Of all the Grand Theft Auto 5 cheats, the Buzzard Attack Helicopter is by far the most popular, easily surpassing Give Weapons and Explosive Melee. Why? We have no idea, but here are three reasons why piloting this bad boy after conjuring it from thin air is so appealing.

Death from Above 

Similar to first-person shooters, you always want the high ground to score the maximum vantage point. Well, the same can be said for GTA 5. Sitting inside the Buzzard gives you a superior view of the ground and enemies below. Feel free to rain hot rocket death upon them. 

What a View

There’s plenty to see in GTA 5, from the dense urban landscape of Los Santos to the beautiful mountains in Blaine County. Feel free to take it all in while piloting the Buzzard Attack Helicopter. Sure beats dealing with the chaos on the ground. 

Even the Odds with Air-Based Vehicles 

OK, it’s usually not a smart idea to pit the Buzzard against a fighter jet, but it’s better than running around waiting to get obliterated. Of course, chopper against chopper puts you on a more even playing field. 

Need to spawn the Buzzard pronto? Here’s the way to do it!
