you really like that? i mean, it's not bad with a controller(when it doesn't glitch, which is everytime if you use custom controls) but with a mouse it's terrible, either not accurate enough(using binary input) or too slow(using mouse)

I heard that the flight mechanics in "Star Wars Battlefront" were very similar to that campaign War Story's plane controls.

I still crashed quite a few times by the way, so I am by no means a half decent pilot in any sense.

i never crashed, i even did some of my favorite maneuvers(deep dive and then nose up at the last second), but it took me like 3 minutes to destroy a single fighter plane.

on the topic of fighter planes: i only used them once or twice in the beta and not even once in the alpha, i didn't like them, do they suck as badly now or are they different?

Perhaps i should try the bomber hunter kit, like Gauss is suggesting, it is really tempting to put that kind of agility to good use. And bombers are an often occurrence in every game I played.


Only use the fighter if you want to dedicate yourself to a flying AA. With that bomber killer excels at taking down other aircraft and the zeppelin, but not really anything else.
To give an idea how powerful the rockets are taking down aircraft, play the final mission of "friends in high places" and use the rockets against the bombers. Multiplayer rockets are like 75% as effective as the campaign rockets against other planes, and like 10% as effective against ground forces.

do they suck as badly now or are they different?


If you want an agile plane to engage a variety of targets, then the fighter sucks, and the attack plane is the obvious choice. If you want to establish complete aerial superiority with one vehicle, then there is the AA truck or a Stationary AA.

If you feel dirty using such a cheap and easy way to take out planes and you wanna pretend that you're an Ace Pilot who avoids the nastiness and the horrors of the trenches to be a knight of the sky then use the attack plane and have a buddy with you.

If you get in a fighter plane, and you are not used to flying, dogfighting, or there is already a fighter plane on your team in the sky, then you are wasting an air vehicle.

You are probably going to have more fun in either the attack plane or the bomber.

If I feel the enemy land vehicles/ground behemoth are becoming oppressive, the bomber is my go to plane. That said I hate the lack of counterplay against SAA in a bomber. The real only way around it is to fly near the alt limit and be a high alt bomber.

If you come on an approach vector towards an SAA and it starts shooting you as you come towards it, just bail out, you will not save the plane. I've tried.

I started doing the plane medal last night and I can agree that the base Fighter loadout is underwhelming. The plane itself is nice and can outmaneouvre other planes with ease, but that's about it. Quick repair is useful but the MGs deal pitiful damage, even when you manage to land a full burst until overheat (managed around 50-60 with full bursts). Granted, you don't need to do as much leading as with the Ground Support/Tank Hunter Attack Plane, and they're the best A2A planes, but having more than one feels like a waste of slots.

Also, not finding the afterburner/speed boost very useful on those planes that have it, compared to Quick Repair or Wing Repair, at least.

I find majority of the complaints I hear about this game somehow never appear in my games.

ISn't' the whole flavor of Bf1 that vehicles are supposed to be more deadly but also more scarce, in BF4 you barely had to wait for a spawning tank/jet. In Bf1 you'll need patience if you're just going to camp the deploy screen.

The Pom-Pom is one of my few complaints in BF1 (although mostly just on Monte Grappa); mainly its range, but also its extreme impact effects, definitely seem to good right now.

It's interesting, the Pom-Pom is too good (AA), the Field Gun is pretty much perfect (AT), and the mounted HMG is pretty bad (Anti-Infantry).

I find the Heavy Machine Gun borderline impossible to use with how much of my vision is blocked while manning it on the map Amiens. At least those metal plates offer some bit protection, I think.

The Field Gun really is in a good spot currently. I believe it is capable of fully destroying the Light Tank with two solid shots.

also it's the only stationary after the AA to be able turning around 360
