How to use the jet pack / orange helmet in Half-Life?

Video games

I wonder how I can use this jet pack item in Half-Life. It's the orange helmet which can be found on every multiplayer map. Is there a hotkey to use it to make a long jump?

Like this: crouch first, then jump while crouching.

You could also use a keybind to use the jetpack with just one key on your keyboard. Add this lines into your steamapps\common\Half-Life\valve\autoexec.cfg. It will allow you to use the long jump by pressing “space”.

//jetpack / longjump alias
alias "+lj" "+duck;wait;+jump"
alias "-lj" "-jump;wait;-duck"

bind "space" "+lj"

You need to pick up the orange helmet. Once you picked it up you will be able to make a long jump by pressing:

  • Crouch and while crouching press jump

If you die in multiplayer you will lose this item and you need to pick it up again.
