Is the buzzard worth it?

So I have 3.6 mill, a Zentorno, a faggio, a besra, 2 houses, all the cars I really need, but no helicopter. I was thinking if it's a sensible investment to get a buzzard I'll do it but what do you guys think? Do you use yours daily? Do you regret it? Should I wait until I have more money?

The buzzard is a good helicopter for bugging out with the bare necessities for a good offense/defense. I fly mine almost all the time. It may be nimble, but that evil little bastard does the job when you want it done :)

Eventually it will pay for itself with the money saved in not having to buy ammo during missions. With the payouts being based on time spent playing the mission, we tend to use it less, but it's still an indispensable asset on some missions like The Los Santos Connection and Chemical Extraction.

It's the only aircraft that's actually worth it

 

Basically.

 

It's your money and you should spend it how you want, but in my opinion Buzzard > Bestra.

Besra is cool but that's it. It won't be of much strategic use in a mission

 

In online free roam, many aircraft spawn without the need to purchase

 

Purchasing a vehicle mainly makes sense if you plan on needing it in a mission.

 

The besra is fun to fly, but is it armed and capable of carrying 4 people?! Many missions become a piece of cake once you have a buzzard.

It's well worth it.

You can get Trash Talk and that Jury mission done without firing a single bullet from a gun with it, along with other missions.

Plus it's great to use to snatch up Lester's assassination targets, it'll lock on to them.

You say "it may be nimble" like it's a bad thing.

When is English not weird?

Get a Buzzard. It is handy for almost all missions.

Absolutely worth every penny. Pays for itself in no time doing missions in it - saves you heaps of cash in ammo costs. Even with the new payment system it is worth it in missions.

 

Handy in free roam too. It does make you a target at times and easy enough to be shot out of, but use wisely and it pays - for example those Lester kill targets. I like to wait about in my buzzard till one comes up, then off I go.

 

I don't regret buying it one little bit. I highly recommend it.

The Buzzard will add replay value to many missions as missions can be played with different tactics and often no ammo cost. Missions like Artificial Scarcity,Blowup 1&3, and Judging The Jury.

 

What i don't like about the Buzzard is wobbly flight, drop off locations,and it is a bit fragile.

 

How much value is dependant on the user. $1,750,000 is a lot for anything that sits and not used and also can not be sold or traded like cars and property can.

There has not been a day ive regretted buying mine, plus its paid for itself 5 times by now. Id also recommend the classic swift, I love to use that in free roam

It is definitely worth it trust me. I just wish they could bring out the cargobob in the cache and carry so i can use it for trolling squeakers.

You have the money and it serves a purpose. Why and how is this a question? You buy the trainer jet but question the validity of one of the most powerful weapons in the game. The Buzzard serves more purpose than anything you own, it would be the wisest purchase out of all you have made.

I never really see the point in buying one, they always spawn for me and I can just steal it. Not such a smart investment me thinks, when you consider the amount of sh*t in DLC that is so expensive.

If you have a Faggio, you don't need anything else.

If you do missions, buzzard is the number 1 thing you should have. Before buying anything else in this game. It was my third purchase in this game after a garage and car when I could finally buy it.

Didn't think my comment about it being nimble came out like that lol. Can't really show emphasis through typing. I meant is the only downside is that the pilot is vulnerable to fire. (same goes with every helicopter, but the large bubble cockpit is a cheap shot for ground targets.) sorry about that

Its a daily/hourly use. Best investment I've made.

Yeah it's a good idea to have one :-) - I keep telling myself to buy one too, but I keep not getting around to it.
