Ace Combat 2 Tips
Back to top
In mission 19 - Kingpin,you will see a plane marked out as "DANGER!" in the briefing screen.In the mission,you will meet the ultimate Legend Pilot:the ZOE Commander.In the combat against him,ZOE will eventually pull out the ADF-01 FALKEN's infamous Cobra maneuver:when you're too close to ZOE,he'll stall and stop in the air with the nose up,causing you to overshoot your nemesis.However,there's a way of tricking out ZOE so you can use the Cobra maneuver to your advantage.This is what you do:hit the afterburner and keep close to ZOE,then when you see him raise the nose,slow down and FAST - you only have half second to hit the air brake,so be quick.Now that you're close enough,OPEN FIRE! If done correctly,you can hit ZOE whilst he's up the Cobra.Try this 1 or 2 more times and eventually he'll die to you,all because of a weapon that's deadlier than a smart bomb:it's called a smart pilot.
