An eye on the horizon

Knowing where your enemies are coming from is a key tactic, of course, and as such rushing in at the start of a battle isn’t the best idea.

Instead, go slow, half speed, and slowly crawl behind your allies while picking off any enemies that stray too far from the pack. Sticking together and focusing fire will help you clear out enemies and survive for longer.

The long game

Once you see an enemy on the horizon it’s time to fight, but battle from a distance can be a struggle. Your bullets will drop over time, and speedy ships can out move your fire. Take note of the speeds, and aim where their ship will be, instead of where they are.

Being at a distance yourself should hopefully make it easier to avoid incoming enemy fire.

Take aim

The cannons on your ship are directional, meaning you won’t be able to do as much damage aiming your bow (the front) at an enemy as you would with your side to them.

To do the most damage, have the side of your ship facing the enemy and fire off both your main and secondary guns, alternating between the two often, whenever enemies are in range. Secondary guns don’t have as much range, so keep that in mind.

All of the targets on your screen are a gun, when it’s black it can’t aim in that direction, orange is reloading, and a more pale yellow colour means you’re ready to fire. Double tap to fire all artillery and do as much damage as possible.

Duck for cover

Use the environment to your advantage. Islands and rock formations can provide good cover from enemy fire, and are best used when in a pinch.

If you want to play the long game for as long as possible, saddle up near a rock and emerge and reverse back near it as necessary to fire on enemies and avoid fire yourself.

Evasive manoeuvres

Your ship can move backwards, but it’s not exactly a sprightly pace. Moving forwards is best for evasion, and depending on where an enemy is firing from, might be the best way to avoid fire. As we’ve discussed, distance and bullet drop make shooting difficult from afar.

Try to never let yourself have enemies on both sides of you, and manoeuvre in the water so you always are aware of where enemies are. Of course, the map helps with this too.
