    Gravelpit Teleport Trick

    This is a relatively quick way of getting to the roof of the shed next to B, there were probably ways of getting here prior to the update but they were either extremely tricky or extremely long-winded.

    Provided you have the Wrangler, getting to this roof is attainable during Setup time.

    As usual, practice makes perfect and you can have up to 10 seconds of Setup time if you do this solo. Also if you want to get the job done quicker, bring a friend!

    Enjoy the video and have fun with the Wrangler!

    EDIT: I'm very aware that this was possible before the update but I doubt any previous methods of reaching the roof were easier than this. I'm also aware that there are lots of better locations for the Wrangler and I will probably collect some demos of them for a new video if they haven't already been found (there are already a lot of Wrangler jump videos now.)

    The point of this video was to demonstrate a quick way of reaching the shed next to B, the roof of B is arguably a better location but with the shed you can prevent 2 important entrances to B whereas the roof of B is too far away to do any serious damage to this area.

    I'm sure there are better places tbh, but its (relatively) fast which is good. real wranglers do jump maps solo ;)

    yeah I'd think the old teleporter jump trick on the actual building at B is better, and could be achieved pretty quickler with the wrangler now.

    There is indeed much better places and uses for the Wrangler, I chose this location mainly because I hadn't seen any other videos of it yet.

    You could do this before the wrangler got released.

    But now you can build on A buildings roof, and its really awesome, although bad place for a sentry.
