Why is the target told that mercenaries have been sent to attack them? Is that realistic? It detracts from the whole feature.
Also, we really need to be able to call Lamar and order a drive by on people. Again, without warning. Random car just pulls up beside you, windows lower, etc.
UPDATES from discussion:
- DRIVE BY by LAMAR
- Similar to the mercenaries, but possibly cheaper and less powerful?
- It would be a one-shot attack vs. a team of mercs hunting you down
- You would not be warned about like you do with the mercs. So, it may actually be more effective
Deluxe Drive By: A car/bus/suv blocks your path or rams you from the side, then another SUV blocks you in from behind, then they all open fire on you then drive off
Car bomb that you can send anywhere on the map. NPC drives car to location, gets out and runs, boom. And the location can be a moving blip where the NPC will follow your target and tail him and boom.
Call up a 5-star wanted level on a player which sends the full 5-star cop force at them and they cannot undo with a Lester call. And it lasts a certain number of minutes, regardless of # of deaths. So you can't just die to get rid of them. They will continue to harass you for 10 minutes straight.
- Take off the red dots
- Don't warn the target
- Add power to them, they have been underpowered since January
- Lower the cost
- Good as a distraction
- Give them tanks
- Give them Buzzards that actually work, the Air Support feature has never worked properly
- OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS/MISCELLANY
fw3 - "Hire Assassin," similar to the mugger but much more deadly and who can follow a player across servers or if the player quits, re-engages (like a bounty) when the player comes back. Perhaps the asssasin is either a sniper on a rooftop or some SMG-wielding person just as you pull into LSC.
CarimboHanky - lamar should have more gang options, drive bys, have a couple goons escort you or send some goons to attack a player, much like the mercs but less effective and more cheaper.
Sh4d0wX32111 - I want to pay Lamar to get all the gangsters in downtown to fire automatically at anyone who passes by for 5-10 minutes or I want Lamar to set traps (gangsters waiting at a specific location on the map you can choose from, excluding some off limit areas) that will fire at possible threats. Lastly I want Lamar to get me more doggy treats for chop.
TomKongPhooey - it would be nice if the drive-by was done by you tho. The car picks you up and automatically takes you off the radar. They then get to the target and you complete the drive-by meaning that 1) you get the satisfaction/disgrace of the kill/miss and 2) there is a chance of actually missing the shot and not the dreaded accuracy of the NPC's shooting skills. They then drop you off a block or two away again and your white blip comes back on. Now I'd like that to be implemented. deffo :-)
- Add in an apartment invasion feature from Lamar
- Allow buzzard strikes through apartment windows
- Tank Back-Up: Call them up and they arrive in 4-5 tanks and shoot any players in a four block radius
- Call Lester up to remote turn off player's cars
