to set them off (thus using them as trap, or a way to deny your opponents ammo)? That'd be pretty cool.

Hehe. Push them into an elevator shaft with a bottom and send 4 or 5 timed thermal detonators after them. :D

lol I hated the elevator in JHS where there's a secret room behind the shaft. I used to jump in and get the items inside and someone would push the elevator button and then *splat!*
