Wordle of The Day Hints & Answer for Word 530: December 1, 2022

Let's get your Wordle started with some hints!

It’s December, but the cold hasn’t stopped your Wordle of the day one bit! Yes, we’ve got the usual hints for Dec. 1, 2022. Otherwise known as puzzle #530 if you needed to know. Personally, not much has changed for me this month, as things get chilly and snowy early where I live, but that’s just fine by me. I much prefer it to the summer heat! Anyway, let’s talk about those hints. If you’re here having issues guessing the correct word, we’re also here to help as usual. Whether you just need a few hints to get you on the right track or you’re simply looking for the answer as a means of keeping your score intact, we’re here to help.

We’re going to give some hints first before sharing the answer. If you just want said answer, scroll to the very bottom of the article. It’s right there in bold text below the aforementioned “SPOILER WARNING.” For those of you who just want a tiny nudge in the right direction, the next section includes both some easy hints (whether the word is a noun or a verb, a very broad category of what it could be, etc.) followed by some more specific clues. The latter should all but tell you what the word is.

Note: It seems the New York Times recently made some changes to the rules of Wordle going forward! Words ending in things like “ES” should be out of the picture, for one, among a few other tweaks. You should probably keep that in mind as you play along!

Today’s Wordle Word Hints of the Day: #530

In this section, we try to keep things vague and only point you in the right direction. Hints at this stage will be more about the meaning of the word, rather than any specific letters that are used in the word itself. We also won’t use other methods like “rhymes with,” “sounds similar to,” and the like. More specific hints are included just after that — finally followed by the full solution after a Wordle spoiler warning. Figured we’d just warn you one last time!

Easy Hints

These first hints will steer you in a general direction without giving too much away!

  • Is a verb.
  • Something that fighter pilots can do.

Even with those two hints, there are still plenty more possibilities to choose from. We’ll try to narrow things down in the next section!

More Specific Hints

You still absolutely get credit (and keep that streak going) if you need these beefier hints. Let’s narrow it down and get a bit more specific.

  • Another word for removing something after it was inserted, often very abruptly.
  • Something a fighter pilot might do specifically in an emergency to escape their plane.

Still drawing a blank? Think about it some more or scroll down for the final answer reveal.
