I have been playing Warhawk for about 3 years, and I'm ashamed to say that I'm still not very good at flying. I've tried normal and pro, and I prefer Pro because I feel like I have more control, but it's more difficult to avoid missiles without chaff.
Recently I've been playing where people have been doing this "reverse lockon" trick, and it's really starting to *(&&^ me off. I'd like to know if any of you could describe how to do that. When they do it, I have no way to avoid getting hit, and I get killed every single time.
I'd also appreciate any suggestions on what control combinations could be used to avoid missiles while flying in pro mode. I currently push the right and left sticks up and down, which kind of rocks the plane up and down, but I still end up getting killed because they end up catching up to me.
I'd also really like to know how someone can fly in normal mode for an entire game and have the entire team shooting missiles at them, and somehow they're able to live. Even when I switch to normal mode and go into crazy barrel rolls and shoot up and down, I still will get killed nearly every single time.
Please, if you know the answers, please share them with me. It seems as though many of the really good players want to keep their tactics as secrets, and I have no one to just "practice" or experiment with.
