Techniques: L-Jump

Discovered by

kip, CAL Foolio

L-Jumping is a technique for getting extra speed and distance out of a jump.

To perform a basic L-Jump: Hold L, jump forward, and release L while Samus is about halfway up her ascent. You can do the same for the second jump, but the effect is much smaller by comparison. This time, release L immediately after the jump.

If done correctly, 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.
