View Full Version : How do you conduct a radar-only attack?

In Sonar- & radar-only attacks (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/857101043/m/3381048843) I described my first use (successful) of sonar to conduct an attack on an "invisible" target in bad weather. In this account I mentioned that I tried to do a radar-only attack but couldn't get the radar to work properly.

Since no one responded to the implied question, I'll ask it directly: "Is there a way to make a radar-only attack?" The switch to "focus" on the radar allows the player to control the radar direction but when pointed directly at the target nothing happens. The expectation would be that the oscilloscope would show a signal and the range meter would indicate the target's range. This doesn't happen. What's the secret? How does it work? Is radar "broken" in SH3?

Given that I've received no answer I have to assume that to do a radar-only attack requires that map update be on. Then it is possible to use the drawing tools to come up with a solution. Without map update, you can't do radar-only attacks.
