i used to leave it on normal ammo but homers are useless now. planes just laugh at them and the rogue is very effective in pvp (im still sh*t at bombing but i have seen people who've figured it out and they're scary) even then it has cannons.

other than that rifle what are you doing against planes? i assume the half track is very useful now?

and also has anyone used gas bombs?

I agree to be honest. For one particular reason. Today I had someone in a Hydra shoot me down after collecting supplies in an ultra slow aircraft.

However, upon respawning I took him out with the explosive rounds. Collected my supplies and headed back to my hangar.

So yeah, explosive rounds in some cases are quite necessary.

I took my pink Hydra for a trip. Got show down. Ended up near the hangars. Whipped out my heavy sniper and explosive ammo. 40 rounds later my k/d had improved.

If in hangar check map outside before exit.

Yesterday me and a friend started a steal mission. Total war outside hangar. Total war. The end is here!

Pro tip: don't paint your Hydra a color that is so easy to spot, and it will be a little harder to spot and shoot down - pink kind of stands out. That's why the real military paints their planes gray, you know.

Actually, there were pink military vehicles in the second world war

The idea was first pioneered in the Royal Navy by Lord Mountbatten, who noticed early in the war that one civilian ship in his convoy, still painted a grayish pink color, did not stick out like all the rest.  The simple science is that pink absorbs light, thus making it better in many conditions than colors like black (which actually make you stand out more in low light conditions).  It proved so effective that he ordered all the ships under his command to follow his newly-developed paint scheme.  This insight was used throughout the war and even into the Gulf War, where modern British fighters and tankers maintained the light pink paint scheme.

Oppressor was practically designed as a defense mechanism for this update.

You need an Oppressor with rockets in order to survive this latest update.

And here I am about 3/4ths of the way through gunnrunning research and still have neither Oppressor Rockets nor Explosive ammo.

 

AA trailer SAM is really nice, though. Can't take explosives but if you have a friend in passive mode driving you around, you will die but the trailer will not take damage and you can still fire it.

AA trailer with the explosive cannon is what you want, Missiles are useless on everything.

 

Explosive sniper is good and deals with 99% of the fake ass jet pilots in the game, but the 1%ers out there still know how to get around it and keep the pressure up.

 

I wish people would stop spreading horsesh*t about he Oppressor... It is literally trash af against good Jet pilots... and poses absolutely no threat to anyone skilled in a jet, at all. 

 

At most it is an annoying little fly easily squashed.,

I'm a pathetic sniper, so it's been necessary for me since I unlocked the ammo. It's the only way I can one-hit kill BP-helmeted, BST huffing, marksman dancing suicide queens. :/

I have, but not against flares. IMO it's the most effective AA we have in the game right now. Go off the radar and just unload, it's only a matter of time until they go down. You can dodge 1 or 2 missiles, but not 30.

Yep. So is keeping the regular sniper and marksman in your wheel as backup for when your ES gets empty.

Wish you could toggle the heavy sniper between the explosive and normal rounds somehow without going to the moc.
