Definetly the cheapest and easiest way to defeat the attack heli, take your time and heal. Concentrate on hitting the helis Rotors and it will go down easier. Avoid shooting the main hull as it has 10,000 hp by itself. Use regular 5.56 ammo as Explosive ammo cost is just n ot worth using on this.
If you can hold the M249 steady while the heli is approaching and hit the main top rotor, then you can most likely get it to smoke before it makes it to you in 1 clip.

MP5A5 can be used in a pinch, but will cost more ammo. Concentrate on hitting the helis Rotors and it will go down easier. Avoid shooting the main hull as it has 10,000 hp by itself.
You can technically take the heli down with 11 well placed Basic Rockets. However hitting a moving target with a slowish Rocket may prove to be difficult. As always Focus on the Rotor Blades of the heli. Using Rockets in combination with Ak47 is a common practice. If it's coming straight at you get a Rocket Shot In!!
"Wearing attire is also important for protection from bullets and explosives. Wear clothing and metal armor, if not try to find the best armor you can. Heavy armor is good but it can slow you down and cannot aim with the shirt and helmet."Rust PlayerPlays on Crime Wave Solo
"My typical loadout when it comes to taking on a Helicopter is a M429 with a 4x scope and 5.56 HV Ammo. If you don't have the M4, apply the similar loadout to an Assault Rifle. Also, build yourself a snipe tower out of Armored Walls and doors. Take into mind any chests close to the walks take heavy damage when missiles hit the walls."CelticEnigmaReddit Rust Poster
"What I find most helpful would be to find a tightly packed rock formation. That way you have the freedom to relocate and have protection from rocks. Which can't be destroyed by rockets. You may have a small Base somewhere nearby to spawn and gear up again."Furrious fritzRust Reddit Poster
"I went through two to three stacks myself when I was shooting the Heli. But that's also considering when I was a poor shot. When I got better it got reduced to two stacks of ammo."Rust PlayerWeapon Control
