Warhawk Strategy Guide: Beta Battle Tips

Gaming Target provides ten tips to ensure Warhawk beta testers get the most out of their beta experience.

"Warhawk released to a select number of PS3 gamers in the form of a public beta, but because it includes no storyline and no single-player campaign, this multiplayer-only game can be a little confusing for the lucky downloaders. There is an online manual, but chances are gamers are going straight to war and entering battles unprepared. To better equip Warhawk beta testers and to improve the online atmosphere, here are some Beta Battle Tips for everyone." (PS3, Warhawk)

LMAO @ the binocs
I remember when I first picked them up. I was like, "what the hell are these things?" Then I zoomed in on an ememy target and BOOOOOOOOM! It's one hell of an explosion. They are perfect for taking out turrets and people protecting zones or flags.

I suck with the cruise missle thing.

Also ... if you don't have chaff grenades and want to avoid missle lock, stay close to the ground. Flying in between canyon walls will usually help you loose a missle lock. Hitting r2 and l2 at the same time is the equivilent of e-breaking around a turn in a car game.

If i Have a missile lock on my @ss, And no chaffs, I do a 180 flip and double tap R2 (after burn) and haul @ss. It usually works to shake any missile. If it's not already close to you.

Also, another tip that allot of players don't seem to do, is after burn straight up so your way high, and come down on your opponents from above. It's easy to locate someone who is being tricky trying to get behind you.
It's a tactic that goes way back to the Red Baron era of WWI and it still works killer!

Oh, it IS fun
Too bad this game isn't out now, SmokeyMcBearc. It's a lot of fun and a title that PS3 needs.

Thanks for reading this guide. I meant to add at the end that my PSN id is SwiderMan if you see me. Hope you found this entertaining as well as informative.

I think I might have played in a game with you the other night. Not sure if it was you or someone named "spiderman..."

"If some one from your own team accidentally kills you, don’t be a jerk and respawn only to get some payback. Whether they mistook you for an enemy and fragged you or they just hopped into a jeep and accelerated as you were standing in front of it, try letting them know politely over the headset. “Hey, MGSslyCooper, you know you just killed me, right?” Of course, if their name happens to be something like Xbox360isDaBest, go ahead and kill them over and over again. I’m not about to tell you how to treat fanboys on the wrong side of the system war"

I've got some good tips :)

- Turn on Pro Flight
- Brake while your Swarm or Cruise missle are locking onto targets
- If you're being attacked by AA, boost above cloud level then brake, and approach the AA from directly above where they can't see nor expect you.
- Always pick up Chaff power ups.
- While dog-fights are fun, attacking from range is superior. Boost away from your target in order to flank them, they won't expect you until they hear the missle lock.
