Frequent combat seen throughout The Falconeer is against other fast-moving creatures. The player must use agility and acrobatics to train their weapons against enemy fighters.
Stealth can play a role by hiding within clouds, this is both visually seen in-game and also indicated via the HUD when the player is out of sight.
There are also:
- Surface ships,
- Medium sized zeppelin airships
- Giant capital ships both surface and air.
These are the target for set-piece type missions, the player will need friendly fighters and his wingman to help accomplish this.
