Jet Pack vs. Jump Pack
« on: Jan 30, 2013, 10:25 PM »
What is the difference between a Jet Pack and a Jump Pack? I was reading the requirements for RECON and it said an option was a Jet pack or Jump pack. Help please. Does anyone have pics of the difference.
Thanks.

from wookiepedia:

basically a jet pack allowed the user to fly and the jump pack allowed the user to "jump" a short distance.

Pretty much what Tobyn said. We see Boba and Jango Fett use jetpacks in the movies, which pretty much allowed them to fly and hover and such with a great deal of control. Jump packs are more of a flea-hop type of thing, from what I know they move you a bit quicker, though not quite as gracefully. Dark Troopers used them in the Star Wars Battlefront games, you could look up a gameplay video if you were really interested.
