Insurgent or Hydra?

Which should I buy? Got $2m, should I save for the Hydra or buy the insurgent? If Insurgent, which one?

I will go with Hydra, even though I'm probably part of the minority.

 

It's more or less on par with the Lazer (in the hands of normal pilots)

fastest vehicle in the game

can be used in missions

explosive cannon and missiles

survives a missile impact

hover and conventional flight

 

The only downside is the pricetag and it only spawns at airports... But that's it, really

The hydra is the great equalizer. Even if you're not good at killing with it, being in the air (even in passive) is a great deterrent to the most powerful vehicles in the game.

Bit of a strange either or as they are in no way similar. Do you really like flying? Because if you gonna save and spend $3m you ought to .

The SUV Insurgent is cheaper, tough as nails, can store it in your garage and you can use it anywhere at any time.

Valkyrie is death to all insurgents if you have a friend but the Hydra is ruler of GTA at the moment. The insurgent is a troll weapon for ground noobs. Better to enjoy the peaceful sky's.

Insurgent, not the one with the gun.its tough like a tank, can take a few rpg hits, mows everything out of your way.

I say buy the Insurgent.
At least that takes me 2 tries to blow it up.

Do you like flying, a lot ? If so the Hydra is a great buy, fast, useful and powerful, and the Insurgent is the best, and it's not super expensive, I'll advice buying both either one will probably make you earn money in missions efficiently. And buy the regular Insurgent because it's a PV

If you're only getting one or the other, the Insurgent is probably more useful overall...but the Hydra is a major ass-kicker.

I personally would pick the Insurgent. I'm still having issues with firing the weapons on the Hydra. Still haven't been able to figure it out.

if you like flying go for the hydra.

 

the insurgent have more use, since it can be used in freeroam, missions, heist.

 

plus, the insurgent wont get you a easy pass into bad sport!

Save up for the Hydra. Come on, is it really that hard of a decision? It's the only fighter jet with weapons that you can own, no need to go to that stupid military base, breaking in, stealing it, flying it all the way back to the city, PAIN IN THE ASS.

 

It's a no brainer.

Owning the hydra I would say the following:

 

-only spawns at airports

-takes a bit of getting used to using the hover mode.

-costs you a fortune in insurance claims in free roam

 

But

 

Firepower is epic, fast, usable in missions. Fave one is denial of service. Takes 5 minutes to rinse the whole map.

 

That being said

 

Wish I'd bought the savage and had 1.2 million spare but I haven't unlocked it yet

My biggest regret in this game is buying the armed insurgent. I can't even imagine how immense the buyer's remorse would be for the hydra.

I say buy the Insurgent. Its just plain awesome, drives through the retarded AI as if its made out of cake, and its strong as hell.

Don't worry about the savage honestly, it's big heavy and it's cannon has the range of a knife. Money for money the buzzard is more potent, far more actually.

 

All you need from heists is a PV insurgent, hydra and if you don't own a carbo then the Kuruma adds similar mission safety. If you have a regular friend the Valkyrie is the most bad ass thing in the game (unless a hydra shoots you down). But the cannon on the Valkyrie has sniper like range with a zoomed camera and can shoot straight down below the chopper. It makes it more or less invincible in free roam against ground targets if the pilot is aware of the surroundings. But yeah the cannon on that thing is like an explosive surgeons scapel.

Insurgent pick up with the gun is the most fun vehicle to use in the game.

 

I have both the Hydra and Insurgent, the one you put in your garage isn't very good as its easy to get shot out of unless you're in free aim.

PV insurgent.

 

All air vehicles are useless as long as someone has a homing launcher

Hey guys, why is the PV Insurgent so much better / preferred to Pegasus' Armed Insurgent?

Because its a 'Personal vehicle' So you can use it in missions and ppl pay 16K insurance if they do blow you up after countless RPG's.

 

 

Mine all have 100% armour modded on them. Instead of taking like 5 rpg's to the face, these take about 10+ rpg's to destroy when i'm driving it around LS.

All with stock collored rims in the exact same collors as they come when you order the Pegasus armed Insurgent.

Never thought I would ever care for a hydra, never really been keen on killing up in the air but after playing the emp set up serval times I really liked the hover mode on it and how it maneuvered so I ended up saving for one and the first free roam outing I took it out on I got 10 kills within 5 minutes 4 of em were bounties, needless to say it's become my new favorite piece of equipment! Discovering I'm actually good with a jet makes this game a whole lot more fun (:

Insurgent. It's more fun and can go through a LOT of explosives before blowing up. You can even ram through parked planes or helis people are in and get a kill.

 

You can ram into gas pumps if somebody stupidly went AFK by one too. :)
