  • Using lazer guided bombs.

    Hey guys, i was wondering if you had any good tips on using lazer guided missles, they are the most powerful individual explosive in the game ( parked a tank heli and jeep together down runway and blew em all up easily plus the uav trailer) but i cant seem to get any kills with them, do you guys have any suggestions/tips for using them?

      make sure you have a competent pilot and then just point the laser at something

        Tell him to slow to stall speeds (500-600Mph) Your a big target, so watch it, but slow speeds make for easy bombings.

        Oh ya, and practice if u can, go up real high, and switch between pilot/gunner and try that.

          high altitude and "spotted" ground targets might help too...

            one tip: don't blow up unoccupied enemy vehicles at the UCB.

              Beatnik - Laser-guided bombs require a lock which you cannot get on unmanned vehicles.

                Well, first I would say don't think of it as a "laser guided" bomb, it's actually a controller-operated bomb. It's a "mindset" difference - there's no laser, *you* are directing the path of the bomb. When you click your left mouse button, the missile will be directed to the current location of the crosshairs.

                The key to hitting moving targets is to adjust the path of the missile in-flight; that takes some practice, but you'll eventually get the hang of it. You have to be somewhat close to start with, though, because there's a limit to how far you can re-direct the missile's path.

                  You get a lock with lazer guided bombs-but they're not controllable in flight. This isn't the way they work in real life.

                    What are we talking about here?
                    Attack-helo TV/laser-guided missiles which are guided by the gunner?
                    Or
                    Bomber IR missiles which acquire a lock and self-guide?

                      Unfortunately both of these have the same "TV" look to them. I find the bomber missiles way more effective than the chopper missles.

                      Using the chopper missiles are like trying to fire an SRAW out of a blackhawk.

                        I find the TV guided missiles in the attack chopper to be the single most effective and rewarding weapon in the entire game. Period.
                        You can hit things so far away they might not even see you yet.
                        You can change your aim after you fire.
                        You can take out any vehicle(full Blackhawk, troublesome Tank, anything) in a single shot.
                        Your pilot doesn't have to hang around for the shot to hit - once you fire, he can move on while you guide it in.
                        You do have to get the hang of steering them in, so it takes practice, but it's far more dependable than the AT rockets or the heatseekers or any other missile/rocket in the game.

                        And you really haven't lived until you've watched a Blackhawk fly by on your right, then your pilot turns around and gives you a nice, straight, hovering, beauty of a shot and you get to see not 1 or 2, but 6 kills in one glorious shot. Oh, to hear them cussing. :D

                          Actually you can do all those same things with a Lazer guided bomb if you have a good pilot who flys relatively stable. And-you can kill alot more things with a lazer guided bomb-from farther away (sans missle sniping-which is iffy usually)-while going faster.

                          *edit: the tv-guided missles are good for hitting clusters of infantry if you know where they are. Can't do that in a bomber. Nor can you use your Lazer guided bombs as anti-transport chopper weapons. Sadly. heh

                            Dude - you are completely wrong in many ways. Duckilama is right.

                            No, the effective range on the Helo missiles is greater, since Bomber IR-missile lock-acquisition range is shorter.
                            You cannot change your aim, so you cannot prioritize targets. In fact, you have the risk of friendly fire which is out of your control. Chopper missile does not.

                            That's a ridiculous statement. You have Sidewinders! Why did you even SAY that?? That's like saying, "Too bad I can't use the coaxial machine-gun on my Abrams to take out enemy APCs."

                              To my knowledge, the Laser Guided missiles on the jets and bombers will NOT lock onto friendlies.

                              More on strategy of use:

                              Hover your crosshair over a lit target for a second or so to get a lock.

                              When you are searching for and aquiring targets with the laser guided missiles, keep in mind that they fire forward and down from the jet and _do not_ turn worth a damn. Don't fire on something that you've locked on to that is to your left or your right. The laser guided missile cam has a wide range of view (180 degrees plus about 90 degrees of pitch) but a narrow angle of fire (about 25 degrees left or right of the nose).

                              Once you are locked on and the target is within the above ranges, fire away and it will home straight in on the target.
