Defending Yourself From Aircraft In GTA V

Title:

 

Defending Yourself From Aircraft In GTA V

 

Description:

 

What do you guys do to defend yourself from people in armed aircraft?

 

I had another post on here titled: Homing Launchers Guidance System Could Be Improved. I meant to explain my situation more in that post and what I meant but I didn't (lol).

 

Sometimes I have trouble getting away from jets (without going into apartment/passive) and i'd like to see if they're some tricks in the book that I don't know. I put together a video on this subject on Youtube as well after my previous post to see if anyone on there can come up with anything (https://youtu.be/57CtBLSV1NE). So without going into an apartment or using passive mode, how do you guys recommend me and my buddies get away/take down jets?

 

I appreciate any and all replies

 

Thank you!

Get between very tall buildings it makes it difficult to do bombing runs.

 

If you can use freeways or underpasses or anything with overhead cover to your advantage as well only come out when they're flying away from you

 

Use the heavy sniper and land at least 5 to 10 shots to make them smoke then you can just wait it out or keep shooting

 

Go off radar and go and get a jet yourself to take them out

 

Send them a text message and hopefully they get too aggressive and crash

 

Yacht defenses will allow you to snipe all day long so there's that option too

stonedpimpso is right - learn the city and you can get around most of it without much concern, and most pilots will either crash or move on (most crash).

You could always use the tunnel system from the jewelry store job in single player. Of course you can't always get there so the best thing you can do is what's been said, take cover between tall buildings and in alley ways.

 

 

If they're still nailing you after that then f*cking bail on the session.

Multi-storey car parks. Snipe a bit, hide, snipe, hide. Off the radar, drive to another car park. That sort of thing.

There is this little option, Which is extremly hard to find. like 99.9% of all GTA:O players do not know of its existence. Its the cause of a lot of bitching and moaning.

 

Its called 'PASSIVE MODE' activate it and they can't hurt you in any way possible. If you don't like that, you deserve to get griefed.

Either that or you can stand on one of the boats to snipe but it's very risky.

 

There is another silly option too but it's long winded and could possibly be a waste of time. Cargobob a Turret vehicle and also have that on your Yacht while defenses are on but the likelihood of that being shot down on the way if noticed is high.

Its called..... Passive mode. Use it and see how pissed off jet pussies get. Its hilarious the mail you will get cause on foot jet bishes get wrecked. Have yet to meet one om the street that could hold their own. In a jet they think they are gods though.

There are like 8 entrances to that. The one from the heist. Three in the big storm drain (though two basically go to the same place), and any other subway rail that leads under ground.

 

Also. Find the mines. If someone kills you in the mines, you're either retarded, or they're hacking.

as someone who is skilled with a jet, i tell you to run sideways like you would a train when we nose forward for the strafe. If you are fast enough sometimes the pilot will screw himself by coming in too fast to escape a homing missile launch and end up crashing either sideways trying to hit you, or will have to double back.

I like it! I'm going to have to try that some time.

 

With off radar and VIP's ghost organization, you could have 3 minutes off radar - that might be enough.

 

Would probably be better to prepare it beforehand though, or have some friends set it up.

So long as you have a decent overhang a Jet can't kill you then it's just being very patient. Only come out to fire the marksman. Heavy sniper or mini gun as he's flying away from you or out of cannon range. So long as you do that he can't win and you can't lose so long as you take your time.

The Wandering Hunter

the easiest way is to leave or go passive

 

or you could hide somewhere doing f*ck all

1) If out in the open desert/forest areas, go off the radar and move to a more sheltered area. Use surrounding features to give you the upper hand. The windmill farm for example pretty much prevents jets from dive bombing you, even if it leaves you quite exposed.

 

2) If in the city, use whatever shelter you can find. The CBD gives the best protection due to numerous obstacles they have to deal with.

 

3) Once sheltered, use your heavy sniper to damage their jet. 2 or 3 hits will begin to cripple it. If they get close enough, use the minigun which can disable a jet within seconds.

 

4) Use your homing launcher. Even if you can't lock on, they will take steps to avoid being locked onto. If you do get a locked shot off, use step 3 whilst they try and evade it.

 

5) If you have a yacht, it is the perfect place to protect your self from jets whilst still being able to fight back. Take advantage of turning on/off yacht defences, uses steps 2 and 3 when you get a chance.

 

6) If all else fails, go into passive mode. Jets will generally ignore you once they know they cannot kill you.
