How to fly a jet???

#1redsoxrawesomePosted 10/27/2011 6:28:34 PM
I'm going to play this game for the first time tomorrow and want some advice on flying jets before I practice (I heard 1 co-op mission is great for practicing jet skills). Any tips and what co op mission is the practice one?

Just know that it's going to take a while to get the hang of it and start leveling up. You'll often fly around the map aimlessly and probably get shot down a lot at first. However, once you get a grip on the controls and unlock the important stuff, you'll own the skies. It'll also be a while before you can properly assist your team on the ground, so focus on anti-air flying for now.
Try switching the controls to alternate as well, the default options for the jets and heli's are painful.

I disagree with the above regarding controls

Whilst changing to legacy control is good for the bc2 vets i find the default controls more intuitive for jets and helis

Tried both and feel more comfortable with default

1) Get in Jet
2) Take off
3) Use flare/chaff to throw off my first stinger
4) Get hit by second stinger, bail out of jet and smash face on rocks trying to find the parachute button

...that's how I have seen it play out since Tuesday :p
