So, in my opinion the F84f does best when focusing mainly on flipping caps by downing ADA and hitting ground targets. Don't save the rockets, use them for ground targets. With the full load out of rockets and Tims you should be able to pop 3-4 medium targets or a big target and one or two medium targets. The basic idea is to fly into a cap, pop one or two ADAs, then quickly finish the cap off by unleashing the Tims and rockets.

 

The trick to make the guns work better is to only shoot what you know you can kill. Only pick on the wounded or light fighters. Otherwise you're better off spending your time getting to a cap you can flip easily while the ordnance reloads.

 

In my mind, gold ammo isn't worth paying gold, however, I seem to win it often enough. So if you've got it, use it. If you don't, use universal unless you're hurting for credits.

 

Stick to your strengths, the F84f can't win every matchup, but it can always fly to where the enemy isn't and cap like crazy. I won a match a while ago against a Goblin I could do nothing against by staying away from him and capping as fast as possible.

You can cap a Mining plant after you specialize it. 

ALL BY YOURSELF
