"Jacking" a moving chopper

Recommended Posts

PorridgeIsGood

Apologies if this has been asked before, but is it possible to seize control of a moving helicopter?

This came to mind as I gained considerable altitude, flying over a police heli.

I'm almost certain it can be done, since I'm pretty sure you freeze when hijacking.

If it already has, would someone be kind enough to link me to a video, if such a thing exists?

 

Many thanks,

Yes it is possible, CJ needs to be standing on a solid surface and the helicopter needs to be right next to him.

My goal now is to steal the other helicopter. The "gay" blue and white colored copter. The news copter I think we say.

Sorry for not wording it properly. I meant skydiving onto a helicopter and ripping its pilot from his seat.

The News Chopper can be jacked in similar fashion.

It is actually easier to jack as it will come pretty close when you don't watch it and in addition it won't shoot at you.

 

And yes the AI controlled aircraft does not actually carry a pilot or passengers (outside missions).

 

And no you can't jack it midair by flying by in a parachute or jetpack, and you can't jack it from standing on top of it either.

How unfortunate.

Well, that was a fun hour.

Lots of boom, jumps and lulz.

What i did was go to the navy base in SF ( helps if you do it early you only get 4 stars)

 

Now stand on the platform hanging over the edge, the choppers fly right next to you, basically on the ship! Keep moving around on that platform so its hard for the police chopper to hit you, and grab whichever ones comes first

If you are going for the news chopper, grab the police one anyway and park it somewhere out of sight. Note it will still shoot at you even when it is sitting on the ground with the door open.

Haha that's awesome! If I ever manage to nick a 'copter I will bear that in mind.

Interesting! I didn't know that, nor have I experienced it (and I have fooled around quite a bit with 'em)

I thought all AI behavior stops once CJ enters.

 

I know that if 1 drops in the water and CJ recovers it without entering it, then it will continue it's business.

 

Does it only shoot if your wanted level is high enough?

I guess. Il tell you exactly what happened.

 

I was going for the news chopper to be impounded, but i found it always flew a little bit higher than the police chopper. Whats more, the police chopper kept discharging swat guys onto the ship, so i thought i should jack it and put it away. I assumed once i set it down it would stop, but from what i remember i think the AI was still talking, and its searchlight was still on

 

I also remember it firing at me while trying to get the News Chopper even though it was just sitting there, and hell maybe if i waited it may have started putting SWAT guys on the ship somehow
