Because a helicopter can't strafe faster than an aiming reticle, and its horizontal movements are extremely easy to follow and predict.

 

If you want to potentially throw them off, hold the brake and tip the nose down as far as possible. The helicopter can move down faster than any other direction, so use it to your advantage.

 

Of course, if you know where a sniper is, the best way to protect yourself is to spin the helicopter around to face away from them. Worst thing you can do is aim directly at them.

Yeah I always fly backwards to them. It's so crazy how they get me out by the time I get set though. Oh it pisses me off. haha

Because we're good? I laugh whenever someone comes at me with a buzzard...you have to be better than me at more than one thing in that encounter...good luck with that.

Have you tried outrunning the police helicopters in the Annihilator ? Damn impossible. It doesn't go fast at all. They are always right on your ass shooting you. Then by the time you know it, you start descending because the engine is failing.

I don't believe it. Because in GTA4 no one could hit me. I believe it's because they slowed down the strafing of the choppers. That's exactly what they did.

That's where I perfected the skill...You've just not run into the right sniper.... a smart sniper uses his surroundings to his advantage against a heli...you've got a better chance at kamikaze'n me than blowing me up or getting a clean line of fire.

Couldn't agree more it's brutally slow to fly, seems like the helicopter of choice for loading up with people if they wanted to shoot because it has great stability.

Haven't sniped a guy while he was in a helicopter yet, but I did snipe and kill some guy who just launched in the air on a stunt jump. I just aimed in and fired a shot just for sh*ts and it said I killed him.

Luckiest shot ever.

Most people are absurdly good at this

I can't fathom how considering how laggy the aiming is, the low frame rate, and the dead zone on the ps3 sticks

It's because most people are playing on Xbox.

 

Oh right, you meant people you play with ;) Couldn't tell you.

People snipe you in a buzzard? If it was me I'd either:

1. Run underneath it and try to throw a sticky bomb or

2. Rocket launcher you.

 

The latter is my preferred choice.
