So, I had the jetpack and the Golden Scepter. I had to jetpack up to the higher parts of the area for more ropes, and the stupidest thing happened. MY JETPACK RAN OUT OF FUEL. I know it can run out, but I only used the jetpack ONE OTHER TIME. So, I was screwed out of a perfect run, but then realized. I could have just jetpacked out of the pit instead of using ropes...

Heh, unfortunately what killed you was a misunderstanding.
The jetpack has a set amount of fuel per flight, and is recharged whenever you land on the ground, and maybe when you hang on a ledge, can't remember.

And yeah, that sucks somewhat.

Oh, just while you're here, this was my shoplifting one. I only found one shop in the entire game, and robbed it only because my Scepter locked onto the shopkeeper. I took the jetpack only.

Hehe,  yeah.
I usually don't bother robbing a shop if I already have a shotgun, since it's usually the best reward. A jetpack is good, though.  Wink

Yeah, Jetpacks only regain fuel when you're standing on solid ground.  If you catch onto a ledge, it doesn't refill, so you have to be careful and make sure you actually land somewhere occasionally. Tongue
