Abilities Tips
Missile Swarm

Use while in VTOL Jets to get clear shots for maximum efficiency.
When enemy is hiding behind a boulder, aim the reticle at zone between the closest base-edge and the top of the boulder; as the targeting columns extend away from the reticle, it will decrease the chance of missile overshooting your target.
The stun time is long enough to cancel VTOL Jets and prepare to shoot a target, which makes this a very effective tool for ambushes.

In the gameplay settings, there is an option to switch the control scheme between holding the jump button and pressing it once to toggle. Use whichever feels the most comfortable.
Due to VTOL jets, advanced bunny hop and wall jumping is more difficult, require more precise timing.
Treat the VTOL Jets as a double jump – short bursts to reach the roof of short buildings.
When activating the VTOL Jets, it consumes about 12.5% of total fuel, which only allows the player to do 8 bursts maximum with a full gauge; be careful when turning them on and off in the air.However, bursting the VTOL Jets provides a burst of speed and provides a slight dodge, at the cost of fuel.
VTOL Jets can be activated right before landing to eliminate fall stun.
Be careful when using VTOL Jets when flying through gravity cannon, as the jets add to the momentum, and thus can allow the player to overshoot the normal flight path.
Jet-Fighter HUD
Due to the wide scanning range of Jet-Fighter HUD, purposely conducting skydives through the use of ultimate, jump tower, geyser, and even trident-ejections can help provide good intel of enemy location in a large area.Do note that while the scan is not revealed to unsuspecting enemies, alert players will hear the takeoff and notice the dive trail.
Skyward DiveRemember Skyward Dive could be used as an excellent recon ability, as her passive to scan for enemies works both during launch and skydiving. It does not have to be used to team relocation purposeCommunicate with teammates if intending to use it as a scan instead of relocation.
It is very beneficial to use this if the Ring is right behind the player, and the next Ring is a long way away.
ReconA survey beacon can be used again when the next round starts.

Voice Lines



Bold, brash, fiery and fierce, Kairi Imahara isn’t above greasing palms and bending the law. When she was a child, she stole a Titan. It belonged to her dad: callsign Viper. She wanted to be just like him when she grew up. But one day he left on a mission and never returned. In some ways, she still followed in his footsteps: it wasn’t a Titan, but her ship offered a decent living. Her personal life, however, was anything but. During the day, she smuggled precious cargo, and at night, went shot for shot with the outlaws and mercs in the bars. But even though she had her ladies, her liquor, and her love of the sky, she was still obsessed with finding the man who’d put her father in harm’s way: his commander, Kuben Blisk.
