View Full Version : Gun Convergence

How many have their convergence set at 300m +?

I used to have 250m as the distance for the longest time and started to notice that most times when shooting, I was within 200 to 150m away from the target. I dropped the convergence and noticed much heavier damage to my targets.

It's surprising that the distance the targets are away from you are closer than you really think http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Take a look next time. See what the distance is when you pull the trigger ....

Depends on airplane. 190D for example I set it out to 500m for the cannons. 190A everything on 300m.

For .50 armed planes I use 200 meters or even less.

Depends on where I'm flying.

Offline is about 200m. Perhaps less.

Online is 250-300. I don't usually get as close.

Since I usually take the "sniper" loadout, I set mine to 1,000m

From 100 to 250 depending on plane, weapon and mission. Usually 150 for wing mounted installations in the air to air role.

When you come up behind a fighter off-line it will start to "jink" at 300 meter's. Faster is better, you can (sort of) sneak up on them if you are flying fast enough (they will start to evade your shots at 200 meters)... so off line I tend to set my guns between 200 & 300 meters (sometimes). http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

125m... more, and bigger pieces tend to fall off. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Gives one an effective range of ~250m

I generally keep them set to 300. Lets me take pot shots with MGs out to about 500 or so. I've been thinking of taking them down though, since I tend to get in WAY close in TnB...I might do 300 for BnZ, and lower it to 200 for TnB from now on.
