30. Re: BF3 Famas Rifle Changes Planned Dec 28, 2011, 20:06 eRe4s3r
I can only give you like.. 3 pointers.. its hit and miss.. a good pilot you will NEVER destroy with just 1 engineer doing stinger duty.

1) What you see, is not what the server sees. Just because it doesn't say locked, doesn't mean you can't shoot. There is a ever so slight delay between locked and shot (and between actual lock and client displays lock lock) So paint a heli and keep clicking fire, notice it fires BEFORE the lock appears.

2) Now that he popped flares aim somewhere at the heli where theres no flares in between heli and your targeting reticule. If you paint a heli with flares in the reticule it won't work. But you have some freedom where to actually point the targeting thing. As soon as you see the tracer tone again keep pressing fire until it fires and don't wait for the lock text. Its a guaranteed hit, haven't seen any pilot/gunner combo yet that suspected a quick refiring, most of the time when they hear the stinger and shot ping they dive behind the landscape, gives you time. Also makes it impossible to destroy them ;/

3) If all fails, find a server where people read the chat, ask for soflam at the heli and take javelin yourself. Best if its in your squad. Javelin is a 100% kill against flares.

One thing though, if you ever try to take down a jet with ECM perk with a javelin... forget it. These jets pilots can activate a sustained jammer against ALL (and multiple) missiles and often just fly straight up and jam once they hear a firing ping. Theres no way to down these with ground based weapons.
