Jake Chapter 4 Helicopter

I really don't know where else to ask but anyone have any advice on the chapter 4 Jake chopper section? Me and my coop partner are losing minutes on an otherwise solid run because we aren't getting grenade drops or getting the chopper to drop the rope. I'm watching others and they get grenade drops. Is it just luck to get them or is there anything to it? Is it luck for the rope to drop or can you manipulate it?

i can't give any tips on the rope strat because i've never tried that, but the grenade drops are complete rng. you can't even find them until you have the GL in your inventory at the end of C3, so basically the event with the helicopter and the javo at the start of C4 is your only opportunity to get the GL rounds. it's the main reason this category is garbage tbh lmao

There are certain boxes that have a higher chance of dropping GL rounds (the top areas with the pole as Jake, Sherry is in her upper section), but it is all RNG on what the Helo does, where it goes (targeting Chris/Piers more), and when it drops the rope etc. Only the movement at the VERY start of of the fight is scripted.

The fight is just awful with Jake/Sherry.

There is a consistent way to get the rope drop, Sherry needs to kill the grasshoppers as fast as possible (best way is remote + elephant killer) while Jake runs towards the right side after climbing the ladder, if any of the grasshoppers manage to survive, the chopper won't drop the rope, at least that's how it worked for me in no hope, not sure about amateur though...
