The '''Jetpack''' is a [[Money|$]]60 million worth item in [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]. It gives the player the ability to fly while on foot, allowing for both high-flying exploration and for super-fast "hit and run" assaults on enemies—although slower than most vehicles at full speed, it offers the player far greater agility than any normal vehicle, at the expense of leaving the player fully exposed to gunfire.

The Jetpack is unique - it hangs in the air when not in use, and is activated instantly when [[Carl Johnson]] walks into it.

The Jetpack is a mode of transport in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that allows the player to hover, ascend, descend and generally fly around in the air.

Description

It allows for directional control with two omnidirectional nozzle-like jets providing thrust. And like any other vehicle it has unlimited fuel. It is indestructible as it is does not really count as a vehicle in that matter and makes the player invulnerable to falling. The Jetpack is unique - it acts like a weapon pickup when not in use, and is activated instantly when the player walks into it and is 'exited' when the vehicle exit button is pressed. It has a considerably low height limit so is not ideal for scaling the higher buildings.

Story

The Jetpack is a $60 million prototype created in the US military's underground lab in Area 69. Carl Johnson is dumped in-front of Area 69 and is told to steal the 'Black Project' by The Truth in the mission Black Project. Due to the secrecy of the project, The Truth is the only civilian other than Carl Johnson to know of its existence. After this mission, the Jetpack will re-spawn at Verdant Meadows. Carl later uses it to attack a military train in the mission Green Goo. The Jetpack permanently spawns in Verdant Meadows after completing the mission Black Project.

Weapons

Only the 'one-handed' weapons can be used while the Jetpack is in use. The Pistol, TEC 9, Sawn-off Shotgun, and the Micro SMG can only be used. Oddly all of these weapons can be dual wielded while using the Jetpack, but Carl always uses one hand to control the Jetpack.

Locations

Secrets

The Jetpack can help you access the hidden interiors. See Hidden Interiors Universe

Trivia

  • If the player is shot dead while flying the Jetpack, they will remain alive while airborne, however the jetpack will slowly gravitate towards the ground, then when it hits the surface, CJ will automatically dismount the Jetpack and then be wasted.
  • If player spawns the jetpack while riding a bicycle (BMX,Mountain Bike or Bike), the player rides the bicycle without pedaling. If the player is on a Mountain Bike they can reach highway speed easily.
  • The game AI considers the player to be an aircraft while flying the jetpack, thus SAM sites will fire at the player if they fly over Area 69 and Easter Basin Naval Station.
