Driftboard Gameplay Tips
Swerve Left to Right to Avoid Gunfire
Make use of the Driftboard's mobility to survive gunfire. Whether you're trying to runaway and rush an enemy, make sure to swerve from left to right to make yourself a harder target.
Jump Up and Shoot Enemies as You Go Down
Go on the offensive by rushing enemies with the boost, jump, then shoot them as you go down! This may take a bit of practice, but when done right, it can be a viable way to defeat enemies.
Use to Flank Enemies
Due to its overall silence as a vehicle, you can use it to quickly flank enemies and shoot them where they don't expect it! Just make sure not to use boost because that creates a louder noise that enemies may notice.
