OK marsta:) I'll try to smash out a few tips for the noobies:) anyone feel free to add:)
Build and Battle
-don't build multiple structures in the same area. The 32 limit will go fast if there are 3 hawk pads, 3 jetpack dispensera etc. Use the "reclaim structure" feature if you notice multiple buildings next to each other.
- don't turret farm at home base.... Get out of the home base andf build forward spawn points if possible or go for the flag. this isn't command and conquer:)
- walls - all you need to protect a flag is 3 walls in a triangular pattern. Don't use your teams build limit on elaborate walls. Also if you are buildig walls around the flag, put the ladders on the outside. that way when someone does get in they can't easily escape with the flag.
- use the right weapon for the right range and switch to the right weapon if the battle changes range.
- knife - very close
- shotgun/grinder - short to medium range
- rifle and rpg- all ranges but ideally medium range. rpg will have to be a direct hit to kill.
- sniper - long range
- sounds silly to say it but aim for the head, you'll do more damage to the target
- shoot in bursts with the rifle, it is more accurate
- don't forget about grenades. they can kill quickly and help you win the firefight
- also don't forget about build and battle - throwing a quick auto turret down in the middle of a firefight can help turn the tide of the battle.
- on the ground jumpig up and down when running away will make you take less damage (stoopid I know) it does work though.
keep your map open as much as possible (this is good advice for air and ground). It will allow you to know what's going on around you. You will be able to anticipate attacks and react before missiles are launched or before someone is flakking you in the ass.
Flak is your friend - make sure to go for the pick ups and use at close range for easy kills. If in CQC try to put the flak in front of an enemy hawk to do max damage.
shield - when not attacking you can leave the shield activated to protect you against the stealth/flak combo. the shield is also great for fighting on the ground and stomping. Keep an eye on how much damage your shield has remaining (bottom right corner)
stealth - stealth is handy for getting away in a tight spot. do not stealth and flyin a straight line as you can still be killed by flak. also the starhawk stealth in mech form is handy as if you stay still you are completely invisible. This is very handy for zones. I often stealth, land in a zone and start taking it, then when my stealth runs out, switch to shield.
clusters - they are going to be nerfed soon:( at the mo try to o for groups of enemies. also as there are 4 shots you can aim for one target and switch your reticule mid shot to another to get multiple kills.
Also in general I would encourage anyone new to the game to get up in the air as much as possible. you may get owned initially but once you get the hang of it, you'll be dominating.The way to excel at this game is to master all of the skills and vehicles.
see you all in the skies:)
just figured this one out too....
Flak is nw awesome against ground vehicles etc. very effective against jetbikes which are very hard to take out with mg. It also works vs tanks and razors:)
Play the single player campaign. I learned a few things that I wouldn't have figured out otherwise
Some tips taken from the EU forums for the OX Tank!!!
-DO master the left-right weapon selection, the catapult weapon is amazing, allowing safe destruction from behind cover or out of line of sight (on fracture zones I massacred enemy buildings from a higher vantage, couldnt see a thing but bye bye beam turrets etc. anywayz
DO NOT spawn an OX tank garage where it cannot be defended, cos it cost mucho rift and needs to be used, not left to get all dusty.
-Combine the Ox tank with the field mechanic skill and you will survive a TON of abuse.
Dont: When firing the mortar cannon aim for the ground directly in front of you while it is reloading, as the enemy can see your impact guide lines. Not aiming at the ground gives your position away to the enemy while you are waiting for the cannon to reload.
-The passengers passive skills will also transfer to you and your tank. For example if the passenger is using the skull that stops them coming up on radar, you and your tank will also be hidden. Also works with the one that blocks turret fire.
-Always fire booth rounds or reload. Never roll with just one round ready.
-To defend against mine laden sidewinders, simply lay a mine of your own on the back of your tank. Nothing like giving them a taste of their own medicine.
-To get a slight boost to your movement speed, fire the turret behind you. The recoil propells you forward. Use the radar to see the, path ahead. Use with caution.
-If under sniper fire, drive in reverse, so that you can't be shot at from inside the tank.
DON'T fire on uneven surfaces, or steep hill tops if possible. The reticule may be targeting someone but your cannons may end up firing into the air or just off target. Also, the recoil is pretty strong so it push you back down the hill, forcing you to get back into position.
Keep the hell away from enemy infantry 'cause if they get too close and they have bruiser - 2 swipes and you're dead! Although that's set to change in the next patch!!!
-If you have afreind with the repair gun he can repair the tank but must aim at the cannons of the tank the two big things that fire your rounds if you catch it right you can repair on your travels thanks

hippi_killa83 and myself used this the other night in a Razorback. I had field mech and he had turrent jammer. I drove and he manned the gun and it work great.
This would have to work with a third person in the jeep also wouldn't it? Keep ya off the radar? :CoolDevil:
