Your first order of business is to find a Jackal to pilot. Open your map when deploying in Battle Royale’s Isolated to view their position around the map, indicated by the new jet icon.
Each Jackal is parked on a landing strip. Set a waypoint near one and deploy toward its location, watching for enemy Operators doing the same. There are only a few jets available in each match, so don’t be surprised if you’ve got to fight for it.
The Jackal holds two Operators: the pilot and the passenger. First, the pilot’s controls:
Automatic Cannon: This is the Jackal’s bread and butter, firing explosive rounds capable of taking out enemy aerial and ground threats alike.
Missiles: Fire missiles at enemy aircraft and vehicles. While piloting the Jackal, your HUD will mark other aircraft and vehicles. Missiles are limited and require a brief cooldown, so use them wisely.
Flares: For those hair-raising dogfights. As with missiles, each Jackal holds a limited number of flares, with a cooldown between uses. Use them to shake off enemy missile attacks.
Accelerator: Press the accelerator to your desired speed. The longer you press, the faster you’ll go. It’s possible to maintain a slower flying speed, but don’t forget to hit the gas again before going into a free fall.
Brakes/Landing Gear: Slow your speed, especially when passing over high-priority targets. Hold the brakes to release your landing gear for a safe landing.
As for the passenger? Let’s hope you’ve got a good pilot. In the worst case, there’s always the parachute.
