|- Eliminates missile locks|
Flares (also referred to as Chaff) are a Hawk weapon used to eliminate all missile locks at the time of firing. Flares are mapped to R3.
Flares exit the rear of the Hawk as tiny blue-grey swirling explosions.
Flares confuse missile tracking systems, which allows the user to scrub all current missile locks with ease. However, there is a significant recharge time for the flares, which puts one at a disadvantage if Flares are used prematurely.
- Only use Flares if you have numerous missiles tracking you. Using them on one or two missiles is a waste.
- Flares "replace" the PRCM/D Chaff Dispenser from Warhawk. However, the PRCM/D was mapped to the weapons cross, unlike the Flares in Starhawk.
