What am I supposed to do with a Hydra which I've accidentally bought?


Recommended Posts

I tried to get a better look at the pre-discount price, but I accidentally clicked on the price tab and *poof*, the game removed nearly 3 million from my account without asking for a confirmation, and now I've ended up with a Hydra which I can't sell anyway.


Now what am I supposed to do with an old jet? I don't hunt and kill randoms, so griefing is not possible. Is there any other use to a Hydra other than flying across the map? Can I use it any Gunrunning , CEO, I/E or VIP missions?

It's good for Headhunter and Sightseer VIP stuff. I can't confirm or deny its usefulness with the other activities (I live a ​boring​ sheltered existence online).

But you will be thanked for using it if you're helping friends / team-mates in a defensive role whilst they are doing collections etc.

Start with Headhunter and I bet once you get good you'll be tempted to try it on players ;)

Actually it's not as useful after the Gunrunning update though since it's a big target and almost everyone has explosive sniper ammo now. It's a great addition to your arsenal though and it definitely has it's moments, like protecting sale jobs for example.

Useful in GR supply runs, eg kill the trucks, kill the choppers, kill the enemy stores, and so on. Park it outside your bunker and it stays there. Does paint a bit of a target on your back though.


Best thing to master early is fast landings - fly in around 1000ft to directly over landing zone, aim straight down (no throttle), transition to VTOL at the right moment* throttle up, and end up stationary exactly where you want to be. Flying high (cloud level) is also the easiest way to avoid any drama from the ground.


* Too early and you'll be a little high, too late and you'll be a little puddle :D
