Okay so some guy put a 10k bounty on my head, so I of course tried to stay alive, thought maybe I could go for the achievement for surviving a day with a bounty on my head, right?

SO, I go to Blaine County since no one in the game is there, instead they're all in Los Santos, and survive for about 20 in game hours. I get a job request to repo a car for Simeon, so I figure I'll just try to avoid people and defend myself and go do this repo. A guy starts chasing me once I get back to LS, so I got away from him, cops are chasing me so I'm trying to get away from them too. While I'm doing that I drive by another player, he's in passive mode so I think "ah, I'll be fine, he can't kill me in passive mode and I can't kill him so I don't worry about it. Before I know it the guy shoots out my tire and then shoots me in the face, ALL WHILE IN PASSIVE MODE MIND YOU. Obviously I'm pissed, I probably only needed to stay alive for another minute or so to get my achievement and it gets ruined by bullsh*t, thanks Rockstar!

Was your gun out?

 

And you have a bounty on your head so I doubt you'd be able to go into passive mode. If it were that easy, everyone would get that trophy/achievement.

Passive mode currently only works while you're on foot.

I dont think you guys are reading what he is saying. Someone in passive mode attacked HIM. And I think they are able to switch in and out of it as they please.

if you turn off passive mode a little countdown comes up on the screen showing how long you have left in passive mode, it counts down from like 15 seconds still it doesnt matter they can still kill you regardless..

Yeah, but HE was in passive mode, meaning I couldn't kill HIM, and I THOUGHT people in passive mode couldn't kill others, apparently I was wrong. By enabling passive mode you are literally becoming invincible to other players, which is fine as long as you can't kill others (which is how I determined passive mode working) but apparently that is not the case.

You lose passive mode when you shoot your gun. That's what happened here.

Passive mode won't work unless rockstar actually makes it that you're invulnerable. Because even if you can't get shot you can still be ran over.

It's ridiculous. But with this new bounty system I can just put a bounty on anyone that kills me. Hurrhurr

The moment you pull out your guns, passive mode disconnects. You drove by him while he was in passive mode, he wanted to fight, so he simply pulled out his gun and was no longer in passive mode.

If the person who killed you was in passive mode then that's how it works. They're in passive mode until they shoot there gun. So no bug you just didn't understand it.

They are, it has a countdown of about 10 seconds. What's f*cked up is you don't know when someone is leaving passive mode. And it was still active when the guy killed me, he still showed up on the map as the little crossed out circle after I died.

This sounds like something you should be reporting to Rockstar. The icon on the map was a bug.

Bullsh*t, I have aimed at people while in passive mode before and it didn't even allow me to shoot. And if that is the case it's still unfair, a guy can run around all day in passive mode coming out of it only to kill people and then going back into passive mode so that they cannot kill him. Plus like I said only the user knows when he's going to de-activate passive mode.

you can jump from passive to active really fast... the moment you draw your weapon, passive mode is off.

I think you need to become level 30+ in order for you to gain that ability.

Can't wait to do that, after the one guy pulled that BS I did mark and kill him myself 4 times before the pussy left the game.

Well in their latest update, Rockstar provides an email to write to about your experiences with O. That might be an idea.

I think it may be bugged slightly. I was in an ammu-nation, and I knew there was a guy outside waiting for me, and the second I would open the door he would blow me away even though I didnt do anything (Hate people like that), so I just threw Passive Mode on to try it out and cautiously opened the door. The guy right away started shooting at me with a shotgun, and it worked for a few seconds, so I ran around him taunting him (only because he's a jerk) and then he killed me randomly.

 

Not complaining, just a funny story :p

Yeah PM definitely seems bugged right now, I personally only use it when I'm browsing the internet on my phone because I had a guy roll up and kill me before while doing that. I like the idea that I can't trust people and than any guy might kill me at any given time. I had a guy earlier drive up to me on the road while I was out of my car so I took cover and waited to see if he was planning on shooting at me, he stayed there and we stared at each other for a few seconds and then he drove away. The tension that builds is just so awesome, I love it. But it's not cool that a guy can be invincible and kill me without even cheating, but by exploiting a feature in the game.

Exactly, Passive Mode is basically God Mode, it's bullsh*t.

Should take longer to enter and exit passive mode.

 

The way it is now is def a bit of a joke.. too easy to abuse.
