The Flyer  (also known as attack plane) is an enemy unit in Quake 4.There are 2 versions of this vehicle - troop transport (delivers troops) and fighter-bomber/turret-deploying platform.

Its attacks include: missiles, hyperblaster, bombs, as well as deployment of troops (transport version).

It is first seen in the second level, where the primary objective is to destroy their hangar base to enable land support and processing of the land site of the USS Hannibal. They will not attack the player until he/she will be riding or driving a vehicle.  

TacticsEdit

  • A Flyer is easily to deal with, just keep on shooting until it explodes. This is especially easy (and necessary to do) when you have a mounted machine gun in the truck, hovertank, walker and gondola. You can take them down in no time. However, a troop transport is involved, it will be invulnerable, so just focus on the Tactical Strogg inside, its possible to kill the Tactical Stroggs before they have chance to fire back.
  • While fighting against the Network Guardian, some flyers will come to do "strafing run" on the player. Just ignore them and focus on the monster itself. Because it is fast and hard to dodge, it's suggested that you take out the boss quickly to prevent taking too much damage. The Flyer attacks are pretty much hitscan types, and while they don't do too much damage, they will slow you down. Once the Network Guardian is killed, the Flyers will be withdrawn to another hangar never to return again during the rest of the game.
