Patched, but can you jump yet?

I don't understand games that don't allow jumping. A human being can jump. I mean I can even forgive games that don't have leaning, but no JUMP?????

There's plenty of good reasons jumping wasn't included, and I will explain that after the next comment.

When have you ever jumped in real life unless you are an athlete? How do you jump with 20 kg of gear on? Vaulting over fences and stuff, that could be added with a climb system or something.

So very true...jumping was removed because with it being a somewhat realistic interpretation of true military training and tactics (player actions notwithstanding), jumping isn't a part of it, especially to the degree that 99% of the players used it for. So the Devs incorporated the vault system to which if a player is near something and it is within reason to climb on or jump over, they will do so...of course, this is somewhat buggy and is prone to firing off at the wrong time, but at least it's a step in the right direction.
