3. Bloodhound Siege Helicopter (Best for Strength)

If you’re looking to optimize destruction, then this is the helicopter for you. This bulky aerial beast comes equipped with high-powered machine guns and explosive missiles. It may not be the fastest or most durable, but in terms of strength, it takes the cake. Eliminate any enemy in a matter of moments when you’re behind the wheel of these flying behemoths. 

What is great about the Bloodhound:

  • You get a maximum of 1,000 machinegun rounds, that easily take down other vehicles and helicopters with a few consecutive hits. 
  • And for when you're dealing with a bulkier opponent that is totting around some heavy armor, you have 100 explosive missiles. You only need a few of them to take down even your toughest foes.

How to get it:

  • They are occasionally used by the Black Hand and Army of Chaos, so you can sometimes be found at base sites.
  • Since you are liberating a nation you must advance the frontline of your army to take over different regions of the map. By completing multiple missions in one region, you weaken it for your army to take over. Conquering regions allows you to advance in the storyline, as well as, unlocks different weapons and vehicles for supply drops. The Bloodhound Heli is one of those items, taking over the Hatun Ukucha region unlocks it for supply drops. 
  • Or you can sometimes steal them from the Black Hand or the Army of Chaos.

Picture this, you’ve gotten into a little scuffle with some Black Hand soldiers when they call for backup and suddenly you’re set upon by the full forces of an army? They’re coming at you from all sides and you're running out of ammo! Don’t panic, instead use one of these to turn the tides. They are often used by the Black Hand and the Army of Chaos, so they are easy to find, with the added perk of being the fastest helicopter in the game reaching speeds just over 300 km/h.

What is great about the Spectre:

  • On top of being the fastest helicopter, it also holds a total of 100 missiles that are strong enough to destroy even heavy armored vehicles with a few hits.
  • If you are in a pinch, this is commonly used by the Black Hand. So, grapple on to it, high jack it, and raise some hell. If the need arises then it also makes for a great getaway vehicle
  • They are found almost everywhere, which makes them the perfect in a pinch aerial friend. In a worst-case scenario, you can use it to flee; the only thing fast enough to catch you is another Spectre. Which you can easily take down with your missiles. 

How to get it:

  • Completing the mission Training: Communication Skills to unlock for supply drops.
  • It is very common to find on the Black Hand and Army of Chaos bases and is regularly used by both forces throughout the map.

1. A5 Coyote Assault Helicopter (Best for Durability)

For Rico, this is a good way to start the day.

This is a perfect example of how first impressions can be deceiving. It is a lightweight helicopter with 2 mounted machine guns; in the chaotic world of Just Cause 4, that isn’t a whole lot to work with. However, you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you find its hidden arsenal of naval mines inside. In overall durability, strength, and versatility, the Coyote is unmatched.

What is great about the A5 Coyote:

  • It may seem lightweight, but it can take some heavy damage. Withstanding bullet after bullet, and an occasional missile or two. 
  • You have 4000 rounds of machine gun ammo and it is honestly tricky to use all of it up. A few consecutive rounds are powerful enough to destroy most vehicles. 
  • Apparently you have 100 naval mines hidden somewhere inside its sleek frame. They can be a bit tricky to aim, but once you have the hang of it, you’ll find it offers you different attack opportunities than other aerial weaponry. 
  • It is great against all different types of vehicles; it’s quick, durable, versatile, and powerful. 

How to get it:

  • The A5 Coyote is a part of the Danger Rising DLC, so you have to purchase this first. Once downloaded 3 huge Agency submarines appear on your map. You must go to the USS Visionary and complete all of its missions in order to unlock this helicopter for supply drops.
  • You can also find them flying around all three Agency submarines.
