The Mighty Useless Annihilator!

Recommended Posts

Wetherootesy

The annihilator isn't useless, you just got to use it for what it's used for, it is more of a transport helicopter rather then the lightweight buzzard, but in the air the mini guns cause more damage to air and sea vehicles, I had a dog fight with it against a buzzard and it took it out a lot quicker then any other helicopter, the buzzard made for ground support but everyone just spams the lock ons, with out the missiles the buzzard would be very useless in the sky against the annihilator hence why this helicopter isn't useless... But I do agree with making it fly the same as the GTA IV version

 

So remember kids: buzzard is for ground attacks or noobs with lock ons cause the can't use miniguns. Annihilator is for air and sea vehicles test it out, I allways own the buzzard in the air with it

Just buff the range on the miniguns to something beyond useless, they are already much stronger than the buzzard's

The only reason I have an Annihiator is because way, way back months ago I bought it thinking it was the Buzzard.

Yeah it's sh*t

Give the anny BP windows, quadruple its damage resistance. Make the guns shoot 5x further, and increase the fire rate x10.

 

Oh, and give it the camo paint like the cargobob

I remember flying around in an annihilator. A buzzard came after me, and when it fired its rockets I decided its time to ditch it. Having your guy leap out of a helicopter as it explodes behind him is amazing.

Military vehicles (except the tank) are all easy to shoot down with a few shots of the Heavy Sniper. They should either be buffed up or the tank downgrade its armor. Honestly, I think the Buzzard is fine as it is and I love it. Don't really use the machine guns on it. To make it fair and usable, they should make the Annihilator have explosive rounds as it used to in Gay Tony. Whenever someone ran for a Buzzard, I would grab the Annihilator. I would pick it over the Buzzard every time. It was fast and the guns were deadlier and more efficient. Fast forward to now with the Buzzard with lock-on rockets and simple machine guns while the Annihilator has double machine guns, it isn't as fair as it should be. It's really no competition.

In the mission where you have to steal an Annihilator from Paleto Bay and take it to Sandy Shores but a slow moving jet comes in to try and take you out (and usually crashes in Mt.Chiliad before reaching you), the first time I did this mission my two friends died and I was the only one. The jet is really slow but still fast and I wasn't ready for a fight with a jet. When he missed with his rocket and passed me, I followed him as fast as I could and took him down with the machine guns as is to date my favorite air fight. It wouldn't be as impressive if it had explosive rounds that could kill it in 3-4 shots but change the jet for a normal speed one controlled by someone who isn't a complete idiot (seriously, who let that guy in the mission pilot that?!). I'm not quite sure how it would be more effective and on the same level if it had explosive rounds (it may make it overpowered, then) but I'd hate to see it cut. I love that helicopter and yes, I don't use it at all in GTA V, but it's nostalgic to see it. It needs some help is all.

Thanks for the pictures, by the way. Got the Little Bird pic as my desktop background now. :)
Really nice to see the real life part of it and say, "hey, I fly that in GTA".

When I was flying the Annihilator, I remember getting shot by someone else who used a rocket of a buzzard to shoot me down and still surviving, and then annihilating his ass with the minigun. I also remember jumping out of it and I suddenly noticed it was still alive after hitting the ground hard. I also remember winning my first air-race with it against buzzards and froggers.

Anyone who thinks it's useless is a moron.

The Annihilator is a cool chopper for role playing. More of a troop deployment and extraction aircraft. I find it more enjoyable to fly the Annihilator, but I typically use the Buzzard because of its superior speed, since all I normally use helicopters for is getting around the map.

Rockstar should just increase the accuracy and damage of the Annialator's mini guns.

So how much damage do the Annihilator soak up compared to Buzzard?

 

Also, on side note, is it possible to autorotate in GTA? I once landed a chopper with stalling engine, but I'm not sure whether the descent or script kicked in just above the ground.

annihilator was nice in IV, specially when you bumped the tail into a high building or chopped the tail off using other annihilator, the rhing would fall of and the helicopter would simply keep flying while spinning aimlessly til it crash...

 

in V the annihilator would explode with a mere bump on the tail.

It's not useless, it just takes skill to use.

 

Most GTA players prefer to have the game do the work for them, so they use the auto lock rockets on the Buzzard.

which doesn't autolock to anything useful.

in fact I wish they'd remove the autolock all together or at least have an option to turn it off.

Forget the Apache, that's been done loads of times, if they give us a new choppaaaa, gotta be a Comanche (such a shame they cancelled it), or I'd go with a Kamov Ka50 Black Shark.

From wiki: "Like other Kamov helicopters, it features Kamov's characteristic contra-rotating co-axial rotor system, which removes the need for the entire tail rotor assembly and improves the aircraft's aerobatic qualities—it can perform loops, rolls and "the funnel" (circle-strafing), where the aircraft maintains a line-of-sight to the target while flying circles of varying altitude, elevation and airspeed around it. For improved pilot survivability the Ka-50 is fitted with a NPP Zvezda (transl. Star) K-37-800 ejection seat, which is a rare feature for a helicopter.[17] Before the rocket in the ejection seat deploys, the rotor blades are blown away by explosive charges in the rotor disc and the canopy is jettisoned.[18]"

No, leave the Annihilator in. Nerf it's price on Elitas though, so that is reflects is usefulness.

 

$1,825,000? They should be giving these things away.

Also,Annihilator's could use a buff,mounted Guns on the side of it would be awesome!

The annihilator is not useless since you can't be shot out easily by auto aim, and the machine guns are pretty powerful, it's just difficult to be accurate. I can easily 1v1 against buzzards as their missiles San still be dodged. The buzzard is still better against ground vehicles or planes.
