Bunny Hopping and G-Walking have been part of the Call of Duty arsenal because players need an edge in combat. Both moves will require you to exploit your current range of motion to gain a better position or run away from enemies. The recent discovery of C-Hopping will add another move option to the player’s move set, giving them more of an advantage if they can pull it off.
C-Hopping involves getting into a vehicle and driving around to increase speed. As soon as you gain enough momentum, lower the car window, then jump out of the car and prepare your weapon. The force from leaving the vehicle will push you a great distance, and you will be able to crouch or move around shortly after leaving the vehicle. Here is a tutorial for this step in action.
Unlike Bunny Hopping or G-Walking, you cannot perform C-Hopping without a vehicle. You also have to drive into any conflicts for C-Hopping to have any value, since it’s a move designed to get you ready for a fight after getting out of the car. You also have to think about where you’re going to land, as the force can throw you at an unintended destination. This is not a move that can be used frequently, unless you are close to a vehicle. Even then, you need to build speed to generate momentum to move.
Fortunately, the benefit of C-Hopping is that it can throw you behind cover, preventing other players from getting a good chance at you. Since you arrived by car and have a rough idea of where the enemies are, you can quickly change position behind cover and immediately go on the offensive. It also doesn’t take as much practice to learn as other movement options, allowing you to do the move once you know how to get out of the car.
Like everything else in Call of Duty, you will need to practice in order to get the basics right. You’ll throw yourself in a bad position, or you’ll get out of the car normally and get shot in the process. But if you can master the movement, you’ll be able to get into gunfights and position yourself effectively. Combined with Bunny Hopping and/or G-Walking, you’ll have enough advantages to keep yourself alive in the middle of a gunfight.
If you’re not interested in C-Hopping or it’s not your favorite vehicle, you can ignore it completely. But it never hurts to add a new move to your arsenal. You never know when you need to exit a vehicle quickly, or how to quickly hide when you arrive in a fight.
