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 2 pieces of clothing on without the Helicopter attacking them, but it will turn hostile if the player has any type of ranged weapon (excluding the Hunting 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.

The Patrol Helicopter is equipped with regular and incendiary rockets as well as a machine gun. During a fight, the helicopter will shoot rockets at any structure occupied by its targeted player. If the player is in an area where they are building blocked, only incendiary rockets will be fired at them. Due to its high HP and damage output, it is best to avoid attacking the Patrol Helicopter without a lot of medical supplies and ammo.
