The official JET thread.

Anyone who flies around in a jet is a coward who is skeered of mixing it up on the ground.

I only go after jet morons and those people who enjoy f*cking up a lobby picking on sub rank 40's all day.

* The two I killed in the video I posted spent a good 2 hours turning the airport area into GTA IV's airport...

Ah, good times. I remember being in a Buzzard, spamming rockets all the time, not letting anyone take off.

Lol I suck with the hydra. Can't use the cannons for sh*t, and crash all the time.

 

The most I could "grief" would be blindfiring cannons in their general direction and wasting their HL ammo.

 

How to hydra?

What makes this 'official'? Is there an inofficial thread for this topic?

ok I hereby dub this thread official. It's official, the threads official.

 

Thanks Lamar.

 

On another note - I recommend watching some of "Tonksi's" videos on YouTube. Sadly, he's inactive but there is some good footage on his channel which includes tips for fighting jets but also challenges and reviews of aircrafts.

 

I've seen some of his videos. They're definitely helpful.

 

For months I couldn't figure out why my cannon shots kept missing on moving player vehicles. He explained in one of the videos to try aiming the cannon ahead where the car is going to be in a few seconds because the explosions happen later and lag. Ever since then I've been actually able to kill a lot of players with the jet.

Anyone who flies around in a jet is a coward who is skeered of mixing it up on the ground.

or maybe they are players that got tired of ownining people on the ground and now take the jet as a way to mix thing up.

 

in my case i have well over 45k player kills, i had around 43.4k when i got into the jet a couple months ago.

 

i was getting bored of fighting on the ground when a friend named TrickStar, a professional jet griefer, gave me a couple tips and tricks, i started to practice and have been improving a lot.

 

i used to hate the jets because, just like many, i was under the impression that spraying a area with the cannon was a piece of cake, boy i was so wrong.

 

it actually takes time and practice to get good at killing ground targets with out crashing or getting blown by homing missiles every minute.

 

jet griefing is love, jet griefing is life!

I've been shot out of my jet once. Only because I was in VTOL mode and had a wanted level.

 

I normally fly in passive (that's when I feel like playing this game and not other games) and only engage when being provoked by a Lazer or Buzzard (lol). They end up getting rekt.

 

Getting sniped in a jet in jet mode at high speed however I find impossible, especially doing moves. Got a video related to jet sniping. Not GTA though

 

 

 

I'd hate to have that happening in GTAO :p

Altitude determines your Latitude. Use your rudders in alternating directions to confuse puruing jets. Lead the target with the cannons . If you are in a hydra make use of the VTOL to execute quick turns.

The Hydra is for noobs. It's all about the Lazer.

 

 

The Hydra is generally enough against the average jet noobs in a public session, even if the noob in question is flying a Lazer.

 

Against anyone semi-competent though, I'd wholeheartedly recommend the Lazer.

I'm quite proud of the fact that I can land a 747 at the Sandy Shores airstrip.

 

The secret is a long, straight. low approach and to remember to retard engines well before landing, rather than smashing onto the runway.

Come back when you managed to land at Grapeseed landing strip.

Today i watched some videos of people flying backwards ect in jets and tried practicing in the air race creator but i cant get the jet to slide backwards into a knife edge it just slides back then drops the nose and goes forward. I did get the hand of reverse takeoff and "hovering" (not hydra hover flying veeerry slowly)

True, remember the mission Minor Turbulence? Trevor said that he was going to land the cargo plane on Mckenzie field, like how ?

 

Anyway on topic, don't forget about the Besra ! I always wanted to try formation flying with other players, that would be awesome

RnG is "Run and Gun". Pretty much no cover at all and using the combat roll.

Tip: when in a firefight, USE GUNS. People just avoid missiles so easily these days...
