I agree.

 

You can snipe them aswell, I don't find them THAT overpowered...

I think the rpg and the grenade launcher should get some buffs. In singleplayer tanks take just a few grenade rounds, but in multiplayer they have ridiculous armor.

I think if anything they should remove it from the pegasus vehicle list only. Have them accessible only from zancudo like the lazer. That way it would take some skill to get one like the lazer.

Absolutely. People shouldn't be able to buy tanks or attack choppers either. Just the fact people have to try to get them would make it not worth it to a lot of people. You would need a reason to waste that kinda time. Not always though ;) I like to have fun too sometimes.

Tanks are awesome. They make free mode far more exciting.

Tanks are fine. My only gripe is how fast the turret spins once you enter it, and how a single man can operate the entire tank, and how the American army is using a tank based on German designs.

 

Probably just because I'm a realism freak though.

If people weren't complete asshats by trying to badsport tank drivers by slaming their cars underneath them.. the Tanks would still get badsport for blowing your car up.

 

Its the community's its own damn fault.

much as i hate to say it, the bullet physics in this game make the heavy snipers own jets no matter what, thats to draw distance and things spawning in last second

this.

 

they should really up the power of the RPG. maybe make a sweet spot on the tank where one direct shot will have it beeping & smoking

A tank's weakness is its hind quarters as marked with a red circle, where the black vents are. I found out that it only takes 4 of any explosive to destroy a tank on foot. Best to use a Grenade Launcher if you have a tank with its rear-side exposed. It takes only 3 explosives from the Rhino Tank Gun or Lazer/Buzzard Missiles to destroy it from the back.

 

If you try shooting any explosives on the side or front side of a tank, it will take double the amount of explosives (that would be 8 with a grenade launcher for example) to destroy it since it has more protection on that side.

 

 

Jets can take out a tank easily if the tank has its back exposed, but usually requires 2 fly-bys or 15 direct shots to destroy it with the cannons. I wouldn't recommend going to low or if you are unskilled with the jet, since the tank can shoot it out from the air easily.

 

Also, a Lazer's worst nightmare are rooftop snipers. Snipers can get good shots with a Heavy Sniper Rifle from even 1000+ yards away if a jet is just flying in a straight direction and blow up with about 15 or so rounds. A jet is really flying slowly in the sky from a sniper's perspective as opposed to the person flying the jet thinking you are going really fast.

The way i fly, i never get hit by snipers in the first place, you need to know how to stay out of their sight. Best they've ever been able to do was a shot in my engine and thats over a month ago and i was flying in a foolishly low angle.

 

And while flying in a jet, if you just highlight all players in the area, it shows a fat gray marker floating above anyone including snipers/tank drivers LMAO.

 

PS any luck with your account already dude?

Remember, before you all became filthy rich with your hacker money, Tanks were supposed to be a High Value item available only to those above a certain level. You spend that 1.5 Million and spend the time to get to level 70 you want to have FUN with it.

 

Tanks aren't the issue just like Annihilators weren't the issue in GTA IV.

 

In fact there are a host of suggestions across this board on how to cope with Tank Griefers.

 

Hell I've been in many a lobby where the Tank Griefer ends up having the room turn on them because yeah, we all have tanks too.

 

Love my Rhino almost as much as I love shooting people out of theirs!

Best strategy on foot to destroy a tank in less than 5 seconds:

 

1. Call Lester to hide you from the radar

 

2. Get your grenade launcher out (if you are a lower level, sticky bombs will do)

 

3. Aim for the back side of the tank indicated by the red circle

4. Takes only 4 shots from the grenade launcher, and since it shoots very fast and accurately, you can destroy a 100% health tank in less than 5 seconds

 

Try it.

As soon as I'm entering GTA Online, the first  sounds I listen for on the loading screen are distant explosions. Then I know I'm going to stay awhile :evilgrin:

How about putting a timer on how often you can call your tank? Just like mercenaries and bounties.
