Can't you fly high enough to avoid gunfire? That's typically what I did when using otters / sand pipers in Washington.
This was actually happening before the jamming update as well.
It would be fun if I could effectively use fighter jets again, with that in mind, I am proposing a new idea:
Create a separate creative server where all items and vehicles are available and none of them are nerfed. This would be Freezzer's hard mode server. This would be a challenging pvp server for noob and advanced player alike.
Ok thanks for clarification.
Edit: Well the 5 shot killed him... how do you explain that?
If there is then staff please move this to the reports section.
As far as I know player's cannot survive a headshot by a Hecate, even if wearing a helmet.
I have encountered a player that seems to take about five shots to the head from a Hecate to kill.

Sorry, but I don't know what happened to my screen record to create such bad video quality.
Edit: Don't blame my wifi because I had it upgraded to WCTell/WCFiber which is one of, if not, the best internet services you can get in my area.\
Note the suspected hacker is on the red tower.
I am facing a new problem now. Most of the time the gun shoots but when aiming at a player it sometimes stops shooting even though it still has bullets in it... waits about a second and then starts shooting again.
As i said before the problem is not the jet hp but the fact that people will load it with barricades (which got their hp buffed some patches ago by the game dev). If we buff the jet dmg the same problem we've got in the past will rise again with it being impossible to play against and killing the sandbox aspect of the servers.
Your argument is invalid seeing how anyone can place barricades on any vehicle including tanks, and helicopters with machine guns, yet those were not nerfed. (I still die in one hit from a tank shell).
you could also lower the max number of barricades players can place on vehicles as well as barricade health.
can you make it to where you can't place barricades on jets?
Why can I still take damage even though my spawn protect is on? When I spawn and someone starts shooting me they drain my health to 0 and once the spawn protect is over I die instantly in one more shot. It makes spawn protect totally useless.
You could instead have made the jet able take damage from more guns but instead you made its player damage 1 per shot. can you at least make it to where it does not take more that 50 rounds to kill a single player?
It was so much fun using them. Like I said in a different topic:
There is a difference between a scrub and a good player. The scrub complains about things being OP while the good player tries to find ways to overcome them.
Should we nerf grizzlies to make them as powerfull as sportshots so it can be a fair fight? NO! If fighter jets are OP then don't nerf them, use them. Plus they are easily countered by matamorez and other anti vehicle guns. Please unnerf them as it was not fair to all the people who loved being fighter pilots.
Involved Player(s): Manigras: Steam ID: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198112722715
Server: Freezzer Sandbox 1-4
Time: March 9, 6:00 PM to about 7:00 PM, Time Zone: GMT -4
Note: Manigras is somehow always able to lock onto my position even if I hide and one position, move to another and try to snipe him. Notice how he is able to immediately see me near the end of the video? I intentionally let him kill me at the end of the video to get his gamertag:
Note: After 1:25 in the video it shows a perfect example of how he was able to instantly lock onto my position.
Also after 6:30 in the video is shows another good example of how he was able to lock onto to me. In this instance he fired using what I think is a sharps rifle but I was able to move in time to dodge.
Do charges still make noise when placed on the ground? If not I have an idea that could potentially be used for some more clips.
There is more where I got 2 guys at the same time. (Not featured in the video)
Not to mention how many times you died to get 3 clips.
This is common for people who want to get footage for a youtube video. it takes several attempts to get good footage.
One time (as a joke) I used the gamer tag "Gandalf the G.A.Y". Although I was never warned by staff, I stopped using it. Is this considered an offensive gamer tag?
Wait its possible to reset your stats?
Eh, any suggestions for urban areas?
Spec ops gear. its dark colors blends in with the roads. Also general camo advice: Ditch showy cosmetics such as things that glow, have particle effects (ex:falling cash particles) . Only use cosmetics that make your character and your character's weapons blend in with your environment. For example I have a green calling card. Avoid wearing bright colors and things that stick out too easily. Also with spec opps, the head is weak because we don't have black colored helmets yet.
I think that using the ghillie suit in sandbox is terrible idea. For one thing it allows you to get one shot to the head from a grizzly. Not only that but if the players you are hiding from turn grass off in their graphics setting it becomes even more useless. Therefore I present to you my version of good camouflage:
A green parka, green daypack, forest military pants, vest and helmet, and a green balaclava make amazing camouflage especially at night in the forest. I have been using this suit for a while now and have had people try to shoot at me but miss a lot because I have become so hard to see. Also once they do finally lock onto you, it will take many more shots to kill you because this suit offers better armor. It can also survive headshots from a grizzly, making it a much better option than a ghillie suit in my opinion. Works great on PEI and Washington. For those trying to get better at pvp using camouflage, I hope this helps.
The best way to counter a Hecate is to get close to the sniper. the gun is absolutely terrible for close quarters combat. Get a mid-range gun (at least 200 meter range). and sneak up on the Hecate user. This is how I often deal with them. Take my advice, I have a 2.69 KD and this advice has really helped me fend off snipers.
Not to mention how fun it is scaring the crap out of unaware snipers who you sneak up on. The sound of rapid fire gunshots is enough to make anyone who is unaware jump in their seat.
