Tips on how to fly a savage?

Recommended Posts

Now if you were naive like me and thought the savage was gonna be the next best thing in the air then I bet you suprise when you bought it.

 

Savage Pros

-Explosive rounds

-No Missile cooldown

-Fast Forward Speed

-Might just be enough to take head on jets

 

Savage Cons

-Feels slower on strafing

-Bigger target(long tail)

-Nose is hard to point down

 

Tips

-Use cannons on ground targets

 

-Because they nose is hard to point down, a tactic thats very useful is to pull back on the l stick while pressing on the right trigger then immediately slamming down while pressing the left trigger. It takes a little practice to try to spin left or right with rudders and be accurate because you have a brief period. of take your shots before the helicopter levels itself.

 

If your taking out someone in an insurgent it would better to orbit it at far distane in first person. Trying to nosedive on it would be a dumb option since it has alot of health

 

Third person is ideal for taking out most target to monitor your helis body from hitting walls since its tail is long. But first person might be a better option to take out targets but remember to commit to the dive

 

Fly really high or really low. There other players out there...with homing launchers! Since the savage is harder with strafing ...its harder to doge missiles. Fly higher than maze bank if your traveling to locations. Fly at a 15 foot level when flying low to kill players and strafe around buildings.

 

The reason i say the savage can take on the jet is because it has unlimited rockets baby!. The moment you see a hydra or lazer griefer show its back ...hold x or a and let the rockets fly. Watch until your opponent slips and crashes tring to dodge every missile.

 

If your in a situation when a jet is in front you... Pull back and dive while not letting go of left trigger.

 

If another helicopter locks on to you while from behind...wait tillthe missile is close enough then pull back on the stick while back while rudding left or right...depending on opponents position

 

I dont have any tips on dodging homing missiles launchers since I still have trouble with them. Feel free to comment some tips below on tips for this

 

THATS ALL!!

It's a flying tank. I don't regret the purchase but the buzzard is still king in my books because of speed, agility and size.

If you don't want to read that much, follow this guide instead:

 

1. Press R2/RT to fly off the ground.

 

2. Press R1-L1/RB-LB to turn.

 

3. Use the Analog stick to control it.

 

4. Guns...well, f*ck guns. Figure that out yourself.

 

Tip: Avoid other players

It's Buzzard MK-II, tbh.

 

If you always have friend tagging along, buy a Valkyrie instead.

Fly full speed into any hard surface and kill yourself so a random with an itch to shoot you out of the sky doesn't get you.

The Lone Wanderer

bombard npcs with missiles from max range, fire cannons at target vehicles and when you don't mind destroying it. don't bother using it against players as jets are better.

actually passive spamming makes it semi effective against players but that requires good timing.
