Just Cause 2 diaries #2


By Blackwalt - Posted on 02 April 2010

So since Moricerevek mentioned the Mile High Club I thought I would start there.

First, it seems to be easy to spot and I think players get to it early.

Just not always on the first try.

So I was completing a Race Challenge – Sawah County Crossing, a plane flying challenge - when I saw something in the distance. I didn't complete the challenge on my first try so instead I decided to check out the giant floating thing. Who wouldn't be curious?

I flew toward the hovering object and ten minutes later I could finally make out what it was.

It turned out to be two giant dirigibles supporting a floating city. A small city. As I flew closer the loud bass beat of the music showed me that it was a club of some kind.

Deciding to take the cautious approach I chose to land on top of one of the dirigibles.

Turned out not to be a problem as I made a gentle two point landing (I was in a chopper).

However, landing wasn't the issue...

Turns out that the top of a dirigible wasn't flat. And it was kind of slippery. I didn't have a problem but my helicopter didn't stick the landing.

This photo shows my helicopter slowing sliding off of the dirigible to an uncertain fate. Not a positive fate sure, but uncertain. I chose not to go with it.

So that was my ride gone. Hope I didn't need it. I figured I could grapple down between the dirigibles and make it to the club and that's kind of what I did. Except for the part about the club.

Halfway down I got stuck between the dirigibles and had to force my way through to one end. Then I jumped fell down toward the club.

Fast.

Wow, that's a lot further than I thought it would be.

...

Still pretty far. Maybe I should pop my parachute.

...

Definitely parachute time. Pop.

So there I was positioned perfectly to gently float down under the comfort of my billowing parachute to the floating club that I had been so curious about.

Except for the vicious cross winds that blew me away from the club and tumbled me around so badly I couldn't get my grapple targeted on anything.

Blown out to sea, no where near the club. Not the first time I had to land in the ocean in the middle of nowhere and surely not the last.

I wonder if my helicopter is floating around here anywhere?
