FA-119 Reaper - WOW

FA-119 Reaper - FASTEST and MOST AGILE PLANE EVER RELEASED

What else to say but WOW - this plane looks like something special.  Plane of the week is a re-skinned Wraith (why a 1960's style F-4 Phantom frame Z2?  cmon - crank out a hot new airframe already!), but anyway - don't let the old, low level weapons class frame fool you- this thing is agility class extrordinaire.   Here is a breakdown of the stats:

Damage:  Best in class damage - greater than the Mako or Spectre.  Still half as much damage as a good weapons class plane, but for agility class, it doesn't get any better.

Agility:  Can you say BEST IN FLEET?  3% greater agility than a Thresher and 1% greater than the discontinued Spectre.  Not only best in fleet, but looks like the MOST AGILE PLANE THAT Z2 HAS EVER RELEASED.  WOW!  Get ready for sharp banks and quick turns - should be an outstanding dogfighter.

Speed:  As if agility wasn't enough, this plane is also BEST IN FLEET for speed!  3% faster than the Thresher and 1% faster than the discontinued Spectre.  This sucker is SMOKING FAST!  Like agility, this looks like the FASTEST PLANE THAT Z2 HAS EVER RELEASED.

Armor:  As if all the above wasn't enough, this sucker has +5% armor.  This is the only agility class plane in the fleet with armor.

Compared to a Thresher, the only down side of the Reaper is that it does not have the evasion or the energy that the Thresher has.  But the extra armor should help compensate for that.

See PLANE COMPARISON TABLES for detailed assessment of all the planes performance ratings including the Reaper which has been added!

What else can I say?  If you are willing to pay the 205 coins, you will have what  could be the best agility class dog fighter out there. Looking forward to hearing from any readers who buy this speedster - let us know your experience!

  2. got it all maxed , this plane rocks ( altough , i still have to get used to it) ,it has the greatest missile accuracy of all agility class went to wave 16 alone with it


    the 15 % agility is great , but don't make yourself illusion , weapons Planes with bisnos or meteor will Smoke it ......... especially after the recent Auto match update.

    what this plane lacks is certainly a pinch of extra energy .

  3. Be aware of more surprises... They're gonna publish planes with astronomical stats in the next few weeks continuously.... the next one should have +17% damage and +16% range.... weapon class... they're out of their minds....

      Agreed, that FA-230 Sentinel is insane! I might just buy a F-119 to guarantee a tie by simply flying away (see my post below) over those who bought it or buying it regarless their SR. :) Other accidentally leaked planes are pretty blah though.

      Z2live should have a point penalty system for flying those planes or hanging R40 and such, like in the game Go the black moves first but suffers territory penalty...

    2. In the first hour after the release of version 4.0.5 on last friday, Z2live accidentally screwed themselves and released all the above planes in 1 go... Those who bought it already can still use it, while others will have to wait for their publishing date, which is within the next 8 weeks.

    Yesterday I encountered a couple of those new planes with SRs about mine 13k. Easy kills with my Red Widow and cheapie Phonix missile.

    This morning I bumped into this smart Chinese dude with just 5k andsimilar amount of games played as mine who figuring out how to take the advantage of the rocket speed. He simply ran away from my slow Red Widow while shaking his ass like crazy and my cheap missile could catch up with him! 2 rounds 5 minutes later, he scored easy +50 and I got +10 while chasing him all the way. LOL!

    Besides hanging R40, any tips to chase down those fast runaways? Thanks!

  6. It's already bad enough that Z2Live made an AA-6 the name of the best missile in the game. I'm all for superplanes but to make it a 1950s-design F-4??? Better than a the F-22/F-35 clones in the game?

    I love MSW but I'd like a bit of reality here.

    1. What Z2 should do next is bring back the Wright-flyer and make it the # 1 plane.

      Delete
  7. I love how Z2 is making planes with outlandish stats just to make other people spend money on the game (Bisnos, new planes, etc.) The truth is most people actually use cheat codes to get them for free. If Z2 doesn't do anything about it they risk losing honest players while losing money to cheaters at the same time.

  8. Well.... out of my 3 top tier planes I have. I think only the Red Widow will survive now... It's a shame to see the Thresher get outclassed even more now. :(

    1. Thumbs up if u think the red widow is better than the hawken ��

    2. Thresher, outclased??? Don't kid yourself. It is still a top notch plane. Despite everybody being awestruck by the new planes coming out, the "old" planes more than hold their own. I like the stats of the Reaper, who doesn't. But, what it makes it so much better than the Thresher??

      The small percentage advantage in Speed and Agility does not mean that this plane is a game-changer. The performance variance is small when you look at the Plane Comparison Chart from ths sweet ass Blog (mad props). And in actual flight, it would be almost unnoticeable in these categories in a dogfight.

      The Reaper gets extra Damage, but the Thresher's Evasion bonus more than makes up for that.

      I will call the Armor bonus for the Reaper and the Evasion bonus for the Thresher a draw.

      I know I will get 10 people saying I'm wrong. But, I'm not.

    3. Evasion Bonus will be nullified with Any Lock Speed ability of say Sentinel.. Thresher has Low Cannon damage but Higher Cannon Cool Down.. which means You can spank more Cannons at Weapon class....Tommorow who knows Z2 will throw in a Cannon resist feature on Weapon class too !!! its a Changing world all the time.. sometimes Z2's Own dummy pilots come in ordinary Anihilators to Beat your upgraded planes with Gizmos.. just to create a Facade that there exists a Sperlative thing called SKILL in 5 digits.. etc a MIRAGE..

    3. Outta curiousity, why do you guys think the Dragon is better than the Green Eagle?

      I fly a Dragon normally, and my best result against Green Eagles is a draw. In fact, I think I've only ever scored one kill against them. The Dragon is tough, but the Green Eagle is virtually indestructible unless u're using weapons class with meteors or bisnos.

  12. Hi, I play metalstorm and I got the Reaper!!! Fully Upgraded. It's one of the best planes, in my opinion. On average it can reach speeds up to 4000 or more! I love it's agile flexibilities. The downside is that I think Z2 Live charges too much for it. Payed $30 for it. But overall, very good!!!!

    1. Great plane but you need to know how to master and control the beast... Not for beginners for sure. For me the ultimate plane when you know your stuff (dodging coins missiles, dogfighting,...). Don't waste your money and credits if your SR is below 10K :)

    1. I've beat plenty of threshers, but they all seemed to be piloted by less-skilled individuals than I expected in an Agility-class plane. I bet one will come along and beat me someday, I'm definitely not the best pilot out there.

      Delete
  20. Ok, I'm a noob. But how do you use speed (except for initial closure)? I've only done a small number of fights but it seems to me that disengaging and flipping (bull run) is a very limited approach and that most fights end up being tight turns.

    I have a weapons Eagle from when I first started this game a long time ago and really feel the need to add some other arrows to my quiver but can't figure out which direction to go (except I'd love a dragon or green eagle for survival mode ... still have 20+ lvls in my Eagle but had a good partner for those :-)

    1. Cuda - Agree, most fights are circling matches - speed helps you get to the circling match quicker and avoid getting bombarded with coin missiles. Speed may also help you catch up behind your opponent while circling - agility allows the tighter turns but speed helps you get there quicker I believe.

  21. Most of the offers from tapjoy only give you 1 or 2 coins. I got about 80 coins from the offers that gave me 3 or more coins each (I got a raider with that).

  22. Actually, the Reaper is modelled after a later more advanced version of the Phantom, the F4-g Wild Weasel, which is shorter in length and has a wider wingspan.

  29. Hey Agility Pilots. I own the FA-119 Reaper since March and I wasn't really satisfied about this plane but I recently taken it up again. I spent only 42 coins on it because of its low armor but than I saw some agi fighters turning this lil badass like an invincible killer and I started wondering: Will my Reaper be so weak because it is not fully upgraded ( Everyone I heard have fully upgraded agi planes)? How much will increrase the "probability" of dodging a missiles when fully upgraded (e.g. 3x)?
    I have 9,1k SR and I think I already mastered weapon class (with my RW) and defense class ( with my Dragon and my Achilles), so I wanna get better with agi too.

    1. low armor explains why it took four RAAM's, and a few cannon hits with my F-7 wraith.

  30. I own a fully upgraded Reaper, and it is by far the best plane I have ever flown. I can take on virtually any other plane with it, even with standard-issue weapons, and it is so fun to fly that I sometimes start single-player survival, ignore the lone enemy in the first wave, and just cruise over the mountains for a while.
    The most important upgrades are the ones that increase agility, speed, and evasion. Once you have all of these, the rest of the upgrades are just extra fluff. With evasion, speed and agility maxed out, you can evade any missile (other than a Lancer or Bisno) simply by going to full speed and turning hard to the left. This trick works on bisnos and lancers sometimes, but not always. It is true that it has the armor of a bee hummingbird, but if you get good at evasion, people will recognise your skills. I have recieved numerous friend requests from my vs mode opponents, even the ones that I defeated. (I never recieved requests when flying an Arbiter or Eagle-X). If you like agility and are willing to spend some time practicing, there is no better option than this aircraft in my opinion.

    1. Thank you for your reply, man. I fully upgraded my Reaper (except energy regen) and it is really awesome. It's very easy to avoid missiles with this aircraft and all those ugrades but almost all of my matches lag a lot (although my connection is very good, maybe it is my geographical position) so often even standard issue is 4 times quicker than bisnos: I can't even see "incoming" that the missile already hit me in a max range engadgement. My main problem is damage now: I often hit weapon class planes all the match but I can't blow 'em up... Let's don't talk about defense class...

      Delete
    2. I'm pretty sure the lag is Z2's fault, I get the same thing. As for that energy regen upgrade, I know it seems to be hardly worth it for 10 coins per level, but it increases how long you can stay at full speed reasonably well. I think it's worth it, but you can decide for yourself. I agree about damage too, the Reaper has more damage than most agility planes, but it's still far cry from a weapons class. I rarely get more than two kills on my opponent during the match, but my opponent almost never kills me unless they have bisnos or lancers, and even then they usually only kill me once. Getting into a circling match is key, once you get there only a thresher or another reaper (or maybe a mako, I haven't played those much) can stand a chance of killing you. If you run at your opponent though, only a couple of coin missiles can take you down. Using this plane definitely isn't easy compared to a weapons or defense class.

    3. In survival, I kill so quick with the reaper it lags(raams and voodoo)

  31. Since the new update, I've had terrible luck dodging Meteors, but I haven't had any problem dodging Vympels. Maybe they added some secret tracking bonus to the Meteor when it faces Agility planes/Reapers.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Nevermind, none of the evasion tactics in the reaper seem to work. At all. If I dodge a missile, it's always by accident now. I've had sidewinders hit me while I'm moving at full speed perpendicular to them and doing a barrel roll. This is NOT OKAY.

  33. I'm trying to decide between this plane, the RW, or the paladin, which was recently released as a permanent plane in the game. Anyone got any suggestions or input before I slaughter my 233 blue coins?

  37. I got a Reaper a few days ago and thus far it's been quite disappointing.
    I have fully upgraded the plane, the armor is very weak,circling I find it to be also weak, I just had a match against an annihilator and it out circled me easily, in fact I had green Eagle out maneuver mine, a lot of planes can out moneuver me.
    I don't know if there is somerhing wrong with mine,I'm actually quite upset after dropping all the coins at it.
    Does anyone else have this happen to them.

    ReplyDelete
  38. play this with bisnos. against a weapons class plane, play tight, lull loop, speed out a few seconds then reverse roll back... with this planes speed, you'll catch the other guy still looping.. unload then play the loop game again. you wont score 4 or more kills per game with this plane but you can definitely pitch a shut out. you can frustrate a weapon class fighter with this plane once you get comfortable with it.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Must be skillful to handle this damn fast beast! I take 3 sessions of 18 waves single survival only for mastering the speed and circling. Fast but has short fangs against other planeclasses, however i manageto takedown green turtlle 1-0,with tons of missiles and gunshots...
