How the hell can anyone acquire a Jet from Fort Zancudo?

Recommended Posts

Mike Haddrick

I looked at other players flying Military Jets and I thought to myself "I want one." ...So when I tried to acquire one, I ended up being blown up by five different tanks.

 

If I can't do it, How the hell can other players do it?

I was on foot in the base and had to jack a military pilot out of one, quickly took off over fence, avoided missiles..

 

 

Guess it just depends on how bad you want one :D

ps avoid tanks

It's easiest for me if I helicopter over the top and then parachute in, that way you can land pretty much right next to a jet, it's all about speed and timing.

gunna need a buddy for my method, shoot him in the face, have him start a 1v1 deathmatch, get into the base (i use helicopters, or the jump on the north side of the tunnel) steal jet, make getaway without ever getting a single star

Get bullet-proof tires and jump the cliff to the left of the freeway headed south, just before the tunnel going under Zancoudo. Drive around to check safety and draw the mercs away from the hangar (only take the one in the hangar) then grab it and do a half-loop out of the hangar to escape over the mountains to the north.

fly a chopper into the hangar, steal jet, knife flight at low altitude until you get behind a hill.

 

step 3. profit.

Fly in with chopper to the ones lined up closest to runway, go out of parking spot and do a u-turn, fly low over fence with no need to do a loop.

 

Drive up the jump near tunnel, do the same. Don't just fly straight out towards the hanger, do a turn so you don't get the jet on your ass.

 

 

EDIT: Don't bother with armor or doing your car up, i do it with the taxi or sh*tty cars anyway cause you're not staying long..

It seems pretty random when the tanks spawn, but when they do it's pain in the ass. You want my advice, get in there and get the f*ck out as fast as you can, and make sure you can avoid those missiles they shoot at you by flying low.

Is this The Guy?

I just make sure I have a vehicle of above average speed and jump the hill on the other side of the tunnel. If you know where the jets are you just need to be real quick and get there and jump in and take off. No wasted movement.

This is the Easiest Method

1)Get a helicopter, anything besides the annihilator. It's ok but just alot slower

2)Fly into the base with some speed and head for the open hangar

3)Land directly next to the jet and jump onto it yourself and then hit Triangle/A (you have quite a bit of time and should mostly get wanted upon your feet touching the ground after exiting chopper where as the parachuting method gets you 4 stars instantly)

4) Get the hell outta there! Stay as low as you can over the fence.

5) Call lester, or if you've got 5 minutes to waste keep on rapidly changing your altitude to avoid those pesky choppers that spawn right in front of you.

 

Ive only ever once been unlucky with this online and as I was heli'ing in theres a tank right infront of the hangar. I knew it wouldnt go well. Best of luck.

Fight the military in hand to hand combat until you destroy all of them and you can choose whatever plane your heart desires.

Stay as far away from the far side/hangers as possible.

Don't full full throttle, just let it cruise.

grand theft spaghetti

easy. I get it without any problems 9 out of 10 times. I usually commit suicide trying to dive bomb into another player because their isn't anything to do in the sky.

 

having good dog fighting skills on this game just gets you voted out.

 

get any fast helicopter.

 

land next to jet and get in. unless you see a tank spawned near it. you will explode and die.

 

fly straight up and pull up your landing gear as soon as you can.

 

listen for the missile coming and knife out of the way when it appears behind you.

 

very rarely will the base send a jet after you or fire more than two missiles.

 

if it takes more than 3 trys just get some one else to get the jet for you. your pilot skills suck.

Exactly. Honestly I've always been disappointed that it wasn't harder. Seems like any chump can go grab one... guess not though, huh?

Jump the fence, find jet, get in, take off straight up until out of range of missiles.

It's actually super, super easy.

There are certain jets that are much easier to take (like the two sitting out on the tarmac), but in my experience, it all comes down to luck. Sometimes trucks/tanks will spawn just 50 or so meters away from the jets, usually they don't spawn at all (or very far away). Check the good ol' Youtubes, there are plenty of tutorial vids.

Luck has absolutely nothing to do with it, I just got 4 jets in a row because I know how to do it. A guy showed me the other night. Get a light fast car and drive up the hill that's on the right side of the tunnel and you'll jump straight over the fence. Drive straight to the jet on the tarmac. All the times I've done it I came across ONE guy I had to shoot, he was standing next to the jet.

So the tank you can get, do you have to jack a live tank thats trying to kill you, or is there a parked tank somewhere you can steal? Im going to do some exploring there soon anyway. Honestly I don't see the big fuss about difficulty in getting the jet, I simply jump over the fence, grab the one in the hanger and fly away, calling lester to remove wanted level as I do it.

I came out of the hanger once, the tank was right there. I held down Y and jacked it from the guy driving.

It's pretty easy for me. Yeah, both me and the Jet will get damaged pretty surely, but I still can get it with this method.

 

1) Acquire a plane or a helicopter.

2) Fly on Fort Zancudo.

3) Parachute in (important to know the Jet spawning locations, so you can parachute near one)

4) Try to parachute to the Jet in the hangar (some protection from tanks)

5) Fly off like a true pilot.

 

Sometimes there seems to spawn 64590548 tanks right in front of the hangar though. If you can't or don't want to use a plane/helicopter for some reason, here's another way.

 

1) Acquire a fast car (Bifta or Elegy recommended, since they are free and if they get destroyed, there will be no Insurance costs)

2) Drive to a Jet (I've mostly seen the Barracks and the off-road cars while driving, Rhinos seem to be more rare for me)

3) Try to fly off like a sir.

Easy, make a Sandking XL your personal vehicle, park it next to that cement wall(to the south), jump the wall, kill the guard, run across runways, kill guard by jet and take off straight. Oh yeah, when the jet behind you gets tone lock, flick the analog stick up to lose the missile. After that I usually, dive downward towards the mountain, look behind me to see him follow, then fly straight up until I'm inverted heading the other way. AI jets can't seem to handle flying straight up.

In fact, you should go as low as possible, since the missiles won't lock on if you go under the radar. At least that was my experience one time when stealing a Jet.
