GTA V has a wealth of distractions and side missions to enjoy and the Atomic Blimp is one of the most fun of all.

You can fly it, block roads with it and perhaps best of all marvel at how explosive it is by creating spectacular set pieces. To find it just look for the Blimp symbol on the map and when you inevitably destroy it, then use the contacts list in your phone to call up a new one after you’ve unlocked the first Franklin mission.

Blimps are nothing new in GTA gaming history, but this is the first one that you can fly and also the first one you can destroy. Just like the original Zeppelins, the blimp is full of helium and as such highly flammable.

In the video below we test it out against the unstoppable train and the trigger-happy army base with spectacular results.
