In our Dying Light 2 Double Jump Not Working Explained guide, we’re going to cover several bases. For one, we’re going to show you how to double jump in DL2. As in, we’ll explain how to unlock it and how to trigger it. That, I think, will help you understand why it might not be working for you – you might just not be doing it right. And in your defense, it is really hard to pull off.
How to Double Jump in Dying Light 2
To double jump in Dying Light 2, and we’ll get to why it might not be working, you first have to unlock the ability through the Parkour skill tree. You can see where it is in the image above. Before you do, you can forget about having the double jump in your arsenal of moves. Once that’s out of the way, there’s still the matter of how to use it. The description in the skill tree is… a little off. If you think the double jump broken, it’s not, it’s just weird. In order to activate the double junk, you have to double-tap the jump button as soon as you initiate a vault. You also have to be looking at the ledge you’re trying to reach. The timing is really tricky to get down, you will need to practice it before you go messing around over deep chasms. In order to perform the double jump you have to double press the jump button right before you reach the obstacle.
So, that’s how to do the double jump in Dying Light 2, and that’s why you might think it isn’t working – it’s very finicky to do. If you can’t double jump, you might be doing it wrong. It’s basically like the far jump, but vertical. It’s sadly not like a Mario thing where you jump and then jump again while still in the air. That wouldn’t really fit the overall realistic, gritty vibe that the game is going for, wouldn’t it? So, before we wrap up, once more for the cheap seats in the back. First, unlock the double jump in the Parkour skill tree. Then, to execute it, double-tap the jump button when beginning a vault while looking at the ledge you want to hop to. Practice in places that aren’t too high up until you get the hang of it.
