I don't think that's very realistic. You can't expect a sniper to just sit somewhere waiting for someone to drive by with a bounty so they can be sniped. There's too many factors that need to be met for that scenario to play out like you're saying. I'd say 95% of the time, you'll be chasing them in a vehicle shooting up their vehicle while trying to shoot them. Sometimes that works, but you still have the problem of traveling to their location which is also a pain in the ass since you can't put a marker on a moving target.
I feel that jets are difficult enough to obtain that you should be allowed to use them if you can get one. It's a weapon and I agree that collateral damage is possible but whats happening is people are purposefully parking a lot of vehicles at the same place to grief a seriously armed bounty Thomas the Tank Engine. That's abusing the game rules in my opinion and I don't feel like it should make me a bad sport for wrecking the vehicles of people who ACTUALLY are bad sports by doing this. you get me? My actions were accidental, I didn't mean to blow up those vehicles but they meant for me to get penalized for blowing them up. It's completely the opposite of what rockstar intended with the bad player thing.
You STILL have the choice of a clean shot from a sniper rifle, you know that, right?
Your solution is to not use the jet, which is what I like using.
I get it that I might blow up player vehicles and be penalized for it if I choose to use one. That's fine.
The problem I'm talking about is when a bunch of players all park at the same place just to cause grief to someone like myself. Do you get it that they're the ones abusing the system here? I'm playing the game by the rules and they're abusing the rules to get back at me and that's the problem I'm talking about. Forget about sniping because I'm not interested.
I'm not opposed to being labeled a bad sport if I am indeed being a bad sport but I don't feel like I am. I feel like I should be allowed to use the weapon I choose and if I accidentally blow up a vehicle I didn't intend to so be it, sh*t happens my bad.
However, if my and my friends decide it'd be funny to park a dozen purchased cars then grief other players to get a bounty and run back to this spot just so whoever comes looking for us has to pay massive insurance fee's and potentially be banned from playing with his friends then that's really being a bad sport.
