Enter sniper mode, then hold Fire to charge. Once fully charged, exit sniper mode while holding Fire. The next time you want to go into sniper mode, hold Fire as you change to that view. You will now have a fully charged weapon the moment you change into sniper mode.
Most of the time using the battloid mode is useful for counter-missile efforts. However, with some practice you can learn to switch to jet or guardian (works either way), immediately fire a volley of missiles, then switch back to battleoid. This allows you to launch a strong assault while keeping missiles off your back.
Missiles do not take that many shots to detonate. A useful trick is to use short bursts of fire (releasing and pressing Secondary Fire rapidly and quickly). This gives you more of a chance to eliminate a lot of missile volleys in a much shorter time.
It is possible to use the Super Veritech Armor during ground combat. First, successfully complete any space mission with the Super Veritech Armor. Then, choose "Continue" when the level is complete. Since it is not possible to change armors this way, the armor remains Super Veritech. Note: This can only be used for the next level that has not yet been completed.
