The Annihilator, how it got it's name, I don't know. I mean it's not because it 'annihilates', that's for damn sure. :lol:

OK, so I've been playing quite a bit of GTA IV MP. I convinced a good friend of mine to purchase a PS3 and GTA IV and each night since then we've been jumping in game after work each night. It's a lot of fun and quite addicting. We even bought bluetooth headsets so that we could talk to one another in game (using the in game cell phone). It's a blast! We normally always play free roam because imo, it's the best. Everything is open and you can do whatever it is you want. In our case, we team up and hunt others down. ;)

Anyway, point being, I enjoy flying in games. In any game that has a flying vehicle, I'm normally the one pilot trying to master everything about it. In GTA IV though, there is nothing to master. Flying isn't exactly difficult using the controller, however trying to attack using the 'attack heli' is out of the question. I haven't seen one person who can do this without ending up crashing or going completely out of control. Also, I know I've hit people with the guns, yet they haven't died. I don't know about you but it shouldn't take much from those gatling guns to rip through human flesh and it's hard enough to even hit anyone with them so when they do, it should be game over for them! I'm not talking about making them overpowered here, but right now they're not even powerful. They're pretty weak.

Heli vs heli is pretty funny too. It isn't even about shooting the other helicopter either. The best, easiest and fastest way to take down another 'annihilator' is to chop off it's tail. It normally only takes one hit if you do it right. I find the best way to do this is to get above the other helicopter and come down from above (DFA!), making sure your blades slice through his tail. Game Ova! ... It can be quite funny watching two helicopters battle like this though, and if you have a passenger you can tell him to go grab a soda or make a sandwich or something as it could become a boring battle of two helicopters going in circles and up and down. :lol:

It is however a good transporter, or a good vehicle to place a scout on some higher buildings. But if I see one trying to attack me while I'm on the ground, I simply run to a rocket launcher and wait for the pilot to mess up, which in most cases happens when he/she tries to aim down in order to hit me with his/her guns. When he/she tries to recover from the slip up, boom, rocket time.

Anyway I figured I'd just share that. I recommend not using this helicopter if you're looking for an advantage. It's more a weakness.

Why the hell did you convince him to buy a PS3 for GTA IV when he could've easily gotten a 360 much cheaper?! BTW, if you can shoot from that heli you should get a couple guys with M4's or something and take em around while they try to get kill whoever your after. P.S. heres a little tip for using the Heli's gatling gun, first, get really close to the ground, so it doesn't require too much motion up and down, then fire away. great for destroying cars and such.

We wouldn't be doing much of that if he had a 360 and I had a PS3 now would we?

The closer you get to the ground the easier you are to kill, especially if they have rocket launches.

Well there rocket launchers aren't heat seekers so you CAN just dodge them. And since they move a little slower then actual rockets then you should have a good 5 seconds to get out of the way if there about 40-60 yards away.

I just find it odd that they would use a UH-60 Blackhawk as a combat helicopter in the game when in reality it primarily serves as transport only.

Yeah, but in the game it also serves largely as a transport.. Dropping off N.O.O.S.E (lol) teams.

That picture looks epic. Now I officially fucking hate anyone who has already played Grand Theft Auto IV multiplayer.
