Usage Of Flying In Anthem
Fly To Travel & Re-position In Battle
The main use of flying in Anthem is for your Javelin to traverse across the map and also heavily used in combat - for re-positioning in the middle of the battle. Utilizing this feature will allow you to reposition yourself to vantage points faster.
Certain Javelins Have Unique Flying Features

Storm Has Electric Shield While Hovering & Can Hover Longer
When hovering, the Storm forms a protective shield around it - lessening the damage it receives from attacks. Since it's a Javelin class that utilizes hovering more than others, it does not increase its heat gauge as much.Check Out Storm Javelin Guide Here!
Colossus Can Open Shield While In Flight
The Colossus is able to open it shield while flying. It can do a powerful two-hit attack by flying towards a target, using its shield to block incoming fire and body check the enemy, then immediately do a melee attack to deal a good amount of damage.Check Out Colossus Javelin Guide Here!
Tips For Flying / Hovering
Press Hover While Flying To Do Quick Stops
When you're in full throttle mode and flying towards an objective, pressing the hover button will immediately make you stop. Using this in conjunction with your flying allows you to do quick turns or prevent you from hitting walls or obstacles.
Adjust Flight Speed In Narrow Areas
There are 3 flight speeds available in Anthem. Full throttle and two others that slow your propulsion for easier maneuverability . When you're in a narrow cave or corridor, adjust your flight speed to make it easier to maneuver around the space.
Hitting Walls & Obstacles Will Make You Fall
If you're not careful enough and you hit walls while flying, you will fall to the ground. While falling, you're extremely vulnerable to attacks. Master flying plus doing quick stops & turns to avoid falling to the ground.
Features Of Flying
Keep Near Bodies Of Water To Lower Heat Gauge
Flying in full throttle will bring up your heat gauge fast. Fly near bodies of water to keep your Javelin in a "cooled" state - lowering / clearing your heat gauge while preventing it from going up too fast.
Take Note Of Altitude When Flying
Flying up will drastically increase your heat gauge as you're increasing your altitude. Flying down or maintaining your altitude will maintain / lower your heat gauge. Always keep your altitude in mind while flying so you can stay in the air longer.
