"When you mix jet fuel, potassium chloride and religious transcendence in just the right way, it blasts you into new heights not known to man. Throw the right amount of hydrogen gas into the mix and you got yourself one hell of a miniature space launch pad - for your personal use."

Summary

The Jetpack, otherwise known as a Rocket Belt or Rocketpack, is a device that is worn on the back of the player which uses jets of gas to propel users vertically and effectively escape hordes.

Unlike the DEMO version of the Jetpack, this does not regain fuel and the fuel capacity is significantly shorter.

Hold the spacebar to use this.

Background Story

At the beginning of the downfall, survivors were quick to resort to using what had become one of the most popular inventions ever created - personal Jetpacks - to escape their undead foes. The versatility, mobility and safety the Jetpack added were appreciated by all, and no doubt saved thousands of lives, but survivors quickly realised that they were unfit for use with heavy weaponry, and broke down easily over time. The original Jetpacks lasted only a few months until all that could be salvaged ran out.

However, over the past few years, as manufacturing, research and defence groups grew and grew, they never forgot the thing that helped them so much in the early days. Hundreds upon hundreds of hours were put into reproducing something that they knew might be impossible, but if they succeeded, would be one of the survivors' most useful additions to their arsenal.

The new Jetpack is currently undergoing preliminary tests, with many, perhaps not so satisfactory changes. It's at least better than nothing.

Tips

  • This doesn't have infinite fuel, and it does not regain fuel over time.
  • You cannot take fall damage from the small puffs this Jetpack supplies.
    • However, upon losing your Jetpack, you will take fall damage from whatever height you are at.
  • Use this for escaping Leapers! When a Leaper is rushing towards you, fly up to escape your impending doom.
    • You can also use this to escape most things in the game, in short notice.
  • This doesn't appear in your actual inventory, however, you can drop it upon death.
    • Anyone who picks it up gets the full amount of fuel, regardless of how much fuel it had before.
  • Remember, this is banned in Quest.
    • In Boss maps, this is advised to bring, to avoid the moves of the boss.

Trivia

  • This is the first item exclusive to VIP Servers.
  • One of the most speculative features in R2DA.
  • This is significantly nerfed from the days of the Jetpack from DEMO.
    • Differences include, but not limited to:
      • Smaller puffs per second.
      • Less vertical gain per second.
      • No fuel regained overtime.
  • If the Jetpack is selected on a Non-VIP Server, the message will say "Only available in VIP Servers." If the VIP Server doesn't allow Jetpacks, the message will say "This VIP Server has NOT enabled Jetpacks."
    • The buy button is also disabled for some reason.
    • You can equip & unequip it, but attempting to bring it into a round will result in the Jetpack not being used but it still stays in your inventory.
  • This is currently the highest ranked item in R2DA.
  • Getting Medkits through Arena, or through the gifts from Toy Factory, will cause the Jetpack to completely disappear. However it will still function like a normal Jetpack without the model. You can even heal with the Medkit. Probably a bug.
  • One of the three regular items not to be found in Regular Chests, the other two being the Airstrike and Flash.
