Rocket jumping is simple and easy and easy to learn. First you aim at your feet. You left click and hit space bar at the same time thus causing you to use the blast wave as a boost to jump higher. 

Advanced Rocket jumpingEdit

Advanced rocket jumping is no different then a standard rocket jump. To get half way across the map. You basically do the same as the regular up one.
