Tips on Avoiding BISNOS
Probably one of the single most difficult things to do in MSWM is avoiding an onslaught of Bisnovat R-40 missiles fired at you from long range. Want to dedicate this posting to see who out there has the best tips to avoid getting killed by Bisnos. I don't have a magic answer (hoping that maybe someone out there does!)
Below are my tips:
1. You want to get close to you opponent FAST so you can engage in a circling match - you will do much better at close range against Bisnos than long range.
2. Go full throttle to get closer to the player - I usually try flying not directly at them however but slightly off-angle, say 30 degrees from directly at them. It seems that if you fly directly at them, the missile will track you all that much better.
3. At the last second, I usually try a hard upwards or downwards maneuver or swipe/roll left/right to avoid getting hit.
4. I've sometimes tried long sweeping or sporadic turns as the missile approaches, but it seems that those don't help that much.
Also - what about cutting against the grain of the missile flight?? What I mean is if the missile is curving towards you, make your roll the opposite direction? I've added the following diagrams to try and describe this - curious as to your thoughts on this approach:
If anyone has any tips, please post. I will also post a poll on the right of the page on banning Bisnos - please vote!
