Posted 26 January 2014 - 01:49 AM

So ive spent a little while trying to figure out how they work online o.O so i've upgraded two random cars with ignition bombs an attempted to well.. kill myself iwth them to see if they work o.O but i assume i'm missing something(mostly wanna do it as a way of driving around an if someone kills me for a random car they'll die when they get in ! >.<

but so far i've checked the phone incase it was like maybe single player where you detonate the phone on someones head... but there was no icon or anything ot indicate 'activating ' of bomb.

i tried activating it like you do a sticky bomb doesn't work. i'ved tried pressing every button cycling weapons ..getting out an back in the car.. an so far i can't see how it works o.O

so..anyone know how you activate them, or are they not activatable online? in which case why are they in multiplayer?>.< i wanna set my car to explode! i wanna get a car put an ignition bomb on it an park it outside! an then watch the security feed..boom! so any information on how you activate them would be nice..i could try the search function but i assume they wouldn't work well >.< since the general view point on this forum seems to be the search function sucks..so i'm avoiding it out of potential annoyance.

They don't work on you, only on other players.

The ignition bomb works when someone (not you) gets in the vehicle and starts it up.

I've yet to do the remote bomb, but I assume it becomes active once another player gets in the car and drives off. Once they steal your car you can detonate the bomb

If they did work on you, you couldn't "take the car and set it somewhere".

Hmm for those who have used bombs in their cars online, i have a question for you:

 

When you try to put a bomb in your car, it says it you will not be able to tune your car up any more. Does that mean if you tune your car up to the max (max performance, handling, visual upgrades, paint, etc.), you wont lose some of those settings?

 

But if you do put on a bomb on it, you cannot tweak your car anymore?

 

Oh, new question:

 

A car that explodes by any of the LS customs bombs: will you be able to get that back with insurance?

You can call insurance to get your car back after destroying it with a car bomb. After it goes off or you find a new session or do a mission the car bomb is gone and you can mod your car again.

Edit: no other upgrades are lost.

That's what I noticed - I was putting them on my car, and then some asshole would steal it and he would not get exploded.  I only had it work once.  If you need to renew them when you get dropped into a new session after a race or mission, screw that sh*t.  At $5K a pop and they go away after a race, they are too damn expensive for the new GTA0 economy.  :bored:

yes,from everywhere you can use your phone

Once you put bombs in your vehicle,you can't modify it anymore.But if it gets destroyed,it will be available to modify again until you put a new bomb

Did this once and it was glorious just because of the spot I put it in. I would try near Simeon's spot but that may take some serious patience.

leaving cars blocking the entrance of the main lsc is so much fun...

i normally put the ignition bomb, park the car in the entrance and shot the car so it looks like the owner was killed while trying to enter lsc.

there is a SC award for killing players with ignition/remote bombs, thank god i got it before the purge, its a really expensive prank!

Ignition : car blows up after a few seconds bipping when another player gets in ($5000)

Remote : phone contact to detonate the car immediately upon calling, regardless of who is in the car ($7500)

Yes but you pay the insurance. Remote/ignition bomb on an entity is funny but expensive.

I've yet to do the remote bomb, but I assume it becomes active once another player gets in the car and drives off. Once they steal your car you can detonate the bomb

You can detonate the remote bomb on yourself. I had a coquette with one and had detonated it but the contact was still in my phone while driving a stinger which was in the garage spot directly across from the coquette and that spot had been known for duping the coquette into it randomly before i put the stinger there. I called the detonate bomb contact and boom, lol. The coquette bomb had mysteriously duped itself to to the stinger.

You can also detonate the remote bomb even if no one is in the car. You can kill someone with it if they are close enough to it. I have used my bait car like that before at lsc. Some jerk was shooting people in the parking lot and he got close to my jb 700 so i blew him up with it. He didn't see it coming. In the billionaire days i used to leave the jb 700 at lsc with the remote bomb on it and some sucker would always steal it and get blown to bits as soon as they left the parking lot. Once after blowing someone up with it, i called mors and got a new one and took it to lsc for another bomb. As soon as i spawned out, some idiot spawn killed me and stole the car. He then drove past me as i spawned with my car as his "trophy". I took great pleasure in detonating the bomb on his dumb ass lol. Those kinds of kills cost me about $12k to get but they were well worth it.

Does that actually work??

 

The Hotknife if you have one is the best car for ignition bombs, thats the one i had the most success with.  People wised up to the pink entity parked outside LSC hehe. 

 

Any "rare" car will work for car bombing.  You want a car that someone else will want to take for a spin.  Or just block the front door to LSC with any rigged car so someone has to get in to move it and BOOM!

So you wanna kill yourself with an ignition bomb because you think it would be funny because you forgot you did it. Ok.

I have a stock Tailgater that I tried multiple times to bait with. Never actually worked for me though. Noone would pick it up. :(

It must really stand out to get people to notice it.  People would drive past my Hotknife then come back get in and BOOM!

I thought leaving it stock would make people think its just a NPC car and not one picked up by a player and would be more inclined to jack it.

I never had much success that way as well though.  Seemed to be the most outrageous looking cars would get people in it. ie pink cars with body kits.  With less cash around people are less inclined to blow cars up all the time.

It sucks that you can only really do it on PVs. I fully modded a stolen Sultan and parked outside the doors of LSC and when I climbed onto the roof to watch it had despawned. It's a good thing I was a billionaire at the time.

They should make it so that any non-PV you modify doesn't disappear until it's destroyed.
