I was more mixed on Just Cause 3 than I was expecting to be, but the game can still be a hell of a lot of fun. It’s definitely more fun once you’ve gotten your head around how to fly without crashing into everything.

I played a lot of Just Cause 2, but it still took me a little while to get my head around the new game’s wingsuit controls. In the interest of helping out any new players who want to get up and flying, I recorded the above video to demonstrate some good basic flying tips.

If you’re already a pro, obviously, this video’s not for you. The gist of my advice: Use the grapple to pull yourself along while flying, learn to pull back so that you skate over ridges and buildings, and use the parachute to stop yourself and quickly gain altitude if you’re about to crash into the ground.

Good luck out there, and if you see an enemy helicopter, grapple up and say hi.
