Fighter Jets are the most advanced weaponized vehicle in GTA Online that give players dominance over all others. Acquiring them costs a lot of money, therefore, it is vital that you purchase the best plane right from the start. In this list, Gurugamer is going to showcase the best fighter jets for PVP in GTA Online 2022.

1. P-996 LAZER

The P-996 LAZER is probably the best fighter jet you can find in GTA Online. Being the most expensive plane on the roster ($6,500,000), it has the best speed, third highest acceleration and fairly sensitive handling.

P996 Lazer Gta V
The Lazer is the easiest to control, however, it requires experience from the user as its handling is fairly sensitive.

Weapon-wise, the Lazer is more of a gun plane than a missile plane. It comes with dual explosive cannons that can finish off most enemies with a single well-aimed burst. Heavily armored targets like Avenger, Mobile Operations Center, or the Insurgent Pick-Up Custom can also be dealt with after sustained fire. However, in exchange for this high damage, the range of its gun is rather limited.

2. P-45 Nokota

The P-45 Nokota is a fighter aircraft featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Smuggler's Run update. Overall, it is one of the best anti-aircraft fighter plane, with the ability to shoot rockets constantly every second on top of its machine gun arsenal.

The Nokota is designed for dogfights, as long as the enemies do not run from it.

By default, the Nokota has 4 machine guns mounted on its wings. These guns have a moderate fire rate but deal a lot of damage per bullet. This is what put the Nokota above the other planes on this list.

3. Pyro

The Buckingham Pyro is a military twin-boom fighter jet featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Smuggler's Run update. By default, the Pyro is weaker than the Nokota. It features only two machine guns, with a significantly reduced rate-of-fire and lacks powerful explosive rounds.

The Pyro has great range on its machine gun, allowing players to hit targets easier.

However, in exchange for that weakness, their range is much better than the Nokota and therefore easier to use. It also has an identical rocket system to the Nokota, which is great for dogfights.

4. Rogue

The Western Company Rogue is a trainer attack plane featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Smuggler's Run update. It has an impressive array of weaponry that can be operated by the pilot or copilot.

Rogue Gtao Front
The Rogue has more offensive options, with the most powerful being bombs.

The best part of the Rogue is probably its capability to install bombs, providing heavy firepower against ground targets. There are four different Bomb choices: Explosive, Incendiary, Gas and Cluster.

Besides that, both its machine guns and explosive cannons are powerful, but people tend to pick the machine guns, as they are ideal for air-to-air engagements. The Rogue's missiles cannot be fired continuously, similar to the LAZER.
