Over the past few guides, we’ve taken a look at cars, boats, and bikes and today it’s the turn of those buzzards of the sky, the helicopters. Everyone likes to travel in style, and the ten bad boys on this list will help you do just that. Whether you’re visiting the new casino or raining hellfire down on other players trying to stop your smuggling run, there’s a chopper for every occasion and, as you would expect, they’re pricey enough that other people will know that you’ve got money to burn.
It’s a jungle out there, and you need to be able to protect yourself, and what better way is there do that than by being miles above the competition, with all guns blazing? So do yourself a favor, check out this guide and get yourself the best, and most expensive, helicopters money can buy.
10 Most Expensive Helicopters In GTA Online
Buckingham Swift Deluxe
It might cost $5,150,000, but the Buckingham Swift Deluxe is a masterpiece of engineering, decked out in gold. It seats four so you don’t need to go it alone and will reach 160 mph but the fact that it’s colored in the colors of Kings/Queens will let everyone know that you’re way more father up the food chain than they are and that they should bow down to you every time you fly by, overhead.
It’s just as good for a trip to the Diamond Casino and Resort as it is in helping you make a quick getaway and as long as you know what you’re doing behind the stick, will serve you like a loyal, faithful dog for years to come.
It may only seat two, but with the amount of fire-power it has at its disposal, the FH-1 Hunter means that you don’t need any in-game friends, or real ones for that matter, to own the skies. Strapped with two Gatling guns and enough missiles to make Donald Trump twitchy, the FH-1 Hunter is the perfect tool for leaving destruction on an epic scale wherever you go. And it’s not just the amount of carnage that this helicopter does that is so impressive because when the eyes of the police are on you, you can get the hell out of dodge at 160 mph.
There’s a scene in Apocalypse Now where the U.S Army comes flying out of the sun with Wagner playing before they lay a Viet-Cong village to waste. With classical music blaring, cause it scares the hell out of them, it’s one of the best things that has ever been committed to celluloid, and now you can re-enact that exact scene thanks to the Buckingham Valkyrie. Grab a few mates, and they can take control of the side guns while you open up on your unsuspecting victims with the front cannon. The tunes you choose to play while bringing the end of the world to Los Santos is entirely up to you.
If there appears to be a pattern developing wherein most of the helicopters in this guide seem to be weapons of mass destruction, well, that’s because there is. It seems that the good folks at Rockstar decided that if you’re going to take to the air, then you might as well do it with enough weapons to make any activity you participate in a war crime. The Akula is no different in this retrospect. Grab four friends and go cause millions in collateral damage whenever the mood takes you in this 160 mph killing machine.
Buckingham SuperVolito Carbon
If all that death, murder, and downright villainy have just become too much for you, then you can always revert to traveling in style with the Buckingham SuperVolito Carbon. This isn’t a helicopter for running amok, it’s a helicopter for making a statement, and that’s reflected in its price tag. It will set you back a cool $3,330,000 but when it looks as good as it does, then is money really and object? Show off as you fly through the skies of Los Santos, keep one eye out for those players who have invested in ariel fortresses.
Back to the machines of death, we go with the Savage, and it lives up to its name. A 155 mph, four-seater with missiles up the wazoo and a canon that could cut a building in half, the Savage is the perfect example of something that does what it says on the tin. It may not be as fast as the other over-powered helicopters in this guide, but as long as you’re facing the right way, then you can obliterate any resistance that you come across.
It may only have a single Gatling gun strapped to its front, and it may only sit one person but don’t let that fool you. The Nagasaki Havok is the best helicopter for you if you want to keep your operations on the low-down. It’s fast at 160 mph, which seems to be a recurring top-end speed here, and it can turn on a dime allowing you to outmaneuver anyone who decides that it’s their job to bring your business crashing down. Sometimes brains over brawn is the way to go.
If you’ve started your own business as a CEO in GTA Online then you’re going to expect to have the best of the best that the game has to offer. The flashiest cars, the biggest bank account, the hottest new clothes, but what you really need to top it all off is the ultimate boss machine so you and your associates can really travel in style. The Buckingham Volatus is that very ride. It screams out “Look at me! Aren’t I a huge success?” to which people will reply “Well yes, yes you are” before they try to kill you.
I don’t have a great deal to say about the Buckingham SuperVolito, and that’s because it’s the same as the Buckingham SuperVolito Carbon, just without the carbon. It goes as fast, seats as many people but it’s over $1,000,000 cheaper so, yeah, if you’re feeling the squeeze financially then you can always just plump for this option.
Western Company Cargobob Jetsam
There are times in GTA Online when you want to cause as much destruction as you possibly can, and there are other times that you want to steal shit by picking it up and flying off with it. If you ever find yourself longing to do the latter, then the Western Company Cargobob Jetsam is the bird for you. It seats ten so if you do have to fight your way out of a crash landing you should be suitably protected and clocks in at 160 mph, but if you’ve got precious stolen cargo strapped to the bottom of it, then I advise against going anywhere near that top speed.
