GTA Online: Top 3 helicopters in the game
GTA Online contains an enormous number of interactive activities. Players can take part in a scripted Story Mode, and step in and out at will to engage in interactive and multiplayer encounters. Players can engage in criminal Jobs with the assistance of other Crew Members. Crews can also join together to play Sports, compete in Races, and hang out. Helicopters are one of the things which make playing Grand Theft Auto V Online a lot more fun than the other games.
Grand Theft Auto V greatly improved helicopter behaviour, seemingly becoming more realistic. The damage to helicopters in GTA V is more realistic as they are weaker in multiple aspects. The average helicopter takes much less bullet resistance before the engine is damaged and a single explosive destroys the helicopter completely. In GTA V, the main rotor blades as well the tail rotors can kill an NPC or another player, except for some Fenestron-style tail rotors. In GTA V Online, the helicopters, at least maverick ones, can be taken down with two shots to the tail rotor so the sniping techniques may be slightly less useful than before.
Now let us look at the top 3 helicopters in Grand Theft Auto V Online based on their speed, acceleration, braking and handling statistics.
