Not much we can really tell you. Practice deflection shooting...its a talent and an art. You get better with experience.

With the 262, you have to look for the unsuspecting fighter and jockey for a good position. Don't dogfight...always zoom away and attack again.

Speed is everything.Be patient and keep your speed up while looking for a lower and slower enemy. Since closing speeds are usualy faster in the 262 I set my convergences further out(300m).
The other big thing is engine care. Save them for when you need them.Also black smoke trails are easy to see.

Yeah, i figured i just needed to hit and run, but i suck at deflection shooting so i always usually end up in a dogfight. The engines can be a ***** sometimes too. Oh well, more practice and hopefully ill improve.

One key thing to remember is that the Mk108s are pretty much point blank, high deflection weapons. With a little practice you can hit a turning Yak-3 while going 800kmh. All it takes is one or two hits and your target is likely to start having a bad day.

hit and run is a good choice for Me-262, but Me-262 was design for shooting a bomb plane not fighter, that make you job is not easy

the basic secreat for hit and run is you have to select the target that not aware ness in danger , drive from the sun at 7000 meter to build speed over then 600 km/h use zoom view and open fire at 200 meter ( I open fire at 100 meter but can not pull out from ram http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif )

but if you play on df server , a smock from two jets engine will locate your position from a long distance if you use a max power , and if your target was alert in danger that is not easy for shoot him , but if you are good in deflection shooting that is a fun. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

mostly p-51, p-47 or spitfire friends will not happy if they meet a good pilots in Me-262

Oh.. you have use engine soft and gently like a lady.

check out around here you may found a good source of deflection shooting.

Never DF in a 262.

Just be patient; fly around for a while at alt and pounce on someone who clearly isn't aware of what is going on above them. This way, you won't hardly even need to learn to deflection shoot.

Is this online or offline?? Offline, dealing with enemies is easier. Stay fast and when you have to turn around, go out a ways and turn at high speed, then make another pass. Try not to get slow when behind an ememy, make a few shots, if you miss, blow past and go out to turn around again. Sometimes if you fly straight and get up to high speed with enemies way back on your tail, you can pull straight up and when you get up high, do a hammerhead and blow away the fighters struggling to climb with you. They have lost their energy and are easy to pick off as you dive down on them. But make sure you are at least 1Km in front of them if not farther when you do this. LA-5/7s are hard to do this against too.
