The Nighthawk is a weaponized single-seater aerial vehicle. It can be found at the Airport in a hangar beside the runway for 6,000,000, making it the most expensive Cash purchase in the game. It is the third-fastest aerial vehicle, behind the Cyber Plane and Warhawk.
The Nighthawk has the ability to fire missiles by pressing F. The Nighthawk's missiles deal 60 damage to enemy players caught in its blast radius. They can also disable air vehicles in one hit as long as a player is damaged by the missile.
At all times, a crosshair is visible on the pilot's screen. When not locked onto a target, it will be white and centered. When a missile is fired in this state, it will shoot straight in the direction of the crosshair. The crosshair cannot be moved, and the only way to aim through this method is by steering the Nighthawk.
When an enemy player is onscreen, the crosshair will lock on automatically by moving over the target and audibly beeping. Once locked onto a target, the crosshair will cycle through green, then yellow, then red. When green, missiles will shoot in the crosshair's direction, no matter its onscreen position. When yellow, firing will cause the missile to actively follow the crosshair. When red, they will seek and move towards the target. The missiles take a total of two seconds to fully lock onto a target and, once fired, have a cooldown of six seconds.
When the G key is pressed, the Nighthawk drops five bombs that deal 40 damage each to players caught in its blast radius. This ability has a 15-second cooldown.
When the R key is pressed, the Nighthawk enters a temporary invisibility state that lasts for fifteen seconds. During these fifteen seconds, it causes any missiles currently locked on the pilot to unlock. Firing missiles or dropping bombs will cause the cloaked state to end prematurely.
