Hello Again

For my millionth question of the day.. I need to know how not to kill myself with the javelin. On cadet it is easy simply lock on and aim a halfway between the sun and the target to get a kill, but in veteran I always miss. I tried the advice in the javelin topic above but it doesnt work, it ends up going to Mars Very Happy! Any lower and I end up getting a massive Tk suicide which occured a few days ago.... Help: I cant use the weapon until I know how to cause I will probably TK again...
BTW I have only Tked once before so Im not doing it on purpose Razz...

Start here. Then go to editor and try in veteran mode there. Just practice its all you can do believe me. Once i used to shoot my self too with the lovely javelin but now its all i use.

If people are using the Jav in a mission it is important that others do not ID targets. Since you dont have the lock marker you have to pay attention to the type and voice that tells you that You have and ID on the target. When you do fire it as you normally would.

Noobish jav firing procedure is this.
Right click (Damn i havnt got a lock)
Right click (Oh bugger Im still not locked)
Right click again (Why isnt this bloody thing locking )
Right click once more (Damn thing must be broke)
Right click yet again (I wonder if its not locking coz its not loaded )
Right click one last time (Shit that tanks getting close, im gonna fire anyway)
Fire........ Damn I Missed.


The reason is this, That lock marker is there. You just cant see it coz ur playing in vet mode.
So with Javs just be very deliberate when firing, right click the target ONCE, aim skyward and fire. Its not foolproof. You could lock up another target by accident or the Jav may fly off towards the sun.

One might wonder if killing the sun is such a good idea

All in all when using the jav its recommended to use extreme caution, one could easily become mass murderer or mass tk'er
i'll bet you never thought this through but ofp can have a huge impact on you, your teammates
and for the love of god, life itself!!!

I advise you to not underestimate the giantnormous consequenses of your actions with the jav,
its a thin line you walk on, and if you cross it you will find out being the hero
of photosyntetic bacteria isnt all that great

Id think we'd freeze 8 minutes later so killing the sun is not such a good idea... Btw I did practice that method and found it works but only for medium to long range targets... otherwise the javelin misses or lands nearby...

Think they need to be at least 75M away for a lock.

I aim javs as if my life depended on just one chance.I aim my scope , i imagine a small dot in the centre of my scope and another dot in the centre of the target .Then at this moment i release the safety switch aka right mouse click and then i fire!
