Gun Fighting in Ace Mode

When attempting a gun kill in Ace mode, it can be very difficult to out-turn your opponent. In this case, instead of turning nose-to-tail, try turning nose-to-nose, slowing up, and then reversing your turn and allowing the enemy to pass in front of you. Be ready to shoot fast and be sure to lead your target.

Another tactic that may prove successful in Ace mode is to turn in front of your opponent and then perform a maneuver that makes him overshoot. This will put you on his tail in perfect firing position.
