Patrol Helicopter

The Patrol Helicopter is an aggressive NPC to hostile and geared players. It travels to each Rad Town but will veer off course if it spots or gets shot at by a player.

Players can have up to 3 pieces of clothing on without the Helicopter attacking them, but it will turn hostile if the player has any type of gun (excluding Eoka Pistol, crossbow, and bow). If the player shoots and hits the Helicopter, it will return fire. If the player hides after the Helicopter starts shooting at them, it will patrol the area for 30 seconds before leaving.

Unless in a blocked Tool Cupboard area, the Helicopter will shoot rockets at the player. It is best to avoid attacking this without a lot of medical supplies and ammo.
