A matrix uppercut being performed to clear a large gap.

A matrix uppercut, sometimes called a matrix jump or TLF boosted, is a movement technique that allows Jak to gain further horizontal distance from a normal punch uppercut than intended. By continuously rotating the camera during a punch uppercut, time will appear to slow down. The horizontal distance that is covered by the uppercut will be amplified during this slow down.

The circular rotation of the camera combined with the slow motion effect mimics the famous bullet dodging scene from The Matrix (1999), which is where the name Matrix Uppercut comes from.

This trick can only be performed on PSP instances of the game.
