At some point they had to have nerfed the Mercs, because they're useless now. Back in November-December they'd massacre you. Now they're pretty much bullet sponges. I like the idea of drive by's from Lamar, as well as doing away with the warning notification when Mercs are sent after you. You don't get such a warning when a mugger gets you, they just run up on you and do what they gotta' do. Same should be the case with Mercs. You're minding you're own business, then BAM!!! A hail of bullets from a Mesa out of nowhere. It would make them far more useful if the target didn't know they were coming.

How about a roll down your damn windows feature lol  I'm tired of fixing my car, only to have a passenger bust a window out to shoot at some stranger.

 i love how with the competition suspension on the turismo. you have to pay at least a 95 dollar entry fee just to customize the fricken thing.

 

get it fixed, drive out, " oh poo i forgot a thing" turn it around without hitting anything, pull back in. " is that a scratch on the underside of your car? 95 bucks please".

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

  • LESTER
    • 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.

  • MERCENARIES
    • 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
    • Drones
    • Call Lester up to remote turn off player's cars

I suspected that too because at one point you'd actually have to worry about mercs now they seem to set up 2 blocks away and are so underpowered its more annoying then anything but I've not been taken down by a team for a while. when the mugger gets you its great. out of nowhere you see this odd npc walk up and then it hits u that ur in trouble, but too late, you just got jacked and he's gone with your money. your idea with the mercs would be better than the giant red dots and the warning message. you MIGHT see the jeeps roll in. you MIGHT see the mercs set up around corners and you MIGHT see that sniper set up on the roof across the street, but if you don't someone radios in and gives the mercs the green light and you get lit up.

YES!!! it should be optional to fix. if I want to ride around with a semi-demolished entity let me and that's exactly what I would call it, an "entry fee" every time no matter what it is impossible to drive to LSC without some small scratch.......

Very nice list Scubadave!  Another ability I'd like to see Lester have is the ability to disable players' vehicles similar to what happens with a police bait car after it's stolen.  Of course, I can only imagine the amount of hate that you & your tank would get from Buzzard & Lazer pilots if that ever happened LMAO!

I just want Rockstar to add an option to where we can dial Lester to be able to place a Wanted Level on a player. The higher the Wanted Level you want to place, the more cash you pay.

Mercenaries with tanks? That's a little too much.

Liking the other stuff though, especially Lamar doing a drive by call.

yep thats high on my list as well.... add a 4, 5, or 6 star level on somebody that does not go away even after getting wasted. it stays with u for 5,10,20 minutes or so (costs more for more time) and follows u across sessions and pauses when ur in the apartment, or just let the swat do a raid on ur pad kicking down the door and throwing u off the balcony or hauling you out to continue the fun.

This might be an unnecessary bump to the thread, but I'd like it if we could set up road block, like the one from blitz play but freely in multiplayer, where you call an ambush on the player, and if he has a waypoint set on the map, 2 SUVS block the designated path and when the player comes nearby they blaze him/her up faster than a crack-heads marijuana. There could also be an alternative one to it called an ambush where you can set a road block at any Legit road on the map.

i would prefer ask lester to help me bribe crooked cops to give choosen player a stars ( each stars cost $2000 + $1000 cut for lester )

 

lamar has option to send some his gang members to hunt down players ( they may drive green baller and has micro-smg . but they less accurate than mercenary and less durable )

 

lester also has option to sent hitman , this is similar to lamar's and merryweather's . all hitmans drives granger and they has body armor , but wield combat pistols

 

also merryweather has an airstrike called '' sattelite guided missile '' . this change player's camera to top-down and sattelite view , when player mark the area , the Lazer jet will bomb the choosen area . unlike normal airstrike , it's more effective because it doesn't use flare

In a future update we will be able to call Lamar for 'Gang Back up' which will involve a gang arriving in multiple vehicles.

Rumor has it that the original title for the ability was called "Gang Bang".

Giving mercs tanks? Sorry but h.e double hockey stick no. The only thing they need is a decrease in cost.

Roadblock is a great idea.

 

Roadblock + Lester's Off the Radar + Tank Shift even better.

I think ambushes and roadblocks could be great together.

 

Ex.

Player A has a bounty, and Player B is after them. Player A sets a roadblock on him, and an ambush on the other side if he wants to take alt. paths.

Yeah... So money glitchers could molest people even more?

 

All of these cool additions would just f*ck the game up, for aslong as some players can cheat their way to riches. So no, I am not a killjoy, blame the cheaters.

there are some great streets in downtown LS with buildings on each side which would make escape difficult if you funneled people into it and had a road block at one end. roadblock, with just the turret of the tank peeking through, perhaps.
