Legolas/Bonk | Stealing Rockets on Sidewinder

Ever felt short of rockets and caught out in the open on Sidewinder? Legolas discovered a quick way to reload - no base-entering needed! (The game must be set on Rockets Only for this to work - otherwise, you're gonna get hit with flying shotguns. Which, upon reflection, might not be a bad thing...) Stand where the upper player in the following movie is standing, and fire a rocket into the Blue base's sniper perch, and fire at the right-hand wall. Positioned right, you won't even have to move to reload - the guns come to you!
