Hell I'd be happy with an unlimited supply of standard rockets...

I actually had my first Thurster-on-Thruster dogfight. We both used up our ammo wothout scoring a kill and ended up trying to ram each other to death midair :D In the end we called it a draw and went our separate ways but it was good goofy fun.

My new game is trying to plummet directly onto people's heads like Super Mario onto a Goomba. If you miss but still get close you can go for a JATO blast consolation prize.

I wouldn't mind seeing an addition in the future where the "Missiles" are changed to "Standard Missiles" and a new option of "Assault Missiles"

Standard Missiles are unlimited and Assault Missiles are R2K missiles and you can carry sixteen.

I have to add, I've never seen anyone in a Jetpack except me. Mostly the kids go for the Deluxo over this

Very very very disappointed that you can't create an air race with the Thruster.

Well thats sh*t, tight and extremely technical courses that make you use the Strafe Mode would be excellent.

At least I couldn't find it under either helicopters, jets or ordinary planes. Checked special vehicles as well even though they only are available under stunt races. Had some nice ideas where you really could showcase the jetpacks abilities.

 

I also have to ask, what platform are you on? I'm on pc and it would be fun to fly around with other jetpack fans.

I saw my second Jetpack today!
 

This was none hostile as well so we zipped around Paleto Bay. The Thruster is much faster than I imagined when someone else is suing it properly.

I don't get why people dislike this thing so much!
Yes it sucks that you can't use your own weapons on it and it has weak firepower but damn it's nimble and fun as hell to use

When I keep my expectations low when flying this, I am pleasantly surprised, however when I have high expectations, I am rather disappointed, but I paid 3 million dollars for it, and can't sell it I might as well fly it around.

Bounty hunting with the Thruster.

 

 

Also took down my first jet before this. Very easy when you can hide among the cluster of skysrapers downtown and you have a jet pilot that actually thinks he will stand a chance there.

Also remember that the Thruster can stop almost instantly, use this to get behind Jets.

How good are the machine guns on this? If they're at least Buzzard-standard, then you might be better off with them for taking down jets (the missiles are just like a Buzzard's as far as I know, which will rarely catch a jet).

 

Can you have two of them, one with each? Kind of like my two Hunters (one with chaff, one with flares).

I have not tried the Machine Guns but I assume they are Buzzard ones.

No, it has its own specific spot so I doubt you can have two.

^ Well it's true that you have one special place for Thruster in your facility but I've heard you can place it in any other garage just like a normal car

So I'm guessing you can have more then one.

Store any vehicle in any slot glitches are common. So, a Hydra in your MOC PV or a thruster anywhere. Not sure if you can then buy a second, I doubt it.

Well yea, I know that. I thought he was talking about legitimately storing the Thruster in a different garage.

I really wish they would add this to creator races. They have added other standard vehicles from the Doomsday dlc to it so hopefully they will come to their senses and add the Thruster as well. Have some, what I think are good ideas, for som nice races that would showcase the jetpack much better than the DD finale.

Is there any way (currently) to play with one on PS4 to see if I like it?

I know I can't sell it, I know it's not super-fast, I know its ammo is limited.

If you're not in your Facility, who/what do you call to make it appear?

You can use it in the DoomsDay finale, that's the only way

You call your mechanic for it, just like a car

Darn.  I did the finale once, as the host, so I only got about a minute to play with it before floating over to the observatory.  At first I had no idea what the controls were, so my random teammates got Avon and most of the NPC helicopters.

 

Since I keep hearing it compared to the Buzzard, and I already own that can can call up to three at once with different cooldown timers, and those have infinite rockets, there isn't much need (at any price) for the Thruster as well.

It works and feels like a really small helicopter except you dont have a tail to worry about.

Where it properly shines is its Strafe/Hover Mode that allows you to do instant stops, move in a different direction to he one you are facing basically "air-drift" around corners.

Thruster is to helis what bikes are to cars.

The thing is massive... of all the things I've rammed with the Avenger, nothing hurt it quite like ramming a Thrusters.

Tried it in AirQuota, it didn't feel great... I didn't feel I was moving with the precision and the agility I hoped for.
Meh :/

I haven't added weapons or countermeasures to mine (yet). I wish there was a way to change the smoke colour in any case.

Try first person.

 

Also can't recall if this has the Handling options but if so Race will be very very different to stock.
