The tracer dart works by firing a little homing device at a vehicle, allowing all friendly RPGs and Carl Gustavs to lock on to it. Keep your rocket launcher aimed at the vehicle until the orange square turns solid, and the distance to target appears. Then
fire, and the rocket will track and hit the vehicle. Tracer dart plants can be countered by the vehicle smoke specialization. Both the RPG and the CG can track tracers, but the AT4 can't, since it's manually guided.
apache can be tough......the punishment it can take is ridiculous.....I don't mind that its devastating offensively, but defensibly it needs to be tweaked to reflect a more realistic model....they're not coated with armor I can tell you
tracers are VERY hard to get a hit when a good pilot is flying. also, the tracer seems to shoot out of the right side of the gun when fired, meaning it will be off center a little, and the firing is delayed by about half a second. once you get used to these
things, it can be very effective for taking down anything. its fun getting a lock, then firing the rocket off to the side so it flys wildly before hitting the heli. reminds me of the halo 2 warthog rocket fun videos LOL
