With so many potential enemies lurking on the streets of New York Zero (NYZ) in Radical Entertainment‘s Prototype 2, it’s important to take every opportunity to stay protected. With the streets full of threats at every turn – whether it’s the infected on the ground or the Blackwatch strike teams in the air, the player must do whatever it takes to survive…even if it means grabbing a chopper out of the sky and using it as a weapon of defence and destruction.
This week, the Transport Helicopter and Gunship can be added to the vehicles available for hijack by Sgt. James Heller:
The Transport Helicopters are stocked with some serious weapons. They are used by Blackwatch to deposit strike teams wherever they are needed as well as providing back up with rockets. When hijacking the helicopter, a great trick is to throw both pilots out of the side of the chopper and use it to tackle any enemies in waiting. Another great addition to the Transport Helicopter’s arsenal is the Rocket Pod which can be used to blast any threats away.
As Transport Helicopter’s are destroyed, Gunships replace them as the vehicle of choice dropping strike teams into troubled areas. Similar to the Transport Helicopter, these vehicles are armed with enough artillery to do some serious damage to whatever crosses their path. A less safe way to travel than a Transport Helicopter, the almighty missile launcher attached to the Gunship can create some substantial havoc. However, don’t be completely fooled; when the Gunship meets Heller’s Whipfist Finisher, it doesn’t stand a chance.
