VTOL VR is a very unique VR-supported game that still receives bugs and feature updates. It’s a VR game, so you are free to pick your favorite VR headsets while not being limited to a single piece of hardware forever. Well, the latest Patch update 1.7.3 was released in September 2023, along with many bugs and quality improvements. Anyway, since this is a VR game that offers a competitive PvP experience involving air fights, knowing how to dodge or evade missiles is a necessary skill you must master. So, in this article, we have shared all the details regarding how to dodge or evade missiles in VTOL VR.
Missiles are one of the most crucial parts of your arsenal. For example, GPS-guided missiles/bombs can be used to destroy multiple targets from a safe distance. But what if some enemy fires such a weapon towards you? Yes, it’s a real nightmare, and that’s why learning how to dodge them is a must.
Vtol VR: How to dodge or evade missiles?
This comes in handy when you are locked on by heat-seeking or IR missiles. These specific kinds of missiles use the temperature signature of your aircraft to guide themselves. So the easiest way to avoid this is by putting a cover in between you and the missile. Let’s say the terrain. If you put a mountain in between you and your missile’s LOS (Line of Sight), then the target lock will disengage and the missile will crash itself onto either the mountain or the surface.
High G Pulls
G means gravity, and this technique is quite useful in dodging missiles. The fundamental trick is that you thrust upwards right before the missile hits your aircraft. This is a challenging trick since if you thrust too early, then the missile will adjust its route and hit you. If you thrust too late, well, then it’s game over. However, this maneuver is quite easy to learn. Just follow the given steps:
- Keep the missile’s position to either your left or right. This will make dodging it a bit easier.
- Then, when it’s around 3 seconds apart from your aircraft, start the thrust and begin ascending. Make sure to wait until the missile is close enough, and then take a sharp turn (or a barrel roll). If done right, the missile will not be able to hit your aircraft.
This is one of the most difficult techniques to evade missiles, but also the most rewarding one. That’s why it’s best to get the hang of it as soon as possible.
IR missiles are one of the most common missiles that you will face while fighting. The best way to avoid them is by combining flares with high G pulls. The technique is the same: thrust and turn right when the missile is about to hit you. But in this case, you will spam Flares. These flares work as a decoy that most IR missiles will try hitting. You can also try using moves like barrel rolls, for example, which maximize the effectiveness of this technique even further.
Well, this was our complete guide on how to evade or dodge missiles in VTOL VR. There are also other techniques, like beaming, that use the power of geometry to burn the fuel of a missile, and it dies before reaching you. But the provided methods are the most common ones that are quite useful in battles. Follow Android Gram for more exciting guides like this. Also read: How to install Vtol VR mods?
