The use of tanks in GTA Online is getting out of hand. Every single lobby I join has at least one person trolling with a tank. What do I mean by that, you ask? Well, I'm driving around and then BOOM! Out of nowhere my Infernus explodes. I spawn back in, get another car, and the player destroys it again. This happens many times until I realize that the player is not being kicked out! What ever happened to being a Bad Sport after countlessly destroying someone's personal cars?

Not only that, but when I called Mors Mutual to get my destroyed cars back, they aren't free! I have to pay $9,000 for one of my cars! And over $6,000 for the rest! They were destroyed by a troll in a tank, not me!!  :cry:  Rockstar better do something about this.

Does this happen to anyone else? And do you think it'll be resolved?

It's a common sight. Really the only solution is to fight back with tank vs tank warfare, know how to rid someone of a tank or find a new session.

 

Thankfully there's so many players for this, finding a new mostly issue free session (tanks that is) isn't too difficult at all.

Yeah. Anyone know how to destroy a tank? That would be useful

... because I don't have the cash for a tank

Well i only use it when i have a bounty, if some guy is trying to kill me for the bounty i just blow him up and leave him alone. Though there is an instance where a guy managed to snipe me and steal the tank, i let him be though.

IKR? Reload time should be faster and it should take less damage from getting police cars ram under it and explode

Had a couple of great tank moments last night. Noticed that everyone was up by the Sandy Shores airfield. Rolled up there in the tank rampaging all the way. I thought it was just a bunch of people hanging out. They had actually started a little tank deathmatch. Much fun.

 

The other one last night was a moment where a tank rolled down the street and I shelled the crap out of it. Get a text with much rage. I realize it's a lvl 7 player. I move on, eventually decide to head back to apartment. I mug him out of the tank again and again and again. 4-5 times, including a couple of times with the same mugger. I was laughing so hard I was crying. Eventually he left, but not without much rage. He was actually calling for the tank, not just getting it off of someone else.

 

Personally, GTAO has become like a movie that's so bad it's good. As upsetting as all the problems are, the level of absurdity that I think it's reached I think actually has made for some highly entertaining moments.

 

Additionally, why is someone under lvl 10 even allowed to call for a tank, much less Pegasus in general? It should be something that becomes available at like, lvl 25-30.

 

I don't like having to dodge multiple tanks in an increasing amount of lobbies and I think what determines whether or not you get a bad sport/insurance cost when you destroy a PV is so ridiculous, bizarre and specific, but it's sort of become an "if that's the way it's going to be..." As I noted in another thread, GTAO feels a lot like you have to be a "pre-emptive jerk" before someone else is.

Yepp, with the latest update tankers don't have to pay for the personal vehicles they destroy. Sucks.

They actually do. Sometimes. If someone could explain specifically when that would be great. I've shelled a car driving, I didn't pay. I shelled another car from the same player - again driving, moments later - I paid. I've shelled a few instances where I randomly paid, but many where I didn't.

 

I ran over one, paid. Ran over some others, didn't pay. 

 

The only thing that seems consistent is that you pay if you shell one parked with no one in it.

I have recently acquired a tank.
I like to roll with it and don't fire until fired upon.

Needless to say I am shooting a lot of the time.

I found a nice way of stopping people from getting you out of the tank too.

Reverse and hold left, spin the turret right. Looks funny and makes you dizzy but nobody can climb on!

I just wish it was better off road. You know, like a real tank.

I also wish you could have a mate sat inside the turret controlling the machine gun.

bitch please, sniping is over-rated  and hardly anyone ever does it.

 

+ its really easy to counter or to see it coming, just by constantly moving and making sure there isnt a blip 500 meters away from me constantly staring at my direction....im fine :D

 

sniping is what noobs say they do when really they have been spawn raped for the last 30 minutes roflmao

Somebody took off with my tank earlier today.
I tried sniping them for ages but because we were in sandy shores nowhere near a sky scraper, I didn't think it would work.... just as my tank was going over the horizon, I get the message that I killed him :D

Lazers are available to players of all levels. They are pretty effective if you learn to fly them right.

That's total BS. I'm so pissed at R* for doing this. It really sucks for the people that didn't exploit the glitch and blow $1.5mil on a tank :(. GTA Online is basically being ruined by this. I'm definitely taking this issue to their website (if that will even help)

I start thinking tanks are not so hard to beat anyway.. i just bring out my tank.. get the first shoot and hes ded..  or its easy to avoid tanks, if you see a slow moving white dot, avoid it then.. or drive far away and look what it is..  many polices = tank

 

or get on a higher ground/roof and snipe them out.. 


btw, there as a kid (with mic) rank 70 i think, who was out with his tank killing.. then i brought mine out..spawnkilled him for 15mins..  lol,

Here's how you deal with Tank trolls.

1. Buy a tank

2. Call Peagus to deliver your tank and get inside it.

3. Approach Tank troll in your tank.

4. Call Lester and have him remove you from the map.

5. Ambush tank troll and keep shooting him until he's dead.

6. Spawn camp tank troll in your tank until he rage quits the game.

7. Send angry messages to the tank troll.

8. Celebrate your success by killing all the other peasants in the room.
