The challenge was set that I should fly a fighter jet into the tunnel under the military base, and come out the other side. While I didn’t leave the tunnel in the same vehicle I entered it, and my actions earned me the highest bounty it can place on a player, I’m going to call this one a win.
GTA Online continues to stride forward with long legs, and this clip comes from one of the many, many race tracks/modes. It’s a race in fighter jets, and to fully appreciate the video, you have to understand the context that we were all playing this mode for the first time, and under the impression that there was no option for “weapons on”, when in reality, there’s no option for them to be off.
Unsurprisingly, more GTAV, or GTAO, which has been referred to as “Generally Terrible Assholes Online”. Of course, even when playing with friends, things can go bad. Sometimes, you’ll arrive to pick a friend up in a chopper, and he’ll throw sticky bombs and blow you up, just, y’know, because. Perhaps like in the below clip, you see a friend swimming in the ocean, and fly over and try to pick him up by flying really low. Sadly, even though your chopper is literally dipping in the ocean, he can’t get in, so he gives up and swims away. Undeterred, you fly over and insist the he tries again. You push the limits of good sense by dropping the chopper even lower. Then you go entirely too low, and things go horribly wrong. The chopper’s spinning blades mix with the sea to briefly become the worlds biggest blender, and your friend gets torn to shreds in the moments just before the chopper blades are torn from the rotor. Not through any kind of mercy, the game has let you survive; to tread water in the sea to contemplate your hubris. RIP DoubleMantis.
Grand Theft Auto 5 continues to dominate my gaming time, as well many others. This clip is actually just a snippet of a longer session of flying under other bridges, ending in one horrific mishap.where the cockpit of the jet grazed along the bottom of another bridge which naturally triggered an explosion in the fuel tank.
