A dawdle to blast through

Your opponents, too, don’t act with the aggression or grace of raptors, flying around in mostly smooth, easy-to-track arcs that make most dogfights a dawdle to blast through.

What does “a dawdle to blast through” mean??

And what does this phrase mean “It’s not just the gameplay that has feet of lead” ??

Thanks in advance. :slight_smile:

The opponents move in a slow and boring way; that is why shooting them all down is a boring waste of time.

When you have feet of lead, you move very slowly and awkwardly.

Thank you very much :slight_smile: Your help is much appreciated.
