I suck with either or, but if I were to use one in battle, I'd select the Buzzard. I have horrible accuracy with the miniguns, so with rockets at my dispense, I at least have a chance of hitting enemies. Plus, the Buzzard is a smaller target, whereas the Annihilator can be hit quite easily from all angles.
Suck with both and hate them both because of how everyone uses them online. Some people just to after me for no reason. I have to hide in crevices until they leave me alone. Then try to get to some interior where they can't kill me. It pisses me off.
I like using it in the single player game but the multiplayer? I really don't like it at all because some people will start firing there RPGs or getting the annihilater and the buzzard you name it...but God its f*cking annoying and that's why i when back to the single player game.
In my whole GTA career I've used the an Annihilator. I haven't lost a single fight. I play with three friends and we hover over people. Two side gunners and a navigator (to watch for enemy buzzards). I only use the guns if I have to shoot them down. Most times I can out fly or make them crash. So Annihilator > buzzard.
Zero warden, I,m sorry, but that is total BS that you haven't lost a single fight. How do I know? You said you have a navigator. Lol... You also said you try to make buzzards crash. You can't crash a buzzard in a helicopter chase, unless it's your first day playing. The Buzzard's propellers are too strong.
Here's the thing with Buzzard vs. Annihilator. Although you may think the opposite, the Annihilator will always win with enough patience. When fighting a Buzzard, you must constantly hit it with your single-bullet fire, since bullets aren't explosive reliably in a heli fight. You have to keep going down for health and wait until the opponent buzzard is smoking or ablaze. Now is the crucial step in the fight. You have to race down for health and shoot the health that buzzard is going for. Do not shoot at the buzzard.
If they limited the rockets to 20 or something it would be much better so you dont get idiot noobs just bothering you non stop.
Yeah, I'm surprised R* never added a patch to limit the ammo on the whirly birds like other weapons in the game. If they did that, pilots would have to go back and restock, giving players time to prepare for another attack. I think this would actually make the gameplay even more exciting and wee bit more realistic.
I personally find the Annihilator easier to control and it is definitely faster. (All the people who are saying the Buzzard is faster are f*cking retarded and have clearly never used an Annihilator against a Buzzard in multiplayer or vice versa)
I think it's easier to target the weapons and it just has better maneuverability all round IMO.
The only disadvantage is in multiplayer you have to wait for ammo to reload yet the Buzzard has unlimited.
