The "flares" create an explosion I've never seen in GTA V. This has me to believe that they are indeed flares.

It's been 1443 days since the Hunter was shown for the first time. Hopefully the wait will be worth it. Buying one as soon as I see it on Warstock.

Watch R f*ck this helicopter up and dripfeed it for 2 months later. I bet it won't even have its agility. Don't even get me started on the armor.

I do hope it does have flares (though they will be behind a research/pay wall most likely) so that it has at least a chance against the Laser and Hydra.

Savage Valkyrie (how dumb I'm sometimes) needs four players to fully operate - so curious about what the Hunter will presume.... gosh, I really hope they'll make at least basic weapons accessible to the pilotseat and leave the option for guns and the maybe comming flares to co-pilot. :panic: wahhhhhh....

Congrats Happy!

 

For your hopes that the Hunter will be customisable, I believe that you'll be relieved. If you look at the P-51/Rustler, in some parts of the trailer it has drop tanks mounted on the wings, and in others it has WWII-era rocket pods mounted, suggestion interchangeable weaponry (pls no research walls). On top of this, the unknown four-engined cargo plane looks to me like it has a custom paint job, as it's chrome below the belly and matte black on the rest.

I reckon that the chain gun below the Hunter will definitely be able to pivot, hopefully by the pilot as in real life the Apache's gun is slaved to the pilot's eye, and follows wherever the pilot looks.

 

Congrats again!

Can't wait for it. :) This helicopter brings me happy memories of playing Nuclear Strike on the old PSX and piloting it in VC and SA, raking in millions and millions of dollars.

 

I even used to doodle this thing in notebooks and pretend I knew how to pilot one, haha. The beautiful aircraft seems like it put on just a tiny bit of weight, but I like the curves.

 

It's going to take every inch of discipline I have to unlock it at a discount via a mission, so I can get properly introduced to it, instead of buying it outright.

 

Tuesday can't come fast enough.

I think this will be a day one release. It's by far the most anticipated of the new vehicles, kinda like the apc was in gunrunning, so releasing it day one R* can get full price on the hangers and goad us into rushing all the research. If they drip feed it a lot of folks won't buy a hanger till it drops, or at least won't rush the research. Remember the price tag was over 10m to rush everything last time, and many will do that to get the full hunter right out of the gate. I probably would if I had the dough.

An honor to be on the first page of this. Well done and I CANT WAIT to see how this baby operates for missions, ceo work and of course....griefing people. :devil:

I hope by griefing you mean punishing those who disturb us. We're keepers of the peace ;).

 

Sometimes you do so much grinding that you just want to "blow off steam" and enjoy what your money has gotten you.

I'm a bit worried. I worry that Rockstar totally butchered the Hunter and didn't do it justice. I guess there's only one way to find out.

True. I can't fault you on that. There's been times in the past where I've sweated missions so much that I'd get my Savage and look for actual trolls to (return) grief. I guess it's kind of like doing the vigilante missions from SA in online.

I don't attack non-attack aircraft or even go after people delivering their stock. I have only blown up one gun running shipment and that was becuase they attacked me first when I had no intentions of bothering them.

I really love this general feeling of excitement and joy after such a long wait. It's honestly heartwarming. :D

Congratulations Hunter. I will gladly help in celebrating hunter Day will all of the needless claps and bangs. Sorry it did not come out with my Christmas wishes for you but hopefully it will have been worth the wait. I hope they make this thing like Blue Thunder. How great would it be if they re-used James Woods voice from San Andreas for the AI system?

Since it seems likely that there will be some level of weapon loadout customization, hopefully we will have some choice over what is pilot or passenger controlled.

 

If it is able to do flips and rolls I may never call Pegasus for a hydra again

If anything this goes to show again that Rockstar Devs do read GTA Forums. But to be fair the Hunter crowd grew bigger and bigger and it was almost on every social media (Reddit, 4chan, Youtube Comments, etc.) it would have been impossible to ignore it.

I remember a month or two ago Happy Hunter felt almost hopeless after gunrunning came out, but here we are with the Apache and So much more. Congrats guys

Well gun running was a perfect opportunity since it was military themed and R* of course couldn't even get that right. Even Heist Update would have been an excellent release for the Hunter.

I'm eager to see the Hunter brought into this game. But I have to ask: what's the source for saying it will be part of this update? It wasn't mentioned in the news release yesterday, and I did not catch any glimpses of it in the video. Granted, I only saw it on an iPad screen and didn't watch it frame by frame, so I could've missed it.

 

I want to believe; I just want to see some evidence.

There's a few more in the OP. Not sure on what time it comes in, the trailer's just under a minute. Maybe 0:20-ish? But I don't really remember.

 

I'll dig the trailer out.

 

Edit: Around 0:14 - 0:18. Blink and you'll miss it.
