You know, when you throw the saber and it starts spinning around you?

hmm, no clue. maybe if you run in circles and the saber is trying to get back to you so it follows you in a circle?

nope, I tried that already. I did it once but I held both my strafing keys down.

uh yeah, thats exactly how you do it. circle strafing. Just watch someone do it, it's incredibly easy.

Yeah, ya have to go in a circle. I don't do it much, 'cause I usually don't use saber throw.

I'd figure you spin in a circle while saber throwing...

one time i saw someone just stand still with the saber "orbiting" around them.. if thats what you mean i have no clue.. BTW, when someone pushed the guy, the saber still circled where he WAS standing, not where he was currently standing... heh weird

Yeah I've seen that cow, and I relly want to know how to do it. I can easy circle strafe and have the saber now come back to me, but I'm lazy so I dont want to move.

You need Saber Throw Level 3, Throw your Saber and hold primary Fire, and I mean HOLD IT ALL THE TIME, then when the saber comes back strafe a little bit to the side, and dont forgt to hold fire.. If you did it right the saber should spin arround you.

If you taunt now, you can jump away and the saber will still circle at its Place as long as you hold fire.

when the saber is about to return to your hand, press strafe left, up, strafe right, down. continune pressing it non-stop.

But sooner or later, your saber will still return in your hand.
