Rescue Under Fire Instructions

Just like other helicopter games, Rescue Under Fire comes with an 'easy to understand' control scheme: (1) Press the R button to get your chopper's engine started and press it again to shut down the engine. BUT, concerning the latter, do that ONLY when you are at the main base to switch helicopters. (2) For the throttle, press 1 to increase it and hit 2 to tone it down. (3) As for the helicopter's basic movement, it is controlled with the usual W, A, S, and D buttons. As for taking out enemy units, you need to use your mouse: move it to aim and hit the left click button to unleash the wrath of your cannon or missiles. To toggle between cannon and missile (this is for the apache only by the way), just press the space bar button. That's about it for the controls. Now, let's get down to the REAL deal - how to play this helicopter game!

Rescue Under Fire Walkthrough

Alright soldier! In this helicopter game, Rescue Under Fire, your PRIMARY mission is to find casualties and bring them back safely to the main base hence the name. Use your radar. Check it out and if you see a green dot, check it out. It's HIGHLY probable that it's a casualty and they have brought an emergency beacon. If that sounds too easy, think again. Enemy units will be just around the corner and they are always ready for action. You have to eliminate these hostile units first and land near the casualties. They will automatically board the helicopter and, as briefed, you MUST bring them back to base.

You have different helicopters at your disposal in this helicopter game. That said, you must choose wisely as these choppers specialize in certain tasks. The Apache, while unable to transport passengers, has heavy duty artillery and firepower... and it will make short work of enemy units. On the other hand, there's the Chinook. It has the LARGEST transport capacity BUT it's almost useless in combat. If you want to play on the safe side, you can use the Black Hawk. It has decent stats both in the transport capacity and firepower department.

Delving deeper into the fighting and transport capabilities of these choppers you can use, you should be aware that they also have different characteristics aside from the ones outlined above. Before choosing one, you should take a look at their stats - their speed, travel range, fuel capacity, transport capacity, armor and weapons, cannon shot range, damage, and those are just to name a few. More importantly, for the Apache and Black Hawk, you should pay attention to the gunner's orientation. For Black Hawk, the gunner's orientation allows you to fire from the side, while the Apache, on the other hand, can only fire to the front.

Before you charge into the war zone, here are some tips and tricks that will surely help you make it back to the base in one piece: (1) You can only land in certain areas and these are marked by a white rectangle. (2) Your helicopter will sustain damage - that's a given. The extent of the damage - that's I'm not sure. What I'm sure of though is that you need to get it repaired and keep it in tip top shape at the main base or secondary bases. (3) Another thing you need to keep an eye on is your fuel levels. If you run out of fuel while flying, you will crash. You have to refill your tank at the main base or any friendly helibase, which are marked with an H. (4) Missiles - you need them for destroying tanks. If you run out of them, rearm at the main base. (5) As for the casualties, land only at the main base to get them to safety. That's all the briefing you need for this helicopter game. Now go rescue some casualties!
