Damned, Tormuse is right... red armor doesn't reduce knockback !
No knockback reductions are applied when rocketjumping. Just by the way.

A little bit late as a reply, but you can totally rocket jump for the purposes of Gatekeeper badges... provided you have Fireangel.

Good point, though a master before anomaly sounds a bit tight. You might be limited to UV and N! for that.

Have you ever tried rocket-jumping with heavy gear ? I just checked again (in case it changed in 0.9.9.7), and with T-modded grappling boots & onyx armor (plus Badass2, poor knockback :p), my rocket jumps don't move me at all.
I doubt there's any ignored knockback reduction when rocket jumping, where did you get such information ?

Pretty much, but it makes Gatekeeper Diamond a snap.

I think knockback effectiveness is doubled when you rocket jump or something to that effect.

Thanks! I guess I'll try that sometime. Does this mean you can rocket jump repeatedly and right through in between the bruiser brothers? x)

Yes (especially since Fireangel means Shottyman means you don't even need to stand still to reload your launcher), but you can only get Gatekeeper Platinum this way - Diamond requires you to kill everything.

HR2 works well too. Succeeded twice today @anomaly (I think I got a 3rd attemp, which failed). I didn't even skill DM.
I just noticed starting with SoB3 is powerful enough to own anything with a simple shotgun, no matter what you pick after.

Too bad I fail at Cybermdeon then... I should have got this badge at least twice by now...
(I probably had only a-modded boots, since I usually wait for WK2 to assemble tacticals, and I'm playing marine. Tac boots & scout must make it even easier)

GK Diamond requires UV anyway, and being level 6 at that point is achievable, if you visit (and preferably, complete) special levels.
