The Jackal can hold up to two players at a time: the pilot and the passenger. While piloting a Jackal, you will have access to the below-mentioned controls:

  1. Accelerator – Press the Accelerator to increase the speed of a Jackal. The longer you press the Accelerator, the faster the jet will get.
  2. Brakes – Pressing Brakes will gradually release the Landing Gear. Hence, ensure that you are slowed down before using Brakes.
  3. Automatic Cannon – This will be your primary weapon while piloting a Jackal. Automatic Cannon shoots explosive rounds capable of eliminating both aerial and land threats.
  4. Flares – Use Flares to diverge any incoming missile attacks.
  5. Missiles  Much like Automatic Cannon, Missiles can be used to destroy enemy land or aerial threats. Although Missiles are more potent than Automatic Cannon attacks, they are limited and have a cooldown so use them wisely.

To find a Jackal in your match, open the map and look for a jet icon. Once you find the icon, head to that location, and you’ll get the jet. However, stay on your toes when in the jet’s vicinity, as other players will likely be there. During your first flights, it’s better to familiarize yourself with different nuances, so do not speed up or engage with enemies until needed. Ultimately, the more you pilot a Jackal, the better your skills will get.
