Anthem Water Skimming


Keeping the Javelin suit cool while flying in Anthem, is essential in extending flight time.

I usually just fly until I overheat, then run a little bit, waiting for cooldown, then takeoff again. I never considered flying near water sources, until I saw an Interceptor do it, in game.

In the beginning of the below video, an Interceptor flies very close to water, did not overheat and continued flying for quite some distance.

I knew water cooled the Javelin suits, but I did not realize flying close to a water source, would provide the same cooling effect as stepping in water.

I am sure this info was mentioned by the devs in some video or probably in one of the tutorials. But it was more cool to see it in game, and acknowledging it in real time.
