Chopping an unchoppable chopper

Recommended Posts

When trying to chop a vhopper A: what does clam do and B: do you have to have keys to chop.

This free chopper that was just laying around really doesnt want to get chopped.
Thanks

If the vehicle is unlocked, you can just fly it to the chop shop and select chop-the press the vehicle that shows up. If the vehicle is locked you just need to lockpick it to access the vehicle. Claiming the vehicle only works on vehicles obtained from the blackwater.

@Theak Might this me a Medic Chopper?

You should be able to chop the vehicle if you have it in the zone of the circle. You dont need keys to chop a vehicle as long as its in the zone. If you press chop and dont see the vehicle then u need to move it closer.

I believe chop shop is a bit broken at the minute, and I think it will be fixed in the push of the new update hopefully? Correct me if I'm wrong.

No one has said anything about this? What exactly is wrong? I've chopped a few things as of recent update and haven't had issues.

I haven't seen any issues with it either, I've had no problems chopping multiple vehicles since last update. One issue I have seen occur however is that if someone dies in the vehicle then disconnects with their body in it and it disappears, it acts like its still there and you cant get it out so you can't chop the vehicle, similarly if a body gets stuck in the vehicle for some reason you can't chop it.

It used to be broken, musta fixed then. I think its that what I was getting confused with @Jesse ^^^

Yeah, makes sense... Its because it checks for "crew" and knowing arma.. well yeah.. I'll see if there isn't something we can do about that.

Might be a VX curse because me and the crew have experienced this problem as well; on separate occasions. In addition, there were no bodies for us when we tried to chop

If you guys can provide what vehicles this is happening with it would help greatly.

@Jesse Uhh one time we stole Oil trucks Im unfamiliar with the names but it was a oil tempest. Another time it was a Hemmit box 

But primary it's an issue with oil trucks to my knowledge.

Personally i've never had a problem with chopping a chopper

If someone logs off in their helicopter their body will stay in there. Therefore when you go to chop it and it checks for crew inside it'll find that one body, meaning you can't chop. Haven't tried it in forever but getting all the seats filled up removes the logged off person.

i've seen the hemmt box in every instance i've tried seizing/chopping not working. 100% bug rate (on my side) for that vehicle.

Will be resolved coming next update. Will do an alive check on crew.

Just tested in editor:

Returned: 2. So this why when you kill orca passengers or something you can't chop it till you pop the bodies and such.

Sorry for the abrupt cut off there, i tore my rig apart to upgrade it and well it took longer to do than i thought.
Vehicle was an orcha i found. abandoned, at the airfield.  my thoughts are either someone dsynced while parking it, died and alt f4 to save their load out, or they died of water and just logged out.
After looking around i'm not the only one having issues like this.  I hope someone isn't trying to exploit the game.
I had 3 people in and out of the chopper no pull bodys available or anything...full keys truck and all, i think maybe the chopper was so awesome it wasnt having it.

I did get to watch later that night someone fail to get my orcha chopped so they purposely, let anti air blow them up... i say let laughing ( i think they made 3 passes) cost me alittle in ins... knowing 2 people lost a load out and looked really stingy, worth it.
There's good Olympus players and there are hobos, what can you do, its part of arma.  Ya, I'm alittle salty about it but Arma Karma ;)

I will be benchmark testing and configuring my new set up tonight 
Maybe ill see you guys on, if you need a lift (and your not an ars hole) `Outlaw Transportation` should be up and running tonight.
 

Also, thanks to everyone who replied.
I appreciate the community effort, this is why i like Olympus  and why i help people cheap or free of charge.
