Ended up with a nice night scheme

 

xq3c9bh.png

 

Having been playing policeman in it, no Hydras for you, ghosting behind I/E runs to protect them, that sort of thing. And obviously pooping death on tryhards.

That's very similar to the first color I made mine. Looks good.

 

I really like playing anti-griefer, too. Been a few times where the driver saw me and freaked thinking I was gonna waste him and ending up crashing their cars. LOL.

 

Another favorite is bounties.

When is this going on sale? I want one but don't want to drop 2.7 mil on one.

In all honesty I probably will just buy it but if anyone knows of a sale date i'll be very happy. lol

 

Also:

 

When the Akula is in stealth mode, Can people still lock on to you with Buzzard, RPG, Hydra, etc?

I don't really understand the people we try to protect. 50% chance of them trying to shoot us down but going horribly wrong on their end.

 

Example, few months ago, a guy tried to shoot me down after I escorted him and his car. I left the area. He then hired associates to make a sale and I destroyed it as a "karma" lesson. He then had the nerve to get mad at ME, the dude who was trying to protect him only to shoot at ME. (Rarely destroy peoples sh*t tbh though so I felt bad at the same time)

 

This was long before the Akula, I was in a Lazer.

Worth it even not on sale IMO.

 

Yes. Yes they can.

Lol. Good one.

Thanks.

 

Now with the Akula though, I like to be stealth and just observe the map. I enjoy flying as close to the ground as possible through a war zone too. Probably makes people say "what the f*ck?" when I fly by.

 

I've only had one good experience helping a random worth mentioning though.

 

Someone asked to put a bounty on me to hide the vehicle icon when I took it off, I promptly agreed and gave them money back plus interest from an event.

 

Pretty much had a truce after that.

 

They would occasionally hire me to do Headhunter and I'd retire. It was less suspicious that way, cause if they saw two but only one coloured blip, no one would try to really mess with them or they'd stalk to find the Akula pilots(that's what I would do).

 

We never even added each other after either, just went our seperate ways. :lol:

I often ask randoms for help selling and i often get help.

 

I would never destroy someones cargo though.

 

If someone came flying towards me when im selling anything I will shoot them as soon as i can.

 

I just have to protect my cargo, and if i wait to see if they are going to help me, I leave myself vulnerable to quick losses.

I understand the shoot first tactic, but realistically if you see my Akula and things have not already been exploding around you, you are not my target. Had a group of three on the beach near Paleto fire of a few SAMs as I flew past and away from them on my way to a friends facility. I circled around and dropped down from Chiliad in stealth and showed what an Akula attack looks like.

 

I don"t think destroying sell mission items is challenging or profitable, so I also police, assist, and sometimes just hang in the shadows and watch the show.

 

Hope they get the nav/position lights lights to turn off when you go into stealth mode.

 

Can anybody confirm the single versus dual turret range and damage? I have heard some say it is only cosmetic, others say it reduces range but doubles damage.

CEO and and his associate (we'll call him ass for short) were griefing a lobby so I stopped them with my Akula 3 or 4 times.

 

They stopped for a bit so I decided to bait them with my Phantom Custom and Haulage.

 

Sure enough they both high tailed it towards me and CEO started playing rocket man with the back of the trailer while the ass fell behind in his deluxo.

 

After about a mile of the bombardment and many lulz I'm getting close to the docks and I see a white jet blip heading straight for me from in front.

 

Fawk, this could throw the trailer over the bridge and into the bay. I tightened my seat belt and gripped the wheel (lol dramatics) and waited for the impact.

 

But noooo... It went straight past me and I heard explosions and was no longer being chased.

 

The dude in the jet slaughtered the two griefers beautifully in 1 pass. I thanked him and he texted me "got ur back".

 

It was a great feeling and I friended the guy. Now I know how it feels to have good deeds done to you in this faked up game. :)

Great story! From both of you!

 

I mean yes, you would be attacked right away if an akula unstealths and intends to attack, but basically its like stalking a girl at night with your knife out and not saying anything to her, just intending to help if anyone tries anything.

^agreed. Normally, I'm running my own cargo, but occasionally I'll take a break and watch other people's backs. If I do that though, honestly I'm in a Nokota most of the time. I'll usually send them a quick text, "Air support inbound" or something similar, and circle high above. If anyone starts to head towards, I'll swoop down lower. (I should use the Akula.. would make more sense.. but it's hard to give up the stick on the old warbird.)

 

Made quite a few friends that way, actually.

Hopped into the rear seats to check out the view and see what can be done.

 

How do i get the night vision and thermal cameras to work?

 

What else can be done?

The Homing Missiles are heat seeking, not radar guided (if we got technical) so stealth mode (reducing radar profile) doesn't help when you're being target by your heat signature.

Some poorly skilled Akula pilot tried to stop me in my Phantom Wedge during the VIP work, Plowed. He had the nerve to try and leave in stealth mode after my job was complete. Hit him with with the Explosive Sniper as he flew off, but his tail rotor surprisingly was destroyed and I got the kill.

So if there's an Akula hostile, try going for the tail rotor with Explosive rounds.

Got it during the sale.

 

I'm not impressed by it yet, might regret it and sell it if i need the money.

 

The stealth mod works on cops but not NPCs

 

I only wanted a second Heli to have gas bombs on it, for contact missions and such

I bought a second one myself at the last minute while it was still on offer. So now I can choose between barrage or missiles when I need to.

 

Barrage is mainly for fighting other helicopters (need something they can't dodge). Missiles should be good for clearing out large groups of AI guys on foot (since they'll lock onto them).

I just reverted to Homing, I don't like the cooldown and guns suck. If only this helico had some decent guns...they're supposed to be the same as Insurgent Pick Up Custom. Guessing R* considered it would have been too OP.

 

At least Homing missiles don't lock on player on foot.
