Halo: Combat EvolvedEdit
To late jump in Halo: Combat Evolved you have to jump before you fall off of the object you are trying to jump off of. This can be difficult because you can't see your feet to tell where you are relative to the edge. You have to try to guess where your feet are and jump at the right time. Another thing you have to watch out for is when you are crouching. In Halo: Combat Evolved, if you jump and crouch your character will slow down to a crouching speed rather than a running speed. To counter this, you must crouch at the last possible second that you can.
To late jump in Halo 2 you have to jump right as you go off the edge. The character will go down off the edge slightly and then fall off. To get a late jump you have to jump right as the character goes down the edge. Once you have jumped you must keep holding forward and crouching until you land.
To late jump in Halo 3 you must let the character walk off the ledge before jumping. When you do this you can see your screen go down for a second. This is the time when you need to jump. If you jump any earlier and you won't clear the distance. If you jump any later and you will have so much downward momentum that you won't be able to jump.
