So, I have encountered my fair share of Falcons ingame and wanted to give the aspiring Falcon pilot some insight on how to fly the Falon in the most efficient, yet daring way.
1. Try to decloak as close as possible to your opponent.
This one should be the most logical one: The closer you are, the more JAM AWESOMENESS your Jammers will rain upon your foes. Don’t mind the impending doom that is pretty much everything shooting you when you miss a jam, because you won’t miss a jam. You’re a Falcon! You’re simply awesome! No way someone should be able to shoot you, let alone kill you.
2. Always let yourself get bubbled by your buddy in the Sabre.
This one is a bit advanced, but delves into the psychology of group combat: You want your Sabre buddy to feel safe. You want to project that feeling of safety that a nearby Falcon maintains onto your gang mates (see #1) by simply staying close to your buddies.
Letting yourself get bubbled tells them: “Hey, I am not gonna leave when shit goes awry, I am gonna sticky here until the very end of my re-cloak timer.”
3. Always use all Jammers on your target.
Just to make sure, perhaps something is
working as intended bugged and your jammers miss a cycle or two, so just activate them all no matter what for maximum jamming awesomeness!
4. If someone is coming for you, stand still – your jams will easily save you!
Falcons are made of awesome, similarly to Rooks and Scorpions, just slightly more awesome, because, come on, what’s more awesome than a Falcon searing through the skies hunting for its prey?
So when someone is burning for you, simply activate the next best jammer on them and watch him fall apart automatically.
5. There’s an evil foe close to your Sabre buddy? JAM IT!
This one is very important and is closely linked to #2: Make your buddies feel safe! This especially true when people haven’t aggressed yet, because when you jam them after they aggress they won’t be able to just reapproach and jump back out, and, let’s be honest – Falcons are all about fair play.
6. Always decloak before your friends have the opponent tackled.
Fair play, not gonna elaborate on this one. If you need explanation, see #5.
