How to Glide Faster in Firestorm Battlefield V

At the start of every Firestorm match, players find themselves inside a Junkers Ju 52. The plane starts to fly into the circle and then enables players to drop from the plane into the field. As players choose their locations on the map, they drop down to land on the ground and then quickly enter a building to find weapons.

However, there’s many times when other players land in your area, and get to your spot way before you do. Even though you might think you’ve deployed from the plane faster than anyone else, how is it possible that they landed in your location first? There’s a strategy behind gliding faster in Firestorm. One user submitted a video of how they glide faster in Firestorm below.

Idea behind Gliding Further

Players are given a 5 second delay before they are able to drop. This is enough time for the player to look around the map and choose a location point. Knowing that the Halvoy map in Firestorm changes all the time, players need to be familiar with the best loot spots in Firestorm.

Once a spot is chosen, you’ll want to deploy just before the spot, no directly above it. The Reason for this is that when players deploy, the fly down diagonally, not straight down. Gliding towards your chosen location from a short distance will allow you to reach your spot head first. If you deploy your parachute and then need to maneuver across the map, you’re slowing down and loosing precious time. As shown in the video, the location point if just outside the Dig site. The player deploys and glides looking down for optimal speed.

Hands Do Matter

Notice in the video that the players hands are clenched. When they are clenched, that means you’re gliding down as fast as possible. When the hands are opened (as shown in the video), your player slows down. This is never a good idea unless you’ve realized that other enemies glided to your location spot faster than you. This way you’ll need to adjust your speed and change directions.

While gliding to your location, the same concept in all battle royale games apply. To properly glide faster in Firestorm to your chosen location, you need to glide looking down, and then look forward, repeating this process till you’re in good distance of your target spot.

Another trick in Firestorm is once the parachute deploys, not to lose too much ground or over drop, you’ll want to swing your parachute left and right which allows the player to land evenly on his target destination as demonstrated in the video above. Being able to glide faster in Firestorm properly will be the difference between picking up weapons to fend of enemies, or getting eliminated and going back to the menu screen. The key point in gliding in Firestorm is to deploy from the Junkers JU 52 at the right moment. Once you master that, you’ll be able to glide down using the techniques above.
