I can call in the tank at any time like a lot of you. I had a brief cop murdering rampage in it... and then I was done with it. I didn't want to be one of those tank players who traverses the map looking for blips to annihilate, I think that's kind of pointless. As a relatively high-ranked player, it's my responsibility to not ruin the game for the lower ranking people who have yet to experience everything GTA Online has to offer.

 

Therefore, I am now going from session to session collecting my tank and parking it near a lowbie. Instead of exploding them, I beep my horn, get out, salute to them and walk away. The tank is theirs to do what ever they wish with it. Hopefully they can appreciate it and have more fun with it than I would.

 

Perhaps I'll enter a session where a high-ranking player is causing chaos with his or her tank. That should give me a chance to unleash a lowbie onto them with my tank. It's about time the defenseless had a chance to get back at the glitchers and so-called "elite".

 

I urge everyone in my position to do the same. More often than not, the player who receives your tank is very grateful and they will restrain from firing at you out of respect. If, however, they don't do that, you can always make sure to stay in Passive Mode. Failing that, if a low level player is as bad as the high level tankers, get your Sniper Rifle out and get things under control. :)

Hah I'm like level 155 and still don't own a tank. A friend let me drive his yesterday and I had fun. some dude kept following me around though, I never shot at him or did anything to him and then he showed up in a tank later and killed me in two shots before I had a chance to even look his way.

I also give my lowbie friends tanks too. Random lowbies without mics will still continue to be blown to smithereens because they're annoying

I'm going to do that sometime. I hardly ever use my tank. I think I used it against random people once, and that was just to see their reaction as they were on mic. I shot down their helicopter and drove over the car they were in (Not PV). Best thing, they weren't even mad. They were for some reason amazed that I shot them out of the sky and then just started laughing because I drove over them instead of shooting. After that I just continued on my cop killing spree.

Pretty much every time I get a tank, I'll get bored of it quickly so I just drive up to the nearest player, get out, and run as fast as I can.   Most of them don't kill me, and some do.  If they do, I just go in passive until I'm far enough away.

Doesn't the tank despawn when you leave the session?

*clap clap* you're amazing...you say

"I didn't want to be one of those tank players who traverses the map looking for blips to annihilate, I think that's kind of pointless."

Yet, you give tanks to noobs, whom you KNOW will do just that! You are truly foolish OP and this thread is a waste.

Most likely, yes. I don't exit the session immediately. I often watch the player to see what they do.

Damn, right in the heart like a burning hot dagger. You're mean. :(

last night i watched four guys in tanks pin down a passive player on a roof. passive player sends a message to a friend and some guy with a name like ip killer shows up in a glitched tank at super speed and blows up each tank with a single shot before backing out of the session.

 

not all lowbies are defenseless.

I like to air-lift tanks to hot spots in FM wars, just to spice things up.

turret will incline to about 50-60 degrees.

Spawn a tank and just leave it there. Tell nobody and let somebody discover it. Hilarious when they have a mic.

 

Goes something like this:

 

"A tank oh noes!"

 

then

 

"Wait is anybody inside that tank?"

 

then

 

"I think I just found a free tank!"

 

After that simply enjoy the chaos. If you want pick a handy spot and practice sniping them out of the tank, that's a double layer of awesome when they realize for the first time that this can happen.
