I was curious as to what would be the best buy between the Buzzard ($1.75m) and the Frogger ($1.3m)?

 

The Buzzard is clearly more expensive, however it does have weaponary.

The Frogger is cheaper, and perhaps faster due to less weaponary.

 

Thoughts and ideas? What would you buy and why?

Depends on what you need them for and what do you prefer.

 

After I had made enough cash, I immediately bought the Buzzard, since the Frogger (or any other normal chopper) is useless for me.

 

It really comes up to what you will use them for. If you're gonna hunt for bounties or generally cause havoc in Free Mode, go for the Buzzard. If you're a more friendly, peaceful player then get the Frogger.

Like Bull12345Bull said before, it depends on how you play. If you wanna go hunt people and such, buzzard. If you need a helicopter for a fast entrance/ exit, and like to travel with friends and such, the Frogger.

I personally for the Frogger first since I'm a peaceful player and usually use it for hot extracts. I'll let me friends do the shooting, I'm just there to pick people up.

We had this discussion with another poster just a few days ago.

 

Get the Buzzard. It comes in handy during some of the missions, flies about as well as a Frogger and shoots rockets. A no-brainer. If you play missions at all, get a Buzzard. Obviously it isn't the right fit for most missions, but the ones it does well for makes it worth it. Mixed Up with Coke is easy with a Buzzard, for example.

Froggers spawn allmost everywhere, buzzards are harder to find.

Also the buzzard is usefull in missions, free room, and is smaller which is usefull to fly very low through the city

The Buzzard will pay for itself in missions, you can save a lot of time and ammo costs using a Buzzard.

 

Trash Talk

Mixed up with Coke

Chopper Tail

Clearing the Cathouse

Crystal Clearout 1,2 & 3

 

Can all be done easily and solo if need be with a Buzzard

Honestly, I haven't ever considered buying any helicopter. The Frogger spawns at all helipads/airports. and the Buzzard spawns about 50/50 with the Cargobob on the Merryweather helipad near Simeon's export garage, and also regularly at LSIA and Sandy Shores Airfield. Waste of money IMO, as you can get them for free all these places.

:) I'm friendly, but I'm also in a Buzzard. See what I mean? Just in case some idiot shoots at me. :)

Buzzard. You're spending an extra 400k for infinite missiles and vulcan cannons... that's a steal right there. (;

This. They are common and having your own doesn't really make sense if you're not a grinder. A Tank on the other hand cannot be stolen easily and it makes sense to purchase one.

 

I only bought a Buzzard becuase of hooker cash.

The Buzzard wins,hands down to me. While it is dearer, it can be used in many missions and makes lots of missions a walk in the park solo. It will pay for itself time and again.

The frogger is my favourite non armed helicopter, but they can be found often at helipads easy enough.

I personally would buy the buzzard. Later down the line a frogger if I felt flush.

The Buzzard, hands down. If you can afford it, buy it. It has everything the Frogger has, plus the weapons. It doesn't even matter what play style you choose, the Buzzard is faster and more maneuverable so it's a better choice for traveling as well. Only down side is, it makes you a target.

I have both, basically fly the same, Buzzard is faster, and you can land in tight spaces. Don't be cheap OP, and spend the extra 450K for the Buzzard. Froggers are a dime a dozen, I bought mine during the billionaire era.

I feel that the Frogger looks cooler, also a lot of your say the Buzzard is quicker and more maneuverable but when ive done tests, it seems the other way around.

this.

 

don't spent any money on the frogger u can find it on every known heli pad...

...the buzzard is just a big advantage for missions, bounty-hunts and free-roam pvp... (like others here already stated)

 

if you have gathered 1.3m - its not that far to make another 400k. =)

 

 

so long

Try a few helicopter races.

 

Also, according to gta wiki, handling on the buzzard iz 10, while on the Frogger it's 8.5

Buzzard is safer, faster, more practical and a better in purchase in every way. It basically paid for itself in missions being completed in half the time

Buying non weaponry helicopters is pretty pointless. You can just call for one from Lester or the mercenaries for $1000.

Buzzard is an investment, it pays for itself.

The Frogger is basically useless.

OP, look at it this way, you're in a lobby with 13-16 high levels. I guarantee you they won't be chasing you in Mavericks, and Froggers, the first 10 kills alone will pay for itself.

The only advantage the Frogger has over the Buzzard is the protected tail rotor, to keep you from cutting your head off.

So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Buzzard FTW!

Best Pegasus vehicle to own IMO.

I'm glad you dropped the maverick from the frogger vs maverick discussion and added the buzzard. now just drop the frogger too and you'll be there

If you're definitely going to get a chopper, get the Buzzard. Its way better for all the reasons described throughout this thread.
