The jump glitch is a glitch in Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain which allows a single player to complete particular online objectives without a teammate using a super-jump.


Face the object you wish to traverse, roll and hit the X button as your character's back hits the ground. This may require a few tries to finally work and as such it will make certain objectives much more difficult.

  • Equip a back or auxiliary weapon
  • Activate the flashlight
  • Roll with the circle button
  • Hit the circle button again
  • Press the X button when the torchlight is in the ground
  • This will cause your character to jump if done correctly

Objectives for which this glitch works

Carthage, Michigan: Quarantine Zone

  • Retrieve Broussard's laptop

Sana'a, Yemen: Taherir Palace

  • Destroy SCUD missile mechanism

Taguang, Myanmar: Irawaddy Basin

  • Recover black box flight recorder

Kiev, Ukraine: Chechen Terrorist Base

  • Stop missile from launching

Miscellaneous points

  • In Carthage, Michigan: Quarantine Zone, the player can use the same technique to recover C4 charges from a building that is usually only accessible online. These explosives can be used to blow open a gate leading to Andre Proust.
  • In North Atlantic: Lorelei Salvage Rig, the player can also use this to access Mujari's location from the topside deck and this allows one to access a 10,000 point flak jacket.
  • In Tokyo, Japan: Murukawa Tower, it may be possible to bypass the security level even when the alarm is triggered using this glitch.
  • It is impossible to complete the team objective in Mazyr, Belarus: Belaya Vezha with this method because of the time limit.
  • Completing Yemen 2 while attempting to tackle this objective is rather tricky. Because Zohar's death will fail the mission, significant practice is required to destroy the SCUD missile.
  • In Kiev, Ukraine: Chechen Terrorist Base, completing the team objective is extremely difficult but possible.
