Verdun is a realistic game. Of course there are compromises to be made between the realism and the fun factor / gameplay aspect of things.
However, low gravity jump like you would see in arena shooters doesn't have its place in Verdun.
Seeing soldiers (hilariously) bunny jumping the trenches ruins all the effort you guys have put in development to make this game the most realistic and immersive WWI game to date.
Not only the jump height is too high for a person without any gear on, imagine carrying a soldier's gear. Quick research shows that the average soldier gear weight during WWI would have been approx 25 kg (55 lbs). (It would have to be confirmed officially but so far all the numbers seem to gravitate around that mark)
Bottom line: measure how a real person jumps and adjust accordingly. I think the jump length is way too short as well.
1. Use a backpack (or school bag) with approx 25 kg (55 lbs) of weight it in, or hold two 25-30 lbs dumbbells. 2. Use a measuring tape on the wall, have someone jump next to it and another person measuring the jump height. 3. Have a measuring tape on the floor to measure jump length. 4. Fix Verdun jumping mechanics accordingly. 5. Make the walk function able to climb small obstacles if necessary.
