In GTA IV there were different locations on that map in which helicopters would spawn for your use. I was thinking about the different options where they could put the aircraft's for GTA V (Other then the airport obviously).

My best idea would be a Battleship off the coast of Los Angeles with Jet's & Military Copters galore on board.

Share your ideas!

The position of helicopters and planes in multiplayer is very important.

The person who finds a helicopter in IV has a big advantage in a few game modes, not all of them.


A little more ontopic perhaps:
Police headquarters.
Ambulance helicopter at a hospital.

Exactly...I think they should spread them out more for GTA V as well...gives players a chance to get one faster and defend themselves...

I'm sure they will since the map will be huge

Planes should be more frequent in Multplayer than helicopters.

Reason being, although I enjoy flying planes more than helis, helis are just more useful in MP because of their hovering opposed to a jet's non-stop high speed. Unless R* makes the hydra similar to the one in SA in which yo can hover. Then, that will be the best vehicle in the whole game hands down and should probaly not even be featured in MP.

I think the number of aircraft on the map in multiplayer should be equal to or higher than the number of people in a full lobby. That way when the inevitable happens, and the fighter jet trolls show up, there are enough planes for somone to get one and shoot them down.

Jets will always be on the top of the food chain.
If someone has a jet in multiplayer, there should be the ability to take it down from the ground. Like heat seeking missiles which move much faster than the RPG and go after heat. (hence, heatseeking tounge.gif )


But helicopters will indeed be more useful.

And i dont see it happening we will be able to have passengers in a Hydra, let alone doing a 'drive by' with it.

The most I expect out of the hydra is being able to hover; I highly doubt it would be capable of carrying 2 people. Lol that would be funny to do a drive by, though. the pilot is hovering and the passenger's just shooting nearby helicopters with an RPG tounge.gif



@Ben_GTAV: What, the Cropduster isn't good enough for you? But I agree, I will be pretty sad if the hydra isn't featured in Multiplayer. But c'mon its Rockstar, of course they will put the hydra in MP smile.gif

If one of these was docked close to the coast with ladders leading up the side of the ship that would be AWESOME

haha nooo but the cropduster would be fun in MP...driving over people dropping chemicals on them to weaken there health devil.gif

And I have no doubts the Hydra will be in MP.

Imagine getting your whole crew on board the ship and fighting off Hydra's with those????

That would be fun as hell.

If the host disallows the RPGs, then Hydras/Hunters shouldn't spawn.

I was able to take down the Hunter without a RPG in GTA IV no problem. Hydra may be a bit harder though.

As long as there isn't a person camping at the airport hovering above the helipad with a buzzard spamming rockets at people than I'm fine. There was not enough secret locations of spawned helicopters that people knew about. But there is probably going to be more than one airport and a military base so I'm actually not too worried. biggrin.gif

A better alternative to 'nerfing' aircraft is to give them limited ammo...

This would be a good solution, as long as there is a way to re-fill your ammo. Maybe random ammo crates will be scattered throughout the map, on rootfops, mountains, in the airport, etc. ?

refilling should take a while, just like getting a new vehicle.
It'll prevent people spamming rockets/bullets and give people who like to be in the actual city rather than staring at the sky a chance to fight back...

Ground should be more powerful than air.,

I feel like if they ever did limit the ammo (which I personally doubt they will) you would be able to get more by landing on a health pack.

No that would f*cking suck.
You'd have some imbecile spamming rockets at some guy, and then flying to the nearest health pack, and then going back and spamming rockets.

Limited ammo, no refills.
Best way to do it.

That'd be really frustrating having to get a new chopper every time your ammo runs out. All they need to do is either slow down the rate of fire on rockets or add long cool down times and quicker overheating of rockets and maybe the guns if they prove too powerful.

I do believe there will be maybe three airports as well as Edward's Airforce Base. This in addition to a skycrane at the port. Police choppers at police departments, and a few other helipads around the map should provide plenty of aircraft for the LS citizen. The skimmer and cropduster will probably be the farthest planes to travel to as they would be in the sea and in the countryside.

Just the same as it is really frustrating for me to have proper gunfights on the ground, until some jerk comes along and ruins it all with a buzzard.

We need heatseeking missiles for on the ground.

And maybe some vehicles that can attack a plane or chopper (GET TO THE CHOPPA) from the ground.

Example:

Secret service car with minigun on top. Perfect to take down a chopper.

Waterplanes in water (obviously)
Hydras on aircraft carrier and military base
Cargo helicopters at airports and aircraft carriers
Mavericks on hospitals, police stations, private estates and airport

Putting that aside though I find your comment to be a little stupid if I'm honest but each to there own I guess. sly.gif

I doubt they will limit ammo in helicopters but fear not, they are introducing effective helicopter hunters into the game.

GTA helicopters are a ground menace but they can't barrel roll or loop, they are stuck in a 2D plane of attack but with altitude control. Airplanes can loop, roll, split S, Immelman turn and do what is called a rolling scissors which is taking the fight into the vertical. Helicopters can't go there and will be sitting ducks. devil.gif
I'm going to take all my RC airplane experience and unload it on loitering helicopters spamming ground targets. Multiplayer in GTAV will be more balanced.
