The Jetpack is a very important tool used in all tribes games. In order to activate the Jetpack, the player must click and hold the right mouse button. This utility is required to help with increasing acceleration by flying up over hills while skiing down them. The Jetpack can also be used in small bursts to evade explosive rounds such as the Spinfusor disks. In addition, the Jetpack can also be used to reach heights that would otherwise not be accessible. While skiing does not decrease your energy pool, Jetpacking does. Heavy classes burn energy at a much larger rate than medium and lights, making them less mobile than other weight classes. It is also worth noting that medium armored classes can usually Jetpack longer than any other armor classes due to a larger energy reservoir.
