This is the last special mission I have to complete. I'm prefacing my comment by saying that I did the balloon target shooting mini-event in Grothmar loads of times, hit loads of balloons, and in NZ ping. I even got bronze(!) for Shooting Gallery in VB. So I have some practice at using the action cam and small dot in-game.
But, for the life of me, I can hit almost no propaganda balloons in Drizzlewood. Out of around seven events in which I have participated, since I unlocked that mission, I have hit four balloons. Four. I am aiming for the balloons that are in range.
One player gave me the suggestion of having the target white dot slightly ahead of the balloon I want to hit. This has not worked. I can't even hit one balloon when there are a few of them close together.
What am I doing wrong? Clicking on the balloon doesn't seem to lock on a targeting system, like it does in Grothmar.
Perhaps related, I see "miss" coming up quite a bit when trying to shoot the helos in the shoot the bomber helos activity. So much for locked on, heat-seeking missiles. Could the two problems be related?
Finally, I am getting huge random lag spikes on this map. I've seen other players comment about this, too. However, I have not noticed lag spikes during the balloon shooting.
Any tips ?
