    Default What is the best ship to Barrel Roll with?

    Yeah,I know,stupid question...But it's just that some ships seem to take longer to barrel roll,I can do some great barrel rolls with Piranha,for example,but it's a bit harder with Mirage.Do ships also have a "secret" stat named Weight? can be,since if it is so,the ship will take longer to barrel roll,and also get lower air from jumps.

    Anybody confirms this?

    EG-X HD is by far the best BR-ship, in my opinion (directly followed by PIRANHA HD). the hardest BR-combo in the whole game (3x/4xBR beat zico;bridge section) is almost 'easy' with EG-X
    AURICOM HD takes 3rd place in my list, and GOTEKI 45 HD is great too. it seems to me, that it was made just for sebenco
    sub 27 venom time is 100% doable, not sure about the other ships

    I also thought the same thing,EG-X first then Piranha.But,IMO,the 3rd ship to barrel roll is the harimau HD.Fourth is Assegai

    I'd say it depends on playing style and personal preference personally I find ag-sys fury and goteki 45 HD to be the easiest to BR with, with Furymau and assegai HD on a shared 3rd place, not that theres a big gap down to the 4:th and 5:th. the one thing that I seem to see as a bit of a pattern is that many people seem to think the EG-X fury is the hardest ship to br with.

    generally speaking though I think it's mostly about learning how to handle whatever ship you choose to play with.

    The shielding stat and body shape sort of imply the ship's weight. This also determines why ships with similar body shapes handle differently (Auricom/Qirex/Goteki, or Triaksis/Assegai/Icaras+). Without testing, I'll agree some ships seem to finish rolling sooner than others, but I'd argue this is a simple matter of circumference. Notice Icaras+ has a longer wingspan than Harimau+, which would imply it takes longer for Icaras+ to roll. As far as timing the speeds of different ships' rolls, one needs to test them each on the same speed. I imagine the same ship going at full speed on Phantom would seem to roll faster than the same ship going at full speed on Venom (since full speed Venom would be significantly slower).

    As for activating rolls, it's an identical movement for all ships. Be aware that the ship must be completely airborne (as in off the track) in order to activate the roll. A lot of times I miss rolls going off ramps because the tail end of my ship is still "attached" to the track. Your ship must be off the track before you start the left-right-left input. I'm not implying you're having trouble performing rolls, but this is a helpful tip for everyone to remember !

    I find eG-X Fury easiest to barrel roll with; it probably has to do with my appreciation for the team (the willingness to get it to barrel roll) and my controller sensitivity. The eG-X Fury/HD craft is an animal in general though; it tends to bounce a lot.

    I found Piranha Fury fairly easy to barrel roll, too.

    I think Harimau is the best ship to BR in, mainly because it;s so light and easy to get off the ground.
