Let's go clambering!
Hello goodly fellows...
Anyone care to join me in scaling a few heights?
Some, like the fens bungalow, are easy to jump up onto. Others can be reached by climbing trees.
Now, has anyone tried jumping onto the balloon?!
I was just wondering if I was the only person trying this yesterday. I was actually on one in the mountain region shooting down at the robots yesterday. I'd shoot duck to the one side to hide then come back over and shoot some more. Just messing around. How are you climbing the trees?
Good work. I recently scaled an electricity Pylon in the new Industrial biome to avoid a dog. All very Tremors...
Just jump at them and if they're a bit slopey (at an angle) you can "stick" and keep jumping up.

Just that pesky vitality thing. Bring ammo and cooked meat and a trombone for fun! I actually took someone's advice and was just blowing away on the trombone running away the other day. Just to be an ass.

Just imagine I'm playing the theme from The Love Boat.
I had a good spot of clambering yesterday, after seeing this thread. I came upon a mansion in a mountain biome situated next to a cliff. I jumped onto the roof, walked along the peak and was able to hop up onto one of the chimneys.
I started to play the trombone. Group after group of hunters arrived down at ground level, with none appearing to take notice of me, and in short order an internecine skirmish broke out, followed later by others. I couldn't see the space directly adjacent to the house from my vantage point, so I missed some of the action. But I did notice a few interesting things taking place:
At one point a group of 3 hunters approached. I heard a single BANG from a shot out of my view, and then all 3 dropped dead in exact unison! Clap clap! Very nice!
Although I didn't notice any of the hunters directly firing at me on my high perch, a couple of times in the space of 15 minutes or so I was hit with glancing fire. I surmise I was in the cone of fire of hunters some distance away, firing at an object on the ground. That got me wondering whether the 'bots thought they were firing at me at my x-y coordinate based on my trombone playing, but at the wrong z value (ground vs. chimney). I concluded probably not, since in that case I think I would have been hit by stray fire more often. My guess is that the hunters were attracted by the noise of the 'bone, but held their fire (except for each other) since they couldn't see me. And here we thought only human players are vertically challenged in videogames!
One last observation: in my entire time on the chimney, none of the 'bots pathed to the top of the cliff that I jumped onto the roof from. If they had done so, I would have been a sitting duck.
