Warzone Parachute Techniques
Let’s start with the basics. At the start of the match, choose your drop point and mark it on the Tac Map. When the flight trajectory nears your destination, it’s time to drop. On the right side of your HUD, an altimeter displays your distance from the ground and the speed that you’re falling.
In the Options menu under the Controller tab, you can ‘enable’ Parachute Auto-Deploy. You can always pull the parachute again after cutting it.
After cutting the cord on your parachute, you can pull out a weapon in free-fall — your starting pistol in Battle Royale or your loadout weapons in Plunder and Blood Money — and fire away at other players.
It’s no easy task to shoot down an enemy Operator while you’re in free fall, but if you can get close enough and lead your shots properly, it’s entirely possible. To best situate yourself for an air attack, you should fly above and behind an enemy smoke trail. It’s best if they’ve pulled their parachute so they’re not moving as fast, but with good timing and precise shooting you can nab them in free-fall as well. Even if they’re free-falling with you, it’s a good idea to stay above them, so that you won’t immediately lose your target if they pull their parachute.
Parachuting within Verdansk
Your parachute isn’t just for dropping into Verdansk but for travelling around it as well. Jump from a high enough location and you can pull your parachute for a safe landing. Parachute off high points to reach distant Contracts or to create space between yourself and an enemy squad.
You can also use your parachute to strike against enemy Operators and squads on the ground.
Tips for Mastering the Parachute
When you’re up high and spot enemies on open ground, consider splitting up and attacking from multiple angles. One player can open fire from up high while the others parachute down and attack from behind while the enemy is distracted.
