How often do you call for a Hydra?

Hydra Request Topic

  1. 1. How often do you call for a Hydra?

    • All the time. I rule the map, basically.
    • Regularly, but not all the time. I own it and can use it whenever I want.
    • Rarely, and only use it when I really feel the need.
    • Never. Don't like it, own it, want it, etc...

Rockstar gave us this weapon to use at our discretion. There's no right or wrong in it, just my curiosity about why people use it?

 

I call for my jet rarely. Sometimes to get across the map quickly, other times to take on a specific player who's bothering me. I never call my jet just to reign over the lobby (not that skilled anyway).

 

What do you think?

Sometimes to get across the map quickly,

 

That's about the only time i use it tbh, i find the game to be far more fun on the ground.

calling hydra and me?! I would never. I do it often just to grief assholes that's in the hydra already and go after VIP's and 8000+ and up pricks.

My hydra is in my arsenal for one reason: to take out of control sky pussies down as and when necessary.

No Use For A Name

When I need to travel somewhere fast

During missions

Criminal damage

 

And if I'm by the marina, I'll call for it and then place a proxy or sticky on it. The sticky method is great - people get excited cause hey, free hydra! Then BOOM

I call it up when there's another jet, or there's a group of players trying to gang up on me.

 

It's the perfect equalizer, in that regard.

 

Which is why people who play with big teams tend to hate it lol.

I literally only use it if I'm near a helipad and need to go somewhere fast, otherwise I use the besra.

 

I also pull it out for people that are in jets too, but they usually take care of themselves.

Wherever possible, I usually prefer to use my beloved helicopters though:

A jet's more for when I really can't be bothered, and I'm up against stupid odds that a helicopter just won't cut through.

I used it all the time as a means of travel. It's the fastest vehicle for covering long distances.

I pretty much only use it when I need to travel a long distance quickly.

Once per session (which is usually enough to grief endlessly). When I get shot down, I pack up and leave the board, my way of saying "you beat me, no more harvesting on this board."

I don't have it.I've only done the first heist and part of the second one (to unlock Casco),since I don't know enough people who play GTA on PS4,and playing with randoms is hard.But to be honest,I don't really need it,I always play in invite only.

I use it only when I need to get from downtown to paleto bay or sandy shores really fast.

I bought it because GTA SA, and because I am a flight sim fan.

 

But I actually don't love flying the fast jets in GTA 5 as much as I had thought I would, I feel like they make the map painfully small.

 

I feel much more immersed in a prop plane or a helicopter.

Very often on missions. Probably never on public freeroam. Semi-often on private lobby, to do vip thingies, with friends or solo.

im gonna be honest, i love hydra love to kill with it.. been in the bad sport for using hydra but im smarter now than that..

but at least.. im a decent enemy on my foot as well (when im not drunk hehe).. and when a hydra attacks me while im on my foot i try to fight with that.. (wouldnt drive a fancy car with neons and blue lights tough) so im not a hydra "pussy" or whatever some people would say.. some guys just dont like that others are good at flying a hydra while they're suck at it.. so.. i dont mind jet griefers.. come to my session try to kill me ill keep my hands on the record button because i will eventually hit you with my rpg...

I use it all the time in contact missions, and when I get bored i'll whip it out in free roam and just start blowing sh*t up and p*ssing off the lobby.

When I log one it's 3 or 4 times solo. More frequently when I'm in party chat. Some days I get over 30 kills and others I crash frequently and yesterday was one of those days. Probably because I hardly play these days.

I use it regularly to counter the people who use it all the time. Its great joining a lobby and seeing 3 jet icons on the map and thinking challenge accepted. Then I turn on game chat and hope they aren't in a party and I take them all down in hope of hearing them complain.

I use it for many free mode events. I use it all the time for VIP work like hostile takeover, sightseer and executive search(when I'm trying to kill VIP). Use it in missions, with good use of hover mode and canon, its superior to the savage and buzzard IMO. When I get in a game and I see 2-4 players with bounty I go in the hydra and claim them. I use it a lot, but when I use it its to win an objective. The only time that I use it only to kill a random guy its because he killed me for no reason while I was doing my things or on players with modded account.

I use it to go to Zancudo and get a Lazer. I rarely use it to grief

So when you're on foot, all you've got is RPGs? Haha, you're literally the stereotypical sky puss. Except...you forgot to tell us the part that when you're shot down, or another jet enters the sky, you go passive ;)
