Attack Helicopter

  • Radar Jammer (passive) - Scrambles enemy radar within a 450m radius of the helicopter.
  • Weapons Jammer (active) - Emit an EMP burst that disables enemy weapons systems for a short amount of time.

Utility Helicopter

  • AoE Damage (passive) - Slowly damages enemies within a 250m radius.

Game ModesEdit

RotorwingsmenuEN

The Menu Screen of Rotorwings.

Strike
Edit

In strike, three sets of three fortifications must be defended by the defending team or destroyed by the attacking team. The fortifications come in the form of radar arrays, barracks structures, fuel depots, airfields, checkpoints, etc. The fortifications take damage from sustained weapons fire. They are armed with anti-aircraft guns that will fire on aircraft that attempt to send munitions their way. The attackers must destroy three fortifications to move on to the next three, and destroy all nine to win. The attackers have limited tickets, so if they lose them all (via deaths), then the defenders win.

ClashEdit

In clash, each team has numerous naval and ground units that are at battle with eachother. Each team's goal is to eliminate the enemy's forces while also defending their own. The first team to lose all their ground and/or naval units loses.

SuperiorityEdit

In superiority, there are seven points on the map for each team to capture. Points can be captured by flying in the immediate vicinity of each point. Points are given to each team periodically based on how many bases they own. The first team to reach the score limit wins.

RetrievalEdit

In retrieval, one team must collect an intel crate that is under the other team's control. The other team's goal is to defend this until the time limit is reached. The crate can only be carried by a utility or heavy helicopter. Once the crate is stolen, the 'attacking' team must fall back towards the extraction point, which is out of bounds. The attackers can shift the boundaries back by killing enemies, and the boundary will slowly move until the extraction point is within bounds. Once the extraction zone is accessible, the attackers must enter this zone to win. During this time, the defenders must try to regain the crate. If the crate is captured by the enemy, the attackers have three minutes to regain the crate or they will lose the round.

VIP DogfightEdit

In HVI, one member of each team is assigned to fly a VIP helicopter; the Alliance receives a Bell 222, and the Coalition receives a Kazan Ansat-V. These VIP helicopters are unarmed, but have extra countermesures and a faster countermeasure reload compared to other helicopters. Each team's goal is to defend their VIP chopper whilst trying to shoot down the other's. Score is kept by number of VIP kills: the first team to reach the score limit, or the team with the highest score at the end of the time limit, wins.

Two-Flag Capture the FlagEdit

Classic CTF, helicopter style. Each team has a 'flag', represented by a radar node attached to a balloon. Both teams must try to steal the other's flag from its position and take it to their home base to capture it. If the flag is dropped, the team to whom the flag belongs can return it to base by 'capturing' it; the flag will also auto-return if left alone for long enough. The enemy's flag cannot be captured if the person's own flag is missing. Score is kept by flag captures; the first team to reach the score limit, or the team with the highest score at the end of the time limit, wins.

One-Flag Capture the FlagEdit

One-flag CTF, helicopter style. A single 'flag' is located at the center of the map. Each team's goal is to grab the flag and take it to the enemy's home base to score. The first team to reach the score limit, or the team with the highest score at the end of the time limit, wins.

Team DogfightEdit

Pure helicopter combat between two teams. Score is kept by the total number of kills by each team; the first team to reach the score limit, or the team with the highest score at the end of the time limit, wins.

DogfightEdit

Pure helicopter combat; every helicopter for itself. Score is kept by the total number of kills by each player; the first player to reach the score limit, or the player with the highest score at the end of the time limit, wins.
