Ensure that you have the grenade launcher, rocket launcher, at least 2 rockets and adequate armour and health before starting, the more of each the better. Select the grenade launcher and fire a grenade aiming to land on a particular spot (the launch position), one way to do this is to fire vertically in to the air as soon as you have fired the grenade switch to the Rocket Launcher and at the point that the grenade lands for it's second bounce move the launch position and fire a rocket directly at the ground. If you time it right, i.e. so that the rocket hits the ground at the same point that grenade explodes you should find that you are able to jump significantly higher/lomger than with just the Rocket Jump. The disadvantage is that it requires more ammo/weapons, usually takes longer to perform, which can be problematic during battles, and does more damage to your player. If you do this with the '10 health' left scenario as I (Mr.Burns) often do you will usually end up in an embarrassing crumple on the floor with your opponents standing around openly giggling

Trick Jumps are maneuvers that allow you to achieve a speed, height, or distance beyond what is usually possible with the physics of Quake. In general these 'features' were not intended by the designers at id Software, though there is some evidence that at least some of them were known to the designers during development. They are almost never necessary to progress through a level (with the exception of a few rare user-made levels), but can often be used to take a shortcut to another part of a level.
