My buddy and me managed to save up enough money to buy our goal in GTAO: the Rhino Tank - with the Lifeinvader Discount for Warstocks you get it for 1,35 Mio. $

You call Pegasus and it will spawn in certain places on the map e.g. at the police station or the horse runway in front of the casino.

Driving around and searching for other player with bounties on their head became quite funny. But as they are not so much represented on the map we decided to put a 9,000$ Bounty on our head- so the real fun began!

Every time when  player arrived and went around the corner they seemed quite astonished by the fact they were facing towards a tank pipe straightened towards them.
Before they had a chance to answer themselves the question where the f*ck this tank came from it already made - BUUUMM-
Amazing how fast this tank shell flies!

If you manage to shoot the cop cars (you get about 5 stars in 2 minutes in this mayhem) before you run overe them your tank will last forever!

This thing is maybe a bit overpowered and if more and more player will save up for this tool too I could imagine Rockstar will facing a lot whining and demanding for patching. So my advise: f*ck the adder, entity or the pricey appartement and get it as soon as possible!

It's so fun to play with, sometimes I don't even shoot people (certain people). I just go towards them and honk my horn over and over just to see a reaction. Sometimes they don't know what the hell to do, some people RUN for their lifes. Other people start to follow you, just to see what you do, and all of a sudden you have an army of spectators.

 

Bad Sports kind of ruins the fun though. Because if you have a bounty on your head, then good luck trying to kill the guy that keeps attacking you. As any little thing you do will get you bad sport. It's not enough that you pay their insurance.

 

But yeah if it wasn't for that, it'd be perfect. I had this one guy that I kept honking my horn to and wouldn't kill him (even decided to kill people that put a bounty on him). 15 minutes later, he pulls out a buzzard and we're both causing havoc on the streets. It was epic because we both didn't have mics, so we communicated either by honking horns, or when he was in the buzzard he'd fire to give me a signal.

yeah, the tank is quite interesting for the others. Even when you shoot them over and over again (which is by the way very funny ´cause they sometimes shoot into orbit) they will return because of curiosity.
 
One guy even tried to steal me with a cargobob heli but even when he got me on the heel i could still shoot him.

my buddy even managed to kill someone in a jet while he was shooting at him.   Quite a scenario from TRANSFORMERS :-D

You have to be rank 70 or something completely ridiculous to get the tank though.

RL friends and I have tanks and choppers. Honestly we just feel bad about rampaging through a public server. And you can't kill anyone because it's instant bad sport, not to mention people will server kick you faster than a counterstrike speedhacker. Kinda defeats the fun in the tank/chopper for us. They're cool to roll around in and show off, though.

 

Edit:

Yes each tank spawn costs 1000, and you just get it replaced.

This post is pretty much me with my tank, if I do go after anyone it's the guy who's killing everyone for no reason. It's a lot of fun to play with and really hectic. It's the most fun I've had with this great game so far.

 

It is a shame about the bad sport thing, I don't mind paying the insurance but the bad sport system is a tad ridiculous.

serach lifeinvader on google and log-in with your rockstar social club account. Then stalk everything you can stalk on that page. You will get 10% discount on legendary motorsports for example or a coke for free (ingame of course)

to avoid bad sport in a tank stop moving if an idiot decides to drive his personal car into you instead of bad sport he committes suicide and you are free to start blowing him up aslong as its not a personal car you're safe

 The discounts dont seem to work for me. I stalked all the stuff on Life Invader, but I dont see any discount on the in game websites for purchases.

I've been using a tank for the past couple days, its not a little overpowered, its EXTREMELY OVERPOWERED. While I was in it killing everything it just felt so out of place to the rest of the GTAO world. ANd the fact that most people don't have RPG's just makes it that much more OP. 

 

Back in good sport today though, used it once then stopped. Its fun as hell but I have a feeling R* is going to have to tone it down a bit, as in a long cooldown per shot or make it slower.

careful for griever to ram their personal vehicles

tactics for tank users :

-try not run over small vehicles & firing too close . it will damage your tank

-in order to notice ramming grievers , use map > look a player who toward your location > use lester invisibility > get to the dead end alley with cover > wait until griever ram your tank ( mistake them u aready inside a tank

-if u hate fire close range , then why not use its cannon as melee weapon ? . these were lethal blunt weapon that capable heavily damage normal vehicles by just one swing ( i've tested this , but it can fling vehicles) . it also useful for bombless players who getting closer to your tank

( this trick is enough to kill NPC driver by just slightest swing of the tank turret )

-if u notice a player coming at u while looking at pause map , get out and use sniper to shot the driver in head ( using heavy sniper put one stray round to up 100 lv player )

 

tactics for ramming grievers :

-rooftops like apartements are not enough for tank to aim ( unless the tank get little far from you ) . so pop the tires with snipers could useful / pull RPG to blast the tank

-its isn't recommended using p-966 or buzzard , as they can't locks a tank ( unconfirmed )

-bring your heap,trash,junk & beater personal vehicle as ram , use lester to stealth & ram the tank from behind ( do not modify the junk or else the tank identify it as personal vehicle )

I have to admit. when you see 2 people in one car racing over to grief you...it gives you a great sense of amusement to see the car swing around the corner and dead stop before throwing it in reverse. one guy must have crapped his pants because he backed right out of the session and left his buddy to fend for himself.

I would change a few things about tanks in free roam.

 

The tank driver should not face penalties if they run over someones personal vehicle, these are my reasons.

 

1. Tank is so slow it would not even be able to catch anyone to run them over if they wanted to.

2. People sometimes intentionally get themselves ran over to make the tank driver lose money.

 

Second I think a tank driver should not have to pay for blowing up someones car if attacked first. Like if I ignore a guy who is driving around me and then suddenly throws a sticky on my tank and detonates it (This happened to me before btw.), then that should give me clearance to blow him and his car up without penalty. He does not have to pay his premium but neither should I if I fired in self defense.

 

Its not like tank users have access to a weapon on the vehicle that does not make a persons car explode in one shot, its all they have.

 

Besides the person attacking the tank basically acknowledges that death is likely if they go picking a fight with a tank. Its your own fault if you get blown up as a result for picking a fight with a tank.

 

I am the kind of guy who just cruises around Los Santos in his tank, I approach people to see how they react. Its funny at times but it ruins the experience when some jackass intentionally runs into my tank and makes it explode to make me lose money. Some say you do not pay if the tank is not in motion but that does not work either.

 

Plus if I do happen to be attacked during my cruise I should be able to defend myself from any would be attackers stupid enough to faceoff with a tank.
