So to catch fire crackers you just try to run fast enough into them?
@ EZ - Not sure if your joking or not but just in case "NO" you can't catch the fire cracker/bombs
Coyotehuntr was having you on
Best way to die quickly is to run into the damn things lol
People are starting to make me mad with the quad. One thing is hovering behind you while you are choosing your plane and pelleting you, another is hovering over pencils in training level and just rotating to aim, one that I don't like but is reasonable is taking all the health when your health is full. I can put up a fight with a biplane though. I wish the quad had a better weakness than just hard to learn to control. However nothing can do but deal with it so oh well.
The hovering behind and shooting is bad form but in a previous update it changed so when picking your plane if someone shoots at you, you don't get any damage. But you only have 15 seconds to choose your plane and then it auto launches.
There is a large thread all about the Quadro you should have a look. Brian the developer has listened to all the comments from this forum and is going to make the Quadro not as strong in the next update as it's too hard to beat.
To stop a Quadro hovering in one place what I do is load up on the bombs and drop it right on top of them and all around the area they hover in
They move away very quickly
Same for the health coins. If you keep missing them or to stop the other players coming back to grab them drop a heap of bombs over the area and then the other planes can't go near it while the bombs are slowly floating down ready to rain death on anyone who goes close
Hope this helps you a bit. I'm no expert and everyone has different strategies but the more you play and try different things out the better you will become
See you out there
