As in, no more drive-by sticky bombing. No more midair explosions. No more car chases and blowing up the car behind you. You get the idea. 

 

If Rockstar made it so you had to be standing right next to your target to place a sticky bomb how would you like it? I know a lot of the ways people use the bombs like I said above really annoy people, and I know some people out there don't use them much at all, so I'm kind of curious how people would react. It would definitely change things up quite a bit and it'd be interesting to see the different ways they'd start to be used by players. I definitely think we'd be seeing a lot more suicide bombings.

 

I've personally gotten much better at avoiding people's attempts at both blowing me up and also using grenades in the same ways that people typically use sticky bombs in the ways that I listed, so I would personally welcome it becoming a weapon that requires a lot more tactical thinking as long as they did it right.

 

So, GTA forums, what are your feels?

Leave it be. The point is remote detonation, not how it's placed.

I think sticky bombs are fine as is. Maybe add a secondary type of sticky bomb that had an added benefit if you can't throw it. Bigger explosion or what have you.

awesome idea.

give players time to defuse, only one thrown/det at a time.

stickies are not grenades... but somehow in this game they are.


you should have to call a number just like in the beginning of the main story mode.

If no more sticky bombs I want to be able to cook frags with a timer on screen counting down from 4. We have a deal, no?

I would like this.  Either that or limit the carry to 3 or 4.

 

 

Watching people toss sticky bombs around like a Monkey tossing poop was old a 3 months ago.

You should like throwing sticky bombs.  It's free aim.

Hate it :p

 

But I would love to be able to detonate one at a time, could make C4 a lot more tactical.

 

Also if they aren't throwable and don't really get to "stick" then they aren't really sticky bombs anymore, are they ?

Bring back the delay! I liked that 1-second delay with the bombs in TBOGT... you had to be great with timing just to kill somebody in a chase. This "instant detonation" makes them too easy to use. They're GTA Online's "noob tubes."

I've killed a number of people with it, and even I feel like it's a bit ridiculous of how it works. I feel like a pussy when I use sticky bombs...

The instant detonation is good on some survivals if you're the last one standing and are getting a bit overwhelmed.

Might make it more interesting. It also might be too big of a nerf. I've always said a delay would be better.

So the whole purpose of sticky bombs is throwing them? That, my friend, is called a grenade.

 

Bullsh*t.

Don't get too upset. If it was called a remote bomb and not a sticky bomb I would be more inclined to agree, but it isn't.  

 

If either of you played single player a little bit, which I'm sure you have, you should have seen in the very first mission what I believe the main "purpose" of the sticky bomb from Rockstar's perspective. In none of the missions does R* ever have you throwing a sticky. It just happens to be how they work, as of right now. 

OP obviously has gotten blown up quite a few times.

Yep, along the vast majority of other players. I've also gotten quite good at avoiding it because of that fact and now people just waste money trying. Now it's ridiculously easy to take out a driver who's trying to bomb me.

I do like sticky bombs, doesn't mean change can't be a good thing.   

 

 

Take a good look at them, folks:

Does that really look like something that should be able to be thrown and detonated midair?

You are quite wrong.  There are a few missions where a throwable and stickable device are essential.  Judging the Jury and Trash Talk to name 2 that I can think of straight away.  Not everyone has a Buzzard.

Hyperboling my point is not going to make it go away.

 

Stick bombs are already working like sticky bombs, he even said he had no problem dealing with them anyway. So I do not see a reason for you to want to change stickies other than either you don't like the current mechanic or wish it was something more to your taste.

 

If it's just a matter of personal preference then it's fine as an opinion, but trying to justify certain suggestions based on "how it should actually work" is never going to uphold to much in a videogame. If the developers find it to be unbalanced, then they probably will make the changes they see fit.

 

But so far stickies are pretty much working as intended.

Should cops be able to see you through walls? Cops need to be toned down.

Should any random player be able to easily get in a helicopter and learn the controls? We need to go to flying school now. 

Shouldn't slamming your first into a window really hurt your hand and may put a harm on how you drive? Gotta change that. 

How come the shotgun doesn't throw a person who first used it down? Gotta add a better knock back. 

Damn, how come these people are able to run and gun? No more run and gunning. 

There are some things that shouldn't be realistic, and I never see anyone complaining about these things. While the idea is nice on paper, this ruins the whole idea of sticky bombs. I personally never used them for throwing, infact I use them for roadblocks. It would still ruin the purpose if I had to call a damn number before using them or some sh*t like that. 

That, and it's good right now for facing off with tank spammers. Let it be.  

People shouldn't arguably be able to run while using the RPG? Gotta have them fly into a wall when they shoot it.

Ugh....  You don't throw those things, you place them

 

Hence why i said.  That guy just owned the whole thread.  Because the type of bomb being used is not a throwable.

I was referring to single player in my post, but what parts of those missions are throwing stickies necessary that other weapons can't accomplish? To say any weapon is "essential" in any mission is just silly when every weapon isn't accessible to low level players. Grenades can accomplish what sticky bombs can in almost every situation.
