i got 1.5 million to go for a hydra, is it worth it?

 

Or should I just buy a tank? Is the protection awesome?

 

Keep in mind I have the insurgent with the gunner already

Tank has low armor and the insurgent has way better armor then a tank

Whether it's players with explosives or cops flooring their cruisers into you, you'll get blown up fast in the Rhino, and the Hydra isn't worth the $3m pricetag if you are tight on money.

Just get either the $1.75m Buzzard or $1.95m Savage instead of the Rhino or Hydra, either one of those would be a much better investment.

Interesting, just flew a buzzard too.

 

What about that? Good choice? Or just the hydra instead?

The tank can't fly.

Get the Hydra.

I still like taking my tank out for a spin in gang wars and just plain being a menace to police. On the bright side, if a player does come along you have plenty of time to go passive and walk away unscathed.

Buzzard for missions is ok, in free roam you will get rekt by the horning launcher or other better aircraft though.

Savage is good for missions. Tank isn't really good for much anymore unless you're just going after a couple cheap kills in free mode. Hydra is good for taking out tanks and getting around the map quickly but only spawns at airports which is annoying.

The Hydra costs 3 million, not 1.5.

He didn't say it cost $1.5 million, he said he needs $1.5 million more until he can buy the Hydra.

this cant be a serious question lol

Obviously I know which is better but I meant it as should I just spend my cash now on the rhino or wait for the hydra.

If its one or the other wait for the Hydra. The Rhino is more or less useless anymore. It's fun to blow stuff up with, but its armor is unrealistically flimsy now and more importantly has very few spawn points and is very slow, so it's a pain in the ass to call for. Any usefulness it may have in being able to fire at people is negated by how long it takes you to retrieve it and drive it to the target.

At least once you get the Hydra from an airfield you can fly quickly to where you want to go. I own both and I wish I could sell the Rhino.

Don't buy the tank.

 

The tank was epic a year and a half ago, now it's just as vulnerable as a car with a cannon.

 

The hydra is the better choice. Even though the lazer is significantly better in terms of handling and agility (which matters a lot when you're trying to dodge nonstop rockets and buildings.)

I feel if I get the savage it would get shot down pretty quick and it's not as easy to navigate as the buzzard as far as getting a heli goes

I bought the Savage and meh, it probably just takes a lot of getting used to because I consider myself a pretty good pilot and even I'm still wrecking this whale of a chopper trying to fly around and terrorize people.

 

It's extremely heavy and handles like a brick.. drops like a brick too when you try to drop altitude and end up just crashing into the ground. Has less armor than your average car, 3 bullets can blow this thing up. The only obvious good point about it is the weapons equipped on it are beastly, explosive cannons and endless rockets with no cooldown. It's too bad when flying around you can't dip the nose further than ~30degrees making so you have swing back and forth to be able to hit anything on the ground, which in turn makes you drop like a rock and the weight makes it really hard to recover usually ending in your death.

 

 

I probably would've bought the Hydra instead if it didn't only spawn at airstrips. Being that it has VTOL I find it ridiculously stupid it doesn't spawn at heli pads, probably would've been a selling point for me but considering there's only 3 aistrips within 20+sq miles and two being within a mile of one another I found this useless. Really how hard would it have been to put a little dirt airstrip north of Chilliad?

I would buy the hydra over the rhino tank anyday. I have both and really the only time I used the rhino was to play "blow up 2" back when I was a lvl 80 for the rp grind. The hydra is much more versatile. The Hydra I've used it in dozens of mission. It works great in "the los santos connection" or "trash talk" missions

Sorry for the resurrection bump, but I didn't want to create another topic.

 

I've got a buzzard, currently. I'm looking to buy a new attack vehicle, which ones have been nerfed/buffed and which is worth the price tag as of 2016? Do I even need something else if I already have a buzzard?

What do you like to do?

 

To me, tank is too slow and since it's armor was down graded while homing missiles and RPG's were added to the game (and a tank icon appears on the map), the tank is pretty useless. I love playing with it in missions, but don't bother bringing it out in FM any longer. So back to my original question, what do you like to do?
