OK, from some of the stuff ive seen I refulse to believe that people are pressing F2, firing and clicking to aim, tghen pressing f1 and managing to hit a jet.
Somethings not right - what am I missing?


Practice - and much more: enjoying choppers.


Dillman, cards on the table here - are you using the bog standard keys and pressing them individually or you got some key macro/recorder set up?
I'm just keen to know if its me being grumpy git cos I cant do it - I'll admit to leaving servers in frustration as to what I see as impossible moves in the base game/config with no special keyboard/software


I play on a macbook, standard-usb-mouse, no special keys. F1, F2. Some people know how often i hit 'esc' instead of these keys.
That will be my last words here, i'm sick of that "this is impossible", "your tv has a longer range", "seatscwitching = cheat" etc.
Thought that this shit has died in Bf2 - and ecspecially here at LS but .. well.


Thanks

If you want to shoot down a jet you have to spot him as he (or she) flys by, then keep the heli pointed at the jet and you can see on your hud if he comes round and flys back towards you.

SO if you want to shoot down a seatswitcher in a jet, dont go back for another try at the same height, come down from above or up from below or at least stay away from the heli for about 20 seconds so that you are no longer highlighted on his hud, if you managed to spot the heli when flying by you can see when you turn which way he (or she) is pointing and if he is following you or not.

How exactly is seatswitching cheating? BF2 was never meant to be a reality simulator - there's project reality for that purpose.

If anything, seatswitchers suffer a disadvantage against helis with 2 players since their heli starts spinning is predictable manners when the seatswitcher goes gunner seat. I only know a few actual good seatswtichers who can consistently seatswitch, keep awareness, kill people, not crash into shit and be more useful than most of the team combined. Seatswitchers do their team a favor, assuming the seatswitcher is good and doesn't get rekt, cause it allows the team to have one extra player where it's needed, like on flags.

And yes I manually pres all the buttons to seatswitch - F2, right click, guide tv, F1 again, and F2, c + aim with mg for MG seatswitching. When you do it a gazillion times it becomes a habbit and you don't even think about it.

There is literally no cheat that will make you an instant great heliplayer, although nametags are useful for awareness obviously. But nametaggers tend to suck as well. Aimbots in helis are basically useless and can only hit easy open targets.

Thanks

This just as simple as directing your second seat to your secondary mouse button, press it twice and shoot with left mouse button...

And some little advice, be sure to have your primary gun pointing to the left as the heli will turn right if you switch seat. This way you'll compensate it.

My 2 cents.

This I knew, in fact I hate it. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/twitter/twemoji/gh-pages/16x16/1f606.png But why do you say 'click twice'? I don't understand. http://emoji.tapatalk-cdn.com/emoji848.png

I believe what he's saying is that he remapped the gunners seat to his right mouse button (or whatever he has selected to switch from the chaingun to the TV missile) so that instead of pressing a separate button to switch seats and then switch to teh TV, you can just do it by clicking the same button twice. Seems to me like that would be a lot faster, I'll probably try it myself.

It is impossible. You can not use they same key for 2 different purposes (switching to gunner seat AND switching to TV guided missile mode by using the same key).
