Caved in and wasted some money on it. I can see why they didn't add this thing into the game when it first came out!

zctn6Ka.jpgStill has some kinks to work out in the physics...

Where do you store and modify it?

 

Is there a special slot in the facility (like for the Anti-Aircraft Trailer in the bunker)?

Only stored in the Facility in its own slot. Modified by pressing right on the D-pad

 

Does this thing have a limited number of rockets?

 

Oh, and its horsesh*t that you get charged $20k when some asshole shoots you down with a non-explosive weapon

Me personally I enjoy it. But it doesn't come without drawbacks.

 

Pro-

 

-A freaking jetpack baby whoo!

- It is a personal vehicle so it can store in personal garage

-Its has decent agility and speed. Its not the best but it does have enough speed to dodge some homing missiles

-You can almost look straight down in it to hit people directly below you

- Boost makes some satisfying quick getaways

- Easy to use

 

Cons

- Crappy machine guns(nothing new). Dont buy them

-Could just say its a buzzard with no body and countermeasures

- 4 million dollar price

-Hard to compete against top tier vechiles like Ruiners,Vigilantes,Hydras,etc. Requires alot of skill

-Cant spawn through ceo

- If a player shoots you out of your jetpack and your thruster falls then explodes...your stuck with the 20k bill

Probably best in its appreciation thread.

 

Despite having only 30 standard missiles, it is very fast and versatile.

 

I would recommend not spending 200k on the JATO system as you can ascend in pretty much the same time.

 

All in all, I personally love it!

I'm Stunned at how much people are NOT talking about this jet pack but I guess we're all too busy flying it lol. I can't wait to buy it but I'll wait for the trade price.

I just can't afford it lol.

 

My sleeping's all f*cked, and with different time zones that meant I didn't get to do any heists yet. Can't justify buying stuff without the trade prices. Even if I did, I'd only afford like, one vehicle.

 

I made an exception for the Akula though of course.

 

Akula deserves it. It's the most useful vehicle from this update. What a treat!

So are the JATO and EMS upgrades beneficial?

JATO throws you in the air fast when grounded and the EMS helps against lock ons missiles but when a dude got a trusty old rifle you as dead as johnny klebitz

I posted another topic about this but it seems to have fallen away so I will ask here.

Be honest, is the Jetpack with missiles worth it? At both prices?

My common sense tells me to buy the Akula or Deluxo and its right but I really wanna buy the Jetpack because its a bloody Jetpack!

I do most of my stuff Solo or with a single friend, I might have a group of people now and again but most of the time they jump in their own stuff and rocket off.

In all honesty, the jetpack is sh*te.

 

1. fire a few missles PAUSE fire more missiles

2. If someone shoots you out of the jetpack, you pay the money if destroyed.

3. Upgrades are not worth a wank, 400k I spent for sh*tty missiles and a useless JATO.

4. Crash into anything and I mean ANYTHING, the jetpack is smoking about to explode.

5. You can't repair the jetpack anywhere but your facility so if you're on holiday down in los santos beach and you suddenly clip the sand, expect a long drawn trip back home with your tail between your legs.

 

Go for the Deluxo, it's sexy, vintage lookin interior, ruggered engine note with a nice turbo pull. It hovers, flies and you can be very acrobatic in the air dodging missiles engaging and disengaging the hover/flying modes.

So with this thing, is it like some other aircraft where the Engine Stages only increase your rate of ascent?

Anyone wall breach under the map with it? Could find some interesting things with it

 

Not to camp out and troll people with cheap kills. But to actually explore

Bought it, love it. Engine upgrades do make you go faster forward too ( not just ascent). Love it for just tooling around and can land on any small flat surface. So of course you can land on your yacht-no helipad needed. There's no view blockers in front of you when looking forward in first person. I'm surprised nobody really ever shows first person views when doing reviews of vehicles. Personally I love that about this vehicle. Can call it in by your Mechanic too which is useful.

So isn't there supposed to be a "strafe" combat mode?

 

Only thing I can think of is when stands are down as opposed to up when clicking L3.

 

Seems as though controls are the same though.

 

This is my new go to for MC sell missions now. Since they took away PV AC spawns with the CM accept/cancel trick. Seems quicker point A to B then my Deluxo.

f*ck it!

I did it, I bought one. And I regret nothing!

Apart from the price how can anyone not like this? Its insanely quick, agile, can have missile pods fitted, flares and you can fit it in the tightest of places.

Yes, its sh*t in combat but why would you be in combat in a Jetpack?

Don't have an issue with the handling.

Just think of it as a man sized helicopter and work from that.

Why are people complaining its bad in combat? I don't see this as a bad thing at all since it's not really supposed to be a combat tool. I feel like it only has the rockets for protection and the flares only add to this theory, since its such an easy target.

 

It's meant for fun. Not a trolling/fighting tool. Use it right.

I don't require every vehicle to be a top performing combat machine. That being said, this is an effective weapon and it should amazingly fun to use. You can really explore everything with it, and fly through gaps and tunnels for fun. The two paint colors and ability to add livery really makes it fun too. I foresee myself using this a lot in the future

It breaks like it's made of plastic


Good for taking photos though

Fun glitch is to crash this thing so it stops working and then call for a new car without getting out of the Jetpack.

You'll teleport around a little bit and then be informed the mechanic can't bring your car

If it works like a helicopter (and I've heard a few other people say it does too) then it hsould be just fine for me.

 

I don't really need it for fighting anyway. For fighting I'd just bring my Hunter or Akula or any of the other things that are built for that. This for me is a fun toy, and something to get around in. Should be great for getting on rooftops too.

 

I'm just waiting on the trade price for it, then I'll buy one.
