    So yesterday I threw a claymore down in the wooden building on firing range.

    Guy runs up the steps.
    He has neither lightweight marathon or hacker.

    Sprints in the room and jumps over my claymore.
    With the claymores more instant that MW2 he should not be able to set it jump over it
    And shoot me before he hits the ground.

    It's almost as if it skipped the frame where claymore explodes.

    I don't think that can be done homie. Are you sure he didnt throw a flashbang or q concussion?

    Positive it blew up and he was unscaved.

    I believe his set up was hardline soh and tac mask.

    I was in shock honestly.

    It can be done.

    I was playing TDM on WMD and i put a claymore by a door (it wasnt hidden round the corner or anything, it was quite poor positioning and my opponent could clearly see it before walking through the door) and he just ran and jumped over my claymore and landed the other side and proceeded to shoot me. Luckily for me I did get the next person to walk through the door and didnt see it.

    But it is possible to jump claymores. I dont know how and I would have thought it would have blown up. But I watched it back on killcam and he didnt die.

    Ok i can see it being possible with poor positioning.

    But dude if it blew up and he was unscathed, then thats also what happened to you. The blast of the claymore cones out to the shape of the red lasers, you need to set it up in a way so that your enemies trip the lasers, but will still be within the radius when it blows.

    Claymores are hit and miss. I often just run straight through them if I'm rushing. I've seen people do a little jump too but I'm not sure if it is this that makes a difference.

    I've done it using ghost. Doesn't happen very often and I'll be the first to say I did it by fluke but I've done it.:D

    I use Flak Jacket Pro, just run through claymores and kill whoever planted it before they realize I didn't die :).

    I can run through them too if they are too close to the door.

    I had mine angled perfectly and away from the door and straight at it.

    As soon as it clicked he jumped.

    How can you possibly react that fast when you don't know it's there?

    But how the he'll can you jump over before it clicks?

    You have a split second.

    Anyone can run through with lightweight and
    Marathon we know that

    I run Ghost Pro, Sleight of Hand Pro and Ninja Pro and there have been several times I have triggered a claymore and didn't die. There are 2 times I remember where it didn't even show a hit detection. I have had the same thing happen to my claymores, where people will just walk or run by them without killing them and they don't have flak jacket on. It happens.

    I don't think you all are understanding.

    Cleared out the building threw up a claymore turn to walk away and the guy flew in literally moving faster than I ever do with lightweight and smg.

    Jumped over claymore entirely and was halfway into the upstairs.

    Is there a kangaroo perk?

    i have been using this trick for awhile now, only works about 40% of the time tho, and you still get heavily damaged.

    i see people trying to jump over claymores all the time, i thought this was out in the open

    Also, i use the claymore as more of a door bell. i set it far enough away that i know when it goes off, there is someone behind me

    I know i could use the camera/motion sensor for that but for the time being i like using the claymore because it still has a chance of killing the person even if i leave my pearch

    It just may be a glitch. I have close to 700 claymore kills so I think i'm somewhat decent at placing them. I was also on firing range and had my claymore aiming straight outside of a door. I back up and a guy walks through the door and directly in front of the claymore, then steps over it, and then shoots me while i'm about to call in a napalm strike. The claymore never even went off. I thought the guy was hacking at first, but have now chalked it up to a glitch. I expect to next see someone walk on water...

    this has happened to me probably almost a hundred times by now.. The best is when they are standing directly on it not even moving shooting at you and it blows up and you dont even get a hitmarker. And i have to watch the killcam evrytime and they never have flak or lightweight on so im guessing its just the shitty reg in the game or there possibly glitched.

    Actually the radius is more than just that. Just the full impact is in the middle of the lasers. You can still get damaged if your close behind it especially when dropping right in front of your enemy. But ya a sprint/ jump can pass through it without getting hurt too much especially if not set correctly.
