Yes! The Hunter, finally! Loved it so much in SA, better not dissapoint.

I now sexually identify as an attack helicopter. Respect my right to kill from above, heliphobes.

You're right about flares!

 

Watch the last gif you posted, the missle going towards the Hunter changes direction completely and hits the ground!

 

So cool!

Sh*t - I didn't notice that myself actually. I thought that was a separate missile, and that the one heading towards it just went out of the shot. But following more closely, it does look like it turns and hits the ground.

 

That'll be incredible if it can do that.

 

Whatever happens, it's a Hunter anyway. I love it and will buy it as soon as I can.

So stoked for this. The fact that it's here at all satisfies me so far. The thought of counter measures or new missile options in a chopper is just a bonus at this point.

This is definitely the first thing i will save up money for in this new DLC, everything else can wait, no matter the cost. Hunter was pure destruction in SA, hoping for the same here.

Agreed. I just put the speculation in to pass the time, fill it out a little while these painful days go by.

 

Honestly, even if it's very bog standard, it's still amazing just to see it finally here.

This is trivial at best, hell it might even add to our lords rugged good looks.

 

I really hope the landing gear is retractable.

GREAT! Now that the Hunter is finally coming, here's hoping we get a Flamethrower eventually!

 

C'MON R*! I WANT MY FLAMETHROWER! And if you don't give me it, I'll start a thread about in the forums and continue asking for it for 3 straight years until you guys eventually add it

I have chased rumors of the Hunter around the internet for a long time, only to be disappointed when they turned out to be just that. I was again disappointed that gunrunning brought us no new aircraft, but still, I hoped. When I saw Yan's post last week I wanted to believe, but did not want to be let down again.

 

But today is the day! Well, Tuesday is the day, but you get the point. Perhaps the rhythmic thump of rotor blades will become a feared sound once again in Los Santos. It is almost here, please don't f*ck it up Rockstar.

I think the gun is going to be a gunner weapon. Notice how the cockpit screenshot is on the real pilot seat (as opposed to VC's "sit on the co-pilot seat and one-man the thing") and another person on the co-pilot seat.

 

Hopefully they'll leave the missiles and rockets to the pilot though. Having no weapons isn't fun and operating all weapons is going to overwhelm the gunner. And there's also hoping that it's at least Cargobob-tough.

Ever since i saw the trailer and the claim of victory on the petition thread, i have been buzzing all day. Awesome thing to wake up to and about damn time chopper lovers and aircraft enthusiasts in general got some love.

 

You'll never get me out of our beloved Hunter! Ever! Hehe.

I'd be fine if it was like the Buzzard or Savage where the co-pilot can control the cannon pressing right on the D-Pad(or whatever it is on PC).

 

I'm just hoping the pilot has machine guns AND missiles like the other aircrafts. The cannon being co-pilot exclusive like the Valkyrie.

 

Also hoping it's customizable down to the paint. I'd love to see it in Pure Black or even a gold I have. Gotta rep my boy Yusuf!

 

Guess we'll find out!

I think the best case scenario is that even a lone pilot can use and aim the cannon by moving the camera (though a co-pilot could take over, since they'd be able to zoom in, concentrate better, etc.).

 

Second best - a solo pilot can use everything, but the gun is fixed in place (would need a co-pilot to aim/pivot it).

 

Worst is like, everything needs another player. That's got to be unlikely though.

 

At the very least, at least give us the missiles or something.

 

I think they're gonna deliver well with this though. I mean, they've listened to so much it looks like - seems like they know our complaints.

I've watched the trailer like 50 times..actually, I've honestly lost count. I can't say the same for any other trailer they've posted.

 

and yeah, I'm ultra curious how some of the new helicopters will handle.. Hopefully they're all different. I would be more than happy if we could take stabilization off of helicopters.

I do hope the Hunter ends up being everything we wished the Savage could be. (Minus the useless troop-carrying gimmick)

Well to be fair it wouldn't be as much of a gimmick if I wasn't such a lone wolf lol - would be quite good picking people up and dropping them off, putting snipers on rooftops, etc.

 

But yeah, I hope it's more like what we wanted the Savage to be. i.e. Not made of paper, and not with a tiny range, etc.

I call it a gimmick because despite its spacious compartment, it carries only 2 passengers like the Buzzard.

 

I mean yes, the Hind is incapable of carrying troops and a full weapon load, but it also isn't made of paper.

Oh yeah in that way absolutely.

 

Given its armour it should hold the full 8 in my opinion. Even buffed, should at least be 4-6 in the back.

I've been thinking about how the Hunter will fare against everything else currently fighting for dominance, and it occurred to me that R* likes power creep, AKA making new vehicles stronger so that they are more enticing to buy, thus increasing shark card sales. If they also apply this to the Hunter, I can see it giving Hydras second thoughts... :D

It's fantastic news that this thread could finally be made! We have achieved victory!

 

I'm just hoping that the Hunter isn't a letdown, but with the strength of the Gunrunning vehicles, I'm sure it'll be able to take a fair bit of damage.

Can't wait to try this in contact missions like The Los Santos Connection.
