Hello ladies and lentlemen,
a lot of new aircraft has been introduced to GTA Online
ever since the Smuggler’s Run update.
Combined with many anti-air weapons and vehicles added later on,
many thought the Hydra was no longer the king of the skies.
That’s only true to the extent that certain jets can now beat the Hydra in dogfights.
In terms of practicality, the Hydra is still the best air craft in the game, for one obvious
For one obvious reason
and that’s the ability to do VTOL, which stands for vertical take-off and landing.
The Hydra is still the fastest way to travel mid to long distance,
and killing whatever you need killed with the lazer beam
of explosive bullets.
Now it may be a little tricky and even dangerous to land the Hydra,
but speed is key if you want to save time.
What you want to do is right before you reach your destination,
point the Hydra’s nose downwards
and press E to activate hover mode.
What this does is cancel out the original forward momentum,
and hover mode will stop the Hydra from descending.
You’ll have to decide how much you want to tilt down towards the ground
depending on how close you are to the ground.
If you don’t have enough height
or change to hover mode too late,
you WILL crash into the ground.
Oh, and don’t forget to pull out.
Your landing gear, I mean.
In addition to the Hydra, the buzzard is by far the easiest way to move around the city.
When the option to instantly call one with the CEO menu came,
cars in GTA Online became almost useless.
People just hardly bothered with cars anymore.
The basic mentality to landing a helicopter quickly is by pulling it back when u reach
your destination to cancel out the forward momentum.
However, this can be hard because you can’t see where you’re landing.
So you can try do a semi-circle around the landing zone.
This is a lot more complicated as you need to practice incorporating the descend button,
S, to sync cancelling forward momentum and descending to the ground together.
And these two factors are what you need to keep in mind when you practice landing helicopters,
because it does require a lot of practice to master such flying skill.
Thank you for watching, and on the next video I’ll be showing you the fastest way to complete
the Hostile Takeover CEO/VIP work specifically with the Hydra.
