A Jetpack hovering at Verdant Meadows.

The Jetpack is a 60 million dollar vehicle 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, being a vehicle which behaves like a pickup -- it hangs in the air when not in use, and is activated instantly when Carl Johnson walks into it. It allows for directional control with two omnidirectional nozzle-like jets providing thrust; strangely, the nozzles do not seem to burn or otherwise harm CJ, despite being inches from his shoulders. When using the Jetpack, the player can only fire one handed weapons, although, somewhat incongruously, these can be dual-wielded.

The Jetpack is a prototype created in the US military's underground lab in Area 69; Carl Johnson steals it for The Truth in the mission Black Project. Due to the secrecy of the project, The Truth is the only civilian other than CJ to know of its existence. After this mission, the Jetpack will respawn at Verdant Meadows. CJ later uses it to attack a military train in the mission Green Goo . The Jetpack is permanently available in Verdant Meadows after the Black Project mission and it can also be accessed at any time through cheats.

Trivia

  • If the player is shot dead while flying the jetpack, they will remain alive while airborne, however the jetpack will quickly gravitate towards the ground.
  • If player spawns the jetpack while riding a bicycle (BMX,Mountain Bike or Bike), the player can ride the bicycle without pedaling it. If player is on a Mountain Bike player can reaches highway speed easily, allowing player to ride one on the highways.
  • A glitch can be done with the Jetpack by (on the PS2 version) holding both Strafe buttons at the same time; the player will hover in the air until the buttons are released. Also, the left nozzle will turn clockwise, the right nozzle counterclockwise.

The Thruster Pack, also known as the T-PACK (Model: 050978[1]) for short, was a UNSC-issue form of propulsion for use by individuals on deep-space missions.

Contents

Background

Designed for long-range deep-space operations, T-PACKS were still some of the riskiest equipment available. They featured triple redundancy NAV systems and stabilizers. T-PACKS contain two tanks of compressed Triamino Hydrazine, which, if ruptured, would cause rapid loss of control, for which there is little a person can do. They can also be linked up to weapons such as MA5B Assault Rifles. Should the wearer fire the weapon, the pack will provide enough counter thrust to keep the wearer from spinning out of control [2]. T-PACKS also contain emergency rescue lines of orange and white rope meant to rescue other people who are stranded in deep space[3]. They are essentially a less advanced and effective version of the Covenant Antigravity Packs.

Trivia

  • T-PACKS also appear to be adversely affected by radiation; if they come into proximity with unshielded radiation, they will fail. They will also fail and cause similar results if struck by weaponry.

A Merr-Sonn JT-12 jetpack
"A lot of the younger soldiers thought we oughta be zipping around the battlefield on jetpacks. But one direct hit, and you're grounded. Maybe forever."
Bren Derlin

The jetpack was an aerial personal transportation device in limited use across the galaxy. A jetpack offered a great degree of mobility in the air, though often at the personal risk of the user.

Characteristics

Cad Bane wore jetpack thrusters on his boots

Jetpacks were usually worn on the back, and controlled by a wrist-mounted device or through verbal commands issued into a visor or helmet. To launch, a jetpack funneled both air and fuel through miniaturized turbines. In the device's intake system, the air-fuel mix was ignited, providing the thrust needed to propel the wearer through the air. They were not reliable for use in zero, low or high atmospheric situations, since they required atmospheric gases to produce thrust[1]. The launch of most jetpacks was also accompanied by a cloud of exhaust - useful for quick getaways requiring a handy smoke screen.

In flight, directional exhaust nozzles controlled the user's flight path, while a gyrostabilizer counterbalanced the jetpack's velocity for descent. Jetpacks were considered impractical for public use: downsides to the jetpack's agility included the device's thirty-kilo weight, and the fact that most models could carry enough fuel for around twenty bursts of thrust. Often, repulsor packs provided a more viable alternative.

Notable usages

During the Battle of Geonosis, Jango Fett's Merr-Sonn JT-12 jetpack failed to fire, leaving him vulnerable to Mace Windu's decapitating strike at the Battle of Geonosis. During the battle, a Reek had nearly trampled Jango and had damaged his jetpack. After Jango killed the Reek, Mace Windu charged at Jango, who at the last second attempted to activate his jetpack, but failed. Mace Windu quickly beheaded the legendary bounty hunter.

Members of the Death Watch using their jetpacks

Another popular model of jetpack was the Mitrinomon Transports Z-6 jetpack, used by both Jango and Boba Fett. Boba's jet pack was a combination of a rocket launcher, and a jumper pack. The latter found that his jetpack was not always reliable when it was damaged by a semi-blind Han Solo on Tatooine during the Skirmish at Carkoon. The misfiring jetpack sent Fett spiraling into the belly of the Sarlacc, but it helped him escape the Sarlacc soon after. The Z-6 was fitted with a top-mounted missile launcher.

Jetpacks were also worn by Wookiee Berserkers, elite jet and blaze troopers, and Clone Commander Cody during the Clone Wars, as well as by the dreaded bounty hunter Durge. Battle droids and exoskeleton Dark troopers had jetpacks built into themselves.
