The Javelin can be employed against helicopters.

And I can fly, I can even shoot things and get kills but getting shot at is still quite hard for me

Edit: I'm having real hard time spotting targets, any tips? Also should I fly a heli low or high?
That’s the standard response when you crash. You just have to ignore it. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen people on this forum express the sentiment ‘If you can’t fly, don’t get in the heli’ which, if you think about it, is ludicrous.

You can always try and find a server with no-one on it. I don’t think you can have a server to yourself, because of the minimum player requirements tho. What tends to happen is you get in a heli but don’t actually learn to fly well because you are constantly getting pwnt by someone with much more flying experience.

There is definitely a tranche of players who feel that they are the only ones allowed to fly and any new pilot who has the temerity to give it a go and messes up deserves to be subjected to abuse.

Such as it was in BF2 and BC2.

That said, choose your moments. If there is a pilot owning it up for your team, you won’t win any friends by spawning, getting into the chopper and repeatedly herping it into the nearest structure while an awesome pilot twiddles his thumbs on the ground.

Then again, there a lot of pilots out there who have a waaaaaaay overinflated sense of their own skill.

In short: Modern Warfare 3 sucks.

Guys how do shoot/fire from the heli, every heli work but there is one named havoc in the canals map which doesn't shoot from the default buttons space/LMB.

I have just unlocked heat seekers on the jets but when I lock down a jet then when I shoot a missile then its useless as that jet uses flares

Snakes [OfC] server is set to one person to play, they run maps with heli's and stuff for that reason. They run alot of TDM and SDM too though, which isn't a big deal to me but some people don't like those modes.

Edit: so if you can get in while no one is on yet practice your butt off till someone comes in if Spinaltap comes in tell him BadMonkey sent you lol

That's cool, I wasn't sure if minimum player numbers were an issue across the board, though they have been on some of the 'training' servers I've seen.

It's the most hilarious thing taking down helicopters with heat seekers
