The Buzzard's missile lock is more trouble than it's worth; I just lost three kills in a row because of it. Had a bus full of players dead to rights with my dumbfire missile, but then the damn thing decided to lock on to a cop car two blocks over instead. It's also a pain in the ass during missions, since it almost invariably results in your missile tracking straight into the ground if your target's moving away from you at a decent speed. It'd be MUCH easier to simply lead your target, rather than being forced to fly almost perpendicular to your target and hope your rocket doesn't smash into the ground.

 

So is there any way to toggle aircraft missile lock? Or disable it completely?

No I wish though.

 

I wish we could lock on other targets too not just Military & Police and have the ability to disable them too or be able to select our target like using the D-Pad to switch between targets

Damn, I just lost a whole MESS of kills 'cuz of this stupid missile lock. I caught a Level 6 noob out in the desert without his car, but thanks to mile-off cop cars deflecting my shots, I only got to blow him up three, maybe four times before he ragequit.

 

Does R* have a suggestion line? Because this is a problem that could be fixed in under a minute, and it's really defeating the point of having aircraft.

That's why in san andreas there was a button for auto locking.

The lock-on is truly annoying and useless. I was a MARKSMAN with the BOGT Buzzard. I knew exactly where to place my shots WITHOUT a reticle, and it only took 1-2 shots to hit a moving target. I say get rid of lock-on and teach players how to lead their target. Or at least make the lock-on system selective so that players can choose whether the system searches for law enforcement or player targets in an either/or setup. Personally though, I can hit a car traveling top speed at a quarter-mile away with one shot. I do it REGULARLY. The lock-on was made for nubs who've never played an air combat game in their lives (my opinion).

You're right ... I used to be so bloody accurate with the Buzzard missiles in GTA 4, now I'm worse than a blind noob because of the auto-lock.

Serves you right for being a c*nt

My suggestion, don't be a c*nt.

 

I'm glad of it, it means we're all sh*t at it. No more elitist Buzzard twats who think they're hard for firing a missile. It evens things out, which is good. IF you don't like it, parachute out and, on landing, whip out your RPG or sticky bombs.
Sorted.
