Never EVER use the supplied vehicle if you can help it.

Except for the nokota missions
And the glorious Hunter.
Still haven't gotten one of those missions yet :(
They keeps the precious aways from mees

Thr trick is easy to learn.

 

Go slow, go low and bomb much, much earlier than you think you need to.

 

Remember, you not only have a delay between pressing the bomb drop and the actual drop, but you also have a falling distance with the bombs travelling forward as they fall. Once you get your eye in you can start bombing and turning onto second targets mid run. Doing things like the airplane graveyard get really easy once you get some practise.

Agreed :lol:

Finally got a bombing run source mission few days back, and oh god, I could not hit anything, so I ended up crashing the damn plane, and called in my APC to get blow all the targets up :lol:

 

I am so glad that's an option. It would suck if they made the mission fail because the specified vehicle was not used/got destroyed.

 

That being said, if everyone on here is so terrible at bombing, maybe look into becoming stand up comedians. You'll make a killing!

I love flying the Starling around, but all of my kills have been with the missiles. I really suck at bombing. I often end up hitting the wrong street entirely. I've never hit anybody with them. I notice I won't crash with the bombing camera activated, but then I can't turn, and end up missing with the bombs anyway. Maybe I'm just overthinking my bombing runs. Any tips on dropping bombs effectively, or am I just hopelessly unable to use a seemingly easy weapon?

 

 

Beware that gravity is different on earth compared to Mars. You probably drop your bombs too early ;-)

The bombing mechanic sucks balls, while in Bombay camera pilot should be able to RB or LB plane tail to counter-stear and be able to speed-up or slow-down but none of these options exist.

Plus the bomb camera should have, y'know, bombsights.

This is my dude's video. Notice how he dips the nose prior to bomb release. After you get this down and start hitting targets you'll get a greater sense of the bomb speed and trajectory. Once it becomes familiar you'll be able to add in variatilons like height, speed, angle, etc.

I've made some test, (for bombing player, not vehicles.) With my hunter (so I can be stationary while I drop my bomb.) And even with the explosive ones, you have to hit the player WITH the bomb ro kill it, if the bomb drop like 1m away from him, the explosion will not kill it and he'll go through. So the large explosion is kinda pointless. May it's a bug with the damage's radius or something cause I'm certain that if a bomb explose one meter away from you, you can't really be ok ^^'

Was practicing bombing in my Hunter last night playing Los Santos Connection and gas bombing the drug deal. I can manage to do a great job of literally bombing every area around my target without hitting it. Bombed all of the buiIdings around the alleyway, and both of the cross streets before finally managing to hit my target some 20-30 bombs later. I was amazed at my lack of ability.

I've become godlike with the seabreeze. Fyi it takes four bombs to kill a hunter. Three sends it to the ground. I think that's too much work, especially if they have a gunner. Bombing helis really is amazing. Buzzards are done with one bomba but they are a hard target to catch.

Can you change the bomb drop button on pc? I searched everywhere but couldn't find it, having a different key to drop bombs would really help.
