Techniques: L Jump

Discovered by

kip, CAL Foolio

L jumps are merely a standard jump with an added button press. Tap L just before, as, or after pressing B to jump. The timing isn't precise at all, so it's not very hard to learn. Samus should jump forward quite a distance, about twice as far as a standard jump. Once you're comfortable with them, L jumps should basically replace standard jumps. If doing a space jump of some kind, an L jump is also a great starter.
