Comparison: Hydra Jets vs Lazer Jets in GTA Online
Hydra Jets in GTA Online:
Purchasable From: Warstock
The Hydra is a VTOL Jet. This means it has vertical take-off and landing capabilities. This allows the hydra to take off from a single spot or land with ease without the need for an actual runway. This mimics the mechanics of a helicopter. The hydra boats a high top speed and handling on the jet is sub-par. For weapon selection, the Hydra comes equipped with lock-on homing missiles and explosive machine guns. The armour on the hydra is very average, taking only 1 RPG or 2 homing missile hits
Lazer Jets in GTA Online:
Purchasable from: Warstock
The Lazer jet features a look that is almost similar to that of a Hydra, however, the wings are flatter on the face and edges and bulky at the end making a cylindrical formation around the ends of the wings. The Lazer unlike the Hydra does not have VTOL capabilities and needs a runway to take off. The Lazer features a high take-off speed and acceleration while also a good top speed but falls short in the handling area.
The handling on the Lazer is always said to be highly sensitive and heavy and to control making it a little less versatile. the armour on the Lazer is similar to that of a hydra, taking only 1 RPG or 2 Homing missile hits.
The weapons on the Lazer and Hydra are the same featuring explosive cannons and homing missiles. An added plus side to the Lazer is that it can be stored in the hangar and requested as per the need, unlike the Hydra which requires Pegasus and can only be delivered at specific locations.
Conclusion: Hydra Jets vs Lazer Jets in GTA Online
Though the Lazer has some pros while compared to the Hydra such as better take-off speed and easy delivery, the Hydra beats the Lazer in almost every aspect such as the Top speed, handling and more importantly, price tag.
The few pros are not enough to justify the massive price tag of the Lazer, leaving Hydra the clear winner.
