Help ! I Just can't play the ski speeder

Hi everyone, I could use your help.

I'm currently trying to up my ranks with the speeders and the armored vehicles, that I did not played a lot so far.
With a little training I have no issues playing the armored of all kinds. It's not very complicated I confess. With more pratice I understand now how to play most of the speeders (landspeeder on tatooine, snowspeeder on Hoth, LIUV on starkiller). it's a little more complicated to me playing efficiently the speeder bike on Endor because of the collisions and the poor manoeuvrability but OK...

But the ski speeder on Crait ! OMG !

I think it's totally unplayable. I agree I probably do something wrong but I can't understand what...

The maneouvrability is awfull, the speed does not help and your cursor move so much I can't target anything more than half a second. To be honest if i stabilize my speeder I can target something a little longer but that's mean instant death from the multitude of enemys shooting at me. Consider the TIE fighters tracking the poor little speeders and the random "collisions" on flat land, you have a very frustrating picture of this gameplay.

I tried to change my mouse settings (playing on PC) but I did not sense any improvement

How do you play efficiently that vehicle ? what do you target ? infantry ? AT-ST ? the objectives ?

Thanks for your help.

    It’s best to target the trenches as there’s usually players grouped up their. But they’re honestly just not worth using, one Specialist or AT-ST can ruin your day.

    Tbh, they are the best speeders in the game. On the best map for them.

    Hardly. Any other speeder is way easier to control.

    Once you learn how to control them and use the correct star cards, they wreck at-sts and the at-m6s with the middle ability. Just fire from a distance and you'll get bunches of points.

    Not as much as you used to though.

    I have a more difficult time on Endor than Crait. Pretty much can survive the entire phase 1 in speeder, unless I really become a nuisance where a fighter chases me, ion turrets facing backwards, and AtSt are just tryhards

    Red Sand cover is a great 'shield' to both you and allies, aim down more (constantly), save abilities for ion'd tanks or atst, slow down a lot, go for turrets they are easier to hit, sorta predict wave points where the team will go to, give cover to charging ion cannon icon locations with smoke screen, people are after you make circles for smoke screen protection, back-off if aiming atst just be a nuisance so they will turn their backs to team, don't try so hard to ram people..

    Right now; officer presence and heavy defender cards works within speeders so you can gain more points there.

    Run over people. As for your cursor, I have a logitech gaming mouse that has 5 cursor speeds that are swapped between with an up and down button. I always switch to the lowest. I also do this for siege mode with the AAT. Please note that LIUV and Tatooine speeders, along with Endor scout speeders will level up the entire speeder class. So will snow-speeders, so the Ski-speeder is unnecessary. I agree, it is a bad vehicle. But they were in the movies, soo...

  • Im adding my #metoo here. The cursor moves way too fast to even aim or fly in a straight line. I already set the sensitivity down to 5% which makes it painful to control other speeders because they now barely turn.

    Ive seen what people can do with a speeder but right now its not possible for me to do it due to the insane uncontrolable sensitivity.
  • If I’m in a speeder I can get 20K points in the first phase. I’ve only recently been having trouble with he Ion torpedo rocket, but otherwise survivability isn’t too difficult. I use Xbox.
    "My warning to you is this—do not rely on your companions to compensate for your weaknesses in skill. There will be times they will not be there to help you when needed."
  • To any pc ganers: use a gaming mouse with adjustable sensitivity. I go to the lowest setting for the ski speeder, but the other speeders are unaffected...

  • I decided to give it a try, but was exploding by myself for unknown reasons... maybe I hit an invisible rock. But it’s very unplayable.
