Yeah it works for me and others fine, so check your targeting priority. 

Ahh, I was mistaken. They are working for me again. They removed the ability to shoot rockets without a lock on and I assumed they hadn't fixed the glitch. Thanks for making me actually go check!

A word of warning: It appears that the Akula no longer hides hand-carried cargo with its built-in Off the Radar feature, at least with Business Battle cargo.

 

Anyway, here's me hunting down a Phantom Custom, which was one hell of a tough nut to crack for the Akula.

Nah Rockstar haven't removed anything, there's never been a "Homing Off" option for the Akula when using the Homing Missiles upgrade. The only option without homing is the Missile Barrage upgrade.

As generally useless as the machine guns are on this thing, especially against ground targets, they're a nice harassment tool. I've had several people skid out or crash just from popping up and spraying their vehicles with the MG's.

Another thing that still needs a serious buff. Both pilot's 7.62 minigun and co-pilot's operated .50 Cal minigun are so weak in comparison to Buzzard's 7.62mm and Insurgent's .50 Cal. 

+ the damn thermal/night vision can't be used by turret operator

 

Some peoples will say "its balance it has stealth ability its already-a-griefing-machine-dude".

Aircraft machine guns have no reason at all to be trash at damage output, they're a headache to line up and hit if your target is moving so they all should at the least have .50 cal guns levels of damage. Personally when I use the machine guns it is to disable enemy vehicles, something that would be far more practical if the guns could make short work of rendering a vehicle inoperable.

 

Plus, such damage output would make them actually usable against infantry. I don't even try to kill NPCs with aircraft machine guns, it's just impractical the way it is now. They should one-shot them, since they can make short work of any helicopter if they're in numbers.

Yeah, even the free, 5-years old Annihilator do a better job at blowing up NPC aircrafts and armored vehicles like those armored Cognoscenti during Headhunter. 

 

If I recall correctly the Buzzard miniguns were buffed also in 2014, I wish R* balance/damage dude could reconsidere the question for Akula guns...

My akula was a little bit to fast for that broomstick.

Just saw the guy who carried CEO special cargo in Akula, he was in stealth mode but his cargo was visible on the map. So Akula doesn't hide CEO crates anymore, not sure if it still can hide hangar or bunker supplies...

Interestingly, Ginetta's new supercar has just been named the Akula.

Question.  Was the dual 50cal minigun glitch fixed?  As in, if I put this back on, will my missiles still lock on to targets?

AFAIK, it was.

 

I still haven't switchdd back to the twin turret miniguns because it looks kinda silly IMO.

Cool thanks Voodoo.  Me neither.  I resent that I have to pay 300k for a gun I won't even use as it's co-pilot operated.  By my OCD doesn't like that I haven't upgraded it lol.

I had a "Woah!" moment last night.

I thought while flying mine that I never see Akulas in Free Roam and then it hit me, loads of people could be flying them but I would never know...

I think (and it is only a hunch from watching other business battlers try to find me) that if you pick up a crate while you have stealth mode on then you stay in stealth mode. Picking up and then going into stealth doesn't work.

I switched the handling on mine to "smooth" and I still hate how it handles. I love it otherwise, but was to wobbly for me.

I have mine on Race and fly it like a Jet, sideways between buildings, diving straight down ec.

Being by far the most useful, it gains altitude quickly, very agile with Race handling. I love having it that way.

 

Being an attack helicopter, though...

Trying to stay steady while firing rockets, and especially bombing is difficult as hell cause it doesn't stay upright, it will dip down into the blast even if you turn too much.

The Akula is totally worth every penny, especially when running supplies or operating in rooms full of enemy players...
