Let me say this... I like having the idea of having backseat gunners in our planes for back support but....
It's not funny when literally 99% of your backseat gunners are COMPLETELY USELESS AND DON'T EVEN BOTHER TO DEFEND THE ENTIRE DAM PLANE WHILE GETTING SHOT AT!
Sorry for my little yelling, but in all seriousness, I wish we have the ability to kick our backseat gunners because literally, most of them are completely useless....
Of course, as usual, I was going on a nice streak until I was getting chased by a fighter plane.. pretty normal as usual. I was about to switch to the back seat since apparently I have better aiming/accuracy than all my past backseat gunners, and guess what? One of my squads spawned in my plane! YAY!
I was happy that I was getting back support but guess what? It turns out I just had another dam monkey spawned in the back of my plane shooting around like a maniac when the enemy plane was behind us the entire time and started shooting at us.
And guess what the backseat gunner did? Didn't even bother to shoot the ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ enemy plane... and... we died. Also today, same thing happened... this time.. I've decided to be a d*ck and just crash the plane and jump off (i've survived and my gunner died). And i've done this so many times it's just annoying. It's to the point where I ALWAYS spam "GET OUT" multiple times on the chat and they just ignore me. No other choice but to just crash if getting shot at.
The backseat gunners are usually...
1. Shooting around like a headless chicken
2. Completely doing NOTHING
3. Just staring at the enemy plane and NOT SHOOTING!
4. Jump off my plane for a good sniper spot and i'm the taxi driver
5. And worse, at least trying, but has terrible accuracy even when i'm flying my plane still which gives the enemy plane an advantage... LOL
So yea... for me, I think it will be nice to have the option to kick our backseat gunners if they are just useless and not doing their tasks. Do you guys agree? Disagree? Man... it's even the point where I leave my current squad once I spawn on a plane too. Most of my backseat gunners are from my squad and dam.... they are just useless.
I'm not joking! I've counted and in my entire experience of flying(almost lvl 100), I only had 3 USEFUL backseat gunners. I even send them a thank you message too and would love to give them some credit.
