annihilator and buzzard: understanding them and their roles

Recommended Posts

xMementoMorix

I think the the Annihilator needs tracers and more damage for the guns. I have no ideal if my rounds are hitting the target and they somehow survive getting hit by 4 guns.

 

i notice that too for some odd reason. even if im sure i know how to aim my machine guns, the players somehow survive a full barrrage. though i killed a few with it

Co-pilot dosn't take control of missiles, they get access to a secondary set of missiles.

 

Also worth noteing that the buzzard can have 2 people in the back armed with primary weapons (such as the mg)

false - co- pilot takes control of primary missles, rendering them unavailable for the pilot.

 

source - Do it all the time.

 

also, the machine guns on the choppers in this game are a joke. That being said, the buzzard is the superior because of the rockets.

 

even without lock on, if you can lead your target, rockets are extremely overpowered. I've gotten over 100 kills with buzzard rockets, not 1 single kill with machine guns in either.

tbh I find buzzards easier to use.

Learn how to compensate and it's all good to go

A question to people who use helicopters a lot (and are good at it):

Which cam do you use in chopper? The "1st person" view or the normal 3rd person view?

the third person is a must because u need to keep watch of ur helicoptor tail from hitting obstacles

 

It's not a must lol I use first person view. Proper pilots use first person view. If you know your chopper, you can judge whether you will hit anything or not.

The anni is sh*t in gtao. It was better in IV. you shoot the anni and it's engines will start to give up. Use the mini-gun and pilots are done for. The helis get destroyed way to quick.

It's great for Anti-Air...except for the Lazzer. Burned through 16 or so police choppers before it started sputtering. Not so great for Ground Vehicles though.

I think the game needs a real attack helicopter. Like an Apache or something.

 

Don't know how many people go to the movies in-game, but one of the trailers actually has an attack chopper like that. Might be added in later, since the model already exists.

annihilator annihilates all air vehicles besides the lazer, found this out my self. the buzzard has nothing on the damage the annihilator can do, all you need is a second of direct hits from the annihilators guns to blow up another chopper

Yeah, the Hunter was shown in "The Simian" trailer + an old screenshot of the LifeInvader website. The model is there, but for whatever reason, R* didn't actually include the vehicle in the game.

Buzzards are only scary because of Rockets. Annhilators are intimidating for their size.

Buzzard with auto-aim rocktes VS. Annihilator with machine guns.

 

I know what I'd place my money on.

im terrible at shooting the chopper machine guns straight/on target. i prefer to be the missile man in the passenger seat (with a pilot that communicates).

Good post, haven't really compared the damage stats before so this could be handy.

 

That said, being good with the missiles on the buzzard + moving around to avoid hits while preparing to launch will kick anyone's ass, whether they're in another aircraft or on the ground.

 

I'd still prefer the buzzard simply because i can fly it far better than the Annihilator and it has better maneuverability and deadlier weapons.

The annihilator is pathetically worthless. I laugh when I see one coming. The buzzard, in the hands of a skilled pilot, can be a death machine.

Overall the Buzzard is better, it's just common sense.

A lot of the time people will hover over you trying to get the target sighted, that's when you know they aren't very good and you won't have a hard time taking them out.

 

If you can be killed with an AP pistol, you need practice.

As a veteran pilot, we will be going through an explanation between these two attack helicoptors and what their pros and cons are so you can utilize their strengths for the right situations.

Just out of curiosity, no disrespect intended, what exactly do you mean when you call yourself veteran pilot? And informative post! Makes me want to try the annhialator more often, just to see if I can get some kills with it rather than just middle locking with the buzzard.
