    Is anyone flying with 360 controllers? Just wondering what controls you have set up for jet and helicopter. Mainly the movement controls on the sticks. I can't work out the best arrangement.

    I've been using one. I did some simple remapping to change spotting and the flare deployment to a better location but left everything else stock

    I am in love with the M39!

    Sniper rifle needed? No problem, just kit it out.

    Assault rifle needed? No Problem, just kit it out.

    It is a monster at any range, but the lower rate of fire is a bit of a git. ACOG, foregrip, Suppressor. Awesome sauce.

    CPC server added as Fave, so I'll be on at some stage.

    I've messed around with mine so much now I have no idea what I should use. I have flares on my left bumper and spotting on the back button.

    It the pitch, yaw and roll I am having difficulty with....At the moment for jets I have roll set to the x axis on the right stick and pitch and yaw on my left stick. What do you use?

    Edit....BTW had some good games on Ziips server this evening/morning cheers.

    Right so my W/L ratio is improving. I am also almost always in the top 1/4 of the team now :)

    Oh and I finally unlocked heatseekers for the jets :lol:

    Unlocked heat-seekers in the Scout Choppers earlier.. Brilliant fun flying up as high as you can and waiting for enemy choppers to appear..

    Can also do some rather nice suicide vertical strafing runs. Oh and the AA guns can't hit you with either the guns or heat-seekers :)

    I left the joystick alone in terms of steering. Throttle up is right trigger, throttle down is left trigger, main weapon is right bumper, flares left bumper, spot y button, the afterburner is pushing down on the right stick and to switch from 3rd person is pushing on the left stick.


    Similar controls for the helicopters, however I can fly helis with k/m somewhat well so I don't use the controller as much

    once someone unlocks flares all heat seeker become utterly useless , unless you work as a team. The first one shoots, the second one waits until flares are deployed then fires before the flares reload.


    However they are very annoying to the driver, I've crashed several jets just by keeping a lock on them for extended periods of time without even firing

    Not quite. You've got 2 heat-seekers, if the pilot is isn't that confident they'll either fire them off during the lock on process, or when I've locked on. Wait until the flares have faded and go again, by the time you've got the lock and fired, their flares haven't reloaded.

    If they pop the flares after you've fired, well, why are you firing both rockets together? One is enough to disable an aircraft. One rocket will go after the flares, regain the lock after and fire the 2nd.

    great fun last night on CPC server. Lassar is a fantastic wingman!

    was it you harrasing Lassar and me on Kharg Island? whenever we take off, there's lock sound. we managed to shoot down the odd jets, but the lockon prevented us flying in the main area and have to fly in the hills.

    how many rounds does it have? 20 or 10?

    im loving the SKS, although takes 4 shots at range, it's a beast with 20 rounds, suppressor and ACOG.

    i use 360 controller. i set it up exactly same as HAWX (and cross with GTA). left stick pitch/roll, triggers throttle, bumper buttons rudder, X fire weapon, A boost, B toggle camera, Y bail. Pad: up flares, left/right weapons. spot is not ideal, it's select key.

    So the 360 controller should be just plug and play? Can't get mine to work :(
