But anyway I just think they I simply have to get rid of the tanks better at this game.

 

 

 

There you go, OP: I fixed it for you.

I don't even bother with tanks anymore.  Just a sign that the player driving the tank sucks at using guns.  I can snipe them and have blown them up with grenades etc. but they're just boring now.  Don't even enjoy watching somebody driving one on Weasel news.  I will send a Mugger after a driver if I can, right before I leave for a new session.

Thats just not gonna work. Muggers/Merc don't work if you leave the session.

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:


Same. Tank rounds are like music to my ears.

 

 

True that.

 

If you're up for the challenge then it can be quite a bit of fun, but when you're minding your own business they can be a royal pain in the ass.

 

It is hard not to be a cruel prick when you're in a tank, it's really enjoyable to be mincing people up and it is easy to turn into a c*nt. You know you need to find hobbies when you find the turrent-knockdown appealing though.

 

Jet, stealth attack on the back, snipe, or leave. The first time you snipe someone in a tank..oh man...

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

That, also bring back the fking bad sport for exploding cars.

Blow up someone PVs with a sticky bomb you get bad sport, yet the other guy can defend himself after in this situation.

Get in a tank and blow up 10 PVs you don't get a single bad sport, yet the other guys can't defend themselves against a tank, especially low levels.

Also Rockstar should fix the glitch to obtain a tank at any level, this is ridiculous seeing noobs in tank in every lobby.

Tanks should be on same timer as car sales once a day that would reduce the abuse by a lot.  Like another poster pointed out its all the idiots fault for ramming cars into them that made them such a pain now.  I remember when I first got mine took it for a stroll and wasn't killing anyone then an entire crew of jackasses just started driving cars into me unprovoked so I decided to blow the sh*t out of the entire session until I got badsport.

Yay another tank bashing thread, So original..I bet you people complaining about tanks are the same noobs who drive straight into them or start shooting your micro smgs at it. They are loud, slow and cumbersome, If a tank is f*cking you up then you most likely brought it upon yourself.

1. If your friends take up a large amount of the lobby, kick them
2. Teleport
3. Go off radar, get your own tank and spawn kill them
4. Have the lobby gang up on the tank and spawnkill him till he leaves.
5. Snipe em

That's not how it works usually, it's the noobs in tanks shooting you even though you are doing nothing to them or giving them any attention.

Tanks really aren't a problem at all dude. You can hear them from half the city away and if you check the mini map you can usually find where they are by the white dots disappearing just after you hear a bang. Simple don't drive/walk down that road. They are so easy to avoid that I think I've only been taken out by one or two so far.

It's just, I don't see the point with f*cking with people when they aren't f*cking with you. Just leave them alone and focus on the ones doing something to you...

I understand the logic here, however, being Devil's advocate, many players regard noncombatant behavior as offensive and feel it's their duty to rectify the situation by any means necessary.

I agree with the cool down time for the Rhino...I love my tank and find myself cruising in it often, 90% of the time I'm just looking to reap havoc with the police and noose but sometimes if I see people spawn killing or griefing in tanks I'll try put them away although I have been guitly of Griefing myself on a couple occasions...That is when I am venting stuff from the real world into the harmless life of gtao...TANKS RULE BUT DON'T BE A DICK WITH THEM!!!

Tanks is the only reason why i keep playing GTAO.I dont feel like shooting players doing their business but when i see a tank that gives me the right to snipe them till they leave the lobby over and over again.Once i sniped a tank griefer ,stole his tank and kill him 20 times with his tank

Tanks are for people who can't shoot, drive, or fly. Simple.

 

I gave my tank away last night to a low level and sure enough, they kill me with it. Retards. Probably bragging to friends about how they "stole" it.

 

I sent mercs, muggar, bounties, etc. after them for the rest of the night after that.

There's a lot of people on here playing the wrong game... They're forgetting it's GTA. Of course people are going to kill other players, go in tanks - if you don't like it, I suggest you play solitaire instead

I tried a lot of things against tanks, was never successful with sniping or buzzards. Last night I saw a white dot turn a corner toward me, surprise it's a tank. He blows me up. I immediately called mine, it spawned close, took him out in like 3 shots.

Parked it in the middle of the street, took cover near it, waited, sure enough here comes his rpg unloading on it. Pop cover and take him out, lulz ensued.

I haven't seen many tanks since the hotfix. Only seen maybe 2 in the past couple days and i switch sessions at least once every 20 minutes to find one to snipe to no avail.

Buzzards online are very easy to take out, best way to destroy the tank as you said is RPG
